Weezer Live In Jakarta, Jan 8, 2013: Review, Videos & Setlist  _WEEZER-WEB-BANNER

The most anticipated concert of early 2013 has arrived. Weezer was very popular in Indonesia back in mid 90’s. They still are. Weezer was the answer for those not really into heavy metal, grunge, hip-hop and other music genre that was big in the 90’s. Pop music with distortion. Love songs with hair-metal riffs. Power-pop, so they say. Some say nerd-rock. Your call. Weezer was an ok sign. It was ok to be a nerd. It was ok if you have a weird hair-do. It was ok if you have moustache. It was ok if you wear a tie to your office and still listen to rock music. It was ok if you wear Buddy Holly (or Woody Allen?) glasses . . It’s ok if you listen to Weezer. If it’s too loud turn it down.

For South East Asia, they only play Jakarta, Indonesia. And then they head to Australia afterwards. The concept was Greatest Hits + Blue Album (From Start To Finish). Man, how can you can skip this golden moment?

Show started at 8pm. The venue was at Lapangan D Senayan. It’s a football court. It was rainy day. But the rain stopped at noon. Few hours before Weezer performed. But the mud remained. But who cares anyway. It’s Weezer. I didn’t give a damn.

They start the show with “(If You’re Wondering If I Want You Too) I Want You Too,” a song off their 2009 album, Raditude. They played the setlist chronologically backward, so they actually skipped an album, 2010’s Hurley. Then they move forward, er, backward to Red Album (2008) with their hits Troublemaker and Pork And Beans. And then to the year 2005, two songs from Make Believe album with Perfect Situation and Beverly Hills. Then  Green Album (2001) with Island in The Sun and Hash Pipe.

And then we went to the 90’s with their cult album, Pinkerton (1996), with Across The Sea, El Schorcho and Tired of Sex. And they took a break to prepare themselves to perform their full album, the masterpiece, Blue Album. As the recess took place, Karl, the unofficial fifth Weezer member narrated a slideshow on the big screen how Weezer was formed until they gained worldwide popularity with their Blue Album.  As Karl finished his documentary, the band hit the stage again. They played the Blue Album in order. From My Name Is Jonas until Only In Dreams. Magical!
