BANGKOK — Get a taste of Vietnamese alt-metal on Saturday courtesy of Skeleton Loves Cupcake, who are coming from Saigon for their first show abroad.
The four-piece act will show off their talents at a luxury Bangkok mall, performing their original songs (mostly bittersweet, headbanging love songs).
“We'd like to do anything we can do to bring the Southeast Asian music scene a bit closer,” wrote Dino Tarasin, one of the singing and guitar-abusing members of Bangkok’s Degaruda, who co-hosts the gig with Summer Sun Records.
So what is a Skeleton Loves Cupcake?
“It’s just a name about love,” said the guitarist Thanh Cac Nyugen. “That means everything can love each other, even a skeleton and a cupcake.”
