UPDATE: Official China tour dates here.
If you are reading this saying, “Jens who?”, click here. He’s Swedish and he plays good music. And, we learned today, he’ll be in our neck of the woods — literally around the corner from Shanghaiist Headquarters (we think) — in less than a month. There are conflicting reports on venues and dates. This link says, “12.02 at Mao Live (BJ), 12.03 at JZ (SH) and 12.04 at Glamour Bar (SH).” Jens’ website says Dec. 4 at JZ in Shanghai, Dec. 3 at JZ in Hangzhou (is there one there?) and Dec. 2 at Yugong Yishan in Beijing. Jens’ label says Dec. 4 at Glamour Bar, Dec. 3 at JZ in Hangzhou and Dec. 2 at MAO Live in Beijing. (For what it’s worth, we couldn’t find anything up on the JZ and Glamour Bar websites yet.) It does appear that wherever and whenever Jens performs, he’ll be doing so with Viktor Sjöberg. We’re sure all this will get ironed out soon. When we get confirmed gig and ticket information, we’ll let you know. Until then, enjoy the embedded video of Jens performing “Postcard to Nina” live in Bloomington, Indiana.
