Win Tickets: Ra Ra Riot Live in Seoul

Ra Ra Riot’s first Seoul show is at Club FF in Hongdae. The New York-based band has recently delved into synth pop for their January 2013 album “Beta Love,” a change from their usual statement baroque pop style achieved through use of classical instruments such as the violin. This new style should make for an...

Catching New Blue Death

As the rain ceases to descend on a miserable day in Seoul, it’s a far cry from inside club Keu Keu, where New Blue Death’s Adam Brennan and Ethan Waddell are sat relaxing after their show. The atmosphere is chilled and ambient. Their set-up for the gig was not the most exemplary: no stage, band...

In Retrospect: On Sparrow Hills

Since it’s musicians On Sparrow Hills’ last gig this Saturday night, we asked vocalist, drummer and guitarist Adam Brennan to gather some photos for us which represent the three years that the band have been together (which is practically decades for an expat band in Seoul). Adam also supplied the captions for the pictures. Opening...

There are...

Events This Week: 14/11/2011

As well as the usual Hongdae gigs we tend to bang on about, there are a load of alternative things going on this week.  And by alternative, I mean events that don’t involve getting drunk and accosting the Pad Thai guy for more peanut sauce. FYI: he’s based outside FF, in case that’s what you...

Events This Week: 17/10/2011

Sometimes I wish Korea would stand still for 2 days – including all the people in it. I really need a night in to pluck my eyebrows, paint my nails and do some chores. Everyone needs time to lie down, eat Pizza School and watch TV shows back to back, right? I get really uncomfortable...
