Amplify Korea: Episode 69

This week I preview shows happening in Busan, Ulsan and Daegu, with new music coming out of Changwon and Daegu.

Changwon based act mcthfg released new album When You Awake at the start of this month, and I kick the show off with a track from that album. There’s also new sounds from Daegu acts Hi Elisa and Ashtray. Hi Elisa have a busy weekend, playing at Club Heavy in Daegu, and also making it to Yongsoro Fest in Busan.

Yongsoro Fest is a 2 day event taking place in KSU between Ovantgarde, Vinyl Underground, and Club Realize. There are 24 bands playing, and you can get a 2 day ticket to catch them all for 25,000won if you book in advance.

Low Feels are off to Ulsan on Saturday night for Sticky Fingers’ Paddy’s Day event, while 참깨와 솜사탕 are in the middle of a nationwide tour that brings them to Daegu and Busan this weekend.
