Musical Notes II

Swedish singer Jens Lekman is coming to Seoul for a couple of gigs at the end of November. Nov. 29 and 30 at Freebird in Hongdae to be precise. Thanks to John for organizing that. If you do not know Lekman, you can read about him in the New York Times and Pitchfork Media.

After taking a bit of a break, it looks like Vidulgi Ooyoo has a big November planned, with at least four concerts.

  • Nov. 1 at 7:30 at Bowie
  • Nov. 1 at 10 at Freebird
  • Nov. 15 at 7:30 at Badabie
  • Nov. 21 at 7:30 at Bbang

Fabulous Pleasures has a link to some Stephen Malkmus stuff, including a Youtube of his concert in Korea a couple of years ago. Also features Stephen’s work with Crust Brothers, back in the 1990s (for you Malkmus completists).

Don’t forgot that the Battle of the Bands will be going on throughout November at Stompers in Itaewon. Some solid bands are lined up.

Finally, don’t forget that the end of the year is the biggest time of year for concerts in Korea, so we should have a pretty full line-up of events being announced soon. Crying Nut has a couple of shows (already on the calendar). Even Lee Hyori will have a big bash over in Jamsil. I will be announcing those events as I know more.

  2. Thanks for the update about tickets. However I have been told that Mix Tape is not involved in the after party, aside from possibly Deejaying a bit. Whatever the case, it looks like a fun night.
