BAM! – Gow’s birthday live at Lega
It became a tradition for Gow to do a live performance on her birthday. Last year, it was incredibly good but this year it was even better. At some point while watching her, I thought to myself – who is this girl? She can easily give Beyonce run for her money. Not only it was a full 2 hour live performance, it was accompanied with a specially made movie that connected each song into a story and it had a bunch of different dancers – Latin, Indian, hip hop and even pole dancers!! There were other musicians too like Girls’ talk and a team of beat boxers. I really enjoyed watching that whole musical extravaganza – it was nothing like I have ever seen before from her. Every year she is doing something fresh, challenging new things and with such force!! She really did a great job!
I especially liked the mash-up of traditional Japanese enka song with Chicago’s “All that jazz”.
When Kaz was beatboxing, girls were giving out Tequilla to the crowd. When will I drink again? I haven’t had alcohol for almost two years now..
The final performance was very powerful. All the dancers came onto the stage and danced with Gow. I can’t imagine how long it took for her to organize everything. I can never do that..
After the live, I had a little bit of time to mingle with my old friends whom I only meet at such big events nowadays. Gow, Diana and me used to do Sma-station together for four and a half years and it was almost a decade ago.. Time flies mindblowingly fast..
Shelly was there too. I became obsessed with her show “Zipangu”. It is really interesting and I learn a lot from it.
Now, I am organizing my own birthday party and I can’t even get 10 people to come… Sounds sad but the truth is with everyone working at their own schedules, it is really hard to find a day when EVERYONE can make it.. I really have no idea how Gow managed to do just that!
