A night with: The Merriweather Deer

By Justin Potter

Intimate venue, great wine, bean bags and great tunes. Sounds like a decent gig? Thats sums up the Merriweather deer gig last night at The Platform, check out pics below for more!

 

The Platform is a newish event space on top of the Opendoor Cafe located in Sai Ying Pun. The size was perfect for an intimate gig, and if you were lucky enough to be near the front you were welcomed by bean bags and cushions covering the floor. We ended up bringing some wine (from www.cuvees.com of course) which went down great with the crowd, maybe because it was free?  It was great to see some familiar faces and meet new ones for those who came to hang over at our little merch table.

The night was opened by Karmen Cheung who played a great solo acoustic set. It was the first time i had heard this talented singer / songwriter, solid! Will definitely keep an eye out for future shows!



The Merriweather Deer didn’t disappoint as usual, playing a electro/acoustic set of a mix of old and new material as well as a couple of sick covers. Awesome energy and talent again from the boys,  we can’t wait for the new album to come out. Lighting and sound was solid too!



Thanks again TMD for letting us part of the event!
