One-hit wonder they ain’t – now three album strong, The Temper Trap is still the massively popular Australian band that they’ve been since ‘Sweet Disposition’ topped the charts some eight years ago. Indonesian-born frontman Dougy sure does add to their appeal in this part of the world too; regional/AZN pride, yo, just look at the turnout during their first two shows in Malaysia – Future Music Festival Asia and Good Vibes Festival. But if festivals lack the intimacy you crave, their third gig in Malaysia sees the band performing in the much more personal space of The Bee, Publika, as shows under the Upfront banner are wont to be. A collaborative effort with After Dark Social Club (ADSC), a subdivision of The Livescape Group, the event is also supported by U Mobile and Tiger Beer. The latter of which makes this one strictly for those 18 and above only – sorry, kiddos.
