Wow, wow, wow. The local band Chairman put on tonight one of the coolest rock shows I've ever seen by any band anywhere. And very Taiwan. The tourists might not have been able to fully appreciate it, but appreciate it they still did, and the local fans, definitely. Damn! I hope it got some good coverage on the news. Ah Ji at the top of his game.

Wish you could have been there, I know you would have really enjoyed it. I bet there is some video because I saw lots of people with their phones pointed at the stage. I'll poke around on the web tonight after work and see what I can find.

What does "hiddy" mean? Is this some new kind of uber-Chinglish?

Here's a clip of one of the highlights I found on Youtube from the Chairman set at the Hohaiyan festival last night. Working late on a rush job tonight but might look around for more later.

More than enough. I can do the leg work from here.

Brilliant. And many thanks. Sort of mad old school Wu Bai with a twist.

You're as ever the richest mine on Taiwan music, Rotalsnart. Much appreciated!

Luantan Ascent (亂彈阿翔) did a set right before Chairmen that would be worth checking out too! By the way are you headed back this way any time soon?

Can anyone explain the spelling? Is "Hohaiyan" Taiwanese or something?
