It’s cold, isn’t it? Still, we all know that doesn’t mean anything here in Korea. It’s always someone’s birthday or leaving party so we have to go out, right? Here’s another week of what’s going on.
Cosmos Musicians Day – Wednesday
A live jam session will show artists unveil their special talent in a setting we’re not overly used to. Held at one of our favorite venues, Platoon, Kunsthalle, Cosmos Musicians Day is promoting unity so the audience can get together with featured Korean artists from some of the most reputable musical instrument brands. This will allow some of the biggest fans to see some great musicians in an environment that they are unlikely to experience in the same way again. Visit here for more details. This event is tonight, so give your TV shows a miss and go out and have some fun.

City Rock Party::: Daybreak, Kingston Rudieska, The Koxx -Saturday
City Rock Party is an exciting event for those who want enjoy or want to invest more time in listening to Korean music. Playing are three of the hottest bands in Korea right now, Daybreak, Kingston Rudieska and The Koxx: all fresh from a summer of headlining at rock festivals with great reputations. Kingston Rudieska is a band that’s close to our hearts after dancing to them at several venues this summer, most memorably at Jisan Rock Festival (check out one of their songs here). This is most definitely worth the price of 35-45,000 and if you get your cold feet outside to transfer by the end of tomorrow you can pay a measly 17,500-22,500 won (lowest is standing). To get a ticket visit interpark (the website is all in Korean).
