Indonesian punk band Soekarja Street Crew have fired member Akhir Darsito after he threw a glass of water at Yaewon Jeong, the frontwoman and guitarist for the South Korean band, Rumkicks.
At a Rumkick’s recent show in Purwokerto on the island of Java, Indonesia, on January 8, Yaewon Jeong, the frontwoman and guitarist for the South Korean band, Rumkicks was talking to the audience about how they had been considered “fake” or “plastic” punks by some, when she was hit in the face by a glass of water.
After the show, the event management company that organised the gig tweeted: “At Complete Control Events we will not tolerate any forms of online or physical abuse towards any of our bands. At a show in Indonesia Yeawon had a plastic glass thrown at her by a cowardly pathetic moron. Please just f**k off from any of our shows if you don’t respect the band.”
