For any of you who have never heard Queen Sea Big Shark (pictured), shame on you. One of the hottest bands on the Beijing circuit they played the main stage at Midi this year (not a great performance, they are much better in small venues) and are set to release their debut album on Modern Sky in June. Billed as a “dance rock” band, they are definitely more rock and less dance. Check them out at 4Live tonight.
Mishkin, an emo-like band from Leeds in the UK will be playing at a few places this weekend, and if emo is your thing, we suggest checking them out at Yu Yin Tang’s new digs in the New Factories on Sunday the 27th. If emo isn’t your thing then there will be some folk type music at 4Live and NOIShanghai’s 2nd Anniversary party at Live Bar.
