Gig of the Week: 22 June — 28 June 2011
Where: Dos Kolegas
When: Sat 25 June, 16:00PM-late
How Much: Free!
Who: Nucleus, Migratory Bird, DUDE, Zhang Si’an, Black Cat Bone, Maggie Who, The Flying Mantas, Mademoiselle et son Orchestre, The Randy Abel Stable (More Info)
Why: Who can go past a free show at Dos Kolegas with such an incredible lineup! Highlights include some great jam session lineups, Ningxia folk AND hard rock outfits Migratory Bird/Nucleus, as well as expat stars Black Cat Bone, Mademoiselle, and the newly-formed Randy Abel Stable. It will be a long afternoon and evening of great music, chilling out on the Dos Kolegas lawn, and most likely some eating and drinking. Bring your friends and have a great time! You won’t be disappointed.
A direct tie for gig of the week — and it would have been it if I didn’t think the price tag of FREE was such a draw card — is the Life Journey “Wonderful Life” album launch at Yugong Yishan on Friday, 9:00PM, 80/60RMB. Other notable shows this week are Papier Tigre & Re-TROS at Yugong Yishan on Thursday (tomorrow) at 8PM, 50/30RMB, and the Rock Has Returned! show at Mao Livehouse with Brain Failure, Casino Demon and more, Saturday at 9PM, 100/80RMB.
