Imagine Dragons wasn’t on my radar for “concerts I have to see no matter what”, but I have to say Thunder off their third album Evolve was one of my favourite tracks last year and the prospect of listening to it live was enticing. As luck would have it, a friend scored free tickets and […]Read more "Concert (7 Jan 2018) – Imagine Dragons"
On hindsight it feels presumptuous to title the same post I did last year Best Albums of 201*. I am a mere music fan who indulges only in selective genres, so I am going to title this what it is, My Fave Albums of 2017.

Hong Kong-based singer-songwriter G.E.M. may be diminutive, but she packs a powder keg for a voice. Even in pumps she is still a head shorter than the dancers, but what she lacks in height she fills it up with her stage presence and A-game. This is her second time here. Back in 2015, she sold […]Read more "Concert (13 Aug 2017) – G.E.M. (邓紫棋)"
