Grace Jones, the Jamaica-born legendary new wave/disco icon, is set to play a show in the island of Bali on October 8, 2016—this is a sentence that I never thought I’d write. A legend playing a show in Bali, whaddaya know!
Her music from the late ‘70s – with the string of albums which include Portfolio (1977), Fame (1978) up until her masterpiece Nightclubbing (1981) – has soundtracked multiple anthems for different kinds of people. Those people may have been looking for an identity or a group when the David Bowie/Iggy Pop-penned ‘Nightclubbing’ played in clubs. Jones, along with other musicians, lifted ‘disco’ to its stratospheric peak and carried it through the 1980s.
The 68 year old musician – who just put out a memoir cheekily titled I’ll Never Write My Memoirs in 2015 – will play in the Potato Head Beach Club, Seminyak, Bali and her set will start at 4 pm. For further information and to purchase the ticket, drop by Potato Head’s official website (those in Singapore can also purchase the tickets in Potato Head Folk, Keong Saik Rd).
