Sunday night showcase of five local rock bands at one of Shanghai's best spots for a live show. Music by Forsaken Autumn, Blue Magpie, Wogui De Huoche, 谷水车间, and GriffO.

So this is a Beijing power-folk/gothic/indie band called 永动机 (Perpetual Motion Machine". They do "19th Century rock." Have a listen for yourself on Douban to here what that sounds like. They're playing a bunch of good venues in China like Beijing Mao Livehouse, Vox in Wuhan, and Yuyintang. So, should be alright. Cover is 50rmb. Starts at 9pm.
