Melodramas Play Apocalypse Now

January 30, 2010

We got an interesting notification in our inboxes from an up-and-coming U.K. band called Melodramas. Matt Woolway from the band tells us they’ll be playing Apocalypse Now on February 4. The show falls on the cusp of Melodramas’ reign as CMJ magazine’s Band of the Week. Melodramas released their debut EP, Epone, last year before heading out in October to play Kuwait and Australia and heading back to support The New York Dolls at their show at Talking Heads in Southampton. They’ll be headlining the gig in HCM City, supported by local rock acts Unlimited and Microwave. The show kicks off at 8pm.

You can check out Melodramas before they hit Saigon on their MySpace page.

The event is being organised by Tiger Beer’s cross-cultural creative platform, Tiger Translate. The initiative highlights Asia’s brightest creatives and facilitates collaboration with Western partners through a series of events, exhibitions and publications. Tiger Translate hosted My Chemical Romance in HCM City back in January 2008.
