David O'Dell was there for the birth of the punk scene in Beijing, and today he presents his new book "Inseparable" as part of a massive celebration of the early scene. Not only is this a book talk, photo exhibition and charity auction, there'll also be performances from old school punk groups A-Boys, Catcher In The Rye, Gao Wei (lead singer of Underbaby) and Mi San Dao, as well as new kids Rustic, the Flyx, and Discord. While the bands play inside, legends from the scene will be DJing their favorite tunes outside on the lawn. There will also be food vendors and merch stalls with events going all day, so come early and party til late! All proceeds go to Half the Sky Children's Orphanage. RMB80 (door), RMB60 (advance).
Auction & Photo Exhibit
During the show we will hold an auction packed with rare Chinese punk rock memorabilia. All proceeds from the auction and book sales go to charity, with matching funds from our compassionate sponsors like Gung Ho Films and many more. Items like Brain Failure's first-ever demo tape, a pink 7-inch vinyl album of the Wuliao Jundui bands before they were signed to Scream Records, and of course plenty of autographed rare items from the bands themselves. Don't miss out on this opportunity to grab your own piece of Chinese punk rock history!
During the auction item preview, take a step back in time and watch a digital photo exhibit of the earliest Beijing punk rock bands presented by the photographers themselves, Katharina Hesse and Wang Di.
