Kimchibilly Night to see the Rock Tigers.
The term Kimchibilly oriinated from Canadian fans of the Rock Tigers in 2008, according the band’s vocalist/song writer Velvet Geena.
That same year the Rock Tigers released their EP "Taste the Kimchibilly" (the term's first public print exposure) and, more importantly, "Kimchibilly Night" was launched at DGBD.
Catch the Rock Tigers at DGBD in Hongdae.
