Lazy blogging: a few links

|
kingsizehomermain.jpgSorry to just repost a bunch of links, but a reminder that while this blog has become pretty sparse of late, there's plenty of good regular content coming out over here.

To follow up on the Strawberry rumour two posts down, it looks like it will be happening in Shanghai in April. Not only that, but following lots of rumours, Midi will throw their own festival in the city about a week before. Read more here

Something else to look forward to in April is a new Hedgehog album. They'll release it at Yuyintang on Friday 13th.

If you missed The Instigation playing at the last ever Trash a Go-Go recently (more on their end here), then you can check out this video, though it's on Vimeo so you'll need a VPN.

Finally, here's a new Shanghai band to keep an eye on.

That adds to Split Works' JUE Festival, which wraps up this weekend with (despite all the troubles) two shows at MAO Livehouse, the planned return of the (more traditional festival-like) Yue Festival that they held in Zhongshan Park a few years back, the Nanjing (International) Music Festival (line up here) going head to head with Modern Sky's Strawberry in Suzhou at the end of April and Midi, which is finally coming to Shanghai, taking over Century Park from May 6. 

This latest addition seems to be more in the form of a one-night concert rather than a festival festival, but if they're pulling in an act like Eels, then they clearly mean business. The other thing which makes you think they're using the 'festival' term rather loosely is that they're holding it at MAO Livehouse. Still, Eels - that's not bad eh? The Kama festival's website consists mostly of a bunch of dummy text at the moment, so it's hard to know what the details are, but Eels have announced the date on their official website so it seems pretty legit. There's also (less excitingly) whispers of Keane coming, but we'll see how that one develops....
