Last Friday, at Yuyintang.
Cold Fairyland was a name often dropped whenever I happen to read something about the Shanghai rock scene, which I later found out to be justified. Shades of Lisa Germano with Dead Can Dance right there.
I saw Second during their soundcheck. Lovely girls playing spunky pop-rock, I couldn’t wait for the show. During their set though, it seemed like they skipped a song or two, and didn’t seem to enjoy themselves as much. Nevertheless, they are on my list.
Third time to see Candy Shop. Probably the de-facto party-band for the pop-rock crowd.
