Next 5 Music Acts to See in Malaysia 2013

Crazy! More music acts are coming this remaining 2013. Never expected this. Urbanscapes and Livescape Asia are the big winners. Attracting some big and exciting names. Thanks, guys! It feels like I'm in music-heaven right now.

The anticipation to see these music acts, combination of 'veterans' in their respective genre (Metric, EITS, Lamb of God) and new breed (BMTH, Enter Shikari) is really really high. But here are five acts I'm more interested to see: 

5. Mew (Urbanscapes Satellite Show #1, 31st Oct 2013 @ KL Live)
(Song wishlist: She Spider, Introducing Palace Player)

4. Ke$ha (26th Oct 2013 @ Stadium Negara)

(Song wishlist: C'Mon, Blah Blah Blah)

3. Franz Ferdinand (Urbanscapes Weekend, 23-24th Nov 2013 @ MAEPS Selangor)

(Song wishlist: No You Girls, Take Me Out)

2. Tegan and Sara (Urbanscapes Weekend, 23-24th Nov 2013 @ MAEPS Selangor)

(Song wishlist: Fix You Up, Love They Say)

1. The Killers (22nd Sept 2013 @ Sepang)

(Song wishlist: Spaceman, All These Things That I've Done)

Linkin Park Live in KL 2013

Went back to school days!

Faint, In the End, Numb, One Step Closer, Papercut, Points of Authority, Breaking the Habit...

Almost all of their hits an classics were there (except for Crawling. what a shame...).

I'm glad that I've finally seen them live=)

Good Vibes Festival 2013 @ Sepang Go-Kart Circuit

The Impatient Sisters

 Liyana Fizi

Kyoto Protokol


Modest Mouse


The Smashing Pumpkins

A decent festival. I love The Impatient Sisters and Ash's sets. The sisters calmed the heat down and Ash really took me back to the 90s (that 90s rock sounds)! Kyoto Protokol sounded great too. They are getting better and better since the first time I saw them live back in 2009/10

Should have more performing acts and booths though.

But good job, Future Sound Asia. Now, I can't wait for The Killers!

Cool New EP: 'Door Open Door Close'

It is Circa Survive's drummer, Steve Clifford's self-titled solo-project. Listen to the 5-track EP here.

My personal favorite tracks are 'First Born' and 'Not in His Likeness'.

Good job, Steve!

Welcome, Big Rockers!


1st half of 2013 Malaysian live music-goers got to see some of great music acts like Circa Survive, The Vaccines, 65daysofstatic, Grimes, The Temper Trap, fun., Coheed & Cambria, Backstreet Boys, Dia Frampton, The Used, Paramore & The Prodigy among others.

I thought the greatness was already over at mid-year, but I was wrong.

Came 2nd half of the year, and holy shit! We are getting chances to see bigger bands like...

Metallica, Lamb of God, The Killers, Smashing Pumpkins, Modest Mouse, Bring Me the Horizon, Enter Shikari, Mew, Linkin Park and a lot more!

BIG big names!


I thought 2012 is THE year of best gigs ever happened in Malaysia in recent memory. But this year surely owns it.

Malaysia's gig scene is flying now. We cannot complaint anymore about Malaysia lacking big concerts and at the same time saying, 'How I wish to be staying in Singapore right now'=P

MTV World Stage 2013? Not my cup of kopi. This year's line-up is the worst!
