Quickslants: Black Rabbit, AC/DC tribute, Tuvan world music

Ok, BD may be out of town this weekend, but the rest of us are here and ready to make the most what’s left of the warm weather! Heaps going on this weekend, but here’s a few of the highlights:

Friday Sept 16

Long Shen Dao @ 2 Kolegas
The weather is getting cooler, but there’s still time for a few more parties out on the grass! Come out to the drive-in tonight for reggae and ska from the masters Long Shen Dao, who are currently filming a music video!

Saturday Sept 17

Black Rabbit @ Chaoyang Sports Park
Is there anywhere else to be tonight? You’ve seen the line up, Ludacris, 30STM, Grandmaster Flash along with popstars, and our local indie favourites – this is one not to be missed!

Sunday Sept 18

Dirty Deeds @ Yugong Yishan:
The boys are back in black and ready to rock! A once off reunion of Beijing’s one and only AC/DC covers band. When Kaiser Kuo & Jaime Welton get on the same stage you know you’re in for a rocking night!

Monday Sept 19

Huun Huur Tu @ Yugong Yishan
Tuvan folk musicians who’ve been described as “a warped Asian version of Radiohead“. Sounds intriguing, enough to get me out on a Monday night!

And there’s heaps more on too, bluegrass out at D22, electro folk at 798, and Shufuland is back at 2Kolegas for you post Black Rabbit fix. So get out there and enjoy the weekend before the last of the warm weather disappears!

    Thanks Ruby.. I’m missing a bunch but my stomach is having a happy journey. I would add

    Dong Zi @Jianghu on Friday:
    One of the best and most intense voices this side of the pacific. His brand of folk is absolutely amazing and he has a way to grab and suck you in! There aren’t many musicians in Beijing that pull that off with just a voice and a guitar.

    you guys have fun.

    Oh, I didn’t forget Dongzi! He plays often in Jianghu or JiangJinJiu and I think I’ve mentioned him quite a few times before 😉

    I know you guys don’t cover 13 Club but tonight you also got REAL Heavy Metal over in Wudaokou… not the the singy song shit with a few heavy parts and a cute singer with stick up hair, REAL Heavy Metal!


    Ah, and yes, Shufuland will be dangerous! hehehehe… always is

    Hey, we mention 13Club occasionally … it’s just soooo far away 😛
    Nice line up though, been wanting to check out Devils at the Crossroad for a while now.

    With the weekend I have planned I’ll probably end up asleep on the couches at Shufuland, see you there!

    It’s right next to D22 that you mentioned…isn’t it? 😉
    Funny enough, I have a few friends that say Kolegas is too far away (Gulou/Sunlitun types)… I guess it’s all relative. See ya at Shufuland and maybe around the daytime at Black Rabbit!
