July 2010


It has been 1 month since Urbanscapes, sorry for the delay, but yeah Urbanscapes 2010 was held on the 27th of June 2010 at the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Center (KLPAC for short), Sentul. Last year’s Urbanscapes was also held at the same venue.

One interesting event which happened this year was the ‘Project Angkat Rumah‘ event, where approximately 250 people carried a small wooden house (a real small one, no rooms) from Sekolah Kebangsaan Sentul Utama at Jalan Ipoh to KLPAC.

There was obstacles along the way such as overhead signs and also power cables which prevented the house from continuing its journey. Luckily they managed to find a detour which successfully brought the house to the entrance of KLPAC where the almighty guard house was awaiting.


Excerpt from Streething (http://www.streething.com/archives/25678):

Apart from showcasing upcoming G-Shock collections and performances from local artists Arabyrd and Joe Flizzow, the event highlights will include the unveiling of local collaboration watches as well as a special appearance by Mr. Kikuo Ibe – founder of the G-Shock division.

Yuna the accidental singer-songwriter from Subang Jaya, Selangor, has come a long way and is now back with a full-length album. After releasing her self-titled EP in 2008, Yuna introduces ‘Decorate‘ a compilation of some of her favourite songs she wrote over the years, enabling her to share something more than what people knew of her from ‘Dan Sebenarnya‘.

Supported by her band, fans are invited to join her in this ‘story-telling’ session where she will be showcasing some of her earliest songs as well as new materials that she has brought back from an intensive songwriting period in L.A.

Watch Yuna as she changes her colours, as all good chameleons do, from danceable materials to darker ones and be dazzled by her performance.

Date: 23 – 24 July 2010
Time: 8.30pm
Venue: Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Center, Sentul Park
Tickets: RM60 / RM80 with album

It was a relaxing and entertaining 24th of June night, as Tokyo Blue and The Rhapsody played a host of jazz, nu-jazz, and lounge tunes.

Tokyo Blue, if you haven’t already heard of them or watched them perform, is an all-instrument band, with Hiro on the bass, Josh on the drums and Ywenna on the keyboards. Ywenna wasn’t there that night though.

Tokyo Blue started out with Circle, and then going into Before Dawn and a couple of  their originals before ending their set with 3 Miles. They also threw in Jaco PastoriusThe Chicken into their set!

After Tokyo Blue, it was time for Rhapsody, also a jazzy band, but this time with vocals which was done by Nicole. The Rhapsody’s set was really easy going, flowing from one song into another, with jokes thrown in by bassist-cum-comedian, Kevin.

They played a few covers including Indie Arie‘s I’m Not My Hair, Colin Bailey Rae‘s Munich and then continued on with some originals, the interesting one being ‘You Look Better When You Are Naked‘. The crowd didn’t let them go when they ended their set that night and demanded for more! Good on ya! As a response, Rhapsody adhoc-ly decided to play Maroon 5‘s Sunday Morning for the encore.
