Sofar Sounds x CUB House: Exclusive Night Live Music Experiences Through the Eyes of Young People

Sofar Sounds x CUB House had just finished up in style on Sunday, August 26, 2018, leaving us feeling nothing short of impressed and longing for more. Hosted at one of hippest venues in town like CUB House by Honda down in Ekkamai, all the elements were in line for an eventful evening organized by a global community of music lovers like Sofar Sounds. Hailing all the way from the city of London, Sofar Sounds presents a community of thousands of artists, hosts, fans, and travelers that have been putting on hundreds of monthly secret events across 418 cities around the world, with Bangkok being one of it’s latest stop.

One of the things that sets the Sofar Sounds x CUB House event sets apart was how it kept the venue and artist line-up confidential right until the very end. With all the information being undisclosed only about 24 hours or less before the event, it means that all the attendees are left bewildered right from the event announcement and tickle sales all the way until the revelation. While this was a thrill in itself to see whether your personal favorite act would make the list or not, it also showed the level of confidence the fans had for the organizers.

Image-Suthita Chanachaisuwan kicked the night off slow and steady with her signature concoction of delightful tunes and sweet vocals. Within her own little space at the center of the venue, she took the entire audience on a journey with hit songs like “Not a GoodBye” and “Sweet Nothing” (by Gabrielle Aplin) that kept everyone relaxed and the atmosphere laid-back on through the night.

As soon as Image finished up her last song, it was the turn of Alternative Rock band Zweed n' Roll to take center stage. For a whole captivating hour, everyone in CUB House was struck with an endless stream of unique soulful vocals and deep sounds that got emotions running high and wild. Just when you think it couldn’t get any better, the band was joined by Aey-Kuljira (from The Voice Thailand) who took the energy in the room to another level.

After a short break, the crowd was then treated with a heart-warming performance from Max-Natthawut Jenmana. His unique acoustic style and touching lyrics got the audience singing along in no time. It was then time to close the night out with Gym and Swim, one of the top Indie bands in town that is known for their English lyrics and futuristic Electronic sounds. Towards the end of the show, everyone was up on their feet dancing alongside the lead singer up until the last note. Just as everybody thought the show ended, the band popped out and responded to the calls for encore with 3 more!

Sofar Sounds x CUB House ended on a high note as a unique musical experience, but it also was a symbol of something more. It marked to coming together of top-quality artists, a diverse set of audience, and a trendy event venue, all of which reflects the lifestyle of Millennials who often look to find balance between work and leisure. That is why CUB House was selected as the locale for such event as it is one of the few places in town that are able to offer such a unique experience as we’ve seen.

Located in Soi Ekkamai 3, CUB House might just be one of Bangkok’s coolest lifestyle spaces at the moment. Inside the so-called “Co-Creation Lifestyle Space”, you’ll find a cafe serving up refreshments run by Greyhound Coffee, a flagship store where you can customize Honda classics like the Honda Monkey and Honda C125 into the motorcycle of your dreams, and a fashion store where you can find the CUB House Capsule Collection that was created from the collaboration between Greyhound and Honda Collection.

If you want to know what a fusion between the young cafe culture and creative space looks like, then drop by CUB House in Soi Ekkamai 3 for a nice cup of coffee and maybe even a motor-themed meal. Who knows? You might find yourself moving away from traditional themes of arts and entrepreneurship into the realm of motorcycles and gear heads in no time.
