Adam Sullivan and the Trees from the US along with Hays from Russia have been performing around Korea for the past week and are bringing their powerful music to Club Heavy in Daegu tonight as part of the RoK Around the World 2016 series hosted by RoK Gi Yeon Promotions.
Adam Sullivan has returned to Korea bringing with him his unique songwriting style mixed with emotional and often humorous lyrics. Filled with keys, guitar, ukulele, and even some a cappella singing, each set is a warm, heartfelt experience for all in attendance. Tonight’s show in Daegu will be Adam Sullivan and the Trees’ first time to the city.
My favorite song to watch out for? “Cool Kids”, with its thought-provoking chorus, “I just want to love you forever… You’re so selfish, and cool.”
Adam Sullivan and the Trees will be opening the show tonight promptly at 8 pm.
Following Adam will be the always amazing Blue Turtle Land out of Seoul. From the moment frontman Hong hits that first key, you’ll be blown away and taken back to the time of hippies, free love, and spine-tingling rock ‘n’ roll. Enjoy their takes on Hendrix and plenty of originals and jams throughout their set.
First timers to Daegu, as well as Korea, are the Russian band Hays out of Vladivostok.
They have been wowing Korean audiences since their debut show at Club Sharp in Seoul last Friday. With influences stemming from the golden days of grunge, the guys have incredible passion on stage and bring a powerful energy that every crowd has latched onto immediately. After putting on an amazing show Tuesday in Jeonju, the crowd rushed for CDs, autographs and photos of one of their new favorite bands. Expect people tonight to jump and scream during “Breathe” and sing along to the beautifully crafted ballad “Same Way to You.” The band has truly enjoyed their tour, seeing Korea, eating everything, rocking hard and partying and are stoked for their one-night-only gig in Daegu before heading down to Busan!
The closing act for tonight will be Hongdae locals Project: Impair. A relatively new hard-rocking duo that features members Jun (of WhoWho) and Eun-Ho (who has been playing with Space Papa and Igloo Bay). Their energy on stage is raw and powerful and Jun’s speedy, aggressive guitar playing matches well with Eun-Ho’s fast-paced drumming. Look forward to being blown away by the sound coming from these two as you add a new Korean favorite to your list!
It all happens tonight (October 6) at Club Heavy from 8 pm until late and tickets are only 10,000 won. Don’t miss out on any of these acts who so rarely, if ever, have found their way to Daegu. For more information, check out the Facebook event page here.
