I’m very happy that the Indie concert scene is really going more and more full-blown. That there are more and more indie bands traveling Asia for a gig is testament to that. From Norwegian folk-pop duo Kings of Convenience to Brooklyn pop, post-punk band, The Drums, the list of bands hitting the Asian continent increases continuously. The areas in Asia that have been blessed with indie concerts are Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore, Philippines concerts, South Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand.
Meanwhile, here in the US the indie scene is also thriving and I can hardly keep up with all the new group names popping up almost every week! That’s part of the fun though – discovering a band I truly love amidst the obscure, quirky names is almost like finding gold!
