MIB Korea Festival 4

At last weekends Flushing’s Korean Chuseok Festival the Kpop band M.I.B closed out the show. Before the performance, I was all “Eh, M.I.B, run of the mill, mid-level Kpop band”.

When I left the performance? I was all “Hey, why haven’t I listened to these guys before?”

M.I.B is not the usual Kpop band, as in they have a slightly harder sound, which is not that pop.

Which means their sound is hits me in my wheel house.

It also makes me understand why they aren’t quite as…well known(?) as others. I actually did recognize one of their songs, and looking back, it turns out I had done it as a Musical Monday.

In the post, I wasn’t sure if I liked it. After hearing them perform it live? Yep, I fallen on the side of “That song is awesome!”

Sometimes seeing a band in person can have that effect on you.

And I got to see them for free! This is not bragging, this is me saying, Kpop tickets are pretty expensive.

Someone asked me what they sang, unfortunately, since I didn’t know the band, I had no idea. But luckily, not only did a Youtuber TheEpikNasties record the entire performance, they also put the set list in. (Bounce, G.D.M, Money In the Building, Lets Talk About You, Men In Black/Dash)

Check out the performance here, keep your eye out for the cute old man who starts dancing at about the 2 minute mark.
