Following an explosive show with a guest appearance by Ninja of Die Antwoord in San Francisco, David Choe and band MANGCHI took a trip to San Jose to play The Ritz on Tuesday. MANGCHI (‘Hammer’ in Korean) picked up where they left off, as San Jose was treated to a night of crowd surfing, rodeo garb, and everything in between. Check out shots of Ceci DeeCee, Steebee Weebee and the crew at sound-check and exclusive photos of The Ritz show below.
MANGCHI played a highly anticipated show at Elbo Room in San Francisco on Monday, May 25th. After a short hiatus, the band consisting of David Choe, Heather Leather, Money Mark, Ceci DeeCee, Dylan Fujioka and DJ Denjahng captivated the crowd at Elbo Room.

About the Band:
“A fart from a child born without a butthole”, is what MANGCHI sounds like said 1 of the 2 people who were let into a room to hear this new sound. The second person, John Cusack , actor/comedian/artist from such films as “SAY ANYTHING” and “ROADSIDE PROPHETS” described the music as “If korn, depeche mode and the beastie boys were forced in a bus together to tour north korea, and all their lead singers quit in the middle of the tour, and the band picked up the korean versions of Debbie Gibson, Stacey-Q, and buddy Holly to replace the singers who just happened to be hitchhiking on The north korean countryside road, and then they all got in a tour bus accident and all got whiplash and broken bones, but Kim JONG UN made them play a show anyways with broken necks right on the side of road using the broken car parts as instruments over the non-existent ambulance sirens, that’s the closest I can get to describing the MANGCHI sound…. So basically listening to GOD’s voice as he’s hitting puberty… so basically Art.”
