I think the question i get more often than not through the comment form on this website is: Where the hell do i buy some of this music?” especially from out of town visitors. I wrote about CD Rock before but there is of course a lot of other options, including the respectable and aptly name “Indie Music” shop on Gulou Xi Dajie. Josh, of Pangbianr and smartbeijing) did a nice write up on them recently.
This one is old school folky with Poshangcun, Zhang Qianqian, Zhang Guonian, Bu Yi and Xiao He.
more on the younger side of thingsm very poppy: Cha Liangfen, Elenore, Shou Ye Zhe, Ge Bi Tuan and Escape Plan (per del)
I’m definitely in for night 1 of this little shindig, especially with rumours floating around about Bu Yi that i’ll get to sometime soon. So, get out there, support the kids, the music and have yourselves a good little time.
