Beijing Quick Slants: This week’s shows and GAWTMY audition

loads of things happening in Beijing lately, even during the holidays:

– Made it to Folk Me fest at Mao Livehouse (map) yesterday. Line up included an “unknown” trio, The Redbucks, Hanggai and Buyi. I wish they stuck to the band rotation they list outside because it’s sometimes difficult to know who is who unless you’ve seen them before. Great show overall with a review coming up soon.

GAWTMY is still alive, kicking and searching for a new Rhythm Guitar player amongst others: Check this City Weekend add . Expect an interview with their drummer and the new singer soon.

Bad Apples which had gone MIA over the summer marks their return to the Beijing music scene with a show on October 30th at Ginkgo(map)

– Talking about Ginkgo (map), they continue their schyzophrenic line up of acts with Shanghai’s Tony Tse Live this October 8th. I heard some good stuff about his shows!! will definitely try to make this one!

– Also, Lonely China Day, a local favorite, is playing 2 Kolegas (map) this Friday October 9th. I’ve seen those guys a few times and highly recommend their gigs, especially at 2kolegas while there is still moderately good weather to enjoy.

– Finally, The Redbucks are back with their full lineup October 12th at Jiang jin jiu bar (map).

Cheers and stay dazed
