REC ROOM 2016-2017

REC ROOM established itself as a live music venue in Hanoi in 2016 after two years of DIY audio recording and live music organising across town. Situated on the 20th floor of the Hanoi Creative City building near the Old Quarter, REC ROOM quickly became one of the top locations for locally-based musicians and touring performers. Aside from hosting regular metal shows, hip hop parties, indie rock bands and music workshops, the venue was also utilised as creative space for audio recording, video shooting and art exhibitions. 

This page contains a collection of photos and videos from the 18 month period where REC ROOM established itself in Hanoi as a platform for a variety of musical subcultures, and as a progressive live music venue promoting a raw and upcoming original music scene from the Hanoi underground.
