PitchYrCulture Playlist (Mix #1): Before-It-All
Friday, September 16, 8pm
Culture Club, Lower Elgin St, Central, Hong Kong

Before-it-all: Do you remember the first song that made an impression on you or meant something to you, when you were really young, before you started to care what other people liked, what other people thought of you, before you needed to be cool or fit in, before you cared what was ‘in’?

那時那刻  -  你還否記得, 當你在年少輕狂、 無所顧忌的歲月裏,在你尚未畏懼世俗眼光、我行我素之時,  第一首令你難忘或是別有意義的樂曲?

This program is Free and Open to the Public
This program is mostly in English with some Cantonese
