One of my fondest memories of a Slovenian music festival I went to back in 2018 was discovering the St. Petersburg post-punk outfit SHORTPARIS. Combining irrational, spastic dance grooves with theatrical performances and exalted vocals in Russian, French, and English, the collective is essentially a cross between audiovisual theatre, techno rave, and punk rock swagger - one that seems to move to a highly engrossing tribalistic, machine-like pulse. The band has been causing a stir over the past couple of years, and their appearances at festivals have become the talk of legend here in China. Expect a live performance unlike anything else.
