Spring Scream 2012

Post your upcoming Kaohsiung and southern Taiwan events here!
Forum rules
This forum is for the listing, promotion, and discussion of the specifics of events in Kaohsiung and southern Taiwan. Please include a date in your title (e.g. 3/25) and - in the post - an address in English if possible. If you are providing the information in the form of an online photograph/flyer/poster, it is also advisable to provide the essential details in text as well, so as to facilitate ease of cut-and-paste.

As we wish to encourage people to post their events here, negative commentary isn't welcome in the Events forums. You are, however, more than welcome to post the same debate-encouraging negative criticism of bands, artists, etc. in the Arts & Entertainment or other appropriate forums.

Please PM the Moderators or Admin if you have any concerns or queries.

I can somehow imagine a Taiwanese Kevin Bacon but the image of a Taiwanese John Lithgow is somehow elusive.

Free lollipop to anyone who has an inkling what this poster's first post is on about....

Thank you google, for being able to reveal a connection for almost anything, except why anyone would be able to recall this connection...

Footloose (1984)
Stars:Kevin Bacon, Lori Singer and John Lithgow
A city boy comes to a small town where rock music and dancing have been banned.

I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.

Anyway, as of now, the promoters down in Kending have managed to sway the local authorities that things are ok. but that situation is very fluid.

And Rock-a-fella...Spring Scream is Taiwan's largest outdoor music festival with 8 stages, 200 bands, and 35 djs over the tomb sweeping holiday at the Lighthouse in Kending.

Since so many people go down to the dirty south, there are tons of parties everywhere that weekend.

Nice, sounds like fun... though when you call it that it just makes ya want to go there to check out the taiwanese hicks :) ... unless there is no such thing and taiwanese moonshine does not exist (which would sadden my heart just a little bit).

I believe kaoliang to be the Taiwanese equivalent to Mad Dog 20/20. Available in every convenience store and each part of Taiwan has their own special kind. It's the You have to drink it once thing...
