PANGBIANR FIFTH ANNIVERSARY PARTY

PBR 5 Years Anniversary

If you’re not quite as proficient as you’d like with regard to deciphering Chinese characters, the above image just happens to be a flyer for a party you’re not going to want to miss out on for several terribly solid reasons. First of which, our good buddies at pangbianr are turning five years old. There’s going to be a big ‘ol Xi Yang Yang cake, a bouncy castle, a dude making at least eight different types of balloon animals, a full-on creepy clown and everything! Not really though. What there will be are live sets from a whole slew of artists we’ve either directly worked with or greatly appreciate, including Xiao Hong & Xiao Xiao Hong, Shi Lu (Hedgehog), Josh Frank (Hot & Cold), a “secret special guest band” and notably, a rare performance by experimentalist extraordinaire Yang Fan, whose debut LP just happened to drop last month, courtesy of, well, us: Genjing Records. When framed in the right light, this is kind of a belated, unofficial record release party of sorts, too. A definite double whammy if there ever was one, right?! Anyway, we’ll be there yucking it up and slinging merch, so be sure and stop by for a hello session in-between sets while you shake it to sounds of Compact Dicks, who’ll be manning the wheels of plastic ‘til the wee hours. The fun kicks off 8:30pm at the (sadly) soon to be shuttered XP tomorrow evening. That’s Wednesday, June 10th if you want to get all technical about it. If you’re in Beijing, don’t sleep on this one, folks! It’ll totally be worth the groggy feeling you may or may not experience at your place of work the following morning…
