AUGUST 22: Thursday

Billie Blue & The Nowhere Men at NBT

Inspired by bands like Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin and Jefferson Airplane, Billie Blue & The Nowhere Man is an alternative rock outfit with a vintage sound echoing the sensibilities of folk rock and acid rock of the 60s and 70s. The band delivers driving rhythms, colourful melodic lines, and assured yet sensitive vocals with distinctive vibrato. In combination with dynamic guitar riffs and steadily nuanced bass and drums, Billie Blue & The Nowhere Man’s musical approach is decidedly introspective, bohemian and hard to ignore.

KL Journal Open Mic #103 ft Azlan Ramli

Born and raised on a healthy diet of 80s new wave, Brit-metal and 90s angst, Azlan's music transcends genres, with influences as diverse as The Police, Jimi Hendrix, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Kate Bush and a dash of The Beatles. First making waves in the 90s with his band Two Hats, in which Azlan was the primary singer and songwriter, their sole Malay album Di Mana Suara Ku achieved critical success and was commonly regarded as ahead of its time. After the disintegration of that band, Azlan picked up bass duties for Spunky Funggy, and was one of the three driving forces (the other two being Wolf and Chong) that propelled the band from unknown misfits to the darling of the Malaysian late-90s underground and indie scenes - culminating in the band's seminal album Smile For The Revolution. Azlan can be seen and heard at various open mic and singer-songwriter events in Malaysia. He is also the bass player and vocalist for his new band Roses4Juliet. Follow him: https://www.instagram.com/azlanbramli/

With Open mics from Juliana Heng, Juan, Nana Lee, Kazuhira, J and Amr Mohsen. To sign up for the open mic, email us@openmicmalaysia.org
