Usually weekdays in Shanghai are fairly dead when it comes to gigs, but this week there is a slew of shows worth checking out. Jens Lekman will be playing two, much anticipated shows at JZ Club on Wednesday and at Glamour Bar on Thursday. This gives you two chances to check out why so many people are excited about the appearance of this Swedish indie-pop crooner.
Also on Wednesday, Cold Fairyland will be playing at the Melting Pot. While Thursday, thrash band Corrupt Absolute (formally known as 8mm Overdose) will show how to shred guitars Hawaiian style. What could be better, a thrash band from the land of sun and smiles that has shared the stage with the likes of Slayer and Hatebreed.
