I ran into Teerwat Ukris “Art” (Jinta) while walking from Sanam Luang where the 511 dropped me off to Museum Siam – didn’t recognize him with the short hair until he performed solo in the Music Shop performance area. I would have offered to help him with his gear had I recognized him. Apologies Art!

Regrets – I wasn’t able to see everything and on Saturday night a last minute decision to go to Studio Lam for Japanese folk songwriter Ichiko Aoba and LALA meant I missed Beer Soranut and John Will Sail although I should note I did catch Cyndi Seui and Gramaphone Children featuring Beer on the big stage on Sunday night – that definitely got the crowd moving. And the crowd was erupting for The White Shoes and Couples Company from Indonesia.
While I was aware of the film festival, I missed it. Hopefully those films will be available to view somewhere else.
I missed Panic Station, Casiotone and Naked Astronaught. Next time! I missed Third Person as well, the band formed by Ten from Philosopher Brothers. Damn! Will have to wait til next year.
I'd love to hear your favorite performances at Noise Market and what you bought if anything from the many musicians and artists and selling their merchandise. I bought a Plastic Section CD as a gift and received a Basement Tape button as a gift. Not a bad score. Looking forward to Noise Market 6.
OK, I am going to go listen to some Strange Brew now. ;)
