Residence A: As always you guys were amazing.

My September: Your set was monumental, the band sounded like one big, crazy tripped out instrument.

Pacalolo: Disco.

Media Peeps: A special thanks to everyone who helped us get our message out.

No Filler Acoustic Showcase: Sunday September 2nd at School Bar

Not There might be an “electro-rock” band but we have deep roots in acoustic music. I’m guessing most of y’all don’t know that Nick & I backed up roots music stalwart Randy Abel for his 1st ever Beijing show, but it’s true!

We thought No Filler would be the perfect reason to showcase one of our favorite acoustic bands in Beijing: the Ring Road Ramblers. The Ramblers are a traditional bluegrass trio featuring Banjo, Guitar, Mandolin and high / lonesome harmonies.

So if bluegrass is your thing, join us this Sunday Night at School Bar for an evening of bluegrass.

Oh yeah, we almost forgot, there’s some kinda strange eating contest thing going on too. It involves hot dogs, bao zi and a (friendly) Chinese v. Foreigner challenge.

Intrigued? The show starts at 7:30…

No Filler Is A Concert

Ok everyone. We’ve had a lot of fun with the rumors about the show, but it’s time to spill the beans.

No Filler is a special concert we’re putting on at Yugongyishan on September 15th.

We’re calling it No Filler because we’re dedicated to the idea of putting on show with the bands we like the best. It’s not about who’s the biggest draw, or who’s popular at the moment. It’s simply the music we enjoy the most.

No Filler is about Not There playing a show with bands that we love to go see. Bands that we dance to. Bands that we think are doing really interesting things.

The first 2 bands we’re announcing are Pacalolo & My September.

To be blunt, My September isn’t famous or cool, they’re just fucking awesome. We played a show with them last Spring and were totally blown away by the intensity and intelligence of their set.  I will go on record and say that it was the best set of music I’ve ever seen in Beijing. We’re really excited to hear how their massive sound translates to the big stage at Yugongyishan.

Pacalolo is someone we’ve had our eyes on for a great long while. Our first encounter with their music came at the No. 6 practice space buried deep in the heart of Gulou’s hutongs. While taking a break from some serious jamming, our ears were peaked by the sound slinking out of the next room. It was a catchy mix of pop, disco & rock. And it was very sexy. We’ve been looking forward to playing with Pacalolo ever since we heard them rehearsing and we danced our assess off to their sassy, dance-punk set at the Beijinger New Music Festival. I know they’re going to turn Yugongyishan into a d.d.d. Disco.

So the first 2 cats are out of the bag, check back tomorrow to find out who’ll be co-headlining No Filler with Not There.
