Shaggydog can be considered as legend in Indonesia’s music scene as they will reach their 20th anniversary this year. The ska band have endured the hardships as a band for a long time with minimum member changes. As an appreciation and gratitude for their 20 year long career, the band hailing from Yogyakarta will hold a solo concert. In the past, the band who is fronted by Heruwa was predicted to be unable to make it past the glory days of ska music in the early 2000. But they managed to stay together and prove it wrong. They even broke out from major record label, and made their own independent record label, Doggy House Records that gives opportunities to emerging ska musicians to showcase their talents. Last year, Shaggydog have released their latest album “Putra Nusantara” on digital format in conjunction with Indonesia’s Independence Day on 17 August 2016. They also have launched the physical release of the record in November 2016 and released a special vinyl set during Record Store Day 2017 in April.
Having had a packed schedule throughout the year, the band have prepared a special showcase to commemorate their 20th anniversary at their hometown of Yogyakarta. On 13 December 2017, the concert will be held at Liquid Next Generation. Shaggydog will present other collaborators such as JRX (Superman is Dead), NDX A.K.A and a special secret guest to their stage. There will be an exhibition to display the band’s memorabilia including single or album artworks, physical release display as well as merchandise. The concert also aims to raise funds for natural disaster victims in Yogyakarta which could be donated throughout the concert or via bank transfer to Aloysius Odyssey Sanco (BCA with Account no: 1691935529). The presale ticket for the concert is available for you to purchase from 27 November – 8 December 2017 at IDR35K (+ special gift) at TNGRDEADLY, Doggy Shop and Liquid Bar and Kitchen. On the spot ticket can be grabbed for IDR50K that includes a special gift as well.
