"This smoking-hot indie dance outfit from Indonesia is on a mission to teach kids how to dance." - The Star Online

With layered synth, electronic backbeats, tennis visors and matching sweatsuits, Goodnight Electric fuses elements from electro, pop and new wave, and delivers synth pop with tongue in cheek.

Currently one of the most popular indie acts in Indonesia, the trio is Henry Foundation (vocals/programming), Bondi Goodboy (synth/vocals) and Oomleo (synth/vocals). Aside from having played at many of Indonesia's major music festivals, Goodnight Electric has earned accolades such as nominations for Best New Artist at MTV Indonesia Music Awards 2005 and Best Live PA at Paranoia Award Hard Rock FM Jakarta 2005.

Hear them Goodnight Electric perform songs from popular albums, Love and Turbo Action (2004) and Electroduce Yourself (2007).

Opening for Goodnight Electric is Singapore's trio, Elektone. With live indie guitar sounds, effects and synthesisers backed by thumping dance beats, it's a potent aural attack that brings back the pop, electronica and indie sound of the 80s and beyond.

The party continues after Goodnight Electric's set with a DJ set from B6. B6 is one-half of the duo IGO and one of Shanghai's most well-known cutting-edge electronic DJs.


Then there's Love is Indie Air at Blu Jaz with acts like The Pinholes, Tiramisu, Giants Must Fall, an Indie Disco set afterwards etc. Check it out.
