Puppy Love: Alt Rock Legends Celebrate Two Decades of Modern Dog

Update: This event has been postponed to March 18 in light of the death of His Late Majesty King Bhumibol

BANGKOK — The 4,000 square meters of Impact Arena will be packed with ‘90s kids rocking, jumping and screaming along to their all-time favorites later this year.

Twenty years after they pioneered electronic sound and paved the way for a generation of rock stars, Modern Dog will celebrate their 22nd anniversary with what they say is their biggest concert ever.

Famous for songs such as “Busaba” (Flower), “Gorn” (Before), “Ta Sawang” (Eyes Open) and more, the fathers of Thai alternative rock released their first album in 1994, two years after placing first in what was a big annual music contest sponsored by Coca-Cola.

The band got off to a big start when they performed as the opening act for one of their biggest influences, Radiohead, in 1994 at MBK Center.

Now in their 40s, singer-songwriter Thanachai Ujjin, guitarist Maetee Noijinda and drummer Pawin Suwannacheep will release their sixth album in August, two months before the show.

The Modern Dog 22 concert will take place on March 18 at Impact Muang Thong Thani. Tickets range from 1,000 baht to 3,500 baht and are available online.
