It’s that time of the year – the time for another Rockawayfest Showcase.
Taking cue from positive responses of the first two showcases (read: Dashboard Confessional’s Chris Carrabba and Sum 41) the good people of Livescape Asia presents another tasteful event for the second half of the year, the third installment of the Rockawayfest Showcase series which will be featuring “Boys Like Girls” and “Motion City Soundtrack” live in Kuala Lumpur!
We know that you’re thinking. “What? Boys Like Girls are back from complete silence?”
After taking a break to catch their breaths from a whirlwind five years of touring, the Boys Like Girls boys regrouped in November 2011 to begin recording their forthcoming album. The album, named “Crazy World” is slated for a late summer/early fall release this year. So we guess their lucky Malaysian fans will be able to see them perform new material live long before their album is out.
Joining them in the showcase is pop-punk band, Motion City Soundtrack. The band was formed back in 1999 with a temporary line-up of members until 2002. Now, with the line-up firmly in place, they took to touring through Europe and Japan alongside Blink 182. Blink’s bassist, Mark Hoppus, took a liking to the band and agreed to produce their album, “Commit This to Memory”. Insert fangirl squeal here!
Also, this Rockawayfest Showcase will be happening live on the 12th July 2012 (Thursday) at Neverland, Kuala Lumpur, right before Puasa!

As a matter of fact, Rahul Kukreja (Director of LIVE Events for Livescape) said, “With the fasting month just around the corner, we thought it would be great to hose another Rockawayfest Showcase. This showcase is also to give people an appetizer before we reveal full details on Rockaway Festival 2012 later in the month.”
Tsk. The surprises never end. In any case, how about that, guys? You game or what?
