We’d Be Glowing In The Dark! “Coldplay Live 2012” Cinematic Experience

Coldplay Live 2012 Poster

When Coldplay has set plan to screen a one-night-only presentation of their live DVD simply titled “Coldplay Live 2012” in theaters worldwide, I was stoked because that might be the closest chance I get to see Coldplay ‘Live.’ It was not the first time a band set up a worldwide screening, Pearl Jam has done it on September 20, 2011 with PJ20. We had the pleasure organizing it in Jakarta. While Pearl Jam was a documentary about the band, Coldplay is a live concert taken from several venues of its Mylo Xyloto World Tour 2012, alongside with inserts of band commentary of behind the scene and tour production story.

The movie opens straight up with intro instrumental song “Mylo Xyloto” continued with “Hurts Like Heaven” just like in the record. Chris Martin in his usual jerking gesture, Will Champion bashing drums, Johnny Buckland riffing on his guitar, and Guy Berrymen strumming the bass strings.Continued with an old number “In My Place.” Continue reading “We’d Be Glowing In The Dark! “Coldplay Live 2012” Cinematic Experience”

The Cardigans-Gran Turismo JKT

I am of that age that going to concerts doesn’t excite me as it was when I was younger. Back then, I tried to score meet & greets, backstage passes and complimentary tickets.

I intended to get Festival ticket though, so this door prize ticket I got from Cardigans Night held at Tokove Kemang served as back up plan, but it turned out that I had no additional budget for entertainment, so guessed Tribune 2 will do.

#GrungeAtAmerica

There goes a hashtag from many tweets emitted from that auditorium in @America, the most modern cultural center in Jakarta. It was already 7.20 PM and I was late for that March 24, 2012 Navicula show at @America. As I entered the auditorium, “Aku Bukan Mesin” the 4th song was already playing.

It was your usual Navicula setlist. Like pros the quartet performed top-notched rock, well, grunge concert. It needs to be connected to grunge because earlier that day Pearl Jam Indonesia kicked-off a Blog Competition with topic on “Pearl Jam and Grunge.” Well, Navicula claimed that its genre is psychedelic grunge. Dankie’s blues solo guitar licks adds to Robi’s heavy and dirty guitar, kept by Made Indra’s bass and Gembull’s drum’s tight rhythm section. Psychedelic means that their music is intoxicating. And indeed it’s true. Continue reading “#GrungeAtAmerica”

Swing Out, Sister! A Java Jazz Fest Virgin Experience

It’s been the 6th Java Jazz Festival already, but haven’t been to it until this year of 2012. It was a last minute decision. The words of JJF is already buzzing on my Twitter stream, but hasn’t compelled to move it and buy ticket. The fact that Stevie Wonder’s special show ticket has already reached a staggering Rp.1.8 million even encouraged me more. Continue reading “Swing Out, Sister! A Java Jazz Fest Virgin Experience”
