Excellent Eclectic Night at Beijing's Underground Showcase
An 8-hour event that featured almost everything; Mongolian folk, puppet theatre electronica, Americana, progressive, experimental and new rock, bass and drums
It was a rare chance to see a vast array of Beijing talent on one stage at the first Beijing Underground Showcase on January 24th at DDC (Dawn Dusk Club). As is typical for pretty much any music scene, bands tend to perform with the same acts and groups of similar genre, sound and/or crowd. Not in this case.
Beijing Underground Showcase put all of the major music sounds and players in a blender and came up with an 8-hour event that featured almost everything; Mongolian folk, puppet theatre electronica, Americana, progressive, experimental and new rock, bass and drums: it was all there and then some.
The crowd was equally diverse, too. From old-school hippies to punk rockers to DJ's to hipsters and with a crowd ranging in an age range from 4-70, yes indeed, this was one heck of a mixer. The DDC club is architecturally stunning, with a mix of old Beijing hutong style and modern lounge coolness. It fit the bill
This amazing event was organized by Beijing's musical magi, Djang San. He shared the idea behind it all in an interview with me stating, "I had the idea of creating a music festival in Beijing for a very long time when I started this group on Facebook called "Beijing Underground" and a website www.beijing-underground.com. I did interviews of people behind the scenes in the Beijing Underground. When the group on Facebook reached 5000 people, I realized I had now the opportunity to let more people know about the scene in China and Asia and that I could turn this into something real."
WHAI, Tulegur, Djang San + Band, Luv Plastik, The Honky Tonk Demons, Ravi and the shadows and Metoo all under one roof, for one event? That was so real it was surreal. I cannot wait for Beijing Underground Showcase #2.
