When: Saturday, June 29. After midnight ’til dawn.
In preparation for Not There’s May 4th show at Temple Bar, Polly Pollen went for a quiet ramble through the Beijing Hutongs. Bedlam ensued. Here are some choice snaps. Stay tuned for Polly Pollen’s adventures at Strawberry.

Dear Chinese Musicians:
I know you guys admire “Western Music” a lot. It’s cool that you’re inspired by what’s happening globally. From Joy Division to the Stones to the String Cheese Incident, I’ve seen Chinese bands bearing the all the hallmarks of inspiration: hairstyles, clothing, equipment and so on.
It’s cool. We all steal from what we love. I have no shame about copping the best parts of the Dead & LCD Soundsystem. However, I would like to offer you some advice.
Sing in Chinese.
Here are a few reasons why:
I’m not trying to be mean, I’m just being honest. If you sing in Chinese, your lyrics will be better, the timbre of your voice will improve and you will be taken more seriously.
Please sing in Chinese. It’s a nice language and it deserves rock & roll too.
