From the last vestiges of the colonial empire to the Brexit stricken motherland, one's from the UK, the other's from India - what could go wrong? Two nights with two crazy headliners from opposite ends of the earth - at one venue: The Crackhouse Comedy Club, KL.

His solo shows have toured the world, from the Edinburgh Fringe to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival - Nik's confident, affable, and energetic style of comedy is quick to win an audience over. Founder of the critically acclaimed hit show 'Shaggers' where comedians from all walks of life are encouraged to talk about their sexuality - Nik's comedy ranges from human nature to an extensive knowledge of wildlife, and from superheroes to current affairs.

JANUARY 27: Getier at Live Fact

German electronic trio GETIER play the last concert of their mini Malaysian Tour at Live Fact. There is animalistic pureness in GETIER. Raw and melancholic electronic sounds open a cold and unreachable window to the world of their music. Yet Maika’s vocals build a bridge between this strange mash and the warmth of the human soundscape. It all melts together in form of musical expression; an animal shaped, formed from three different musical natures, creating one being, one singing creature.

 

 

LIVE FACT: No. 6-2 & M, Jalan PJU 5/21, The Strand Kota Damansara, PJ. Admission: RM30. Call 012-377 8558 / RSVP e-mail livefactkl@gmail.com


JANUARY 27 & 29:  Ivory Series Italian Baroque at NBT

Three centuries ago an Italian Baroque composer named Domenico Scarlatti churned out an enormous number of keyboard sonatas. Each of Scarlatti’s 555 keyboard sonatas has its own personality and the Spanish guitar was what influenced his compositions. Born in the same year as Scarlatti was Johann Sebastian Bach, a German composer known for composing the Italian Concerto, which consists of 3 movements: Allegro. Andante. Aside from the concerto, he was also famous for his Chaconne for violin solo from the Partita No. 2 in D minor. It was transcribed for piano in 1893 by Ferruccio Busoni, adding both orchestral quality and stereophonic perception.

 

 

Mei Lin has performed in a piano masterclass with world-renowned pianist-teachers such as Leon Fleisher, Byron Janis, Nina Svetlanova and the late Shura Cherkassky. A former student of Michael Ruiz at the American Conservatory of Music in Chicago, Mei Lin Hii is a classical pianist that holds a Master of Music Degree and Professional Studies Diploma from the Manhattan School of Music in New York.
