One night in Saigon, a good friend of mine brought us to this awesome local watering hole

called Acoustic Café, which located at 6E1 Ngo Thoi Nhiem St., Ward 7, District 3, Ho Chi Minh city,

Acoustic Café is the place where local and international singers and bands  show what they talents.

The place quickly packed during the weekend when the time near to 9 pm,

it is a good thing we got the prime spot. The first band lead by Rex and Cathy.

Rex

He speak and sing English cover songs.

Cathy

These dynamic duo performed simultaneously with all top 40’s songs.

After 45 minutes, Leote came to the stage with a very explosive performance.

Leote Taylor

She sing many of latest female covers like Pink, Kathy Perry, Britney Spears,

Jennifer Lopez and many more. She carries solid and strong vocal with energetic moves.

This guy came in between every performance and rapped for few minutes.

I will update his name when I’ve got it.

Here’s where he and Leote performed together.

The next one is a cool lady, Ngoc Thy.

She carried evergreen songs mostly from The Carpenters such as “Yesterday Once More.”

She is as good as you hear directly from The Carpenters.

Ngoc Thy

The last but not least,  this old man with a young heart, Chu Minh Ky.

Chu Minh Ky

He sing Rock covers like Bon Jovi’s but with a twist. He sing it in Vietnamese.

When he started singing, the whole Café came alive! All the young patrons sing in unison with him.

You can find some of his performances at Acoustic Café in YouTube.

Overall, it was an unforgettable night at Acoustic with all of them.

Looking forward to be there again!

Britney Spears is a sad testament to the entertainment industry and the worldwide Media in general. The distance between the proposed reality of her publicity agents, marketing experts, music and video production team, management and family, and that of truth becomes greater everyday. There is no doubt that this former child star and fallen pop princess will eventually crack once more. Mental illness is not something that can be brushed aside, however commercially unappealing or unmarketable it may be. The fact the woman can no longer mime or move in time with her backing dancers and the “Prozac enhanced gaze” so evident in recent interviews reveals an individual still in the throws of an inner turmoil, manipulated and exploited for the financial gain of all involved.

The armour maybe chinked but the battle for market domination must once more commence, there is no time for sentimentality in the music industry. With so much at stake no one close to her dares allow the truth to ruin their chances of marketing this highly successful “product”. She is a martyr to her fame, and thus I have referenced the Shrine of Joan of Arc at Reims Cathedral for this piece. Spears of Destiny is the latest in the Indoor Street Art series available at PaulBaines.co.uk as a limited edition print (up to 44″ x 55″).
