Event Type:

This Saturday, December 9th, we've got an absolutely killer night of rock and roll featuring a huge band from Seoul and one of our favorite groups from Busan--and it's CHEAP, so you can save your money for getting me a Christmas present in a few weeks! Here's the lineup:


Since forming in early 2009, ...Whatever That Means has built a reputation as a hard working DIY band and was described by Alternative Press as, "the pop-punk face of the Korean music scene." Just a month ago, they finished in third place among 700+ bands at Indiestance, a huge Korean independent music competition, they just got back from a Japan tour, and they've just released a split EP with long-running Japanese skate punk band The Skippers... they've had a great year, and we're finally getting them back in Busan, so hope y'all can make it out. Check out their stuff at

Barbie Dolls are three guys who can stomp their way through a garage rock anthem and melt heads and hearts in the process. They might hold the title as the band that has played HQ the most times, but it's been a while so I'm sure they've got new tricks up their sleeves.

This show is ONLY 5000 Won, and we're giving you a free Lemon Drop shot with that cover. 100% of the money goes to the bands performing! Bar is open at 7:00, and the music will start at 10:00 sharp!
