Homesick Album Release | Review

It’s no surprise if I start this off by saying that the show was extremely wicked. It was great how many people were in support of Homesick’s album release, and who can blame them? These guys have come a long way.

Before I entered to observe the show, I had a hard time entering in the first place, the place was absolutely packed, no place to move whatsoever, barely any place to breathe, I personally heard someone backstage saying, “there’s already over 250 people present!!”.

First up was Vik in a Tutu, and don’t let the name fool you, these guys ain’t no joke. Stage presence, they really brought it, now I don’t know what was better, the performance or the chemistry these guys share, cause it was absolutely awesome.

The band started off the show by playing hunting for witches by bloc party and by the time they reached the second chorus people were already going nuts, later on the band performed their own original song, leaving the audience speechless and impressed.

Finally the band wrapped it up with “the killers’ ” very own “when we were young”.
In conclusion, Vik in a Tutu were nothing less than amazing and they really put on a great show “way to go guys”.

Coming up next was the band that needs no introduction cause they’re the reason 250+ attended the concert, it’s none other than Homesick. People were really super excited to see Homesick perform, before the show I went backstage and sat with them for a bit, wish it could’ve been longer but there were people out there waiting for them to bring the fucking house down.

Stage presence, they were phenomenal, the band kicked off the performance with an intro, including their newest original “euphoria”, I would just like to point out that the band had a hard time starting the show with the audience constantly screaming at seeing their beloved band members, anyway as the show went on, the band reached their 3rd song for the evening “the confession”, with it came a surprise of the band mellowing down except for the drummer who gave a tremendous everlasting drum solo that made me personally put my camera down and start screaming my lungs out.

As the show went on, the band sealed the deal with their final original for the evening, “Homesick” which led to the audience sending Homesick off the stage with a shout out.


Congratulations on your debut album release and great job on a show well done.

Last but never the least was the closing band Pelikel. Stage presence, they were great. The guys kicked it off with their original “She’s Backstage” leading to massive and utter chaos.


Later on, they performed their other original “in a way” which was a real attention seizer, and finally closed up with their final original for the night “the sun”.


Nicely done guys, keep up the good work.

In conclusion, the homesick album release concert was a complete success, I personally give it two thumbs up, then again so were 500 other thumbs in the air, not to mention 1,000 horns.

Special thanks to the sound engineer Lara Nassar whom without most of this wouldn’t even be possible, and the stage technicians Farah Khodor and Iyad El Sheikh for a flawless stage performance and special thanks to Metro Al Madina for being a part of making the metal community what it is today.

In Santa Q Live Rock Show | GALLERY

Photos taken by Nancy Jdid.


In Sanity Q will be performing @ Quadrangle on December 20, and you better be there.

Why? Because your future self just sent you the following message:

“It is 2048, and I’ve been living a life full of regrets ever since December 20, 2018… For the past 20 years, I’ve been trying to invent a time machine that would take me back in time to watch In Sanity Q’s Xmas rock show. Those who attended it say that it was a night to remember… Unfortunately, right now, all I am able to do is send you this message… You better attend that show, my little self, or you’ll pay for it when the time machine is created. I’ll come and spank your little butt, like Santa spanks the crap out of naughty children… Trust me, kid. The last thing you want is to get spanked by your future self.”

Another good reason to attend In Santa Q is because you’ll have something to talk about when you attend other Xmas parties later on. You will be able to say stuff like, “You call this a good time? LOL. You’ve seen nothing if you haven’t seen In Sanity Q live!”

… All we’re saying is that this is a great opportunity for you to have a great time. If you miss us, you shouldn’t miss this.

Entrance fee is $10, and you get 1 free beer.
