According to Chinese publication City Weekend, on Monday the 13th of August a Pyongyang karaoke bar (capacity: 100) will play host to “DJ BO” from Shanghai. The organisers claim its the first ever “DJ Party” the Hermit State has ever seen.
Here’s the flyer:
DJ BO (aka Brian Offenther) is planning to play a variety of “retro rock ‘n’ roll”, he tells City Weekend. “I heard the Kim family loves Eric Clapton, so I promise to play something for them.”
However, we’re not so sure its the first ever DJ party — in 2011 a Guardian writer described a trip to one of the Pyongyang’s “only nightclub”, the Taedong Diplo, where the DJ only has one CD.
