TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The 2019 Urban Nomad Freakout Music Fest kicked off today (Saturday, April 13) with a multitude of performances across two music stages and a special circus arena.
Hidden near the base of Taipei’s Tiger Mountain, the grounds of an old Taoist temple hold host to an eclectic mix of art, rock, acrobatics and circus tricks.
Local swing band The Flat Fives opened the event, crooning to classic rhythm and blues numbers from the 40s, 50s and 60s on the main stage. First to perform in the intimate temple arena was Canadian-born multi instrumentalist and solo artist Radio Rose, who delivered a charismatic and sincere piano and vocal performance. [FULL STORY]
