Scene & Heard: Frequent Collaborative

By That's Beijing, November 5, 2019

0 0

In collaboration with C5 Art Space in Sanlitun, Fruityspace debuted a new gig venue dubbed Frequent Collaborative – well, sort of. By day, the clean white walls of C5 house various art exhibits, with the occasional weekend takeover for a live music show (aka when the space temporarily becomes Frequent Collaborative). 

Stripped of any souped-up pretention, the mostly bare gallery space does its duty as an intimate listening environment for attendees. It’s really just you and the music – what more do you need? 


Over the past couple months, they’ve organized a handful of shows already, spotlighting brilliant acts like Eating Music, a Shanghai-based label with a focus on electronic music, Space Fruity Records’ own surf rockers The Molds, and more recently, Beijing-based experimental rock project Dreaming Julie. Keep an eye out for more gigs and goods from the pop-up venue to come.
