Bangkok is filled with many independent and incredibly talented performing artists. If you enjoy live music, spoken word poetry, comedy, art, photography and even partying, and you are in Bangkok on May 23rd, then come and check out Signal Flair, a night that will be filled with all of the above and much more.
The location will be at the newly opened L’After Club on Thong Lor Soi 18 and the night will go on until 3am.
Doors will open at 7pm. Begin the night being wowed away by Phaisal Guladee’s collection of photographs. These will exhibit his works over the past year, including phenomenally shot portraits seeped in fashion, lifestyle choices, Bangkok city-life and music.
Following this, at 8pm some spoken word poetry will be performed by Chris Aldana, Grace Pasco, Kirsty Turner and Arrielle Hudgies, some talents who have been killing it recently at the spoken word poetry nights housed by the famous Bangkok Lyrical Lunacy.
9pm will be the time to anticipate much laughter as Delfin Solomon, Stacy Williams and Graham Wooding take the stand-up comedy stage.
10pm will see live musical performances from the gifted Alex Sypsomos, singer, songwriter and guitar player, and UNDA, Hip-Hop producer, rapper and sound artist extraordinaire.
From 11pm onwards, AKA the after-party, DJ Luck-E will be playing a four hour set, spanning the distances between house and old-school hip-hop. He specialises in after-parties, having done them for the likes of JAY-Z, Kanye West, Busta Rhymes and Sisqo even… remember him?! In his spare time he is a resident DJ at Above 11, on Soi 11, and also hosts the Hip-Hop night DOPE AS FUNK. He has also performed at festivals such as Tomorrowland (2004-2012), Antwerp is Burning (2004) and Laundry Day (2012).
More Details About the Performing Talents:
Phaisal Guladee is portrait, fashion, lifestyle and concert photographer who developed an interest in photography at a young age. He has always shown a love for composing beautiful images throughout his career.
Chris Aldana is a real talent in the poetry scene here in Bangkok. She is a half Filipino/half American poet who has been gracing audiences with her beautiful words, well known for poems regarding her culture and the portrayal of women in today’s society. She is almost always caught performing with the popular spoken word poetry organisation Bangkok Lyrical Lunacy, in and around its various venues of Bangkok.
Grace Pascoe is a newcomer to the poetry scene, a Filipina-Japanese cutie and beauty who has lived three quarters of her life in America. She is a real wordsmith and ukulelist. She made her debut as a spoken word poet with Bangkok Lyrical Lunacy this year engaging audiences with her poetic talent and her ability to mesmerise people with her voice and ukulele.
Kirsty Turner is British and has been a poet for the last twelve years. She is also owner of the awesome Bob Harley Bar on Udom Suk. She spends a lot of her time exploring the Bangkok’s vibrant nightlife scene which is what inspires her to get damn creative with her poems. She is also the author of the book Confessions of a Coward: An Indian Adventure, which is available at www.bangkokbooks.com and focuses on her nine month journey through India and Nepal.
Arrielle Hudgies’ words will literally blow you away. A very new addition to the Bangkok poetry scene, she was in a Nation-wide American poetry competition where she was placed in the Top Ten Young Poets of the country. Words that describe her writing style are daring, controversial, political and relevant.
Delfin Solomon is an Indonesian comedian, who has been a stalwart of the Bangkok comedy scene for a few years and also a local favourite. He frequently performs jokes based on current events and the news, hoping to create awareness through laughter. Some of his jokes involve his experiences traveling around the world and living in Thailand, as well as jokes based on pop culture, music, and movies.
Stacy Williams comes to us all the way from San Francisco, America. Stacy Williams has been another popular favourite in the Bangkok comedy scene for the last two years, with a reputation for guaranteed laughter.
Graham Wooding, another regular in the Bangkok comedy scene, is a professional British and international comedian of ten years, having performed in Europe, Asia and Australia. He started in the UK opening for Michael Winslow and Stephen K Amos as well as performing in four Edinburgh fringe festivals. He has also been on TV for the Paramount Comedy Channel.
Alex Sypsomos, Bangkok’s well-known Singer/Songwriter, considers himself a citizen of the world. As a graduate from Berkley Music School located in Boston, he currently performs his music all over Bangkok. His love for people and different cultures has given him much inspiration throughout his music career. Alex is in line to become one of the top emerging music artists in the South East Asian region.
UNDA is a music producer, vocalist, and sound artist in Bangkok, Thailand AND Atlanta Georgia. As a graduate of the Savannah College of Art & Design, UNDA’s musical style is a mix of hip hop, electronica, jazz, and soul blended with deep abstract vocals. As a sound artist, UNDA has worked on several international art installations (including James Franco’s ‘The Dangerous Book Four Boys’ in NYC) and has also engineered sessions with Grammy award-winning artists. Most recently, UNDA worked on the sound and music for a documentary film on the underground music scene in Japan. His latest self produced and written EP, “747” can be found at UNDAWORLD.COM. UNDA is also the resident MC at Bangkok’s DOPE AS FUNK parties.
DJ LUCK-E is a true music aficionado, and made his debut in Spain at the tender age of fourteen, when he turned the crowd to his hand even though he was legally too young to even enter a club. Deciding it was too tough for a young kid to get gigs in his hometown of Antwerp, Belgium, he moved on to create and promote his own parties instead. He launched the Fresh Mode concept in 1999, which quickly became a huge hit and since then has never looked back. DJ Luck-E is currently based in Bangkok where he continues to spin his favourite beats, and hosts his popular monthly concept DOPE AS FUNK (#DAFBKK) while hatching ideas for new grind-worthy concepts.
So, if after that rather detailed description you are still not convinced that you want to attend Signal Flair… well… what’s wrong with you?! Hoping to see as many of you possible on the night
