Last night (thank god it was beautiful weather because today has been pouring down rain all night) was the Rock in Taichung with me Music Festival.
It is a free event at a lovely park. This event is a weekend long event of bands preforming on 1/4 stages around the park. They also have many local vendors, a lot of street food and popular NGO’s around the area for those who don’t enjoy the type of music playing. I was unable to attend Friday and Saturday due to other plans. I was sad because P!SCO a band I have seen before and really enjoyed played on Saturday night. (below is a song by P!SCO)
but Sunday night was awesome. We arrived about 6.. and not knowing what to expect we walked up to one of the smaller stages. It looked like a battle of the bands stage fro highschool haha. anyway. Proceeding onto the main stage I was really impressed with the first act I saw. They are from Japan called Hysteric Lolita. An all girls band. They are pretty “poppy” but overall I loved them. The bassist from the band was awesome and was so fun to watch.
Then we went to get food. We had a dinner of chicken pie and fried mushrooms with fresh watermelon juice! YUM!
The next and last band we saw was wonderful. Their music is a little Buddhist based with a cool flute and gong thing. They are called ZenKwun and they are a Taiwan band based out of Taoyuan.
I also scored some free Taiwan political stickers which are pretty rad!!!
