Grace Jones Live at Potato Head Beach Club
Katamama’s sister outlet, Potato Head Beach Club, hosted pop culture icon Grace Jones for her first performance in Indonesia earlier this year.
Known for her striking androgynous look and avant-garde performance style, Grace has been a recognizable figure in the international art and popular culture scene since the early ’70s. After a successful international modeling career, she moved into music by adapting the then-emerging New Wave and Post Disco genres to create a distinctive style all of her own. As well as her own songs, Grace was known for reimagining popular songs by artists such as Sting, Iggy Pop and David Bowie, and Roxy Music.
Festival-goers at Potato Head Beach Club witnessed Jones’ unmistakable performances up close, including hit tracks Pull Up To The Bumper and Slave to the Rhythm, a song during which it has become her trademark to hula hoop.
Also featuring on the bill was Beach Club favourite, DJ Harvey, an artist who moves between the genres of punk, funk, house, techno and disco and whose music, according to Resident Advisor, is ‘always dripping in sexual tension’.
Grace Jones’ special set is just the latest showcase from an international act taking place at Potato Head Beach Club. In August 2016, Disclosure and Mark Ronson headline the two-day Sunny Side Up Tropical Festival and previously, Snoop Lion, John Legend, Ellie Goulding, M.I.A and Fat Boy Slim have all performed at the Beach Club.
