Liquid Arts+17 @ Ovantgarde

Liquid Arts Open Stage Open Stage will return on Saturday June 29th at 8:00pm at the Ovantgarde in the Kyungsung University area. We will offer up 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+17, we are thrilled to welcome back the Variable Ensemble. They will be playing a special opening set beginning promptly at 8pm. So, come on out with your usual Busan love, lend your ears.

My cohost for Liquid Arts+16 will be local literary giant Anthony Velasquez.

This will be our 116th event since 2000. We have held 52 Words Only events and 47 Poetry Plus events in addition to our Liquid Arts event.

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.

As always- there’s no pressure to dress up or drag it up- heroes and villains take many forms- so feel free to interpret that theme any way you choose.

HQ Gwangan Open Mic Night @ HQ Gwangan

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.
