We’ll keep this quick. It’s beautiful outside and half-price beers await.
Shotgun She-Ras @ 4Live: We’ve been telling you about these girls for two weeks now. In addition to rocking our happy hour tomorrow, they will be playing 4Live tonight. “Fans of Dolly Parton and Lorretta Lynn, these 4 girls don’t have time for none of that cheesy new country music they got real ol’ country souls” — that’s what the PR people say. 9 pm, RMB 50 entry, free beer from 9-10pm.
Etienne @ Labella: “Gypsy jazz.” We have heard good things. No cover. Labella website.
Shotgun She-Ras @ ENO (Shanghaiist Happy Hour): Read all about it. Band starts at 5:30 pm. Stick around for cheap drinks, discounts on clothing, more great music, and great (and cheap) food (hot dogs, tacos, sandwiches, cookies, brownies ….). FREE ENTRY!
Adventure Island @ Yuyintang: Performances from bands Monkey Power, boojii, CDGE, Wiiky and The Honeys. More info (in Chinese) at venue website. RMB 30 entry, 7:30 pm.
The SUBS @ 4Live: Well-known post-punk band from Beijing. With the Dropkicks. 9 pm, RMB 50. Photos of The SUBS in Shanghai last summer.
Shotgun She-Ras @ Live Bar: We’re not sure if this is still happening or not, based on recent events. Call ahead.
Top Floor Circus Tribute @ 4Live: Perhaps you have heard of Top Floor Circus — they have quite a reputation. Well, this is how this gig has been explained to us: “They organized this thing where local bands go and cover their songs. A contest modeled on Super Girl.” Could be interesting … or just an April Fool’s prank. 8 pm, supposedly.
