Everyone knows we love our wonderful community here at Yoodo. In fact, we love them so much, we decided to throw them their own indie concert! Our very first Yoodo Presents concert on 22 July 2019 was held at Battle Arena, Jaya Shopping Centre, in conjunction with our second Community Day. We treated local fans to an unforgettable show of Malaysia’s best indie talents. Which we’re about to describe, in case you missed it.
Hosted by the one and only Jinnyboy, Youtuber and video dude extraordinaire, the show began with the dreamy, soulful tunes of Battle Bloom. This four-strong indie pop band have gone from strength to strength since their debut, and they brought their A-game to the stage.
Their rocking set were followed by rapper A.Ron, who you might have seen recently on Rojak Daily’s Showdown: Fastest Rapper. This hip-hopping hot man of the hour kept the crowd heated up with rapid-fire beats and freestyling. A.Ron was also joined on stage by beatboxer Ezra C. Soon, who showed off some very slick skills indeed.
Local alt-rockers Modescape took the stage next with their moody, powerful hits, going from tender to thunderous and back again. They capped off their set with Hilang, the theme from local 2016 flick Aliff Dalam 7 Dimensi.
Next up with a chiller vibe was R&B songstress Nadhira, who charmed the crowd with her catchiest tunes, including her 2018 single Hold Me Down.
She was followed by An Honest Mistake, who had us all headbanging with pop punk tunes as loud, wild and energetic as frontman Darren’s radioactive green hair (we want to know who colours it – hey Darren, hit us up? ?).
Winding up the night was the act everyone had been waiting for: indie scene kings SevenCollar T-Shirt, who didn’t disappoint with an explosive, uplifting set that made a fitting end to a great day out.
We all had great fun meeting our fans and friends and giving out prizes like earphones and Yoodo credit for lucky Yoodo users. Viewers at home got to play along with quizzes on Facebook Live too, so it pays to get your stream on. 😉
Thanks for coming out to Yoodo Presents: Community Day, everyone! We’ll see you again very soon with more fun, friends and fantastic acts in the spotlight.
