Music Gallery is an annual music festival held by BSO Band FEBUI to showcase indie bands in Indonesia. For this year alone, the music festival took place on Saturday, March 14th 2015 at Skenoo Hall, Gandaria City in South Jakarta. The 5th Music Gallery holds the theme of “A Euphoric Music Festival Celebrating Music and Arts” and is a theme that carries a blend of well planned surprises featuring many Indonesian indie bands such as Trees and Wild, Mondo Gascaro, NAIF, SORE, Jirapah, Payung Teduh, Barasuara, Banda Neira, Ramayana Soul, Monkey to Millionaire, MMS, and many more. But what strongly distinguishes this year’s Music Gallery and the previous ones is the presence of France-based international act known as Tahiti 80.

But before we got into it, there were some of local indie acts performed there from Trees and Wild, Mondo Gascaro, NAIF, SORE, Jirapah, Payung Teduh, Barasuara, and many more. Those names stand on Music Gallery’s main purpose to showcase good quality indie bands in Indonesia. The 5th Music Gallery committee team was also giving their main stage to selected demo bands from Bageurs, Solace, Selimut Coklat, Bookstore Club, Circa Rama, and FourTwnty. However of all the name we mentioned above, we gotta give big applause to SORE. This independent band brought their chamber pop-jazz-pyschedilic vibes into another level, as we witnessed their member Ade Paloh scratching his lovely guitar like a crazy person. What a scene!
