A baby named Nirvana...
It didn't seem crazy, to go clear across Java for one show. We needed a good spot to fly to Malaysia anyways. Arc Yellow, the only band I knew of the 27 or so playing, picked me up. It was a birthday party for a baby named Nirvana. The venue, a gigantic event hall. Huge. Sound bounced everywhere as 50 kids sat on the side of the stage. It wasn't until these ladies got on stage that the crowd got more involved. Members of Fleur / Sugar Kane. "Paranoid Android" and Silverchair covers.
Dilla Sugar Sun brought some guitar abuse with their own tunes that reminded me of Alex White or Marissa from Screaming Females. So fun. Local booze flowed, and a clear local favorite were up. With that, finally kids launched themselves off the stage, into themselves, and the hard tiled floor. Nirvana covers aplenty. Dave Grohl should bring Foo Fighters for a few DIY shows in Indonesia. These kids seriously deserve it. What a great night. Thanks, Bogor folks. You're all too kind.
A full day in Jakarta proper, and we head to Malaysia for some hard noise.
