(中文翻譯在下)

Before The Devil Wears Prada ‘s first show in Hong Kong, guitarist/clean vocal Jeremy DePoyster said to me “…… (live show) is a creative vessel to get some of our ideas out there…” And I got his meaning right away. I knew it was going to be another kick ass show –  from the determination I saw in their eyes at the interview, and my experience of seeing them in Chicago in 2013.

在 The Devil Wears Prada 演出前,他們的吉他手/主唱 Jeremy DePoyster 在訪問中跟我說 ” …… 尤其是在表演中,這是一個實踐創作意念的渠道。 ”當時我完全明白他的意思。從他們眼裡看到的決心,以及我在到他們家鄉芝加哥看過 The Devil Wears Prada 的演出,我知道這將會是另一個很棒的表演。

Recalling last time seeing The Devil Wears Prada in the States in a music festival, I were blown-away by these guys’ energetic performance, especially vocalist Mike Hranica‘s impeccable stage acts and powerful scream. Before they stepped onto the stage, I had my curiosity of  how TDWP would put out the show in a small venue. My first concern – how could Hranica be possible to bounce around on that tiny stage?

回顧上一次看到在美國一個音樂節看到 TDWP,我完全被他們精力充沛的現場表現迷倒了,尤其是主唱 Mike Hranica無可挑剔的強大叫喊和舞台感染力。而他們在踏上香港 Hidden Agenda 的舞台前,我很好奇 Mike Hranica 怎麼可能在這個小場地像大型音樂節舞台上跑跳? (不要誤會,我個人其實喜歡較細小的埸地)

Okay he proved he could. Mike Hranica had screamed his heart out in the 80-minute show – on the floor, upside down, left-to-right, at-your-face. There was no breaks throughout the suffocating performance except the 1-minute greeting in between. I always have a feeling that, when the guitar and drums are on, the inner monster will be pulled out from Mike Hranica’s body. While on one side the screaming that captured your attention, on the other Jeremy DePoyster’s clean vocal brought to you the perfect time for signalong.

好吧,事實他證明了他可以淋漓盡致地在細小而親切的埸地作表演。Mike Hranica 在80分鐘的演出中,令人窒息的演出: 左到右,在地板上,甚至倒立!除了中間1分鐘的問候和介紹外,他們沒有休息。我常覺得,每當吉他和鼓聲響起時,Mike Hranica腦內的怪物便會從身體拉出來。他對演出的投入實在令人讚嘆。當 Mike 的叫喊一邊吸引你的注意力,另一邉 Jeremy DePoyster 的 clean vocal 令你忍不住跟着他合唱。

The aggression and passion of The Devil Wears Prada were inescapable in this wonderful night. This last-minute arranged live show is certainly a perfect Lunar New Year gift for all the hardcore fans.

我相信沒有出席的觀眾可以在抗拒 The Devil Wears Prada 富侵略性和熱情的演出。這現場無疑是一個完美的農曆新年禮物禮物。
