Good Beer週休八日 My 8 Day Weekend, and FranFran Chen?  

YES, PLEASE!    =D

Interesting that guitarist 江鎮宇 is not present. (Both he and Fran are in Frandé 法蘭黛樂團)  江鎮宇 is still listed as a member of My 8 Day Weekend.  We’ve seen musicians missing from certain gigs because they are busy with another band on the same day, but obviously there was no conflict with a Frandé gig.

Kane Wu YT has the full set uploaded, 6 clips in all.  Mumu is playing her acoustic gtr in all of the other songs.

旺福 WonFu was there, too:

Some fb catchup! Mumu Wang moved back to Taiwan in May, and 週休八日 My 8 Day Weekend had their first rehearsal yesterday!  Besides Mumu, it looks like Arny (bass), & 懿修 (drums) are back, and there’s a ‘mystery’ girl who is going to play keys. Any idea who that is?  They are gonna do a set […]

Mumu Mu-Chun Wang with Fran Fran Chen 法蘭 (Frandé 法蘭黛樂團) in Japan.  =D

Love-love-love that hypnotic My 8 Day Weekend 週休八日 song (last song)

Not sure how long the set was, but it seems Fran’s song was edited down to one verse. o.0   They speak to the audience in Japanese (Mumu), Chinese and English (Fran). 

There is a 3 minute interview with the girls HERE

Tokyo meeting:  ‘Mumu’ Mu-Chun Wang from My 8 Day Weekend 週休八日 and Kaiting 張凱婷 from Elephant Gym 大象體操.

If these 2 ever wanted to start a side project, that’d be a beautiful thing!   =D

There’s a clip of Kaiting singing & finger-tapping her bass posted by 奇肯音樂工作室 Chicken Music Studio in Taipei. She’s accompanied by Steven Ma 小馬 on percussion. 

Not sure when it was filmed, but they just posted it.  NICE!

Anniedora(安妮朵拉) just added this song (聰明的寂寞) to their available chord charts, in case anybody wanted to play along with their lovely tunes. They have at least 6 songs written out, just go to their fb.
I wish more bands did this kind of thing! Off the top of my head, I recall Mumu from My 8 Day Weekend doing a couple of easy-play video tutorials on her songs. And 麗麗 / LELE has a boatload of Ukelele tutorial clips on her YT channel. (mostly covers)
I’ll post the chord chart next…
