Thursday, 19th April 2007: NOFX in KL
A lot of kids have been asking us on the much rumoured NOFX show in KL this month. Well, we’ve just found out that it’s taking place next week, organised by FYI Entertainment, but the attendance is “by invitation” only, and you can get yourselves “invited” by contacting the FYI agents. Pre-sale tickets are going for RM65 each, and at the door: RM75.

Note: Ricecooker and some friends were talking to NOFX representatives to do the show here about a month ago (we got to know about the tour pretty late) but negotiations broke down when we realised it would need quite a lot of initial outlay (money) to secure the venue, sound equipment, permits and related.
In short, we quickly realised that NOFX is way out of our little DIY punk league! They have sold over 6 millions records worldwide! Duhh!
That said, we’re glad that someone managed to snag the date for KL! It’s worth noting that NOFX is paying for their own plane fare and accommodation: so, whatever people say, there’s still a bit of that punk rock spirit left in there!
FYI Entertainment is also taking quite a risk with their investments and the brave “invite-only” strategy; so those who are so inclined on witnessing NOFX in flesh should go and support the show.
