Live Music in Seoul - Hongdae, Club Spot (25/10/2014)

Last Saturday I finally made it out to another gig. I have not been in a very long time. It was the last event at one of the punk venue staples in Seoul - Club Spot. I've been there a couple of time before so I really wanted to go to this last show before they closed the doors for good.

The event was 'Still Alive VI: The Death of Club Spot' and was a Halloween inspired show. They had a huge line up starting from 6pm. I got there a bit late about 8.45pm I think so I missed the first few. I arrived about halfway through Burning Hepburn's set. They weren't bad, very peppy sounding. Whatever That Means... were pretty good. There were a lot of bands on, some of them I was not sure who they were.  The last two were the best of course, they are the headliners - Rux who I have seen before. They have a great sound. The last band was Crying Nut. They are one of the oldest and most successful alternative bands in the Korean music scene. 

I had a really great time, everyone is very friendly at these events. I didn't know that many people but ended up meeting lots. Sad that a venue that has supported the underground punk scene for many years has to close but nothing is forever and it had a good run. 


  1. Superb live music event!! This was really an outstanding event. You know last week I attended a similar music event at famous live music bar nyc and enjoyed a lot. Now I am thinking to host a music party on my birthday.

  2. Wow, I am so glad to know about this Live Music event in Seoul. Pretty soon I am going to visit Korea and would live to attend folk live music events over there. Anyway, tomorrow is a grand music NYE party at domestic venues San Francisco and I am going there with my friends. If you are also interested you can buy on the spot tickets
