Aug 21: Cigarettes After Sex 

In the 40s, 50s and even into the 60s, an era some would call a 'golden-age' for American cinema, movies in the US seldom, if ever, contained any explicit sexual content. It became a theme, and later a running joke, that directors would write a scene of two lovers smoking cigarettes and wearing undergarments instead. This is why the band ‘Cigarettes after Sex’ has a legacy to uphold. These Cigs after Sex write drowsy, noir-ish dream pop, which the band’s label has described as ‘smoky’ and ‘eyes-closed’. You’re not getting passionate, sexy music; you’re getting the carefree and deeply relaxed aftermath of an intimate night.

Mon Aug 21, 8pm; RMB180-220; Tango, see event listing, yoopay.cn for tickets.
