Friday night I went to a local rock music festival, and it was great!!
Really missing live music here in Hefei and this was a very good experience!
The main reason I went yesterday was for one band I saw many years ago.. in Stavanger!! The SUBS, punk from Beijing. But they changed a lot the line-up (even a laowai drummer, not bad at all) and the sound as well, less punk, more metal. I do wonder if the singer was the same (some face resemblance) but the energy she put on the stage was the same. The show was indeed enjoyable:
Just before SUBS, a nice energetic trio opened the evening on the big stage, 谢天笑 “Xiè tiānxiào”:
SUBS were then followed by a singer, 郝云 “Hǎo yún”, and his band with several different instruments, that in some ways reminded of a Norwegian singer called Lillebjørn Nilsen:
The way they alternated different music styles was quite funny, especially when it came the last band/singer of the evening, 崔健 “Cuī jiàn”. In my mind, SUBS would have been perfect to warm up the public before 崔健, definitively not the sort of ballads/folk music of 郝云!!
Anyway, hope you’ll also enjoy 崔健:
