This band AK47 fucking RULES. So when they asked if we could get involved with promoting their upcoming 20 year hometown showdown – we were like FUCK. YES.
Here’s more info on what’s going down on August 19:
“This year will mark the 20th anniversary of Semarang based grindcore band AK//47. Semarang On Fire and S-45 Music Club are working together to bring the Semarang underground scene a special celebration for this three piece grindcore unit. “AK//47: 20 YEARS ON THE GRIND” will take place at Gosty Lounge, Monday, Aug 19th 2019.
