[Final Update: This just isn't happening, at all. Another band pulled out so...no hardcore show this Thursday. Fans will need to wait until Friday the 13th at Inferno for a hardcore showcase.]
[Major Update: So Bane can't make it due to visa issues. Instead, local hardcore bands Spill Your Guts, Loudspeaker, Blood Raven, and possibly Own Up from Beijing are throwing down. Cover has been reduced to about 30 or 40rmb. Should still be a really solid night out for hardcore. Starts at 9pm.]

Starts at 9pm – don't be late and miss it.
