Sat, Nov 30: Galen Crew Apologue Tour 2019 @ Mao Livehouse
Chill out this Saturday afternoon listening to the rhythmic jams of singer-songwriter Galen Crew as he draws the audience in with acoustic chord progressions and light yet powerful vocals. The show starts at 2pm (super early, we know) and will take place at Mao Livehouse.
Sat-Sun, Nov 30-Dec 1: Strawberry Music Festival @ Chimelong Music Festival Square
Strawberry Music Festival returns to the Greater Bay Area this weekend for another exciting celebration of great artists! This year is no different, with cinematic dream pop and shoegaze band Blue Foundation and British indie rock band Swim Deep set to make an appearance. Also slated for the rockin’ show are rock and roll band Xin Kuzi (New Pants) and Chongqing-based hip hop artist GAI. Since Shenzhen’s show has been canceled, this year’s Guangzhou festival should be bigger and badder than ever. Aside from awesome jams, there will be pop-up shops selling eco-conscious products around the venue.
