Gỗ Lim | Gái Làng


Before her death from lupus in 2012, Nga Nhí fronted popular Vietnamese riot grrrl band Gỗ Lim.

Though they were together for only a year, they recorded one of the greatest albums of the genre, Gái Làng, an angular but sprawling sonic assault with nods to Gang of Four, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Fugazi, Bikini Kill, and the more experimental end of Vietnamese hard rock and metal, but ultimately unlike anything before it.

I'm going to open tonight's Bodega Pop Live show with half a dozen tracks from this astonishing, bar-raising, ear-altering album, and I'd love for you to be there to hear it with me.

Bookmark the page and see you at 7:00 PM EDT tonight!
