Swiss Band Starch at *SCAPE - Click to View Hi-Res Image

The Youth Olympic Games are not just about athletes and sports. Last night, I discovered the Culture and Education Programme at the *SCAPE Youth Park. There was a concert sponsored by Noise Singapore featuring youth bands from around the world.

At last night’s concert, I caught Starch, a band from Switzerland that plays a fusion of rock, hiphop, funk, and jazz. It was great fun watching them live, and I couldn’t help jumping when they asked the audience to jump with them. They have a great energy and sound, and after the gig, they were nice enough to snap a photo with me. I even chatted with them (and their sound engineer) a bit!

Starch are also playing at Raffles City tonight, and Bugis Junction tomorrow night.
