In case you missed us posting this on Tuesday, here’s our Aweh Block Party video review. Reminisce!
Now on with this week’s events.
The results of the 48 Hour Film Project, in which several teams compete to finish a movie in a weekend, have been submitted. The premiere of every single one of these films will take place over the weekend, with different slots for different films on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Go along to support independent film in Korea and to marvel at the creatives involved in a project like this. You can buy tickets on the Megabox website in Korean.
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY
Exit Bar Parties
Vinyl-only boogie, Northern soul and 60′s rock/ psych music night ~! 힡 Records – L P 잔치 !~ is hitting Exit from 10:30pm this Friday, while monthly electro dance party Social Underground is on Saturday. Both are free, of course. Here’s the event page for SU, while the quirky promo vid can be seen below.
DOSHI POONGGYUNG MYUNGSANG
(도시 풍경 명상: A Meditation on this Urban Landscape)
The multi-disciplinary artist Matt Gale is showing his video installation at Gallery Golmok, located near Noksapyeong station. If you missed Gale’s last exhibition, a photography display which we previewed in this article, then Friday night is your chance to see some more of his artistic, architectural exploration at the launch. For a map and more details check the event page.
If you’ve been meaning to check out some of Korea’s more established indie acts then festival favourites The KOXX and Idiotape (see our video interview with the latter band here) are at V-Hall from 8pm on Fri, along with 24 Hours and Pia. Buy tickets from Yes24 for 44,000 won.
Platoon and Bling Magazine’s Flea Market
As well as being the best pop-up flea market in Seoul, Platoon’s monthly jumble sale is also the most established. With music spinning while you shop for second-hand bargains, it’s also a fun start to any Saturday evening – particularly if you stick around for MC Prime’s 1000 won auction. Doors open at 5pm. Get there early to grab the good stuff. More info on Platoon’s website.
The Cakeshop/ Multi boys are back in action this weekend, featuring Dubbel Dutch, the NYC bass DJ. As an artist who takes “inspiration from a variety of global styles including UK House and Grime, US Club Music, Dancehall / Soca, South African House, Kuduro, Bubbling, and Rap/RnB”, Dubbel Dutch slams through so many genres there’s sure to be something you’ll like during his Saturday night set. What’s more, we have 5 sets of pre-12pm guestlist to give away for his performance. ‘Like’ this post on our Facebook page to be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets courtesy of Multi Seoul. Here’s the Facebook event for more info on Dubbel Dutch.
The Big Fishes BYOB Party
Local music + bring your own beer is always going to be a good start to any Saturday night. Pick up some soju and a coffee can (trust us, it’s yummier than a Hot 6) from a convenience store, shake it up, and settle down at Prism Live Hall to watch some of Seoul’s raddest underground indie bands. Midnight Smokin’ Drive, The Quip, and more, are supporting. Directions and info here.
Late Halloween Party

A special tap dancing performance will also be included. Doors open at 9pm, entry costs 10,000 won (plus a free shot). Here’s the event page and here’s an interview we did with the revue’s troupe leader back in the summer.
