Feb 16: Joe Satriani


American guitarist Joe Satriani will be landing in Beijing on Thursday. This show is a pretty big deal. The legendary musician is a 15-time Grammy Award nominee and has sold over 10 million albums. Not to mention he’s been the lead guitarist for the likes of Mick Jagger and Deep Purple. Sure this show will put you back RMB800, but if you’re a fan the steep price tag might be worth it.

Thurs Feb 16, 7pm-late. RMB800; Tango, see event listing. For more information and tickets, click here

Feb 17: Macha Gharibian

Singer and pianist Macha Gharibian has been one of the breakout stars of French jazz, and she brings her new album tour to Beijing. On Trans Extended, Gharibian makes it even more difficult for critics, fans and magazine editors to classify her sound. In addition to clear jazz influences, the album also showcases elements of both classical and pop. The inscrutable musician will be accompanied at DDC by double bass player Theo Girard and drummer Fabrice Moreau, both of whom are featured on her most recent recording.

Fri Feb 17, 9-11.30pm. RMB70 (door) / RMB50 (presale). DDC, see event listing.

Feb 17: Rock Party: Dirty Fingers, Subs and Dress Code

If you’re looking for a night of heavy rock look no further than Yue Space on Friday night. Subs will be headlining, and psychedelic Shanghai band Dirty Fingers and Beijing-based Dress Code will support.

Fri Feb 17, 9.30pm. RMB50 (presale) / RMB60 (door). Yue Space, see event listing.

Feb 18: Pixel Echo 2017 Audio-Visual Live Performance

Pixel Echo is bringing their latest audiovisual show to Yue Space on Saturday. This experimental performance will be some sort of amalgamation of electronic music, audiovisual art, dance and installations. It should be pretty cool.

Sat Feb 18, 9-11.30pm; RMB80 (presale) / RMB100 (door); for presale tickets click here. Yue Space, see event listing.

Feb 18: ListenUp Rap Battle

Omni Space is hosting the Beijing side of the rap battle ListenUp, which will be taking place in cities across the country. Expect some excellent Chinese rap and hip-hop artists to perform in Beijing including C-SIR, Longjing Sun Xu, Cee and more.

Sat Feb 18, 8pm-midnight. RMB80 (presale) / RMB100 (door); for tickets click here. Omni Space, see event listing.

Feb 19: Beijing Power Pop Vol. 2

Royal As Purple is the pet project of Melvin Wong. The Hong Kong-born producer has performed around the world and worked with bands like The Arcade Fire and Mars Volta. Melvin is now based in Beijing working fervently on his latest project Royal as Purple. Redundant Seconds – made up of Indian drummer Berton, Spanish bassist Luc and Nepalese singer and guitarist Sid – will also be performing their signature 1950s-70s inspired tunes.

Sun Feb 19, 9pm-midnight; Free entry. School Bar, see event listing.
