The Shanghai all-Australian “Spazz-Pop” three-piece band Hu Jia Hu Wei will be hosting their CD release party at On Stage, Friday October 18. The 50RMB entry includes the “My Way Or The Hu Jia Hu Wei” CD and a limited edition “sexy” calendar.
Opening for Hu Jia Hu Wei is live performance electronic group iAmalam (since Reykjavictim can’t make it) and alternative rock band Marquee VII.
Funny story about the making of the album and “Dead Rat” video below – the songs were recorded on two zoom recorders in the basement practice room of The Chows at 661 Zhaojiabang Lu, mixed by HJHW’s bassist Tim. The video was also shot in the practice room.
That’s DIY for you.

As usual, whenever Shanghai has a CD launch party, anyone who can make it turns up for the show – it’s like a get together within a secret underground circle that stretches so far around Shanghai, that you won’t know how awesome it is until you’ve joined the magic-password-required club.
Just kidding. It’ll be a bunch of music-inclined people hanging out, enjoying the performances having a beer or ten.
