Something for the weekend

A long weekend for some in fact, here's what gigs are on offer to fill it with.

Tonight kicks off with Rustic at YYT. I've never been that big on Rustic to be honest, I find the 'zany' antics grate a little - it's like the musical equivalent of having a 'you don't have to be mad to work here' mug. Having been listening to their album for the past couple of weeks, I'm not sure there's much musically to back it up. Dan Shapiro seems to be saying as much in his review of the album too. Having said all that, there are plenty of people who disagree and it'll doubtless be an entertaining show if you want to check it out. Moon Tyrant and Girls Like Mystery are on the bill too. Details.

Fortunately for the boys with the big hair from Beijing, alternatives are pretty scarce tonight. MAO Livehouse has some corporate dance off thing so the only reasonable alternative is Live Bar, where you'll find Puppets of Distortion, Rank, Les Semi Croustillants and a couple of others. Details.
Saturday, obviously there's MESH and all that comes with it. Yuyintang meanwhile have Little Nature, FAF, Candy Shop and Da Fresh, so that should pack the kids in. Details.

MAO Livehouse has a reggae night with Long Shen Dao, Beijing's answer to the Lions of Puxi, sharing the bill with the Lions of Puxi, Shanghai's answer to Long Shen Dao. Details.

Sunday sees MESH continue of course, while MAO Livehouse have Hoochie Coochie Gentleman. Yep. Check them out hereDetails.

Finally, before they host Eels and Nouvelle Vague on the Tuesday, MAO Livehouse have a show from Sound Toy on the Monday night
