The Jakarta punk-hardcore band’s crossover and comeback will remind their boroks (the band’s loyalists) who have long missed it to the good old days. Within the last year, this band founded in the mid 1990s has played again from one stage to the next with its old ways of performing and music. Since the 1990s, bequiet has played the sounds and lyrics that represent how young Jakartans interact with the city in their daily lives. These include the personal lives of the band members, and their communality in campus and their haunts. Their music never touches directly the political state of affairs like other punk bands but narrates the political impact of the ruling elites to youth daily life.

In this multimedia performance, they will launch their fourth album comprising old and new tracks, attesting their characteristics of being relevant to the youth of today. bequiet’s performance will also present their artwork and documentation in one presentation package supported by a 90’s style stage artistry.
