The latest edition of Fred Perry Subculture’s live music series, Sub-Sonic Live, stands in a league of its own. Previously known as Subculture nights, the live music event has donned a brand new identity this year. Hoisting its new flag, Sub-Sonic Live flaunts the glory of subculture in this epic night of sonic pleasure, visual feasting, thirst-quenching cocktails and beers and needless to say, good company.
An exhilarating turnout of close to 800 music lovers from different subculture groups brought the former UNSW campus to life on 9 June 2012. Vintage scooters greeted guests at the entrance and led them towards an enigmatic winding pathway lined with esoteric red beams of light and fluorescent light tubes hanging from trees. At the end of it stood an abandoned basketball court hosting the night of musical enchantment that starred a stellar line-up of Singapore’s finest music exports.
Dynamic female indie DJ collective, Ruffians, closed the night with a potent mix packed with hits from Pink Floyd, The Strokes, Two Door Cinema Club and Vampire Weekend, which spurred on delirious dancing activity on The Court.
Keeping guests cool on The Court were ice cream treats from Seventh Heaven Artisanal Desserts, chilled beers from Heineken and “The Punch Bowl” by 42Below – an all-new no- frills bar concept reminiscent of a nostalgic tuck shop where guests could select their juice mixers and fresh fruit toppings.
