A Citybreak in Seoul: Day One

A Citybreak in Seoul: Day One

A tall purple sky and a coliseum of heat-warped white brick stretched ahead of me at the entrance to the Hyundai Card Citybreak festival. The number of people outside belied the soon-to-swell mass that heaved in Jamsil’s Sports Complex for the two-day rockathon. Don’t sweat if you missed it — because you certainly would have...

Seoul World DJ Festival 2012

It’s that time of year again when it’s highly possible for you to dance for 16 hours straight, only to wake up surrounded by 10 Koreans dressed as Oompa Loompas taking your picture (this has actually happened…CHINCHA).  Seoul World DJ Festival isn’t always well-known for its line-up.  It is, however, known for giving you a...

Review: Unionway Fest 2012

Last weekend Seoul’s very own Unionway Krew brought the city a tattooed-fistful of talent from the peninsula and beyond. With a line-up boasting the best of the local scene plus guests from Japan, both the local boys and the visitors blew the crowd away. If you made it to Prism Hall on Saturday night you...
No Age Live at Rolling Hall

No Age Live at Rolling Hall

The unusually young demographic of the audience, Rolling Hall’s no smoking policy and guitarist Randy Randall’s refusal of a free shot of vodka (offered up to him by one generous fan) echoed the all ages, alcohol and drug-free ethos of Downtown Los Angeles venue, The Smell, where No Age played their first shows. No wonder,...

Used Cassettes

Ahead of the Loose Union party this weekend we tracked down Adam Hickey from Used Cassettes and asked him a few questions about his band, how they started, and what’s on the horizon for the indie five-piece in the future. Used Cassettes have been working as part of Loose Union recently, and will be launching...
Band Interview: Apollo 18

Band Interview: Apollo 18

Apollo 18 have come a long way since forming just outside of Seoul in summer 2008. In three short years guitarist/vocalist Hyunseok Choi, bassist/vocalist Daeinn Kim, and drummer Sangyun Lee have built up their reputation as a solid and alternative rock group, making music from a genre that isn’t widely listened to in Korea. They...
