Part of the Digi Music Live series.
SevenCollar T-shirt launched their latest album at Cloth & Clef on the 11th of November 2009. Hmm, the event only started at 10.40pm despite stating 9pm on the flyers. Bad bad. Forty Winks was the first band to play, but everyone was sitting down, even after being asked to stand up and dance.
Prana, a band which was establish a long time ago made an appearance that night, intact with all the original band members. Their friends and supporters were evident in the crowd. They did play quite a lot of their early material, which included “The Bird Song“, one of my favorites.

Notes: Disagree played just as the rain stopped, allowing me to walk around the stage and snap photos.
Notes: Yuna is fun and easy to shoot as she doesn’t move around so much. Attention has to be taken so that you capture her while her eyes are open or is looking outward towards the crowd.
Notes: The lighting was interesting when Faizal Tahir was performing.
Notes: It started to pour heavier while Estranged was playing, allowing me to only take photos from the right side of the stage. Couldn’t get a close up of Din or walk far enough to zoom over the stage to photograph Azwin.
Notes: Pijie has an interesting t-shirt! Bittersweet is one really interesting band as they rarely move around the stage while performing. Easy to snap, but you won’t get many action or dynamic pictures. Pijie on the other hand, has really interesting poses and facial expressions (which DOES NOT suit the music the band plays at all! Hah!).
Notes: The band members move around the stage every now and then allowing more action shots. The bassist tend to get close to the edge of the stage, allowing more wide angle shots. Interesting band to shoot.
I like to get 2 or more band members in one shot while using my 70-200 lens.
This year’s Flyniversary started well early in the evening, at about 4pm with Couple as the opening act. I only managed to get to the venue at about 7.30pm due to the downpour which lasted from 5pm till 8.30pm. Anyways, even with the heavy rain, the crowd were still standing in front of the stage, entertained by performers like Shila (OIAM), James Baum and also One Buck Short.
VIP ticket holders got to have dinner and drinks at the special VIP tent while waiting for the second part of the event to start at 8pm, with Caprice being the first performer on stage. He brought along Annatasha for the first song, Thinking Of You. For more pictures, do check out http://www.lifeinkl.com/2009/11/21/4th-flyniversary-pictures/

Hujan‘s second album, Mencari Konklusi can be considered as a ‘real’ album, considering their first album was actually a compilation of both their earlier singles plus a few additional songs. Do note the new band logo as well.
Hujan has really came a long way since their first green colored single which featured their signature hit songs such as Pagi Yang Gelap, Kuala Lumpur and Ahmoi Chantek which are now on their ‘must-play’ songs on their live sets.
Fast forward 2 years, when they won the award for ‘Lagu Rock Terbaik‘ at the Anugerah Industri Musik ke-16. Mencari Konklusi was released in September 2009 and is more of a mini album, rather than a ‘full length LP’. It only has 7 songs, which are
Centuries ago, the Mayans left us their calendar, with a clear end date and all that it implies. Since then, astrologists have discovered it, numerologists have found patterns that predict it, geologists say the earth is overdue for it, and even government scientists cannot deny the cataclysm of epic proportions that awaits the earth in 2012. A prophecy that began with the Mayans has now been well chronicled, discussed, taken apart and examined. By 2012, we’ll know – we were warned.

DigiMusic Live was postponed due to Tyson (the vocalist) having an accident but The All-American Rejects did come back to perform after Tyson recovered and they were well rewarded for it.
The event was supposed to be held at Central Park Avenue, 1 Utama but the postponement caused the event to be relocated to the car park of the Bukit Jalil stadium instead. Both venues were good locations for this event but I reckon the Bukit Jalil had the upper hand of being just next to the LRT station (which had extended its operating hours to 12:30am that night).
Approximately 10,000 fans packed the venue that night, some coming even as early as 12 in the afternoon to book the front row location. There was a long snaking line from the entrance of the fenced up crowd area at about 6pm. If you were hungry, you could get some food from the stalls outside, or even inside, as there was a Pizza Hut stall inside.
