After a month of playing coast-to-coast shows and holding showcases at SXSW and CMW, Seoulsonic 2K12 wraps up tonight in Los Angeles. This year’s line-up boasted post-modern rock band 3rd Line Butterfly, the ever-electrifying Yellow Monsters trio, and Korea’s legendary punk pioneers, Crying Nut.
Following in the footsteps of Idiotape, Galaxy Express, and Vidulgi Ooyoo last spring, this year’s Seoulsonic acts jumped in feet first, undeniably stoked for their first time touring the US and Canada. Kicking off the evening with moody guitars and smoky vocals was 3rd Line Butterfly, followed by Yellow Monsters, who provided a blazing change of pace with their dizzying nonstop set of fan favorites. Crying Nut, now going 15 years strong, closed out the show, giving the crowd a high-voltage taste of Korean punk royalty.
