Gigs, gigs and more gigs. This weekend is all about art, feelings, expression, music and performance; everything in the hipster bible. Hongdae, Gangnam and even Yongsan have events on, so there’s no excuse to stay in by your pixelated fire this weekend. It’s officially warm outside now (0 degrees).

Friday

Gogo Star, Super 8 Bit and Telepathy, Hongdae

Gogo Star are an electro-pop, post-punk indie band who always dress as though it’s Halloween and get the crowd pumping. Along with Super 8 Bit and Telepathy, this will be an electrifying night. It is at Sangsang Madang, a small but atmospheric venue in the center of Hongdae.

Tickets are 35,000W and the fun starts at 8pm.

Seoul Night

Seoul Night Feel Sound Vol. 4 is the biggest event in Hongdae this weekend. Music across 7 venues including FF, Gogos 2, and Freebird. It’s a wristband only kinda deal where you get access to a plethora of live music and DJ’s for just the standard 10,000W.

Saturday

Super Sketch

This art explosion is hosted by our friends at Super Color Super. The night is a creative collaboration between artists and musicians which brings the audience into the mix by using overhead projectors in a platter of live art and psychedelic visuals which will be like nothing you have ever witnessed before. We attended a Super Sketch event before, so if you want an idea for what it will entail have a look at our preview post or if you prefer then here is the page.

It is at Platoon in Gangnam, 16,000W Pre-sale, 20,000W Door, 8pm-3am.
