Beijing Live Quickslants: folk, metal & wine make this weekend go roun’
This weekend might not be as abysmal in its musical offerings compared to the last one but that is for 2 main reasons only: The White Eyes ( see review below) and 2 yes that 2 Lamb of God concerts in Beijing!!!
Friday April 9:
Free Wine @ Shuangjing carrefour: No, it’s not a new band name but good old vino. The twice-a-year wine festival at carrefour strikes again with free tasting from 6:00 to Midnight and 20% off all imported wine for the whole weekend. See what BeijingBoyce has to say about it
After the free wine, you might wanna load a few cases home then head over to see Candy Monster and Friends @ 2Kolegas: Quite a few bands on this particular bill including Rustic & Lazy Camels. You just gotta check out the write up that Pete De Mola did on this gig over at weliveinbeijing.com .. hilarious!
Saturday April 10
Made in Ningxia @ 2Kolegas: Wu & the Side Effects, Nucleus and Buyi aka the ningxia gang bring their cacophony of sounds to the drivein. Support also assured by The Amazing Insurance Salesmen
Another option on saturday could be Da Bi Zi @ Ginkgo: weird hybrid of French hip hop meets chinese folks with a dose of rap to make it go down smoothly. It’s always a party at Ginkgo..
Sunday April 11 & Tuesday April 13
Lamb of God @ Starlive: The new monsters of metal land in Beijing for 2 shows! Expect chaos and mayhem with lots f brutality and whatever you do, stay out of the pits if you hear the words “wall of death”. Details here
