This is very interesting, great glimpse of the China live indie scene, with performance snippets and interviews with musicians and industry peeps.  Spotted on thruoutins fb.

The Wireless NZ:

What is touring really like for a band nobody’s heard of?

In this six-part series, music impresario Ian Jorgensen details his experiences of the musical underground around the world, speaking with musicians, promoters and venue operators in China, America, Europe, the UK, Australia and New Zealand.

Part one explores China, the behemoth on our front doorstep. It hasn’t always been on the radar for touring bands, but many are starting to see it as an affordable and exciting alternative to predictable destinations like the UK and US. Here Jorgensen finds a nascent music scene – one growing rapidly, in tandem with the Chinese economy.

Directed, Edited, Written by Ash Smith

Produced, Filmed, Written, Narrated by Ian Jorgensen of A Low Hum.

DEPOSIT ALL YER MONIEZ!!!!!!!

Why not a couple more dates in Canada? I mean, Montreal is not that far from Boston… And very musician-friendly!

—————-

SUBS to the US!
kanzi58 is bumming that yet another band is bypassing the true north strong and free. But I see on the tentative schedule at that kickstarter link that the band will bypass Houston, so I’m also out of luck.
We have lots of SUBS posts/links going back a few years; click the tag or search ‘subs’ from the main FYCI page.
