Performance: Bedroom States, Animal Dads, and Stay Dead (POWWOW, Noksapyeong)
The rule according to one band was simple: “Everytime we mess up, you guys drink.” Later on, admissions along the lines of “we haven’t practiced this one in years” or “we only tried this twice before” or something like that.
I didn’t have the chance to ask lots of names or details here, thanks in part to arriving late (if I got a name wrong please message and I’ll correct it!). I did hear, however, that this particular show was put together at the last minute, thanks to a drummer being back in town.
UPDATE 14 Feb 2013 3:55pm: Jenny from the blog The Ketchup War was kind enough to correct several mis-identified photos in the original post, which have now been fixed. Also, she shared some more information about the show – the drummer, who plays for both Bedroom States and Animal Dads, was back in Korea for a vacation from Taiwan. This show was to say good bye to the singer, who sings for the same two bands, and is moving back to Canada soon. The show was planned literally days before, and both bands had precisely one practice before playing together for the first time in years.
Presenting Bedroom States:
Last and certainly not least - Stay Dead:
I’ll note that I let a friend of a friend borrow the camera for some of the show – if you’re reading this Meryl, hope you enjoy
