This month, the DIY mini-festival that bled your ears dry and left you begging for more last November is back, and it's going to be rocking Harley's (your new favorite dive) once per month. Yup, Rat On Swamp Dog is back! After fixing up Harley's and hosting some of the rowdiest gigs of the year, it's now becoming a regular thing. Let's hope this can become a staple of the live scene the same way that the Sunday Live shows have!
Here's Nate with more:
On the last Saturday of every month Rat On will bring you some of Shanghai's best bands, with visiting bands from all over China and guests from overseas. All for 40rmb.
So here we have it Rat On Monthly's first show, and what a slamming line up we have.
First off is Hu Jia Hu Wei straight off the back from their awesome Coaster album, a 5 track recording of awesomeness and pure energy. Don't miss out folks as this will be the last time you get to see these boys play.
Then its Shanghai's and if not China's best hardcore band Spill Your Guts, who have also just finished a split ep with Russian heavy weights Broken Fist.
These guys are such a mental powerhouse on stage, and will be super hyped after their south east Asian tour. They absolutely nailed it at Rat On Swamp Dog, being my personal favorite.
And the last and as they say certainly not least is the fantastic Goushen. And if you have not seen these guys and girls in a while you must come check out their new songs. They are brutal, some of the best songs going around town at the moment.
