Who's Your Daddy?
What Is “Dad Rock?”
We wonder if you know the meaning of “dad rock.” You might have heard about it before, or maybe not. Anyway, according to what our friend abroad found at Urban Dictionary (www.urbandictionary.com), this is what we have summed out about this concept:
1. Classic rock you first heard from your dad’s old record collection.
2. The standard set of albums that every boomer likes. Boomers try to get younguns to listen to dad rock by loading up “best albums ever” lists with them. Dad rockers have no desire to listen to recent music and are stuck in the past.
3. Music can be counted as 'dad rock' if it is music that has failed to remain popular with younger generations.
Well, we’ve all heard about how “fashion is the reincarnation of the game field”. New style or old style, if it’s your first time ever listening to it, then it should be referred to a new style for you.
This June 18th, as Father’s Day is coming, we’ve prepared four bands at LOFAS to show you what exactly dad rock is by not only reading the info online, but also by listening to how cranky it is with your own ears, watching how crazy it is with your own eyes, and feeling how hot the atmosphere is with your own body. It starts at 8:00pm and lasts till late.
Don't worry, even if it's referred to as dad rock, most of the musicians who're playing it are young, as well as hot boys and girls. Believe it or not, check them out with your own eyes:

WANTED: White Ink is a gang of three well-fed, ill-bred city boys, making noise since the playground days. Away from their overseas college campuses, this alternative punk rock trio has been channeling their pent-up vigor into an ongoing series of "salacious, pointed, and infectious shows" (Live China Music, 2020) in Shanghai and beyond. Catch them live for a night of reckless fun, hectic spunk, and penetrating stares right into the depths of your rotten souls… if ever there were one.
鼠王 Rat King
RAT KING is a vicious hardcore clusterfuck pulled out of the drains of Shanghai. For fans of doing fucking dangerous shit like frying bacon while naked! Their punk-tinged riffs are sure to make anyone’s ears bleed and booty’s pop. Made of 80% Cobras, and 100% fucking awesome!
And last but not the least, if bring your own daddy to the show, then we will include a free drink with the ticket. Give a chance to show your Daddy that he can Rock! Yeah… you know what I'm saying about the daddy? Not only about the kinship, but maybe also the kinky-ship. (・ω<)
So see you at 20:00, June 18th. All the fun will happen at LOFAS!
