17th December 2016: Rock The World 16, at Car Park B, Bukit Jalil National Stadium.
A new structure, a big tent to house the food trucks and tired rockers!
Up on the big Main Stage…
…was Republic Of Brickfields!
You’ll all know it from Aru.
Slyde emcees for the Acoustic Stage.
…out of a box…
…from the likes of…
Most shots with the Sony Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* 135mm F1.8 ZA.
David who I’d not seen on guitar for a long time.
It was good ol’ singalong time.
Kids enjoying themselves.
Rest and relax. This tent was the best idea ever, as it usually rains at Rock The World and everyone runs to the hills. Well no, not really.
Joined by a full band!
Eu Gene on ukulele bass!
I took a break and had myself one of these Pau Mushroom Viral Putrajaya. Filled with a chicken-mushroom paste, it was actually really, really delicious. Don’t be fooled by its hipster food look, it’s really awesome!
Color mosh time!
Cool Tarik T-shirt!
Jimmy with Jack watching behind.
Look ma I can reach behind my back to hold my bass…
Jack and his scalloped Telecaster.
High energy rock and roll!
They were throwing out free shoes. Box included.
Emcee Big for the Main Stage!
Back at the acoustic stage…
…which you might be able to discern from the different background.
No restraint in rocking on stage!
Wei bro lama tak jumpa!
Love it when the band visits the lonely drummer at the back.
They had quite an ardent fanbase!
The vocalist jumps in.
I like photographing them when they kneel down.
I’ve never noticed this before.
What a sofa was doing there, I don’t know.
Big, big band.
Some familiar faces.
Plague Of Happiness, another big band.
Retro surf pop yeh yeh!
More rock and roll.
They have too much fun on stage.
Wearing Beatles influences on their sleeves and straps.
Good ol’ skins.
Portaloo queue. This was hilarious! One guy appeared to be impatient and wanted to cut queue, but his friend stopped him. He eventually broke free and instead of going to the toilet, he entered an opening to the bushes behind where a few guys were peeing in the bushes. He shouted, “JAKIM! Apa buat di sini?” A bunch of us laughed loudly!
I love their Opeth-like introduction.
It then goes into some super heavy death metal.
Five strings for more bass.
They have the instruments to suit their retro sound.
Old Automatic Garbage.
I like this backlight.
Good ol’ Radhi-O.
