Wow. Life really can be ironic sometimes!
Yesterday, when I wrote about music – and also asked my students to write about their favourite music too – I had absolutely no idea that this weekend was to see the annual Gwangju Indie Music Festival, but it is actually this weekend, and it’s starting tonight!
A friend just messaged me about it. I am not going to be able to go to much of it at all, so, I hope my friends and students all go and enjoy it a lot. I know there is going to be some great local music playing!

Speaking of local music and current times, I was interested to see just yesterday that the singer/songwriter/guitarist from Shihad, a band I mentioned yesterday from my home town of Wellington, is releasing a new album of songs very soon. He just released a video of one track which includes many great names in pop and rock music from Aotearoa – New Zealand. It sounds like fun!
