If you're looking for a weekday show, look no further than School Bar. Volume 6 of School's "Psycho" series is happening on Wednesday night. Instrumental trio Acid Accident, South Korean experimental rockers Impair, and experimental post-rock trio Tydi Knots will all perform.
Sofia Jannok hails from the Arctic area of Sápmi, which might explain her unique style -- pop music combined with traditional Sami joik. The singer-songwriter has been nominated for two Grammy awards. You can check out her smooth, melodic vocals at Yugong Yishan on Thursday night.
Not long after the band first formed, Birdstriking had risen through the ranks of the Chinese capital’s rock clubs. In 2012, the then college-aged trio released their self-titled debut album, which was recorded by local hero Yang Haisong from P.K.14 via Maybe Mars. They're latest album Holey Brain sees the band veering in a new musical direction, with a more developed sound, albeit without the first album’s active courting of controversy.
The new MAO Livehouse Wukesong has officially opened. This weekend Namgar and Rid will take the stage together to bring you a night of Mongolian and reggae music. Expect an energetic and unique night of fusion music.
