Taiwanese punks have organized an event to support Wuhan punks. The event is being held this Friday at a bar in Taipei called 龍亭 in Taipei.
Scream For The City – A Night In Support of Wuhan / Scream For the City！為武漢加油之夜
Organized by Trapped Citizen 愁城
13 March 2020, 7PM
台北市中山區北安路518巷14弄17號, 10491 台北市 No. 17, Alley 14, Lane 518, Beian Road, Zhongshan District, Taipei
According to the post on the event page, and translated by Nathanel Amar who first let us know about this cool event, Chinese punk rock legends SMZB had rolled through Taiwan a couple of years ago and upon taking the stage, vocalist Wu Wei shared the following words when introducing the song 大武漢 :
“This song is dedicated to you all, I hope that you can come visit us in Wuhan when you have the time!”
Who would’ve known the horror that the citizens of Wuhan would be enduring a few years later. These past few months we have all seen videos smuggled out of the country of the citizens doing whatever they can. All of this caused by an inept and idiotic Chinese government that are more interested in patting themselves on the back instead of facing and admitting their mistakes and apologizing to the people of the Wuhan and the country as a whole.
The Taiwanese punk collective Trapped Citizen has organized an event that will include bands covering music by Wuhan punk acts, a DJ and a LIVE video streaming with the members of SMZB to discuss the current situation in Wuhan.
This whole event is Taiwanese punks supporting their Wuhan punk rock family.
