IndiPG: The first Independent Musician event in Penang

Penang will soon play host to what I am sure will be an excellent two day extravaganza at the end of this month (March), Penang's first ever independent musician event, featuring musicians from several states and which focusses entirely on their own music. No 'cover' versions here!!

The event is being held in conjunction with (and at) Penang PAC (Straits Quay), and my good friend, and excellent guitarist, Kelvyn Yeang has been heavily involved with the organisation.  In addition to live performances from the artists there will be a series of workshops aimed at promoting independent music and, in particular, improving your skills as an artist.

Just one of the workshops to be held is 'When Dream & Day Unite!'

Conducted by Darren Teh from 'An Honest Mistake', Darren will be giving some insights on the challenges faced by a musician or a band and how to be triumphant over them.  This workshop is highly recommended to newbies to the music industry and even to parents with children who are keen on music as profession. And of course, once you have your ticket(s), all of these workshops are free!

Held on both Friday 29 and Saturday 30 March, tickets are priced at just RM35 for adults and RM25 for students and are valid for both days! The Facebook Page for the event can be found here and this will be updated as time goes on with more specific detail about the event.
