GBOB 2010 Press Party- It's Malaysia, the host for GBOB Finale.

GBOB, Global Battle of the Bands is not a new thing to Malaysian as we've been having the GBOB contest in Malaysia since 2007. However, this time there will be something BIGGER! The World Global Battle of the Bands Final is confirmed to be held in Malaysia and Hell Yeah, it's the first time ever, Malaysia is the HOST!!!

There will be 16 finalist from all over the world to compete among each other in the final! The CHOSEN ONE aka winner of the finale will took away USD 100,000 band development package ($$$$, Ka-Ching!!) that includes a chance of having one week in a top UK recording studio with a producer and a ten-date tour of major UK cities! Of course, they will also have USD 10,000 cash to spend!!

Glad to be invited to the GBOB press party which happened in the celebrity hall of music, thanks to G+ and GBOB!!! Shoutout: I'm freakin love BANDS yo!!!! And the venue is a damn nice place to enjoy a music performance or just simply hang out there (wandering around~)!

The fireball finally HIT Malaysia!!! Scream! Band lovers out there!!!

Get a really nice seat, just in front of the stage!!! Yea~Yea~

Nice surrouding!!! I would use the word, comfortable!

Chandelier, that's Simon Yam's potrait! He's been here for a Canon's event too~a Macho guy(Woops)!

The bar!!! Rum please!

Light effect...!!!

Interior design....superb!

Manage to get the chance to enjoy some of the local act's music and that is really ashamed of myself because as a big Rock music and band lover, I never really been to a rock band live act event....Boooooo!!! Well, I'm given the chance anyway at the GBOB press party and I almost deaf...just kidding! Feel like stood up and did some headbanging while the band is playing!!
Hyper act did the opening act for the press party! Personally I like the band's music a lot although all the while when it comes to local act, I would prefer Faizal Tahir or Bunkface, or our beloved Datuk Siti Nurhaliza! They play really well, hmm...well the guitarist could have been play better, so sorry....just love to compare any guitarist with my favourite guitarist Richie Sambora, He's a Guitar GOD....I mean Sexay Guitar God (I can't control myself.....Ehem!)!!!!! I just noticed that the vocal of Hyper Act is Roney from OIAM! Cool! Seriously, you guys need to check out Hyper Act's "Kutiba Lagi". That song is freakin awesome!

They are having some rehearsal before the partay start!!!
