Housed in the Pentas 1 of Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPAC), Sentul East for approximately 650 pax total per show, the will show only cater to a very small crowd so that the children can see Hi-5 in the highest intimacy ever! Not only that, there will also be the first ever Mosh Pit tickets are on sale. The Mosh Pit is right in front of the stage, a la Hi-5 on TV!

Yuna officially launched her debut album titled Decorate recently at the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Center (KLPAC for short) which was located at Sentul. It was a 2 day affair and was held on the 23rd and 24th of July, with the performances starting at 9pm on both days.

Upon arriving at the car park I could sense that Pentas 1 will be completely filled up as I had to park on the road shoulder. I wasn’t sure whether it was filled to the brim on the first day, but boy it was nearly filled up on the second day.

Yuna started her set without any delays whatsoever at 9pm sharp with Someone Out Of Town. The stage setup was simple. Yes, simple it was, but it was filled up with musicians! There were 2 guitarists, a bassist, a backup vocalist, keyboardist, percussionist, drummer and of course Yuna herself taking center stage behind the monitors. There was space on the left side for 3 additional string players for later in the set.

It was a really hot day but it didn’t stop people from gathering around the Lawn Stage. The concert and music areas were not free, you needed to buy tickets to access them though. The lawn stage was where most of the live music took part, featuring acts such as An Honest Mistake and Kyoto Protocol but the charmers for noon were the ladies, Najwa, Yuna, and Liyana Fizi!

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.

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

The Battle Protocol is SevenCollar T-shirt’s second (hmm, well, I think it’s their second anyway) concert at a performing arts theater/hall. It was held on the 21st and 22nd of May 2010 at the KL Performing Arts Center (KLPAC) at Sentul. Their first one was held way back in 2007 at The Actor’s Studio.

Veterans of the local music scene, SevenCollar T-Shirt (will be referred to SCTS from now onwards) has just recently released their 3rd album, which is titled The Great Battle and this event is partly to promote the album (hence the similarities in the naming theme). The Great Battle has the trademark SCTS unique sounding guitar lines, haunting ambience, and Duan’s draggish vocals.
