BFM’s new music academy brand, 33rpm VOX, which is an extension of the station’s popular 33rpm show, brings to you Gruff Rhys (frontman of Britpop legends Super Furry Animals and the Mercury-nominated Neon Neon) doing one of his famous one-man-show sets right here in Kuala Lumpur, as part of his tour promoting his critically acclaimed 3rd solo album “Hotel Shampoo”.

In addition to the gig, there will also be a music and songwriting clinic earlier on the same day conducted by none other than the Britpop renaissance man (as dubbed by Q Magazine) himself wherein he’ll share with you his experiences in the music business and maybe even some secrets to his songwriting mind. Opening the show will be fellow Britpop warriors Free Deserters and power pop geeks Couple.

The music clinic with Gruff Rhys is from 5pm-6pm and doors open for the gig at 8pm on Friday, 6th May 2011, at MAP @ Publika Kuala Lumpur, Level G2-01, Block A5, Solaris Dutamas, 1 Jalan Dutamas 1, Off Jalan Duta, Kuala Lumpur. Tickets are RM63 or RM83 (with music clinic – limited spots!) each.

10 FREE TICKETS TO BE WON (Courtesy of BFM): To stand a chance to win a free ticket to this show, just join The Wknd on Facebook and post a comment stating why you think Gruff is super (e.g. “Gruff is super because…”). Comments with the most ‘likes’ will be picked as winners, and this contest runs from today until Sunday, 1st May 2011. So what are you waiting for? Get clicking!
