If one night of partying isn’t enough to ring in the New Year, Dance Rock Taipei is doing something different and throwing a party the day after all the others.
More! 01 takes place Sunday at The Wall (這牆) with Style of Eye (real name Linus Eklow) from Sweden and BeatauCue, a DJ duo signed to the hot French label Kitsune.
The party’s organizer, Spykee Fat, real name Chin Hung-chieh (金弘杰), hopes that people will beat their hangovers and think of Monday as a holiday. “We used to get additional days off for the holidays, but this year it was cut short. So I hope that … people can give themselves an extra day. We deserve it,” said Spykee. “Besides, other countries have a pretty strong Sunday scene. This time it’s our turn.”
Spykee, dINO, MadBrain, SwingChild and Neonkidz are also on the bill.
