No Brain , this group is among the “whose who” of Korean punk. This will be the groups third appearance at SXSW.
“A Glass Of Soju”
The Barbarettes are a lovely trio who preforms Korean and America doo whop music from the 1950 and 1960’s.
“Be My Baby” (Originally done by The Ronettes)
Asian Chairshot , whenever I hear anyone complain that rock is dead I know they are not looking over in Korea where the genre is very much alive and kicking. This group is just an example of that fact with a musically style that a fusion of all the rock style combined into one excellent package.
But there are more including set to preform so be sure to check them out as well.
