Dresden hardcore lifers/Genjing alums, Sick Times, are busily duct taping their passports back together in preparation for their second jaunt through the Middle Kingdom, which kicks off right here in the Red Capital at School Bar this coming Thursday, May 1st!

We’re pretty sure most of the Chinese ear drums the band ruptured way back in 2012 have healed up enough by now that it’ll be auditorily safe enough for you and yours to endure/enjoy another round of these dudes bashing out quick bursts of rabid guitar aggression in some of the nation’s finest crack dens DIY venues. As an added bonus for us lucky Beijingers, the band will be sharing the stage at Temple Bar on Friday (5/1) with OG punk rock legends D.O.A and local street-punks, Gum Bleed! So yeah, seriously, cancel whatever other bullshit you had planned this Friday, people – you’d kick yourself (in a non-metaphorical sense, naturally) if you were to miss the melee that will undoubtedly be this gig.

Oh, speaking of Sick Times and Gum Bleed, we just happen to have a few copies of the nine track split 10” we unleashed upon the world a couple years back left in the warehouse, so be sure and hit the merch table once you escape the pit, ‘cuz once these limited edition curios are gone, they’re…you get where I’m going here.

Catch them live across the country…
