BUSAN, South Korea — Tensions may be rising on the peninsula (so they say), but don’t let that stop you from getting out of the house this weekend.
A great night of music headlined by Outlier’s CD release party tops our Saturday choices. A bachelor/bachelorette auction, football, more great music and some great photo exhibitions round things out, but there’s a whole lot more in store in what looks to be an overcast weekend in the city.
