Places to Go on the Weekend of 25 — 27 March ’16

sources: Places to Go

It’s the last weekend of March; begin it with something cultured – i.e. Fizjedar’s exhibition at Minut Init or a screening of Malaysian short films – and then continue that learned route the next day with a discourse on vinyl vis-à-vis other media at gig space Live Fact. Of course you’d minimise the partying on the first two nights of this weekend, save that energy for TREC KL’s second A Sunday Affair and Sheila On 7’s return to our shores.

HIGH + Minut Init : An Art Exhibition by Fizjedar

familiar-us-n

Fizjedar has been an independent artist since 2008; his work has been showcased at Sepang International Circuit, The Starhill Gallery, Publika, and he just recently exhibited another art collection called ‘HIGHER’ with Daphne Iking last August. For this collection entitled ‘HIGH’, Fizjedar’s creativity was piqued by aviation, tragedy, and honour, which he managed to produce 25 paintings. For a rough idea on what his art is like, click here.

Malaysian Shorts ’16

Screen Shot 2016-03-14 at 12.37.38 PM

The night starts with Gavin Yap’s 18 minute short story entitled The Incredibly Strange Tale Of The Man Who Lost His Love But Bought It Back With A Packet Of Duck Rice — it would be unfortunate if the story isn’t as funny as its title. Next is Emir Ezwan’s RM10 — and adaption of Cerpen Regina Ibrahim — which runs for 10 minutes, then, James Lee’s She, and lastly, Dick Chua’s The Happy Ending, which at 45 minutes, it has the longest duration in comparison to the other films listed for the night. Everyone is welcome to catch the screening as seating is free, but get there early to avoid not having a place to sit.

Time 8pm

GOTSOME feat. Kopigo & LZZY

Got Some

If you fancy some bass-heavy house music, look no further than Bristol DJ duo GotSome. Taking a listen to their latest EP Zoo Music, it’s no wonder they’ve been a success since partnering up in 2014. They’re also a fixture on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show, so don’t expect any flimsy dance music à la what you’d hear from the big clubs from them. Supporting the London lads that night are Kopigo and LZZY.

Date Friday 25 March ’16
Time 10.30pm
Venue COMO, TREC
Cover RM30 (Before 12am, it’s inclusive of a drink.)

What’s Up with Vinyl? A Mini Talk

Mohd Radzi

Whichever medium you choose to listen to music is entirely up to personal preference. Some people simply enjoy the music, but others take a deeper consideration as to how their enjoyment is affected by the medium and the audio quality that’s being produced.  We here at JUICE have even written a number of pieces on vinyl and cassettes. If you would like to hear the opinions of people whose work surrounds music – namely Teenage Head Records’ Mohd Radzi, Killeur Calculateur’s drummer and BFM producer/announcer Ali Johan, folk rocker and lecturer Azmyl Yunor, and journalist/DJ of Twilight Actiongirl fame Daryl Goh – you can sit in or participate in the discussion. The mini-talk will be moderated by Phang Kuan Hoong and the afterparty’s music selection will be handled by DJ Oddjob.

Music collective Beatmilitia will gather some of the more recognisable names in the Valley’s dance music scene for its second episode of the Bunker series. To the uninitiated, Bunker is an invite only event where their curated list of DJs are expected to deliver an intimate live and recorded sets – to quote them, it’s the sort of chin-stroking club night where “you can immerse yourself in intellectual and innovating sounds of dance music.” This round sees Joey G, Irama, A-MarQ, Aisha Wilkinson, and Adib.

DR.Inc Food Market #4

12764456_966797983367389_7692936693085219087_o

Spend the last Sunday of March by treating yourself to “something dangerous” from Fierce and Little Rara’s Thai boat noodles (just a couple among other vendors offered!). However, if hot food on a potentially blazing Sunday afternoon doesn’t sound too appetising, the market will also be selling some truffles, cakes, and alcoholic ice cream! Another thing to note is that this edition of DR.Inc’s Food Market will be plastic-free, so food will be served on plates or banana leaves. If you bring your own container, you’ll get RM1 off your order. Don’t miss out.

Date Sunday 27 March ’16
Time 11am
Venue DR.Inc, Bangsar

Sheila On 7 Live in Malaysia

The band that arguably kickstarted the invasion of Indo-rock in Malaysia – who hasn’t gotten heartache while ‘Sephia’ plays in the background? – is coming to town in conjunction with the 20th anniversary of their formation. With an 11-album strong discography that has seen three of them selling well over one million units consecutively, one could expect KWC Mall to be brimming with SheilaGanks this Sunday night.

Venue StarXpo Hall @ KWC Fashion City Mall
Cover RM75 (Adam Zone) / RM110 (Eros Zone) / RM150 (Rock Zone) *purchase tickets via iLasso
