RocKorea, getting out of Seoul, the Tatles, and Burlesque! ^NSFW^

     I'm now smack dab in the middle of my long weekend, my three days of...full fledge breathing smiling dancing being weekend. I planned on doing lots of Seoul searching, doing me things...and so far I have been, all while being with loved ones as well.
     This Saturday I had plans to go to RocKorea, a small fesitival in Midan packed full with cover bands. Chris got some free tickets (thanks you!) and we ventured off early afternoon out of Seoul!
I met Chris and Amy over at DosTacos, a place I have yet to try and even this time around, we'll just say my stomach wasn't really feeling for anything besides liquids. >.<# Chris went with the broccoli and refried bean burrito, sans sour cream and cheese and Amy went with the fried veggie burrito, both were colorful, well portioned, and not too pricey, around 8,5000W per rito!

Gangnam station, line 2, get out exit 6 walk straight for about 5-7 minutes, Left before FRISBEE. 

    After nomming (and water guzzling) we ventured off to find a bus to Incheon airport...after much confusion, the right buses passing by us and farting buses, we enjoyed a long nap to the airport where we met with Mipa and others for another bus ride to the festival. 
     About twenty minutes from the airport, and through a lot of construction sites, we arrived at a small, middle-of-nowhere mud pit with a single stage and about thirty tends outlining a rectangle. This was no Bonnaroo! Mipa and I did some tent wandering and found some potential vegan energy stops...but, bringing something with us may have been much smarter.

     On the RocKorea site both Mipa and I read about some art tents...we found two, more like one and a half. I'll be honest, I was really hoping for some full fledge festival-like art tents...

     The first band I recall playing and actually got me moving and singing out loud were the Tatles, a Beates cover band. They were great, adorable, and got the crowd really going. Be it the Beatles, the songs, their energy...I think they got/gave four encores!

yea yea I know...bloated and huge, baggy sweatshirts and several gallons of water...leave me alone. 

     The next act, after about thirty minutes of dj mixes was the much anticipated Burlesque show. This was the first one I've ever really seen and're eyes don't leave the stage or sight of these beautiful confident women.

     If anything, this was empowering. Fabulous, sexy, and more than confident women strutting around...hell yea! 

A bit after the Burlesque act, the temperature got the best of me and I decided to venture back Seoul side...

Saturday was a lovely day, thank you crew, Chris, and Mipa ^^*!~
