Feeling restless on a Sunday evening, we headed to Local Fest – a festival on fashion, food, art, music, etc – at Grand Indonesia
The series of inspiring music videos part deux was finished by Bangkutaman’s Ode Buat Kota, showing unusually quiet Jakarta.
The second half of the video preview was more uhm, mesmerising. Filled with dangerously inspiring videos that could make you leave your work and pursue your creative ambitions.
Anyway, next was a performance by The Upstairs. They opened with their new song and soon the empty space between the seats and the stage was filled with the band’s groupies, ‘Modern Darlings’.
As the curtain was down, the host asked the audience to move to the balcony to see the performance of Sir Dandy.
As the last video finished playing, a host emerged from the crowd announcing the next performance: White Shoes and the Couples Company.
When we reached the venue (Taman Ismail Marzuki – a big complex of arts and cultural venues), neither of us knew where the gig took place.
