Friday: Brain Failure at Speakeasy Bar
Beijing punk veterans Brain Failure (脑浊) bring their high-energy show back to Kunming tonight, almost a year to the day since their last show in the Spring City. One of China's most-traveled rock bands - they've toured all over China, the US and Japan - Brain Failure will be joined this time around by local bands Noise Addiction and the recently renamed Pretty in Punk (打死我也不说, formerly No Answer) for a 9:30 show at Speakeasy Bar. Admission is 30 yuan.
