I recently posted the Facebook event page and Eventbrite ticketing link for the next Save Music in Chinatown DIY benefit for music education at Castelar Elementary on Sunday, May 31 at the Grand Star. The all-ages matinee will feature my friends Dengue Fever, who used Cambodian garage rock as a launching pad and have crafted their own mind-blowing, genre-crushing, and danceable brand of music. Joining them will be very special guests, underground, psychedelic, and experimental rockers from Beijing, Birdstriking (featuring a He Fan from Carsick Cars), Chui Wan (in the country for the Austin Psych Fest), and a special set by Deadly Cradle Death (featuring members of Birdstriking and Chui Wan). As if that weren’t enough, DJ Loud Panda (Ricky from Brian Jonestown Massacre) will be playing killer Chinese rock in between bands. Rad!
Read more about the lineup at http://www.imprintculturelab.com/announcing-save-music-in-chinatown-6-dengue-fever-birdstriking-chui-wan-deadly-cradle-death/ and then get tickets if you’re down. I fully expect it to sell out.
