More and more Beijing bands are making the journey across China to perform in Kunming and elsewhere in Yunnan – in the next week two of the capital's more popular bands will perform, with good turnouts expected for both shows.
The first band to roll into town is Candy Gun (糖果枪), which will play Speakeasy Bar at 9:30 pm on Sunday night. The four-piece band plays rather heavy rock with lyrics that touch upon struggle, love, loneliness and perseverance. Tickets for the show are 30 yuan for the general public and 25 yuan for students.
Next Wednesday, Beijing pop punk/ska/hardcore mainstays Reflector (反光镜) will play the Laowo Bar - across from the Yunnan Art Institute's main gate just off of Kunrui Lu. Reflector is one of the first Chinese rock bands to tour the US, an experience that helped the band hone their live shows. Special opening act No Answer will kick things off at 9 pm - admission is 30 yuan.© Copyright 2005-2021 GoKunming.com all rights reserved.
