Tydi Knots is Rudi and Tyron. Combining the classical influences with their already experimental rock sounds, they create a new soundscape that crosses various genres. Playing as a 2 piece they have a large sound and also play various sets and interpretations of their original songs. A unique show that is both enticing and intimate exciting as well as memorable. Their sound is difficult to set to a genre as they draw inspiration and influences from all various genres and styles of music, but the band’s musical style can be described as a mix between alternative, indie pop, rock, post rock, ambient and experimental rock.
Russian roulette is a middle school punk band from Beijing. Since its establishment in 2016, the band has survived hardly because their songs are sick, performances are bad. But they have lots of fans for their All-in performance every time. You will never know what would happen during the drunk boys’ destroying performances. Their music is a mix between punk and classic rock music of the 1970s…
Come to the show to meet them and know them !
北京middle school朋克乐队。自2016年成立以来一直苟活在北京的地下摇滚圈，演黄了一个又一个live house，成为了当之无愧的北京难听之王。尽管很难听，还是受到了人们的喜爱，因为看他们的演出就像看马戏，你永远不知道醉酒后的他们会做出什么令人发指的事儿来。从他们身上你会看到70年代的胡逼，80年代的华丽，90年代的进步和00年代的先进。
Beijing based electro metal band that will melt your faces off!!!
The future starts now!!!
“That’s the kind of music I like to listen to (…) it’s harder, harder and harder to find good bands cuz’ we’ve been doing heavy metal music for for 30 f***’ plus years (…) you guys just f**’ blew my nuts off…”
-Dave Brockie (GWAR)
Scare the Children
Scare the Children was formed in August of 2014 as a concept band that draws inspiration from all things horror. The music, the lyrics, the art work, the costumes and the stage props are all interwound to tell a horror story that is both frightening and compelling.
With a heavy sound that combines groove metal and punk, adding elaborate piano parts, Scare the Children attempts to create a truly immerse experience for the concert going audience that stretches beyond music, bringing in a bone-chilling show to anyone who witnesses it.
Scare The Children是一支金属乐队，成立于2014年8月， 用音乐与舞台效果讲述鬼魂附身的洋娃娃Betsy与一位小男孩交往的故事。相识后，Betsy与小男孩分离，一年复一年时间流逝，小洋娃娃一直在寻找旧主。乐队的目标是给观众创造一种完全植入性的体验，通过穿上娃娃服装和使用台上的视觉效果来超越音乐的限制。乐队在阵容编制上很有特色，首先乐队为了营造以低频为主的效果，舍去偏高频的吉它，干脆启用两把贝斯作为主要乐器（一把五弦，一把六弦）。而且站在前排的贝斯手是伴唱，而坐在最后面的鼓手才是真正的主唱大人。
Hailing from the frozen wastelands of Siberia, Alex Sinchuck found his hands too cold to play guitar, and so migrated to warmer climates to learn to ways of love, surfing, and rock’n roll. His trail of broken hearts soon led to Beijing, heart of China, where he plays his guitar throughout the city where the name “Alex” will not soon be forgotten.
Chris Saunders, born in Asia, a citizen of America, with heritage from the middle east and raised in Europe, has been called “the man from nowhere”. They say he even now wanders the dark hutongs of Beijing, playing dice with strangers and playing music in the smoky bars of a city with a heart of metal.
Chuck Cooper was born to a life of duality, half English and half American. Caught between the conflicts of two rival nations, he vowed to search the earth for a rhythm that would mend the rift between his two halves. His journey soon took him to the ancient land of drums and gongs, and within Beijing he captures every rhythm he can, in hopes that one of them will bring peace and unity to the Old World and the New.
The Peppercorns is a band that plays heavy psychedelic rock music rooted in classic 70’s style, drawing inspiration from prog and art rock. The band is guitar heavy with experimental synth while still maintaining a pop sensibility. Fronted by Edog Wonderlogg II with Kangaroo Zhong and XianXX on guitar, Brain 2.0 on drums, Yan Von3000 on bass and Andrew the lone wolf on synth/violin.
Like the word “Backspace,” This is a band filled with the sensitive temperament of young people in the digital age. Motorik-style drums, compact and dramatic bass, a large guitar, and sometimes surf music as clear as the sound of the ominous appearance of howling. Full of randomness and aggressiveness.
Djang San, an artist who has released more than 40 albums since 2003, is now exploring electronic music and pushing the boundaries of electro-folk as a solo one man band.
Djang San has toured extensively in 2017 both solo and with his trio, two times in South Korea and one time in Japan where he has also released an album on CD that is available in stores across Japan.
He has also played several festivals and concerts in China in 2017 and released a quadruple album, a trio album and another solo album.
他无疑大大革新了这一中国传统乐器的使用。乐队整体风格多样，像是带有中国风格的民谣，兼具摇滚、爵士、电子等其他乐风。张思安原名让-塞巴斯蒂安·艾利。他于2000年踏上中国的土地。2010年，他以“保险超人乐队”参加了中国摇滚大赛 并在中国大陆和香港地区赢得冠军。他一直在电子和实验音乐领域孜孜不倦地探索。他的音乐很难归类。他是第一个用中阮作曲的外国人，也是第一位使用这一乐器演奏爵士乐和摇滚乐 的音乐家。
张思安把这样一种大多数国人都没听说过的乐器玩出了花。2013 年，他发行了一张中阮合集。听着他操着一口还算流利的中文，缓缓弹着中国传统民族乐器，唱着简单朴实的中文歌词，真是一种神奇的体验。他还有许多有趣的个人项目，比如向 8-bit 致敬的《8 Bit Boy》，还有电琵琶实验专辑《试验电琵琶》。打开他的 BANDCAMP 主页，三十多张专辑让人眼花缭乱，在惊叹他的高产的同时，也惊异于他对于音乐可能性探索的执着和态度。
2013 年，他组建了一支新的乐队“张思安与乐队”（Djang San + Band），进行更广泛的音乐探索。这支乐队的风格很难被定义，它包含着车库、民谣、实验、爵士、电子、等等。
« Seoul Music Week » 并在日本出了一张 CD.
Ko is the pseudonym of Kristin Newborn: vocalist, guitarist, and downright badass. From the age of 18, Kristin was classically trained by a religious cult performing arts group in LA. No foolin’. But as fucked up as that experience must have been, Kristin emerged victorious. A native of Indianapolis and Chicago by way of Los Angeles, Kristin first began writing under the name Ko in the spring of 2012, after the demise of her first group Slothpop. Shortly thereafter she enlisted Todd Heaton to play percussion for the live shows and later recordings. KO has had many different line ups since, playing as full band with many talented rotating musicians. Her solo shows are just as captivating as she loops guitar and vocals making a glorious, euphoric wall of sound.
