AFTER PARTY: Zee Avi Live in KL @ KL Live (20/3/2010)

The Story Begins...

Malaysia's sweet little songbird whom signed under Brushfire Records (owned by Jack Johnson), Zee Avi has finally made her homecoming concert at KL Live recently and delivered a SUPER overwhelming performance to her fans. The highly anticipated concert was sold out within two days to 2,000 adoring fans. That is unbelievable for a mini-concert in Malaysia!

Me and my buddies reached there around 7.30pm and our jaw was dropped looking at the long queue until i-don't-know-how-many-kilometers but it was very smooth. We didn't have to wait too long to get into the hall. Good job to the securities on this.

As we entered the hall, we find the whole place was at the right atmosphere. I mean, we had Moving Units, Showtek and Placebo at KL Live and finally the venue toned down in bringing the right ambiance to complement Zee Avi's music.

The night was hosted by Aaron Mokhtar (Biggest Loser Asia 2nd runner-up) and he did a great job in hyping up the mood with his jokes and a short competition. 'Grats to the couple who won themselves a trip to Bali.

As soon as Zee Avi went on stage, her fans began to scream and at one point, you can hear "I love you, Zee Avi" and "Awak ni comel la!" from the sea of crowd. Zee played an hour set including her hits "Bitter Heart", "Kantoi" and kicked it off with "Poppy". Aside from playing her own stuffs, Zee also performed her own rendition of her favorites such as Interpol's "Slow Hands" and Yeah Yeah Yeahs' "Date with the Night".

Zee ended her set with her own version of Morrissey's "First of the Gang to Die" and left the crowd wanting for more. It was obvious that her show was supposed to end at the time and Aaron (the host) was trying to pacify the screaming fans. No doubt, one hour is not enough. After waiting a while, Zee came out, tuned her guitar and did one last song - "Monte" (If I'm not mistaken, that song was featured in Private Practice season 2). The last song left us with an unforgettable music experience. In other word, the night was perfect.

Malaysians are proud of you, Zee!
