So what are we doing this weekend? Probably spending way too much time with our asses firmly parked on our (somewhat hard) couch. But, we will manage to pry ourselves out of the clutches of laziness for a few shows this weekend. We haven’t heard much from the Honey’s, one of Shanghai’s longest playing bands, for a few months and are excited to hear that this Friday they will be holding a CD release party at the Zhi Jiang Dream Factory. Best of all… this show is free and we love anything that is free. The much hyped CD has been in production for what seems like eternity (in music speak an eternity is about 2 years) and is rumored to be worth the wait. Another Shanghai band that is finally making it back onto stage is Yuguo, who are playing at Yuyintang on Friday. If neither of these fairly mellow sounding rock bands is sweaty enough for you then head to Live Bar where that AC/DC tribute band will be playing for 3 straight nights. Those who really want to impress their girlfriends pull out those wallets and head to see Maroon 5 prance around to the biggest hits off their multi-platinum albums.
We’ve never understood why some people feel sad on Mondays, but if you really hate your life or your job and need to blow off some steam then check out Horse the Band at Yuyintang. This band rocks…..hard and with gameboy sounds. Now what could be better than that?
