Haps Weekend Picks December 7,8,9


BUSAN, South Korea — The cold has hit most of the peninsula, but, luckily, Busan was spared from the snow that hit the central and northern regions this week.

The new issue of Haps is hot off the presses to ring in this weekend with our ‘Hot Spots to Hit This Winter’ feature, as well as plenty of great articles in what we think is the best issue yet. Come pick up a copy at the Haps Launch Party Friday night at Sharky’s if you can, but if you can’t, there’s a lot of action going on this weekend with the finals of the Battle of the Bands, a free theater show, a Zumba fundraiser and a great concert planned for wherever you may be.

You can check out the Haps Calendar for everything going on around the area. Enjoy!

Battle of the Bands Final @ Vinyl Underground – The preliminaries are done and it’s time to get down to business, with the best of the bands going head-to-head in the finals. Saturday, 10 p.m., Vinyl Underground, Kyungsung.

Lady Winchester and the Steaming Heads @ Soul Trane – Possibly the most peculiar band in Korea, combining gypsy punk with rockabilly, blues, ska, sweat, naked bits, fireworks and the kitchen sink. The band has only been around since April, but has already notched up two battle of the bands finals and an impressive set of original songs, with a few covers thrown in for good measure. Saturday, 10 p.m., Soul Trane, PNU.
