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.
