Efek Rumah Kaca Stunned with Collaborations on #TibaTibaKonserMlg
When Efek Rumah Kaca announced its vocalist departure to New York, US, it instantly hit us that the band will definitely go on a long hiatus. However, Cholil Mahmud turns out to be quite the homesick type as he has returned home twice or three times, and for his homecoming ERK hold a sudden concert called #TibaTibaKonser. The series started a year ago, when Cholil and co decided to get back together for a surprise appearance at Soundrenaline 2016, afterward #TibaTibaSuddenlyKonser was held at Gudang Sarinah Ekosistem, Jakarta. Ruru Radio brought the second installment this year by bringing the entourage to some cities in Indonesia. After Jakarta and Semarang, Malang became the latest host of #TibaTibaKonserMlg and it was held yesterday, 27 August 2017 at Brawijaya Edupark (Senaputra). With the announcement of three days prior to the concert, it managed to gather quite a crowd. On the press conference held earlier, it was said that it is the concept of announcing the concert very short to the D-day. Bandung would likely to be the next host of #TibaTibaKonser and of course, there is no date or further details revealed.
On their concert in Malang, Efek Rumah Kaca said that they have never played in the city and they enthusiastically spilled about the collaboration with local musicians. For three hour straight, the audience were accompanied with familiar tunes from the band. There was collaboration with Intenna, Wake Up! Iris, Tani Maju and many more. From 8 PM to 11 PM, the combination between these surprising collaborations and the comical MC of Adjisdoaibu, we were truly entertained. “Cinta Melulu”, ” Melankolia”, “Pasar Bisa Diciptakan (Biru)”, “Lagu Kesepian” and a total of approximately 18 songs. You can see people from end to end, and all of them were singing out loud to Efek Rumah Kaca on a relatively high stage. There are F&B, lifestyle and record tenants on the venue making the concert experience more lively. The band also spilled that there will be a commemoration of their debut album’s 10th year anniversary. This year they are still looking for a special event to be held next year and the preparation for it will begin this year. For those who have missed their music, wait no longer, because their next album is planned to be released next year.
