Pop culture, entertainment & all things Fresno

Hear this: Galaxy Express

167669_188257091203180_1632904_nForget Psy and “Gangnam Style” and whatever YouTube has shown us about South Korean pop music. Galaxy Express destroys all that nonsense with high-octane kick-out-the-jams punk-rock that’s equal parts sound and fury (and fun).

A South Korean punk band you say? I say yes.

The band is one of (if not the) country’s top indie-acts and is currently on a 26-stop U.S. tour through 14 states. They’ll be in Fresno on Thursday, playing Audie’s Olympic Tavern with InsideTheSun, Murder Park and It’ll Grow Back.

I had some email correspondence with guitarist Jonghyun Park.
