Korindie Berlin Update Week #3 (Final)

So, I’m back in Korea. I left Berlin, all the beer, the 20C day time temperatures, and all the cheese I can fit into my lederhosen (yes, yes, they’re from Bavaria. Just let me have this one)  for a wedding in Istanbul before coming back to quite possibly the worst summer I’ve ever spent in Korea. Yes, yes, obligatory comment about how I really like Korea and there are so many good things, but fuck summer in Korea. Korean July and August, you’re dead to me. Dead.

But, I, as usual, digress, my last week in Berlin, Dörte went all out and got me into the By The Lake Festival, showcasing bands from like all over everywhere, on a small lake not that far from my apartment. Super fun. Super convenient. It was really good to hear a bunch of different stuff, but the highlight of the thing was seeing King Khan. Apparently they had a tour go south in Korea a few years back, but let me tell you, they were on point.

Whatever, I am too busy melting in the hot hot Korean sun to write more. Let me just get your foot in the door. If you think they might sound good, then click the link. Clicking is fun right?
