Gig #115

Keeping up with my once a month performances since my (triumphant lul) return to gigging this year, I’ll be performing again at the KL Journal hotel this week. I’ve finally finished one of the songs that was half-complete the last time I performed it so, I’m pretty stoked about it. Hopefully I don’t forget the words. Anyway, hope to see some of you guys there this time around! It’s a real chill place with great atmosphere. Do drop by for some chill tunes and chill beer.
