Nov 22: Psycho Night Volume 6

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. 

Wed Nov 22, 9pm; RMB40. School Live Bar, see event listing

Nov 23: Sofia Jannok

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. 

Thur Nov 23, 9-11pm; RMB150 (door), RMB120 (presale). Yugong Yishan, see event listing

Nov 24: Birdstriking

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. 

Fri Nov 24, 9.30-11.30pm; RMB100 (door), RMB80 (presale). Yugong Yishan, see event listing.

Nov 25: Namgar + Rid

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.

Sat Nov 25, 9pm; RMB100 (presale), RMB160 (door). MAO Livehouse Beijing (Wukesong), see event listing

Nov 25: Sofar Sounds

Sofar (Songs From a Room) Sounds is returning to Beijing on Saturday afternoon. The event is part of a secret gig series, which proudly celebrates small, intimate and (relatively) secret shows. The address will be revealed to ticket holders the day before the show. 

Sat Nov 25, 2.30-5pm. Free entry, for tickets click here.
