Drawing influences from 80s synth-pop and American culture, London duo Summer Camp (consisting of multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Warmsley and vocalist Elizabeth Sankey) makes nostalgically sweet indie pop that reminds you of John Hughes films.
Back in the 90s, Joey Ou was one of the pioneers of the city’s indie boom. He’s been around for 20 years and is now celebrating the launch of his first English album “Alternate Reality” with a gig at the Fringe Club.
Johnny Hallyday is an icon. The "French Elvis" has been around for the last five decades and is one of the best-selling musicians in his home country. The gig is sold out, but it's not too late for you to beg, borrow and steal. Le-huh-huh.
Beijing folk musicians Xiao He and Zhou Yunpeng come to town for this gig. Xiao He is known for his improvisational gigs, in which he combines instruments, chanting and opera. Zhou, who has been blind since the age 9, plays the guitar and backs it up with a deep, haunting voice. How fitting, then, that the show name is "Sing Like [an] Alien."
