Reviewing Great Music Is A Bitch

JYP TOUR 2009

okay people i went to the jyp 2009 tour……it was something i would never forget.

this show was my 1st and not last asian concert.
i was one of two latinos at the show.
it was pack there were only 3 empty seats in the venue.

Act.1 G-Soul
g-soul is an r&b singer who is working with jyp for 5 or 7 years (i forgot) he only sang one song……just one?
he has a really great voice.i can see him some-what making in to the radio stations and such.

Act.2 J-lim
like g-soul.j-lim is an r&b Artist she also sang one song.”music is my life”i loved it!,the song is a up tempo ballad.this girl can really sang
she is also VERY PRETTY. i got to met her in the loby at the venue

both g-soul and j-lim’s english was good,their akcent was not that thick.

Wonder Girls (Set.1)
W.G opend up with ” i wanna” i myslef love this song.
the dancing was kinda meh.sohee was kinda laging it,but she was sick
to me it kinda looked like 1 or 2 girls were lip syncing.
up next was “so hot” they did this song true.they brought their a game for this one.on to “this fool”….this was kinda blah they didnt dance that much all they did was shake their pom poms and stood in line.”irony” the rocked this song on stage.although once again sohee was kinda slugish.”headache” was okay nothing great.it was rather dull.they ran across the stage (they did that like 4 times)
“good bye” LOVES LOVES LOVES this song
the girls did a great job with this number.they got in to it
“nobody(rainstone remix)’ the girls sang this song in spinning chairs.
the girls show’d some of their strong vocal ranges on this song.

2pm Act.3
these boys cant sing,im sorry girls or boys.
to me they seem like eye candy.they can dance (not the greatest)
there outfits were rather funny looking.they looked like young pimps.

Wonder Girls (Set 2)
the girls were standing next to a piano while one of them was playing
they sang “this time.this was truly a wonderful perfomence.
after “this time” they said a little heart fill speach and went in to “saying i love”.then they walk off stage and they showed a mini movie about the girls.the mini movie was kinda funny it showed what had happend to the girls after they broke up. sohee became america’s hot new idol,yubin became a hip-hop superstar.”yenny” became the 1st lady of korea,”mimi” beacame a great lawyer.
jyp died in the mini movie,jyp had a reading of his will and he left the girls a gift,it was in a box the gift was a beautiful clock.
and they all looked at it like what the fuck?
then some how they transported to a another time when they were still the wonder girls.all t he girls were fight with one another…and poor little sohee was starting to get sad (we all go awwww)
so the girls felt bad and went on stage.
they come back on stage lip synicing to “one night only” -(disco version).then move on to “nobody tango”(inst)
then bam “nobody” they rocked this song,it had everyone standing up and dancing.then their last song was “tell me” EVERY ONE WAS SCREAMING! (even me).

JYP
i really dont know any of jyp’s songs so i coldnt tell you if they sucked or not.i liked 2 song’s out of 8 songs he sang
he kept dancing so much i got motion sickness.he brought a girl up from the audience and tied her up to the bed and sang to her
then after he riped off his shirt and slow danced with the girl.
jyp’s lights were blinking so much i got sick.
for jyp last song he started to sing a remix of “tell me” then the girls came out and fisnished the song. the end.

all an all it was a great show for this being my first asian concert
i got to me one of the singers from 2pm.he was nice.

Americian Bands I Like Prt.1

i am going to be talking about american bands that I like.
for anyone who knows me,i have givin up on american music for the longest time.
i am going to be talking about bands or singers that i feel could make it in the bizz

okay. I Came Across A Band Called STEFY like 4 years ago i have been to every show in California. it was to the point where the band members whould greet me by name and hang out with them

STEFY is a pop rock new wave band form Orange County
Stefy Rae (the lead singer) is a mixter of gwen of No Doubt and Debbie Harry of Blondie.
Sean (the Guitarest) was nice to me but alot of people say he was rude,i didnt see it he would be the 1st one to greet me.
Jason (the keybored player) he was really nice he would come up to me and start talking about upcoming shows and new bands.
Jordan (the Drummer) he was really cool.
okay enough about the band lets talk about the music.
STEFY knew how to put on a really great show they were so full of energy.they aim to please the crowd and they always did a great job of that.
their music was a wide range from synth pop to new wave ballads
they had some minor hits like “Chelsea”,”Fool for Love”,”Orange County”,”School Boy”,”Pretty Little Nightmare” some of their music can be heard in “John Tucker Must Die” movie (that movie is a stinker phew)

“Chelsea” was their 1st single it had a mixter of “Sweet Dreams Are Made Of These” it was a pop synth song with funny lyrics of a guy cheating with a girl named Chelsea.
“Hey School Boy” was their 2nd single it was a fun poppy song to drive too.this song is my favorite.
“Orange County” was their 3rd single a slow ballad about two high school lovers who had a baby and are trying to make it after dropping out of high school.
this song was tear jerker when they played this song live. she put alot of emotion in to this song.
“Pretty Little Nightmare”was their 4th single…and last
this song is a upbeat song you can dance to.
the song was a girl who goes around breaking hearts (thats what stefy told me).
they had little success in London they played some club gigs and such
they played some home gigs as well…..that was the last time they played as a band
just a month ago Stefy Rae hte singer had a solo show in wetshollywood.the guys are doing their own thing at least i seen them in concert.STEFY was dropped from their lable Wind Up Records
as a music lover i was sad about this,but as a fan and a friend to them i was glad.wind up never did anything to promote them as a group it was up to as their fans to spread the word of STEFY.
i asked Jason if the band is still active he told me yes so i hope they get to make their second album.

Lady GaGa

Okay i dont like many american music today but there are some artist that really get my attention.
and Lady GaGa is one of them
her music is a breath of fresh air
from dance heavy hooks like “just dance” and “lovegame”
to soft chill songs like “Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)” and “brown eyes”
her debut album “The Fame”is well a rounded album
its a mix of dance pop/urban dance/funk.
this is an after after party album to pick up the people.
GaGa is finishing up her europeain tour with the pussycat dolls
in march and april she is doing her own solo tour called “The Fame Ball Tour” in america.
