Another week, another round of rumors floating around. Looks like the Busdriver show is going to happen and is scheduled for October 13th at 4Live. What makes it even more exciting is the fact that Yacht, Portland DJ extraordinaire, might be opening for him. Yacht is currently on tour with Architecture in Helsinki and in the past has toured with LCD Soundsystem. Seeing both him and Busdriver on the same stage makes us wet our pants a little each time we think about it.
Napalm Death a fairly well known hardcore/grindcore band from England is rumored to be making a stop in Shanghai during their Asia tour in September. Shanghaiist is still trying to track down the location, since 4Live is hosting the popular Bananas party on the night in question.
Looks like (at least for the next few months) that the Shanghai live music scene is still far from dead.
