This year we are bringing more amazing musicians as well as a theme of Taiwan Night Market to kick off Thanksgiving weekend, come join us at 3rd "Hello Taiwan Rocks!" Concert. Event proceeds will go the Hurricane Sandy Relief effort!
Date: 11/17 6-10pm (Free admission from 6-7pm! $10 after 7pm)
Address: Taiwan Center (137-44 Northern Blvd, Flushing, NY 11354)
For that event the proceed will go the Hurricane Sandy Relief effort, In particular, to the Breezy Point firemen whose houses were burned down. We felt terrible that many of them were the first responders at 9/11 terrorist attack and now are homeless. Mr. Daniel Nigro, Fire Chief during the recovery of the September 11th attack, has accepted "Hello Taiwan Rocks!" organizers' invitation to send FDNY firefighters to attend the 11/17 concert. So let's show them our warmest support!!
New York City has long been one of the leading centers of indie music movement. Within it, Taiwanese musicians are also in the scene making music and hoping one day in reaching to the top.
Last year, many local Taiwanese communities held a concert named "Hello Taiwan Rocks!" in the Taiwan Center located in Flushing New York with four Taiwanese indie-bands based in the Greater New York area. The concert provided a platform for the bands to perform while the fans got to listen to many amazing Taiwanese bands perform for a night of rock-and-roll, a cultural night to be remembered together before the Thanksgiving festivities.
Flushing is where many of the Taiwanese immigrants settle when they first arrive in New York, and Taiwan Center was established to be the community hub for all Taiwanese events. Though the concert is only in its third year, the organizers wish it to be an annual tradition to provide an opportunity for the indie bands to showcase their music and for the younger generation to unite, celebrate and network.
This year, we have also added the popular Taiwanese culture, Taiwan Night Market, to bring you all some Taiwan's most iconic snacks while enjoy the performance at the same time!
