Indie PG - Don't miss the last night!!

I attended the first night of Penang's first ever 'Indie PG' at Penang Pac last night and I have to say was blown away by the bands, their music and the musical ability.  Each of the 8 acts that performed between 6:30 pm and 11:00 pm had their own very unique style and sound and it was all their own music.  These musicians, from all over Malaysia, are really very talented and there was a great turn out at the event to show support for the acts, and in Malaysia young and up-coming musicians very much need our support.

Pictured above, one of my favourite bands on the night, 'Kiss Kill Mary' ramp up with their opening number.  KKM delivered a fantastic performance and, as the MC rightly said, the only complaint was that they stopped playing too soon.  This is the type of band I could listen to and watch all night.

Other favourites of the night for me were the 'Electric Minz Project', 'Double Click', 'Beat in the Street', 'Soundaholic' and 'Sedsuna' and I will certainly be on the lookout for future performances from these bands.  Although I had my favourites, all of the acts were superb and for the price of the ticket covering two days (just RM 30) it was a great night of entertainment.

If you missed IndiePG last night there is still a chance to see more great acts tonight (Sunday 30th March) as IndiePG enters its second day and last day. Workshops (which are also free) start from around 2pm with the live performances again from about 6:30pm so, come along to Penang Pac for a great night's entertainment and to show support for these talented musicians.
