10 Plays in Busan
BUSAN, South Korea - East meets East. Korean girl, Itta and her Japanese boyfriend, Marqido, collectively known as "10," are back for another gig before a brief tour of America in April.
Half of you will say they are 'weird,' and the other half will tell their friends. The frontier of 'cutting edge' has long been home to interesting characters and these two are surely that.
On the eve of an American tour that kicks off in Brooklyn the 4th of April, they will step back into The Basement this Wednesday the 25th. "10" will then head to the States for a couple of weeks, closing out a tour of the American arthouse scene with a show in Portland. They have also toured Asia and Europe since forming in 2005.
Not to read too much into it, well, ok, I will --it is an interesting pairing. Girl meets boy, and fall in love within a shared sound of birthright-traditional enemies. Is a marriage on Dokdo in the offings?
I better stop there.
Definitely check em' out --and the price (free) is right.
