Last Saturday, our team got a chance to attend EMO NIGHT JKT: Love is for Losers, at Miss Qi, Melawai. The event is a monthly event held by Crowdsurfers.id focusing on pop-punk and emo songs played by DJs and performing guests. With regular performers such as Janitra Satriani and Dion Mashiro, and other performers such as Silver/Gold and The Boris Suit, Emo Night JKT succeeded in luring “emo citizens” of Jakarta to gather in this one night event, and sing along to emo anthems together.
As one of the most celebrated singers in South Korea, Kim Taeyeon is not an unfamiliar name to K-pop fans - and many non-K-pop fans. She has recently toured around Asia to promote her new soul and R&B-infused solo EP “Something New”, with Singapore as her final destination. This is the scoop on the finale of her Asia tour.
Last week, Mitski’s headlined a four-night Brooklyn Steel residency in New York City, supporting her latest release, Be the Cowboy. Gaining the first place in many 2018 Top Albums lists, Be the Cowboy is often recognized as Mitski’s magnum opus in her body of work so far; it differs from the rest of her albums as it embodies a diverse range of styles, instruments, and emotions. This diversity makes Be the Cowboy stand out, and this distinction also reflects in her tour.
