Hailing from Canada, Braids is a three-piece shoegaze, post-rock band. After forming in 2011, the group already has three albums under their belt, including their 2013 release Flourish // Perish. Braids' sound is easily recognizable for its incredible vocals, strong drumming and smooth electronics. 

Fri Mar 3, 9pm. RMB80 (presale)/ RMB120 (door). DDC, see event listing

Mar 3: Fathoms

Any metalcore fans out there? We thought so. Head over to School Bar on Friday for a performance from the UK-based band Fathoms. The show will mark the first stop on their Asia tour. 

Fri Mar 3, 9pm. RMB100 (door) / RMB80 (advance). For tickets click here; School Live Bar, see event listing

Mar 3: Rookiez is Punk’d

Rookiez is Punk'd has been together for the past decade, but the Japanese punk band really started going strong in 2010, when one of their tunes was featured in a popular anime flick. Since then, they’ve been signed to Sony's Defstar Records and toured in the US – and the band’s popularity just keeps growing. They'll be touching down at Yugong Yishan on Friday night.

Fri Mar 3 9-10.30pm; RMB150 (presale) / RMB200 (door); to purchase tickets click here. Yugong Yishan, see event listing.

Mar 4: The fin

In the land of J-pop, The fin has established itself as Japan’s ‘it’ band.  In six years, the indie quartet has gone from self-releasing tracks on soundcloud to signing deals with UK labels and touring the world, impressing at the taste-making South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas and elsewhere.

Sat Mar 4, 9pm, RMB120-150. Yugong Yishan, see event listing.

Mar 4: Roy Hargrove Quintet

Roy Hargrove is an accomplished American jazz trumpeter. So far he has two Grammy’s under his belt and has played with the likes of Wynton Marsalis, Herbie Hancock and Robert Stewart. He’ll be landing at Blue Note Beijing on Saturday as part of the Roy Hargrove Quintet. 

Sat Mar 4, RMB480 (presale) / RMB580 (door). Blue Note Beijing, see event listing

Mar 4: Folk Fusion

If you’re a fan of folk music then this one’s for you. The Mountain High will bring their multicultural tunes to the mix (a combination of US Appalachian and West China) and Hugejiletu (frontman for Ajinai) will play his horse-head fiddle. This will be an all acoustic show, which will blend two very different traditions of music. It should be pretty cool. 

Sat Mar 4, 7-8.30pm. La Plantation, see event listing
