BeatFest with Whitest Boy Alive & Steve Aoki

Whitest Boy Alive Performing

Steve Aoki on Stage and Step Down to the Crowd

Steve Aoki signing on a Woman's Boobs?damn!
A-volution BeatFest 2008 @ Bengkel Nightpark on 29 nov 08. overall, yeah it's one of the most hippest event on 2008 ! with local artists like Efek Rumah Kaca, Santamonica, Goodnight Electric, DJ Hogi & DJ Dipha and also International Special Guest, The Whitest Boy Alive & Steve Aoki.
I arrived at Bengkel at 10.00 p.m. where The Whitest Boy Alive is about to play. Erlend Oye and his band is playing sooooo perfectly smooth with an incredible performance from all the band members. they play old tracks from their 1st album and some from their Upcoming Album. they also play some track like on the DJ set of Whitest Boy Alive. my favourite moment is when Erlend Oye teach about the basic of Dance Music, where first, Drum Beats, Keyboard kick in, Bass playing, and then we have to move our body.
at about 2.00 a.m. , Steve Aoki hit the stage. it's too bad i'm not there until Steve Aoki is done. but from what i've seen, Steve Aoki is one of the most entertaining DJ in the world. he even brought a "birthday cake looking" cake into stage. (i don't what's that supposed to mean). but yeah, like what he said at his Yard Sale at aksara before, He did Rock the Crowd that night.
It's one hell of a party last night! thumbs up!!

Yard Sale With Steve Aoki

Yesterday is the day where i met mr. Steve Aoki. Aksara with 707 held an event called Yard Sale with Steve Aoki. the event took place at aksara bookstore kemang, at 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. . On this event we can buy Steve Aoki's Clothing Line (Dim Mak) tees and also Dim Mak stickers. on the spot we can also ask mr. Aoki's hand writing/drawing and his signature. at 3 p.m. he must go to Bengkel for soundcheck (with Erlend Oye & the Whitest Boy Alive also) and at the end of the show, Aoki said "I See You Guys ROCKIN Tonite!!". yeah Steve Aoki!
