You can definitely call Starry Nite an annual tradition for many SMU students, where they party to a night of mind-blowing and just-plain-awesome music on the last Friday of each semester. This semester’s gig, with the theme “Illuminate”, was definitely not one to be missed.
Usually Starry Nite bands cover some of the most iconic songs, whether current chart-toppers or timeless rock classics. This year, however, the bands performed original songs of their own. It’s part of SMU SoundFoundry’s efforts to promote local bands, in Singapore and in SMU.
We went backstage to catch up with some of the Starry Nite bands to find out what it was like to jam together and create your own music. Get ready to rock on!
