Ever heard of Omnipotent Youth Society (万能青年旅店)? Ever listened to Dou Wei (竇唯) or been transported to Guangdong by Wu Tiao Ren’s (五条人) ballads? Join us as Thomas Bird, travel writer and musician, guides us through eight songs that chart Mainland Chinese Rock & Roll’s journey from Northwest Wind to contemporary post punk.
Thomas will be playing eight iconic songs and chronicling the bands that have defined the scene over the last four decades. We’ll also discuss Beijing’s changing music scene and give you a flavour of the Northern Capital’s nightlife, and how it compares to Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen.
This event is free.
