Words Only+51 featuring Emily Yoon @ Home Bistro and Cafe

Words Only+51 featuring Emily Yoon @ Home Bistro and Cafe

A very special Words Only+51 is set on December 28th, 8 p.m., at the Home Bistro in Haeundae.

Busan native Emily Yoon is in town for a very short time for the holidays so we are going to feature her and celebrate the release of her new book “A Cruelty Special To Our Species” by Ecco/Harper Collins Publishers. Emily performed at Poetry Plus+42 in September of 2015 and she is currently one of the most vital and fastest rising voices in American poetry. Here is a review of her stunning debut collection that was published in the New York Times.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/13/books/review/cruelty-special-to-our-species-emily-jungmin-yoon.html

*Please arrive as early as possible for this event.

-Leah Barbata will be kicking things off for us with a short set of charming ukulele based songs. Leah has quickly become one of Busan’s most popular performers. So, don’t miss out!

-Julia Gardner (poetry) and Anthony Velasquez (lyric narrative) will both be performing as supporting features for this event. Julia has become a regular to the open mic scene and her poems are always engaging. Anthony has recently completed his MFA and was recently published in the esteemed Sierra Nevada Review.

*Unfortunately, due to time constraints, we will not be able to retain our regular open mic section. We will have a curated night and will have five or six other performers from our Busan literary community participate in five minute sections. Thank you for your understanding.

*Afterwards, we will be treated to the wondrous jazz guitar and trumpet stylings of Robert Coates and Gordon Bazali.

FULL BIO for Emily:

Emily Jungmin Yoon is the author of Ordinary Misfortunes (Tupelo Press, 2017), winner of the Sunken Garden Chapbook Prize, selected by Maggie Smith. Her first full-length collection, A Cruelty Special to Our Species, is forthcoming from Ecco in 2018. Born in Busan, Republic of Korea, Yoon earned her BA in English and communication at the University of Pennsylvania and her MFA in creative writing at New York University, where she served as an award editor for the Washington Square Review and received a Starworks Fellowship. Her poems and translations have appeared or are forthcoming in the New Yorker, Poetry magazine, Columbia Journal Online, Pinwheel, and elsewhere. She is the poetry editor for The Margins, the literary magazine of the Asian American Writers’ Workshop, and is pursuing a PhD in Korean literature in the Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago. In 2017, Yoon was a recipient of the Ruth Lilly and Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Poetry Fellowship from the Poetry Foundation.

*Home Bistro is a wonderful new addition to our cafe and pub establishments. It has a cozy and modern atmosphere with a full bar and a small menu of vegan cuisine.

*This will be the 110th event under the Poetry Plus+ umbrella dating back to November 11, 2000. Previously, there have been 47 Poetry Plus+ events, 12 Liquid Arts Open Stage events, and 50 Words Only events. Poetry Plus is a curated night of entertainment which includes poetry, storytelling, music, comedy, film, theater, visual art, dance and other genre-bending performances. Liquid Arts Open Stage is similar to Poetry Plus in scope yet it is open to all comers and improvised on the spot that night. Words Only is a night of purely literary and spoken word arts with a little music after the event concludes.

*Programming Note: The Words Only event scheduled for January 12 at Ovantgarde in the KSU area will now shift its focus and be presented as Liquid Arts Open Stage+13. So, please come on out that night as well. It will be our last event until March 2nd as the Busan community at-large breaks for winter vacation and warmer climes.

New Year’s Eve Sunrise Party at HQ Gwangan @ HQ Gwangan
Dec 31 2018 @ 7:00 pm – Jan 1 2019 @ 10:00 am
New Year's Eve Sunrise Party at HQ Gwangan @ HQ Gwangan
Let’s bid a fond (or maybe unfond depending on your outlook) to 2018 and look forward to 2019 at HQ Gwangan on Monday, December 31st. Just like we always do, we’ll keep the bar going until the sun rises and then some, and of course, we’ve got a ton of drink and food specials throughout the night, including:

DRINKS

25,000 Bottles of Champagne

From open until 1:00 AM–

3000 Won Tequila Shots
4000 Won Glasses of Red/White Wine
5000 Won Jameson Cocktails

FOOD

TBA

And if those drink specials aren’t enough to push you over the edge, at midnight, we are giving everyone who’s there to ring in the new year a free champagne toast! And for those of you who make it to sunrise–approximately 7:00 AM–we’ll have a free raffle–everyone who is still alive and semi-conscious at the bar at sunrise will get a raffle ticket. We’ll be raffling off a free bottle of Jameson!

Hope to see you on the 31st! And then I’m taking January off from the booze… okay, maybe the first week of January… possibly the first night of January… we’ll see how it turns out.

The 2019 Mardi Gras Party at HQ Gwangan @ HQ Gwangan

In lieu of Fat Tuesday being a work day, HQ Gwangan is putting together its massive annual Mardi Gras parrrrrty for Saturday, March 2nd. Here’s what’s on the agenda:

CAJUN FOOD SPECIALS!

HQ’s super-chefs have put together a spread of Cajun classics that are otherwise hard to come by in this town–

Blackened Catfish Po’ Boys
Blackened Catfish Platters
Blackened Shrimp Po’ Boys
Blackened Shrimp Platters
Blackened Chicken Po’ Boys
Blackened Chicken Platters

Red Beans & Rice

All Po’ Boy Sandwiches come with boiled corn. All Platters come with corn, fried okra, and red beans & rice.

PROPER NEW ORLEANS COCKTAILS!

For one night only, we will be serving up two great New Orleans specialties at great prices, including:

Real Hurricanes (we’re importing the proper mix from the States)
Cajun Lemonade (with homemade Pimm’s)

And we will have special Purple/Gold/Green Jello Shots–2 for 4000!

THE ANNUAL KING AND QUEEN OF MARDI GRAS CONTEST!

Okay… And I am not saying this lightly… this might be our best contest ever. Any time you buy any of the New Orleans cocktail/food specials or a Galmegi craft beer, you will receive a bead necklace. You should collect these throughout the night. At 1:00 AM, we will have all of you come up to show your beads. The man with the most beads will be crowned King of Mardi Gras, and the woman with the most beads will be crowned Queen of Mardi Gras. What does this get you?

Well, for the ENTIRE MONTH OF MARCH, both the King and Queen get TEN FREE SHOTS A WEEK if they drop in at HQ Gwangan**. They can drink them all by their lonesome, or they can share with friends or even strangers–but you are getting TEN FREE SHOTS A WEEK FOR A WHOLE STINKIN’ MONTH (40 SHOTS IN TOTAL)!!!

So yeah, that’s a pretty solid prize, and you will forever be known as the Mardi Gras King/Queen!

**THE TEN FREE SHOTS ARE ONLY AVAILABLE ON THURSDAY-SATURDAY OF EACH WEEK–so March 7-9, 14-16, 21-23, and 28-30**

PLUS PROPER NEW ORLEANS TUNES ALL NIGHT LONG–OR UNTIL WE ALL GET SICK OF IT!

Liquid Arts Open Stage+14 (w/ the Variable Ensemble) @ Ovantgarde

Liquid Arts Open Stage+14 (w/ the Variable Ensemble) @ Ovantgarde

Liquid Arts Open Stage Open Stage will return on Saturday March 2nd at 8:00pm at the Ovantgarde in the Kyungsung University area. We are solidly into 2019 and it’s time to bring the best of our spirits together for another night of performances, fun, and camaraderie.

This will be our 112th event since 2000. We have held 51 Words Only events and 47 Poetry Plus events.

What is the Liquid Arts Open Stage?

Well, it’s an evening of performances across whatever artistic endeavors performers wish to contribute: spoken word and storytelling, comedy, music, theater, improv, dance, and whatever mish-mash that can be dreamed up. Here is a partial list of how to approach this event and what we hope to attract:

-Aspiring performers who have very little or no stage experience.

-Performers who are new to Korea but who have not had a chance to be on stage & introduce their talents to the community.

-Veteran Busan performers who are unable to attend the other weeknight open mics in Busan.

-Veteran performers seeking to present raw material or branch out into other genres.

-Performers looking to create collaborative work either within a particular discipline like co-songwriting or across disciplines like theater & music or poetry & music or music & dance.

-Theater folks can do original or classic scenes, with or without scripts, rehearsed or not, whatever.

We do sign ups at the event and time allotment will be determined once we see how many folks want to perform.

Old Skool Directions: KSU is stop 212 on the Green Line. Go up & out exit 3. Walk straight past Starbucks. Take the first right. Go 1 block. Turn right. Turn right into the first little alley. It’s on the left. Go down the steps.

More details about this event are forthcoming.

Liquid Arts+15 (feat: Yo Soul Singer Whitney Sol w/ Pounamu) @ Ovantgarde

Liquid Arts Open Stage Open Stage will return on Saturday April 13th at 8:00pm at the Ovantgarde in the Kyungsung University area. Let your spring fever lead you here for another night of performances across any & all art mediums: poetry, words & all kinds of stories to musical acts, short films & other kinds of creative bits, brought to the stage by folks right out of the crowd.

For Liquid Arts+15, we are thrilled to be featuring another Seoul based artist: Yo Soul Singer Whitney Sol with Pounamu accompanying on acoustic guitar. They will be playing the opening set beginning promptly at 8pm. So, come on out with your usual Busan love, lend your ears, & link up with these two artists.

My cohost for Liquid Arts+15 will be the wonderfully talented and super cool Leah Barbata.

This will be our 113th event since 2000. We have held 51 Words Only events and 47 Poetry Plus events.

What is the Liquid Arts Open Stage?

Well, it’s an evening of performances across whatever artistic endeavors performers wish to contribute: spoken word and storytelling, comedy, music, theater, improv, dance, and whatever mish-mash that can be dreamed up. Here is a partial list of how to approach this event and what we hope to attract:

-Aspiring performers who have very little or no stage experience.

-Performers who are new to Korea but who have not had a chance to be on stage & introduce their talents to the community.

-Veteran Busan performers who are unable to attend the other weeknight open mics in Busan.

-Veteran performers seeking to present raw material or branch out into other genres.

-Performers looking to create collaborative work either within a particular discipline like co-songwriting or across disciplines like theater & music or poetry & music or music & dance.

-Theater folks can do original or classic scenes, with or without scripts, rehearsed or not, whatever.

We do sign ups at the event and time allotment will be determined once we see how many folks want to perform.

Old Skool Directions: KSU is stop 212 on the Green Line. Go up & out exit 3. Walk straight past Starbucks. Take the first right. Go 1 block. Turn right. Turn right into the first little alley. It’s on the left. Go down the steps.

Liquid Arts+16: A Triple Feature! @ Ovantgarde

Liquid Arts+16: A Triple Feature! @ Ovantgarde

Liquid Arts Open Stage Open Stage will return on Saturday May 4th at 8:00pm at the Ovantgarde in the Kyungsung University area. Let your spring fever lead you here for another night of performances across any & all art mediums: poetry, words & all kinds of stories to musical acts, short films & other kinds of creative bits, brought to the stage by folks right out of the crowd. For Liquid Arts+16, we have three awesome and cutting edge features for you:

Bathing Belles: A two piece, soulful, dreamy, chilltronica band currently based out of Busan. Don’t miss them!

Jessica Lakritz is on Instagram as Skin on Sundays: She has this to say: Skin on Sundays combines two worlds—the sensual physical world of the human body and the expansive and spacious interior world of poetry. The poems are inspired by whom they are written on, often focusing on issues that can be of service to the soul. Vulnerability, honesty, to portray people as they are through both the photo and the poem that is written on them. This is physiopoetry, making art, making connections, and making waves.

Cindi L’Abbe: A longtime Busan performer, Cindi’s work can encompass a broad pallet of art forms from the simple to avant-garde while involving dance, movement, film, language, and many other eclectic endeavors. This feature piece for Liquid Arts also involves significant contributions from Dani Gellerman, Jihyoung Park, and Yeon Jeong.

My cohost for Liquid Arts+16 will be Bianca Apato, a relatively new writer in our creative Busan community, who is an experienced performer overseas.

This will be our 114th event since November 11th, 2000. In addition to our Liquid Arts event, we have held 51 Words Only events and 47 Poetry Plus events.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

What is the Liquid Arts Open Stage?

Well, it’s an evening of performances across whatever artistic endeavors performers wish to contribute: spoken word and storytelling, comedy, music, theater, improv, dance, and whatever mish-mash that can be dreamed up. Here is a partial list of how to approach this event and what we hope to attract:

-Aspiring performers who have very little or no stage experience.

-Performers who are new to Korea but who have not had a chance to be on stage & introduce their talents to the community.

-Veteran Busan performers who are unable to attend the other weeknight open mics in Busan.

-Veteran performers seeking to present raw material or branch out into other genres.

-Performers looking to create collaborative work either within a particular discipline like co-songwriting or across disciplines like theater & music or poetry & music or music & dance.

-Theater folks can do original or classic scenes, with or without scripts, rehearsed or not, whatever.

We do sign ups at the event and time allotment will be determined once we see how many folks want to perform.

Old Skool Directions: KSU is stop 212 on the Green Line. Go up & out exit 3. Walk straight past Starbucks. Take the first right. Go 1 block. Turn right. Turn right into the first little alley. It’s on the left. Go down the steps.

More details about this event are forthcoming.
