Farewell Concert:: Ed Eddy & Residivis

Ed Eddy & Residivis

Ed Eddy & Residivis has been known as a band with their songs inspired by daily happenings. Their debut album, “Lagu Kita Orang Indonesia“, was finally released in April 2008.

Two of their songs, “Kronologi Pistol & Amunisi” (The Chronology of Pistol and Ammunition), which is about the reckless use of firearms,  and “Anjing” (literally translated as dogs), their most controversial song about cops mistaken as street thugs, displeased the police and made Ed Eddy and his “partner-in-crime”, Igo, being sued. Both of them had to face a long drawn battle in court. Although Eddy and Igo always stated that the songs were not meant to insult the police, that they didn’t call the police as dogs, or use swearing word like ‘doggone it!’ or maybe ‘damn!’ for the police, the way they sing could carry various interpretations. As the result, judges found them guilty and sentenced them with a one year probation despite the trial drew protest from supporters of right to freedom of speech in Bali.

This concert, entitled ‘Aku Tak Sedih‘ (I’m Not Sad) will be the band’s farewell concert as the lead singer, Ed Eddy, will leave for Australia for good. Here Ed Eddy & Residivis will be featuring three other bands: de Buntu, Day After The Rain, and Dilla.

Fraternities & Sororities Party

ANCAK send offOne of the Forresters, our brother, Ancak Wardana, who is the Director of WALHI – an Indonesian environmental NGO – is going to the UK to pursue his Master Degree in Law.

He is a living sample of the youth, who has a strong vision of his homeland, Bali, particularly, in terms of the environment. We are so proud to have a Balinese like him. This farewell party was made to send him off with a spirit of brotherhood & sisterhood.

We started with this very funny, sarcastic movie from Sacha Baron Cohen, who is more famous as Ali G, or Borat entitled BARON.  You should see this movie, it’s hilarious!!

As the choice of the rest of the movies were up to the crowd, after several tries, we finally came up with a melancholy movie – almost shed us tears (thank God it was dark), AUGUST RUSH.

We had a good, simple, yet touching fraternities & sororities party.
