Eleven days ago, we proudly announced that The Living Thin, one of our favorite local bands, would be headlining our RMB 100 all-you-can-drink Shanghaiist Happy Hour at Shuffle Bar on Friday, April 21. Well, it turns out all is not rock ‘n roll for rock ‘n roll bands in Shanghai. Instead of “our guitar player entered rehab and we have to cancel our gig” it’s “our guitar player’s parents are visiting and he is joining them on a trip to Beijing that weekend so we have to cancel.” Let’s just hope he does some drugs with his parents in Beijing. Or at least some bai jiu.
Anyway, the party is still on. And so is the all-you-can-drink special. It’s just that the band lineup isn’t set yet. We’re working on it. Not that it will matter to most of you — you’ll be wasted by the time bands take the stage at 10 pm.
