Marie Digby live at Velvet Underground

Someone send me a facebook event few weeks ago about Marie Digby performing live in Malaysia. Wow…. Marie Digby is coming to Asia to perform? But the problem is, the performance is in KL. How to go?
Then there was rumors that she will be performing in Singapore before the Malaysia performance. Problem is, I couldn’t find any information about it. It was only after lots of asking around and searching did I found out the date and venue of the performance. But I don’t have any tickets.
So I guess I’m not going to watch her perform live in Singapore. But I was wrong. Unfluff twittered saying she has 2 free tickets to the first 2 person who PM her. Problem is I can’t PM her because she is not following me. So I told Ridz about it as I knew he wanted to watch Marie Digby too. Idiot, he got the tickets already!
But he help me PM unfluff for the tickets. Woo Hoo! (Unfluff: If you are reading this, I can’t PM you because you aren’t following me on twitter.)

Entering Velvet Underground was a challenge too. There are several queues forming outside. Apparently, there is another event in Zouk. Took a while for us to figure out which queue is for Marie Digby. We were lucky to be able to squeeze to the front of the stage.

Marie Digby performed several songs from her album like “Say it again”, “Fool”, “Unfold” and not forgetting “Umbrella“, the song attracted 6.7million views on youtube.
It was a very short performance which lasted roughly 45 minutes. Didn’t get enough. Wanted to shout “Encore”, but everyone seems quiet. Maybe it’s a Singaporean thing.
Many thanks to Unfluff for the tickets and Ridz for helping me collect the tickets.
Marie Digby – Unfold

What I can remember
Is a lot like water
Trickling down a page
Of the most beautiful colors
I can’t quite put my finger
Down on the moment
That I became like this…
You see I am the bravest girl
You will ever come to meet
Yet I shrink down to nothing
At the thought of someone
Really seeing me
I think my heart is wrapped around
And tangled up in winding weeds
But I don’t wanna go on living
Being so afraid of showing
Someone else my imperfections
And even though my feet
Are trembling
And every word I say I’m stumbling
I will bare it all… watch me unfold
Unfold
These hands that I hold
Behind my back are
Bound and broken
By my own doing
And I can’t feel
Anything anymore
I need a touch to remind me
I’m still real
But I don’t wanna go on living
Being so afraid of showing
Someone else my imperfections
And even though my feet
Are trembling
And every word I say I’m stumbling
I will bare it all… watch me unfold
Unfold
My soul
It’s dying to be free
You see… I can’t live the rest of my life
So guarded
It’s dying to be free
It’s up to me to choose…
What kind of life I lead
Cuz I don’t wanna go on living
Being so afraid of showing
Someone else my imperfections
And even though my feet
Are trembling
And every word I say
I will bare it all… watch me unfold
Unfold
I will allow someone to love me
I will allow someone to love me.

  1. Argh! Sorry dk…I thought I had followed you ages ago (but I did have a few days of intermittent Twitter behavior so…)
    Anyway I’m following you now!
    I have to add that kudos goes to my friend from Soundbuzz who had tix to spare. I was just helping to spread the word 🙂
