Minimalist lo-fi duo the Dyne will make their Shanghai debut on Sat, Apr 20 at Uptown Records at a showcase that doubles as both a RSD bash and the official release party for their new seven-inch on Genjing Records, Swim. Fly Roots.
And if a free film screening is more your style, head over to 390 for the Wooozy Community Film Special: Last Shop Standing screening at 2pm.
► Apr 20，2pm, 390 Live, No. 390 Panyu Rd. (nr. Fahuazhen Rd.), FREE
Starting at 2pm, Shanghai folks can look forward to merchandise tables with vinyl, clothing, food, tasty beverages and other good stuff from a variety of local creative firms, labels and vendors. Performances by the Dyne, Pairs, Himdong, Reykjavictim and Goooose will begin at 3:30pm.
Concert-goers will also receive a complimentary copy of Swim. Fly Roots, a localized RSD shirt and other fun stuff. If you enjoy DIY cassette tapes (or if you’re pining away for a throwback to the more innocent middle school mixtape days of old), local label and Uptown Records ally SVBCVLT will be releasing a pair of limited edition tapes.
► Uptown Records, Apr.20, 2pm, 50RMB (includes free vinyl)
