Mono: For My Parents tour

Bentley Music Auditorium,

Wisma Bentley Music, Mutiara Damansara, Petaling Jaya,

Date: April 4, 8pm, RM98 (pre-sale)

Featured act: Malaysians just love Japanese post rock outfit Mono. This upcoming gig – a free-standing show – is the quartet’s fourth show here since its debut concert at Zouk KL in 2008. Each and every visit from Mono has been a well-received one. Hailing from Tokyo, this instrumental quartet, comprising Taka Goto and Yoda on guitar,Tamaki on bass, and Yasunori Takada on drums, is currently on tour to promote its new album For My Parents. The Japanese quartet has, over the course of half a dozen albums in twice as many years, followed its own muse, and in the process has become a formidable name in the post rock circles worldwide. Mono’s art rock edge and Baroque-like sophistication will combine for what looks like one of the more inventive live sets for the KL indie/post rock scene. Support act is Reset To Zilch.
