“SUPERBAD!” Vol. 58: “Farewell Old Chum”
Sunday, 27 April 2014
8 pm – 1 am
The Jaya Pub,
Gd. Jaya parking area, Jl. M.H. Thamrin Kav. 1-2,
Jakarta Pusat (Right across Hotel Sari Pacific)
Apparently, there is a rumor going around that this will be the very last, meaning: there will never ever be another; “SUPERBAD!” gig at The Jaya Pub. This alleged sudden end to what has become one of the most awaited regular gigs in town, is said to be brought on by the untimely closing down of its venue, The Jaya Pub.
Yes, after 39 years of rockin’, rollin’, and jazzin’ it up, this beloved-by-its-regular-customers ol’ pub seemed to finally be retiring from the limelight. The closing down and furthermore demolishing of the old Jaya Pub building will be carried out sometime next month. Evidently, the Jaya Building had broken the law when they leased their bit of land next to the canal to The Jaya Pub, where it was supposed to be uninhabited according to the city regulation that no one had paid any attention to for decades. But then Jokowi came along and recognized the blunder, hence the assuming end of the road for The Jaya Pub and “SUPERBAD!”…
OR IS IT?!
Well, aren’t we lucky? It appears that the show will continue after all! The Jaya Pub will relocate a little bit further down the Jaya Building parking area, at the backside. And as for “SUPERBAD!”, we will celebrate this Vol. 58 as the last one held in the old Jaya Pub this month, with three most excellent Jakarta bands. Then we will start a new era of “SUPERBAD!” in a brand new Jaya Pub (with the exact same look and atmosphere as the old one) next month… With a Big she-Bang!!
