With the Olympics winding down, the underground gigs seem to be finally picking up. We still aren’t sure what is going on at Yuyintang, their webpage isn’t loading and the message they were sending out on Facebook was vague on when they were planning to re-open. Yesterday we text-messaged them regarding The Gar, who were scheduled to play tonight and YYT confirmed the gig was still on. Shanghaiist plans on showing up tonight, but with all the uncertainty we might be the only ones. Also, tonight at Live Bar they are going back to the blues with Plastic Shell and more.
Saturday, ten Shanghai bands are celebrating the end of the Olympics at the Dream Factory. Besides Shanghai favorites, Cold Fairyland and Yuguo there is a sold lineup of up-n-coming bands worth checking out.
