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!

Sting: Back To Bass: Live in Jakarta, Dec 15, 2012. Review. Music Videos & Setlist.  

by: @agunsux __stingIt was sunny day when i’ve decided to go to Jakarta from Bandung. I had to meet a friend to do some shit related to money at noon. But the most important thing was there are one band and one living legend going to perform at night. The band was Guns And Roses and the singer was Sting. They’re gonna perform at the same night. Different venues. It was a fucked up feeling i get. Till now. I haven’t decided which one to go. I haven’t got the ticket. I didn’t know which one to buy. I’m a go-show gig specialist. I was a big fan of of Guns n’ Roses back in 90’s. But weren’t we all? At the same time i am also a fan of The Police and Sting. I listen to them quite often. Well not that often. _sting2They’re both not at their prime to be honest. But sometimes you have to buy memories to bring it back in mind. They’ve reached their peak at 90’s. Guns and Roses at “Use Your Illusions” and Sting at “Ten Summoner’s Tale” or perhaps “Mercury Falling“. Your call. Or just let your soul guide you, guide your way which one is their peak album. I’ve made up my mind. I decided to go to Guns And Roses gig. I have watched Sting back in ’94. Oh now you can guess my age. Yes you’re a genius. I’m in my late 20’s. But then at noon there was a shocking announcement from local police (Polda). Guns and Roses performance was postponed to Dec 16, 2012 (today) and relocated the Venue to MEIS, Ancol due to safety and bad weather possibilities. I didn’t buy it. I still don’t.  The announcement was too absurd. Something has happened. And i didn’t want to speculate. Well i lied. I did speculate. I still do. I have my own theory. Eager to find out? I’ll let you know. But i have to kill you afterward. Haha! Sting. My second choice moved up to my top priority last night. It was a good concert as always. I haven’t heard Sting dissapointed their audiences at his concert. Have you? The concept was Back To Bass. Just like the day i have watched. Vinnie (my fave) back on drumset. He was the drummer in Ten Summoner’s Tale album. Dominique on guitar is just like Boz to Moz. Dedicated to Sting since the 90’s. There’s a lady (pardon me i don’t know her name) as a back vocalist. She had a bigger role in “Symphonicity” Tour. _sting5I personally wanna see the “Symphonicity” concept. Sit back. Relax. I wanna see Sting as a singer. Not the ex frontman of The Police. The setlist i can assure you more than 70% of them were the same last time i watched in ’94. Added from some tracks from “Mercury Falling” (i was expecting “Let Your Soul Be Your Pilot” or “I Was Brought To My Senses”) and “Brand New Day” albums. Bottomline Sting brought back the memories to the audiences. For The Police fans you still enjoyed ten tracks. There were twenty one songs last night. _sting6So now i’m gonna miss Guns And Roses gig today. But that’s ok. I’ll see Rivers Cuomo from Weezer next year in January with my very own eyes. Front row. It’s a promise.. i guess.
