Midweek music preview is our weekly rundown of everything happening on stages across the city. Unfortunately for those of you stuck in town this week (like us), there’s apparently nothing like the Chinese National Holidays to absolutely murder local music. Yuyintang’s got a few gigs to get us through, and this week we’re listing a few of the local DJ sets to at least keep you occupied! Check out details below, or head over to our calendar for more.
