This Japanese screamo sensation was formed in Tokyo in 1992 and has since made a wide array of thunderous, melodic records. With influences from post-hardcore, screamo and post-rock, their music emcompasses a sound where intensity and beauty coexist.

Jan 18, 9pm, RMB200 pre-sale. Mao Livehouse, see event listingbuy tickets.

Jan 18-19: That Funk Show

Get up. Get into it! Shake brings the floor-filling funk for their first big concert of 2019. Courtney Knott and the full band take you on a voyage of music by James Brown, Parliament, Marvin Gaye, Prince and many more. Big horns, bigger grooves and downbeats heavier than a '75 Cadillac. Fix up, look sharp and get down. Dinner from 6pm, music from 10.30pm. Late set by Tony Hall on Friday, and Matt Cooper on Saturday.

Jan 18-19, 10.30pm, RMB100. Shake, see event listing.
