Amplify Korea: Episode 72

This week I preview shows happening in Daegu and Busan, including the 17th anniversary of Basement, a Busan institution.

극렬 are local legends in Daegu, and this Saturday you can catch them at Club Heavy along with a few great punk bands. Also in Daegu this weekend, Lang Lee makes the trip down for a rather expensive show at Club Heavy on Sunday.

Busan is full of shows this weekend, with Lang Lee also playing on Saturday, while Rough Cuts play HQ, Banana Monkey Spanner are at Ovantgarde, Bathing Belles are at Basement, and 워두머신 play Club Cynic.

Also, Jeju / Seoul act Respects shared new music in January that I missed, and I play you one of those songs this week.
