Holy Two (FR)

* Holy Two (France) *
With slow anthems and the songs of snake charmers, Holy Two captivates. Vocalist/keyboardist Elodie and guitarist Hadrien create sounds and shapes, building a dark electro-pop, delicate but incisive. After a stunning performance at the Inrocks Labs and the Inouïs of the Printemps de Bourges, the duo from Lyon do not cease to surprise. More than two years on the road, they have performed alongside French groups La Femme, Jain, The Do, Jeanne Added, with two sold-out headline shows in Paris (Le Point Éphémère, Les Étoiles) and are welcomed with open arms by the French press. The duo released first album ‘Invisible Matters’ on May 25, 2018 before embarking on the road to festivals around the world, bringing them finally to Busan.

* The Blind Suns (France) *
French-Polish band The Blind Suns play a shoegaze dream-pop with surf-fuzz guitars and reverb drenched vocal harmonies. For fans of The Jesus & Mary Chain, Dick Dale, Mazzy Star. Currently signed to Deaf Rock Records, with appearances at SXSW 2016 & 2017 as well as Levitation Festival, the band released latest LP “Offshore” on April 20th, 2018.
대서양 바닷가의 선선한 바람에서부터 거친 슬라브 대륙까지, 프랑스-폴란드 밴드 The Blind Sun는 유럽의 음악적 요소들을 모아 서핑-퍼즈 기타와 리버브에 흠뻑 적신 보컬 하모니가 곁들여진 그들 특유의 팝을 만들어냈다. 최근 이들은 미국 출신의 프로듀서 찰스 로웰 (Crocodiles) 과 함께 4월 20일에 발매된 새 LP “Offshore”를 작업했다.

* The Vastards 더바스타즈 *
Still true believers in the romance of a rock and roll band, The Vastards blend pop and punk, and big dreams and harsh realities, into a sound reminiscent of brilliant city nights and endless youth run wild. Having released their first single “Sugar Free” in May 2017, and their 2nd “End of Summer” that September, The Vastards are ready to move.

2017년 2월. 드러머 함진우와 보컬 성기명을 중심으로 4명의 남자들이 모였다. 대충 모여서 놀아보자는 말에 심지어 한 멤버는 기타와 케이블만 달랑 들고 나왔다. 그렇게 부산 문현동의 조그만 합주실로 모인 네 사람은 합주 한 시간 뒤, 격양된 표정으로 밖으로 나와, 커피로 건배하며 밴드 이름으로 쓸만한 단어들을 생각나는 대로 쏟아냈다.
그렇게 더 바스타즈(the Vastards)가 탄생.

Taco Tuesdays @ Abnormal Taphouse and Cantina!

Every Tuesday from 5:00 to 10:00 at Abnormal Taphouse and Cantina, we’ll be offering the people of Busan the best taco deals in town in our effort to bring the American tradition of Taco Tuesday to Haeundae.

For only 2000 won, you’ll get yourself a seasoned pork hard shell taco topped with our homemade pico de gallo, salsa, sour cream, and shredded sharp cheddar. How many can you get? Well, that’s up to you and your belly.

Now there is a catch… If you want to stuff yourself with these tacos, you need to order a beer. The good news is we have 13 phenomenal craft beers on tap, including ones from our house brewery, Abnormal Beer Company, out of San Diego, California!

Alright, folks, our new weekly trivia night is continuing to build, and we are always looking for new brainiacs to raise their swords. If you weren’t able to make it in the past, let me remind you that the pub quiz is now at HQ Gwangan every Wednesday, and there’s a new format:

1000 Won Entrance Fee Per Player / Winning Team Gets The Cash!

Maximum Team Size is 5. Minimum Team Size is 1.

2 Rounds of Questions
3 Categories in Each Round
5 Questions in Each Category

Plus in between rounds, we will have a Beer Bonus round where one team can win a free pitcher of Cass or OB.

We’ll be starting the quiz at approximately 9:00, and it’ll be done before 11:00 so for those of you coming from outside of Gwangan, you can hightail it to your bus or subway to stiff over the taxi drivers–or if you want to keep drinking, nobody’s stopping you.

Following, trivia, come on down for the newest open mic in town starting around 11 p.m.

* Bone Cult (UK) *
Based in Nottingham, Bone Cult are a ‘Death-Electronica’ duo, bringing a heavier sound to their energetic live set. Their music appeals to fans of The Prodigy, Daft Punk and Basement Jaxx. Using a combination of distinctive masks and an incredible light show, their set is a unique experience. Having released their third EP in 2017, Bone Cult have toured across 9 countries in Europe and the UK, with dates already confirmed for South-East Asia in 2018.

As of 2017 the band have been included on slots at Dot to Dot Festival, Hockley Hustle, Rock City and Rough Trade, leading to a series of support slot bookings for high-profile acts including Sleaford Mods, Slaves and The Qemists.

Having been scouted whilst performing at the FOCUS Wales festival, the band is set to play at Zandari Festa 2018.

* Neutral Libido 뉴트럴리비도는 *
Bringing a complex urban electro vibe layered with sweet melodies and analog bass and guitar sounds, Neutral Libido are consummate performers with one album, 2016’s “Stars of Innerside” under their belt.
2016년 1집 ‘Stars of Innerside’ 발표하고 전국 곳곳에 공연을 하고 있다
합리적이지 못한 내면의 복합성을 도시적인 일렉트로닉 사운드에 달콤한 멜로디, 시적인 가사 그리고 아날로그적인 기타와 베이스를 얹혀 기존 일렉트로닉 뮤직과는 다른 뉴트럴리비도만의 독특한 감성을 들을 수 있다
그들의 음악을 듣고 있으면 현재의 자신의 모습과 다른 자아를 느끼게 되는 비대칭 시공간 흐름을 경험할 것이다
