The summer of indie love.
Indie music lovers, get your calendars out because gig organizer Medium Rare has now revealed the full lineup for Summer Sessions, a six-gig series that will take place throughout April and May at Noma BKK.
New Zealand's Connan Mockasin will be kicking off the series on Apr 5. Known for creating unique psychedelic pop, Connan and his band members released their first full-length album, Please Turn Me Into The Snat, in 2010, though you can also expect to be treated to tracks from Connan's 2018 album, Jassbusters. Early bird tickets are currently on sale at B990, while general admission costs B1,290 via Ticketmelon.
Next on the lineup is the dreamy Mellow Fellow (Apr 11), a self-proclaimed "internet artist" who most recently released the album Jazzy Robinson in 2017. He will be joined by London-based pop band Still Corners, who formed in 2007 and are best known for their track, “In the Middle of the Night.” Early bird tickets are B1,290, or GA will be B1,590 here.
The American dream-pop darlings Wild Nothing will return to Bangkok for the second time on Apr 17. The band is best known for the track "Chinatown," which was featured in the Netflix original movie To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, but the concert is also sure to feature their latest and fifth album, Indigo. Early bird tickets are B1,290, or GA will be B1,590 here.
On May 17, 20-year-old American rapper Jimothy will take the stage. The Camden-raised artist achieved fame after releasing his song “Getting Busy” on YouTube last year. Tickets are B990 here.
Closing the summer of indie love on May 22, Norwegian indie pop extraordinaire Jakob Ogawa will provide a different vibe with his sensual, romantic hits, like "All Your Love" and tracks from his most recent album, Bedroom Tapes. Early bird tickets B990, or GA B1,290 here.
Though the first release of combo tickets has already sold out, you can purchase a ticket covering all six gigs on second tier for B2,590 on Ticketmelon.
