Sleepless Nights, Tired Eyes, Bintangs, Kahluas, Lots and Lots of Tempe : Babak 4

What is it about Bandung that has not been said already? Cool "indie" people? Check. Cool bands? Check. Cool clothing distros? Check. Cool climate? Check. 7 uber cool abangs from KL taking an 8 hour train from Jogja to the Kota Kembang for a gig? C-c-check it out this! Ngahaha so geli right, i know.
We arrived in Bandung after an 8 hour train ride, we left Wednesday morning. A long journey means a lot of sleep for Rafiq heehee! Met up with the Anak-Anak Collective, Deden and Adi,.. and spent other times with them, Ivan, Hangga and friends from dance rock band Inspirational Joni. It looked like a whole platoon

"The hills are alive with the sound of music"







We're thankful that the Bandung scenesters managed to cook up a show for us, as it was pretty difficult to have a show in Bandung due to a recent stampede tragedy at a punk gig that left 10 people dead.. So at one point the prospects of a Bandung show was bleak. Skali not only did we score a show, twas a studio show at that! the sempiter the better, we thought
Apparently we were going to play in an underground jam studio... so we were pretty stoked to hear that. So when gig day came (the day after we arrived), we got more excited. This jam studio was a real thrill, above at ground level they had a kedai video game and people were battling their Winning Elevens without a single care of whats going on underneath.. very unassuming place lah!

K/C came up first of the three closing bands







Köntrasösial !! We owe Ebby the vokills ;-)

Then it was Orbit. What better way to end the the tour...








So that was it. I dont know how else to tell you people, but this whole touring thing is just too great. Ours was very small scale but I sure hope this is a start for bigger things to come... It was a humbling experience. We've had the pleasure to meet many wonderful souls, and played with great bands throughout and hung out with the coolest cats in their respective towns ! Thank you to ALL individuals involved, down to every roach and cat that we saw along the way.. Jumpa lagi.
