Jamming vibes


Singer-songwriter Liyana Fizi sings out strong in Alexis tonight.

FOOTBALL fans around the world are breathing sighs of relief thanks to the ongoing Copa America and Euro 2016, which kicked off yesterday, providing some nice action on the pitch in the midst of the usual summer break for most leagues.

While time differences make screening the Copa matches live a bit of a problem, that is not the case with the Euro, and several outlets in the Klang Valley are offering live screenings. Of course, this also means more music as the bands come out to entertain in between the earlier matches.
