Some info on the bands for that night:
Radja
An Indonesian rock band formed in Jakarta on 17 March 2001. The band's name is the Indonesian word for "king". The band's debut album ‘Lepas Masa Lalu’ in 2001 was not very popular, while their next album ‘Manusia Biasa’ ("Ordinary Man"), released in 2003, sold only 60,000 copies. Released in 2004, Their third album ‘Langkah Baru’ ("New Step"), however was a huge success. The album sold over 1.2million copies worldwide, going platinum in Indonesia.
Since then, Radja has achieved great success in the rock scene, performing at top concerts and building a large fan base around the region.

Hujan
Hujan has come a long way since they began as an independent band performing at underground gigs around Malaysia in 2005. In 2008, Hujan burst into the mainstream music industry with their popular singles, "Pagi Yang Gelap" and "Bila Aku Sudah Tiada", which won them two AIM Awards for Best Rock Song and Best Rock Album.

They have a following of 100,000 die-hard supporters who are affectionately called Raingers who follows them on MySpace and Youtube. Hujan has also toured the United Kingdom thanks to the demands by Malaysian students who were studying there. For the record, Hujan is the only band in Malaysia to have released 8 popular singles in a year! More than 100, 000 fans followed them over at MySpace, while their recorded performances uploaded on YouTube have received more than 2 million viewers…and counting.

Azan & the Typewriter
Azlan & The Typewriter (ATT) is a modern rock soloist led by Azlan, the former lead vocalist of rock group Meet Uncle Hussain. The name Azlan & The Typewriter is derived from a combination of human touch with basic traditional tools of self expression, with The Typewriter being a metaphor for his soul, his mind and his words.

Modern alternative indie rock is the genre. Utilising a range of unique musical arrangements and a leftfield approach to Malay rock music, Azlan brings a more personal touch to his colourful melodies. Expressing the broad perspectives of Azlan’s journey of life in the search of oneself, his deep poetic lyrics fuse this project together with his sincerest feelings about existence.
