ROK welcomes reopening of communication chanhow long does a disney magic band lastnel with DPRKLadies In Music Alphabet-- The Judds Billy Draws Two consists of Billy Horn 25 (Niagara Falls, N.Y.) , lead vocals, guitar, harmonica and songwriter, Doug Krell, 26, (Youngstown, N.Y.), rhythm guitar, backing vocals and bass, Rosie Lorentti, 20, (Lewiston, N.Y.), bass and backing vocals and piano and Chris McClellen, 23, (Buffalo, N.Y.), drums. Off Broadway is one of the few St. Louis music venues that attracts indie rock and punk bands that are up and coming, but that aren"t completely obscure. A perfect example is the brand new psychedelic folk group Here We Go Magic, which played a beautiful set at Off Broadway a couple weeks ago. The band had stopped in St. Louis on it"s way to the festival wristbands, where they played a ton of shows that got pretty impressive reviews. And the gun slingin", whiskey guzzlin" indie rockers Murder By Death are scheduled to play at Off Broadway in May - it"s bound to be a more appropriate atmosphere than if the group performed at the Pageant to the tune of $5 Budweisers. JON AUER What I find compelling about sport wristbands BLOOD/CANDY is that it may be our most unified record and yet our most eclectic record at the same time. Certainly wins my vote for best album art we"ve ever had.
SEOUL - The presidential palace of the Republic of Korea (ROK) Blue House welcomed the reopening of communication channel with the Democratic People"s Republic of Korea (DPRK) Wednesday, saying it would indicate a restored inter-Korean dialogue in a regular way.
Yoon Young-chan, senior press secretary for ROK President Moon Jae-in, told reporters that the reopening had a great meaning, saying it would make possible inter-Korean talks in a regular manner.
The comments followed the DPRK"s announcement earlier in the day that it will reopen the communication channel in the truce village of Panmunjom from 3:30 pm local time.
The inter-Korean communication channel had been cut off since the previous ROK government unilaterally closed down the inter-Korean industrial zone in the DPRK"s border town of Kaesong following Pyongyang"s fourth nuclear test in January 2016.
Seoul"s unification ministry said in a government statement that it hailed Pyongyang"s positive response to Seoul"s offer Tuesday to resume the communication channel in Panmunjom.
It said the ROK will make working-level discussions on issues on the senior-level, inter-governmental dialogue, which Seoul proposed Tuesday to Pyongyang, through the restored communication channel.
The ROK offered to the DPRK holding such talks on Jan 9 to discuss the dispatch of the DPRK"s delegation to the 2018 Winter Olympics set to be held in February in the ROK"s eastern county of Pyeongchang.
The dialogue overture came a day after the DPRK"s leader said in his New Year address that his country was willing to participate in the ROK-hosted winter sports event and talk with the ROK about the DPRK"s delegation dispatch.
