Hockey Players and Hipsters plan to take the Street for HBC Music Event. – (I mean no feckin’ way, but why the feck not?)

By Mizaru


You see things; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not?’George Bernard Shaw—Irish Socialist and Dramatist.

Friday Night October 7 from 9 p.m. on and recommencing SaIndigoturday October 8 from 1 p.m. till late, the HBC benefit night and the HBC Happy Music Night are on. The traditional HBC Fest has been shuttered (Read Here) but expats are expats and business is business so the show must go on. Yet is there something in the wind? Does the world rotate through coincidences or have the street protests in Cairo and Morocco set a spark for the “Occupy Wall Street”movement. And has the wind of change and protest blown all the way over to Haebangchon, Seoul? The reasons for the official cancelling of  “The HBC Music Fest” are myriad and not easy to uncover but with the cancellation, perhaps all of the guitar players in HBC can remember the words of Bob Dylan, “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.”

On that weekend when the hood clutters up with rubberneckers, day-trippers and open-mike poets with no talent, it can actually mean something. There is one stroke of organizational genius that will make this another HBC landmark occasion: Turn it into a PROTEST EVENT. Occupy the main drag of Haebangchon. Take the boulevard of Facebook updates and turn it into ‘Liberation Row.’ I mean maybe the Brooklyn Bridge can’t be took so why not take the overpass into Itaewon? What to protest: That you are a rising star in the world and no one knows it, of course!  I mean what is your net worth if only one percent of the people you know believes that you are somebody. Excluding  friends and family who have to pander to you there is another 90% of people in your world who don’t believe you are anything at all! They won’t follow you on Twitter; so what’s to be done about them?  You have to show them. Get yourself camera ready, get on Haebangchon’s one main street and start primal screaming that you have worth.

What to scream?

Here are some tag lines of protest from Cairo andNew York:

“The Revoloution is in Tahir. No Sleeping in Bed.”

“God Reigns over the Crisis, and that man has the mind of a shoe.”


“Give a Damn. Make Banks Pay!”

“Wall Street Belongs to US. Bring your Tent!”


If this doesn’t fit your personal idea of revolution, here are some tag lines you can see on the dirty boulevard in HBC:
