Saturday, 25th June 2011- Transcendence, in Solidarity w/ Rumah Api @ Rumah Api, Ampang

The ol’ Gudang Noisy is dead, but from the ashes there’s a new entity, RUMAH API and this is a benefit for the DIY space, in conjunction with the Trancendence Tour by Singapore’s PAZAHORA.

In solidarity with Rumah Api, the phoenix arising from the ashes of Gudang Noisy + a part of PAZAHORA’s Transcendence Tour.

from S&A:

In solidarity; Rumah Api.

Shock&Awe! is honoured to present you Pazahora, in conjunction with their Transcendence tour at recently rejuvenated Rumah Api. You might wonder, why Rumah Api as there are lot of venues around Kuala Lumpur that might have better sound system and complete facilities, and are more strategically located. The answer is simple;

Because Rumah Api is all we have. For punks by the punks.

We at Shock&Awe! Media believe that the initiative of keeping autonomous space for DIY punk empowerment should be kept alive. Because this is our alternative avenue. And let us question ourselves where do we stand without the existence of all these alternatives? Do we conform? Do we end up like the rest? Bear in mind that all of this are choices, not mandatory.

We all know that Rumah Api (formerly known as Gudang Noisy) had experienced frequent occurrence of finance instability almost to the brink of loss. They did asked for donation, organized benefit shows, basically doing whatever necessary to save the space. They are aware of the risk of failures but they refuse to surrender cause they believe that they

rather be forgotten than remembered for giving in.

And this is from all of us who still believe;
Rumah Api, this is for you.
