Sep 18: Bohemian Betyars

Bohemian Betyars

Sticking around after their scheduled appearance at Concrete & Grass, Hungarian band Bohemian Betyars' extra date at Yuyintang is one that cannot be overlooked. Self-described as speed-folk freak-punks, the energy that this outfit bring to the stage is enough to wear you out just watching them. If you're unable to catch them at Concrete & Grass then don't miss this.
