I don’t need to tell you that it’s hot out there! We got some things you can do to beat the heat. Let’s see what’s happening this weekend.
Thursday, July 20th
I can name that tune in three notes! Tonight, Speakeasy will debut a new quiz style game based on the popular game show, Name That Tune! Participants will hear 20-30 seconds of a song, and all you have to do is guess what it is. If you get five in a row, you win a free drink. It also costs you nothing to enter as well. Name That Tune will start around 10, but you can get there early and enjoy the great drinks that Speakeasy is known for. For more info about tonight, please go to the Facebook event page here.

Friday night means it’s time for Open Mic night at Loft 28! Their Open Mic night takes place weekly, and it’s another great chance to see your favorite locals play in Gwangju. If you want to perform, all you have to do is come and sign up. The only thing you need to bring is your own instrument-Loft provides the rest. Need another reason to perform? How about participants receive one free drink! Make sure you also try some of the delicious, home cooked food that’s served at Loft 28. For more info about Loft’s Open Mic Night, please go to their Facebook page.
You already know that it’s hot outside, so Tequilaz has a way for you to cool down tonight. They’ll be having a bottomless draft beer special for 12,000 won from 9 p.m. to midnight. For more details, check their Facebook page. Don’t forget to order some tasty Mexican food to wash down those bottomless drafts with.
After you enjoy some beers at Tequilaz, head on over to Speakeasy for another edition of Gwangju Live. Tonight, John Howard will be performing. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing John play, and he always puts on a good show. Music will begin around 10:30 p.m., and if you need more info about the show, please go to Speakeasy’s Facebook page.

For directions to the GIC, please click on the link for their website. For more details about the class, please check out the Facebook event page. This weekend’s class will be lead by guest instructor Lisa Casaus. Enjoy her artwork above this entry!
Tonight at Loft 28 they will have a performance by a band called Of Cats and Men. The name alone is very intriguing! This show will be held to celebrate the birthday (and sadly a going away) of a local Gwangju resident. The show begins at 11 p.m., but get there early to enjoy some of the great cocktails that Loft has to offer. For more info about the show, please go to their Facebook page.
