Aug 18: Flowers of Ruin: Female Punk Rock Series @ The Pearl

1593555510.jpg

Girl Punk Rock Power, as two girl punk bands hit the stage at The Pearl, Pizza Face from Beijing and local rockers HEY! LILY! from Shanghai.

Formed in 2015, HEY! LILY! keeps things fresh in this busy world, smashing all negativity and unease with dopamine-filled music. Embracing a retro vibe, their works are based on Punk, Grunge, and Indie, with elements of Disco, Funk, and other dance rhythms. Their simple song structures and catchy melodies exude a hormonal rhythm, like a dose of dopamine that gets you hooked. The name "LILY" comes from the homophonic term in Chinese and English for a warm and affectionate nickname, while "black" represents the power of breakthrough. In the world of HEY! LILY!, there is no gender conflict. "Facing the inner self, unafraid of the future," this is the most profound expression of HEY! LILY!.

PizzaFace is both pizza-faced and bodhisattva-faced. It is a sweet-burning bomb that deviates from the track. It is the sleepless night of long pimples, and also the courage to laugh about it no matter how life goes, always daring to say "no." It is a four-person band injecting Dream-pop elements into punk music. It is countless uncontrolled ideas splitting into one and merging into one. It is the plain of drunken oxygen and the mountain of insomnia. It is the flag and the pole. When you hear the music, come to us. We've prepared the softest embrace and the hardest baseball bat. You will always get your favorite gift.

The band was formed in April 2018 and operates independently. To date, they have performed over 180 shows, including at Strawberry Music Festival, MIDI Music Festival, City Sound Festival, and Wood Horse Music Festival. They have won the LPA Independent Music's Most Promising Punk Band Award from 2019 to 2021 and the SCHOOL Annual Best Live Band Award in 2021. They have collaborated on films "The Eleventh Time," "One Thirty-Sixth," and TV shows like "Rock Flower" and musicals like "Wave in the Swamp" and "Why Nothing Has Disappeared."

Aug 19: Sound Vertigo @ The Pearl

2036412189.jpg

This month, The Pearl invite listeners to take the leap and dive head first into the abyss of some of rock and roll’s more deviant realms - a whirlpool of electronica, psychedelic rock, post punk, and then some - with a trio of bands from Shanghai, Nanjing and Hangzhou that valiantly indulge in a sense of vertigo in their sound, forging ahead into musical psychosis with reckless abandon.

Shanghai psychedelic prog rockers Dizang - a mythic and transcendent swirl of influences and tones as mind-bending psychedelia, world music and neo-folk gets filtered through their ravenous and robust rock and roll chops, calling to mind everyone from King Crimson to Jethro Tull. There's a spiritedness to the way the band giddily dives headfirst into their musical canvas, deconstructing and pushing their sound into whatever gleeful direction they so may choose.

Springing forth from Hangzhou is Pillow Case - the riotous four-piece indie rock outfit that's been causing a stir since emerging onto the scene a couple of years back. A spiked cocktail of grunge, post punk, new wave, and shoegaze - there's a brooding volatile heart beneath the band's jagged edges and reverb-drenched melodies - allowing the twists and turns in their sound to combust upon impact.。

Nanjing electro rock band finds feverish refuge in the outer fringes of rock and roll - an abrasive exhilarating melding of techno-laced electronica, concrete floor industrial rock, hard-hitting post punk, and more. Injected with both ambient-filled sample-filled slow burns and headier crystallized acid-laced breakdowns, the band throws gloriously throws caution to the wind, inviting listeners into their topsy-turvy world.
