Paramore Live in Kuala Lumpur (2010)

paramoreKL10_01

Almost two months ago, exactly 19 Oct 2010;  American pop punk band finally meet face to face with their Malaysian fans. It took them about 6 years to finally have a concert here in Malaysia. and with the help of Tune Talk, Fatboys Records and other organizer, they finally here and with their newest album titled Brand New Eyes. The concert open by local masked punk rock band, Y2k. I haven’t heard them for years, tiba-tiba muncul dan mengecewakan lots and lots of local Paramore-oriented band to open the stage that night. 9pm, when it all begins. Paramore open their first concert in Malaysia with Ignorance (2nd track from Brand New Eyes) behind a curtain. It goes full blast after the curtain fall off and with strong 8000 crowd, Bukit Jalil Stadium had the most loudest night (of the entire week?).

The photo pit just as crowded as the Rockzone. And with all the fact that i had read about how to photograph this band were all true facts. Photographing the energetic Hayley was the most fun of the night. And to be able to witness and photograph the famous Hayley hair whip is another thing. Wicked night! haha. Paramore perform 8 first songs in electric set before they performed 4 song in an acoustic set. The first electric set was electrifying satisfying Malaysian fans with songs like Feeling Sorry, That’s What You Get, For A Pessimist, I’m Pretty Optimistic, Emergency, Playing God, Careful, and Decode.

Acoustic set started on a white couch (that they brought up from backstage) with Never Let This Go, When It Rains, Where The Lines Overlap, and ended with Misguided Ghosts with a power cut (was it?) leaving the crowd singing a long to the song. Macam koir pun ada. (: Pressure, build up the 2nd electric set and i guess everyone had already enjoying the night with a louder sing along. Next, the band played Looking Up with a lighter up in the moment and ended with The Only Exception before off the stage of almost 2 hours set.

Russian Circles Live in Kuala Lumpur (2010)

24 September 2010, would be the first time Malaysian fans to be able to witness this 3 piece Chicago band. They are Russian Circles (RC), known to have energetic live shows and love to play in a very dimmed lighting conditions. They came to Malaysia with their newest album entitled ‘Geneva’ that has been released on 20 October last year. Boleh juga kalau nak kata ini adalah South East Asia Tour untuk RC.  The gig reportedly started at 8.30pm at KLPAC (Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Center) which I myself only manage to catch them at 9pm thanks to the traffic of Kuala Lumpur.

After Mono, this gig would be the next best gig I have attend this year. Intimate yet full of energy. The comfy seats at Pentas 1 would never distract the gig head to just sit on their seats comfortably. I saw people banging on their comfy seat instead. It is an added rarest moment to this event. The possible setlist of that night would be Harper Lewis, Malko, Hexed, Carpe, Young Blood, Philos, Death Rides a Horse, Geneva with an encore of Station. With the help of good sound system and acoustic of Pentas 1, i believe everyone have a wicked night to be told, to everyone who missed it.

22 May 2010 marked a new milestone to this band in their many years in Malaysia local music scene. They are Seven Collar T-Shirt. Kuala Lumpur Performing Art Center (KLPAC) had turn into a ‘war zone’ for ‘The Battle Protocol’.

The entire battle was divided into 4 scenes, giving a different feel, tempo and mood on each scene. The battle started with TET offensive featuring the percussion unit. The loud beat from the big drum do gives the energy needed to start the battle. While in scene 2, they were support by ambiance players. Scene 2 was eclectic with Fragile, Fibres, Drones, War is over and Chemicals. After 10minutes interval, scene 3 starts with summary and Yuna comes out to do duet with Duan on few songs. The last scene started with a solo drum session by Aidil and finish with a big bang of the song titled Lights.

Typecast: Live in Malaysia

concert — admin on May 23, 2010 at 8:10 am

typecast10_01

Typecast was brought by Gegey Music whom managed to brought in few international acts last year. I believe Typecast is a big name back in Phillipines. They opened for Saosin Live in Manila early this year and had been to Singapore several times. With this first appearance in Malaysia, it was a good opportunity for Typecast to promote their new coming album, How Your Influence Betrays You, to Malaysian crowd. Hopefully this will not their last visit to Malaysia.

The events was supported by few of biggest local bands and a band from Singapore. The event opened by This Sunday, Massacre Conspiracy, The Padangs, Incarnation, A Vacant Affair and Love Me Butch.

After the stage had been rock out by six band, Typecast took the stage. and  with a substituted bassist. I am familiar with only few songs from their last album although i’ve been listening to them for last two years. Maybe i’ve been listening to their only famous set list. Pity me. Haha. Despite the low crowd that night, they still rocking out the venue, Dragonfly Club. They end the show with a collaboration with Matt from A Vacant Affair. No encore that night but it was an awesome introductory for the band in Malaysia. The venue was good, the band was awesome, but the crowd, not the best i think.

After 2 years of their first visit to Malaysia, Mono had once again decided to meet their Malaysian fans in 2010. They came with their 5th studio album ‘Hymn To The Immortal Wind’ that had received great reviews all over the world. After touring all over the world promoting their newest album and celebrating their 10th anniversary, Mono are once again welcome by Malaysian post-rock fan (yang sudah bertambah) as they showed up in KLPAC dated 30 Jan 2010.

With almost a full house in Pentas 2, Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Center (KLPAC), the majestic events kick off with local post-rock band, Deepset. Deepset open with an outstanding performance. I am pretty sure they have collect more newer fans at this show. Im one of them :)

As Mono took the stage, the started their set by playing ‘Ashes In The Snow’. For me, it does give a welcoming mood the whole set that last about 2 hours.  After a few songs, a string quartet came out and give a deeper sound the awesome night. Nice! Towards the end, Mono were roaring with their sound and the crowd was with them. They ended with a climax ‘Everlasting Light’. No encore but it was a tastiest night. It did gave me chills for a week i guess. Wicked!
