I have now learned that in Korea, that when they say doors open at 6pm and even with 5 support bands the gig will be over by 10.30pm. So when we, foreign music lovers rock on up at 10pm not even expecting the support to be about 3 bands in but really, would only get 3 songs and be gagging for more.
However, it was the best $15, 15 minute concert I have ever seen. The first thought that came to mind when I heard GoGo Star was elements of the now dispersed KOTAC, So so modern and some Teen Wolf but in Korean. Maybe they are better live than on record? But then still awesome. So much energy, heat and craziness in the crowd. I even had to break out my togs.
The crowd screamed "INCORE" and the band obliged, but when finished - fans were literally lying on the ground exhausted and drenched in sweat from all the dancing.
New favourite song is this:
It takes a while to get into it but so AWESOME!
And the best part was when after dancing on the stage with the band, one young Korean girl fell backwards into the crowd who weren't paying attention and dispersed leaving her hit the ground. Really reminded me of that scene in Mean Girls. (She was ok, so it's fine to laugh.)
Kayla! Photos! Yay!
