North Korea To Hold Its 'First Ever DJ Show' In August

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.

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.
