Korean bands at Urban Nomad? Oh yes!

Three Korean bands will be among the 40 musical acts at this year’s Urban Nomad Freakout Festival, to be held in Taipei April 10-12. The bands are SaaWee, an avant-garde duo of traditional percussion and violin, scuzz blues band Billy Carter, and psychedelic punk group Ego Function Error. Korea has a fantastic, thriving indie music scene, similar in many ways to Taiwan’s, but relatively unknown here. Inviting these three bands to Urban Nomad is an effort to bring some kickass music to our amazing audience, and second to help build up connections between Taiwanese indie music and the awesome stuff happening in Korea. They’re less then a two-hour flight away. There’s no reason we should be strangers. So here are three bands to look forward to at Urban Nomad 2020.

(中文) 【座談紀錄】紅色青春記憶的再現與實驗

(中文) 今天應該來談論紅色青春記憶的再現與實驗。《入戲》這部紀錄片的起源就是葉京導演為了拍攝《記得少年這首歌》而產生的電影。從紅色記憶來談,台灣觀眾可能不太熟悉葉京導演,他此前有一部電視劇《與青春有關的日子》,2006年在中國有一定的影響力,在上映前還特別加入1969這個年代的記憶。台灣觀眾可能不太認識葉京導演,但是他邀請到兩位中國電影圈為人熟知的王朔和馮小剛作為電影製作。
