A Cup of Coffee With Copeland

11:47 AM

Yihaa. I'm pretty excited welcoming my May. Especially 8 May. Oh...you should know how i'm craving for this date. And...this is it. My 8 May for COPELAND! wohooo ♥♥
Hello, Bandung. For the second time i visited this town with my bestie and SUPEEERRB friends. Perjalanan jauh dimulai. Btw, i had a new experience. I use a bus for this trip. Hell-ya! Menyenangkan. Sooo far, bis dapat menjadi alternatif perjalanan dari Semarang ke Bandung. Only 90.000 IDR. Lumayan, dapat selimut, berhenti buat makan di suatu tempat antah berantah, dan...sumpah. Mau muntah supirnya nyetir ngebut gas poll! I think the driver wants to kill us. Really. *horor*. Bis jalan pukul 8 malam, dan tiba di tujuan kira-kira setengah 4 dini hari. Subuh2 coy, bayangin. Nangkring di terminal pinggir jalan, waiting for Igoh to pick us, with a coldy cold weather. Freezing. God..Bandung dingin tingkat dewa! Derita tidak berhenti disitu. Plan A gagal yang kemudian mengharuskan rombongan bertujuh..TUJUH ORANG *emosi* naik a mini car like..err..Yaris? Yess. Yaris for seven..ehem..SEVEN PASSENGER. Cool.
Mendekati H-4(jam) acara..yeah you know who's the most hectic people. Ladies. Mondar-mandir, treak sana-sini, tanya sana-sini. Very hectic. Lebih tepatnya..berisik. But it's fun. When you wants to be a beautiful girl..itu bukan tentang pendapat orang, tapi lebih kepada kepuasan diri sendiri. When you look at yourself in the mirror and said "wow, it's that me? Look so gorgeous, stunning, and beautiful in every single way.." and voila! kadar kepercayaan diri meningkat drastis, bung! Itulah wanita. Lols.
Antapani menuju El-Dorado which is on the top of Dago (hampir ke Lembang yang supeeerr dingin) memakan waktu sekitar 1 jam. And there it goes..tetap dengan formasi yang sama (dan sepertinya yaris perlu mengganti champaigne mereka) YARIS FOR SEVEN PASSENGER. Berasa angkot deh pangku-pangkuan. Fiuhh. Begitu tiba..terlihat euforia lautan muda-mudi Bandung, bahkan dari seberang kota sekalipun, antusias dengan band asal US ini. Beranggotakan Aaron Marsh, Bryan Laurenson, Jon, and Stephen. They have a good music. Really like this one. You should heard Coffee from they first album, Beneath Medicine Tree. Oh..melting mendengar lagu itu, for the first time you hear it. Then, the second album gak kalah oke. Eat, Sleep, Repeat. And the last album (before they decided to break up) You Are My Sunshine. Jagoan lagunya Chin Up. Very recomended. I like this one very much.
Sooo...kebetulan mereka mengadakan konser Farewell Tour yang (alhamdulillah) diadakan pula di Indonesia. Tepatnya Bandung. And lucky, tiketnya cukup murah. Langsung tancap begitu announcement ini keluar!
First, sedikit menyebalkan karena konser ngaret sejam. Dijadwalkan pukul 8 and we were waiting for 1 hour. And...this is it! COPELAND! awawawawaww!
Opening cukup meriah. Dengan streaming tentang profil band, kemudian tentang promotor (me love NADAPROMOTAMA!) dan here we go..Copeland! Most of all, they played so damn good! AWESOME. and i can't figure it out, i'm crying when they played my favorite song..Chin Up. Sedih inget mereka akan membubarkan diri. So hard to accept it, but their song always gonna be my playlist. All the time. Selesai pukul setengah 12 malam. Closing sungguh mengharukan. You Have My Attention menjadi pesan, bahwa even mereka bubar, lagu mereka akan selalu menjadi teman semua penggemarnya. Irreplaceable. We heart you, boys. Really appreciate your creativity to make a good sound. So fascinating. Para penonton sungguh menikmati rangkaian lagu yang (katanya) hampir mencapai 20 list lagu. They sing a long together. Sampai ada yang sepertinya khatam dalam menghafal lirik seluruh lagu Copeland. K.E.W.L.
Finally, mereka pamit. Sebenarnya mungkin kuran gereget konsernya, kurangnya mereka dalam berkomunikasi. But most of all, they pretty good. Gimanapun, this is they first and last concert in Indonesia. Really happy. Akhirnya mereka ke Indonesia hiks (nangis terharu).

Good job, boys. Really good performance. We loves you always, Copeland. Your song, always gonna be in our head.
So long..farewell.
