Where: Yugong Yishan
When: Fri 10 June, 21:30PM
How Much: 60RMB; 40RMB students
Who: Rustic, Birdstriking, and a secret guest (More Info)
Why: I believe I actually recommended this gig the first time it was meant to happen in April, and this time is no exception. After more than a month of touring around this country, Rustic is back in the capital to finally celebrate their debut album on their home turf. It should be an incredible, fun show — Rustic are some great performers, and always a good time. I saw Birdstriking for the first time at last weekend’s show, and wasn’t impressed, but hopefully at a different gig with a different vibe, my impression will be changed. And I’m ever-curious about the secret guest. Can’t wait to see who’s been added to the lineup.
This weekend is pretty slow compared to the Dragon Boat festivities of last weekend, but there are a couple of notable runners up: Hang on the Box & Pacalolo at Mao Livehouse on Friday, 9:30PM, 50/40RMB; and the I Rap For Orphans charity show at Dos Kolegas on Sunday, from 3PM, 60/30RMB going to a good cause.
