Sausagefest, a charity event brought together tonight at The Bee, in Jaya One PJ is a collaboration by the local band 'Once Upon A Time There Was A Sausage Name Bob' with Start Society where sausages are served for a good cause. (Start Society brings together children from various orphanages and teach them the arts -music, drama, speech, writing, design, others for the betterment of these children)
I got the invitation and showed up as planned last night in support of Sausagefest. I love sausages, and having sausages while doing my part for charity was a pretty good deal for me. Local bands spiced up the night with acoustics and music while we had our sausages. A few cool bloggers showed up as well, and together we just chilled with the music at The Bee.

For a minimum donation of RM5 to Start Society, we would be getting a stick of sausage, while an RM10 donation would get us 2 sticks with a chance to win the lucky draw. Having my sausages, while listening to the bands play and in the company of friends, nothing beats that happy feeling. The sausages themselves weren't too bad, probably a bit too burnt on the sides, but delicious all the same.

We had local bands such as Leo Lee, Our Sunsets, Ariff AB, Weakenders, The Wishing, Locust Day Dream, Heart A-Tack, Car Crash Hearts, and Bob The Sausage going up the stage to perform. I personally don't know much about our local indie music scene, but it was nice to listen to some new and fresh music from these cool bands.

Overall it was a pretty good night, The Bee was a really nice place to hang out and an awesome place to have an event such as this. I found myself having trouble to move around though, probably because of the big crowd that turned up last night.
Bear in mind, this is only the first part of Sausagefest, with the second part to be held on the 24th November at The Laundry Bar, The Curve. Don't forget to mark down your calendars because you wouldn't want to miss the Sausagefest there!
