Tuareg musical collective Tinariwen, who won a Grammy for their 2011 album Tassili and are renowned for their emotional, politically charged desert blues, come to Shanghai for the first time as part of a tour from Split Works. Check out our interview with Tinariwen here.
Nov 15, 8pm. Bandai Namco Shanghai Base, see event listing.


Nov 17: Vurro

This one-man band from Spain plays a chaotic mix of bluesy folk and hard rock. He wears a cow skull on his head during performances, and has an elaborate mythical origin story involving a man and cow fusing into one being. Should be memorable, to say the least.
Nov 15, 9pm, RMB70. Yuyintang, see event listing


Nov 17: MØ: The Future is Girls'

201711/Mo.jpg

STD hosts this girl power-themed show headlined Danish electropop artist MØ, who was one half of a feminist punk band before becoming the vocalist on Major Lazer's wildly popular song 'Lean On' and becoming one of the world's biggest pop stars. She's also collaborated with Justin Beiber and Iggy Azalea, and is known for her fun and raucous live shows. 
Nov 17, 10pm, RMB300 presale RMB350 door. Arkham, see event listing.
