Out of Body Special Screening Room

Monday, October 11th, 2010

Alas, all great things must come to an end, as all great things do. However, when one door closes, another opens. Yes, the Nine Inch Nails concert is no longer showing on our Screening Room. It has been replaced with the Out of Body special gig from B-Side!

When Time Magazine dubbed them as one of the top 5 Asian music acts everybody should lend an ear to for 2008, The Out of Body Special took this as a worthwhile challenge for them to perform as well as people hailed them to be. Three singles later, it seems as they were indeed good enough for the rave, with music that continues to make listeners sway and bob their heads to. And that’s just the beginning. With this funk/rock band, the sky’s the limit.

It has been jam-packed with content with 7 songs you can enjoy. It’s like being at B-Side in the comfort of your own home!
