Following the explosive opening weekend at Windows Tembo and another great Subs performance the scene is still buzzing with activity and expectation. One side effect appears to be hype and punditry getting in earlier than usual so Shanghaiist does not want to be left out.
The hype this week is building around the You Say Party! We Say Die! gig at Dream Factory this Saturday and with Hard Queen and Banana Monkey also on the bill, we understand why. CW music columnist Aric Queen is wondering which of two after parties for the show is the real ‘official’ party and who will win out, DJ Ozone or DJ R3. Electronic music DJs doing the after parties at rock shows? Why not play rock music afterwards?
It’s time for this Shanghaiist to take a break from the hype and to hang at Yuyintang for the next 0093 Rock Party on Saturday night. The venue’s CD shop is now open and has CDs from a wide range of local Chinese acts. This week’s party will be headlined by Mortal Fools. The 0093 parties are showcases for new bands and musicians who are based in the 0093 rehearsal studios, so head on down to Yuyingtang to see who’s on their way up. Starts from 7.00pm:
Yuyintang, this Saturday 7pm: 1731 West Yan An Rd (Kai Xuan Rd)
Directly next to the Yan’an Road West station.
