Drinking Boys and Girls Choir
Drinking Boys and Girls Choir (DBGC) are a three-piece punk band from Daegu, South Korea. Members consist of MJ on Drums, Meena on Bass, and Megan on Guitar. Inspired by Daegu’s 90s-00s hardcore punk/indie-rock scene before it moved to Seoul, vowing not to move to the capital and preferring to nurture a sustainable local scene.
In 2017, MJ suffered a serious motorbike accident, so the band took a hiatus while awaiting her recovery. When she was fit again, they DIY produced their 18 track debut album “Keep Drinking”, released on Damnably/Electric Muse in 2019, followed by show stealing appearances at SXSW, TGE, LSC, Pentaport, Busan International Rock Festival, Zandari & MU:CON and also toured the UK tour supporting label mates Otoboke Beaver & Say Sue Me.
In February 2020 the band toured Europe with Otoboke Beaver just ahead of the pandemic shutting down the world. So, they wrote and recorded a new album and participated in several online editions of festivals.
The band’s sophomore album “Marriage License” was released in 2021, receiving acclaim and making best-of lists in the likes of Spin, Paste, MTV, Bandcamp, and radio play from KEXP and Stromo’s show on CBC in Canada. The album is a rallying cry in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights in conservative Daegu - this year the 15th Daegu Queer Culture Festival (DQCF) saw them perform, protected by 1,500 police from 450 homophobic government officials, for equality in marriage rights, and speaking out against sexual harassment and exploitation such as what occurred in the heinous Nth Room case.
In 2023, the band joined labelmates Otoboke Beaver’s UK/Ireland shows and will be joining them again for their 2024 North American tour.
