Summer is just about over and it’s time to bring in this year’s fresh harvest – and Live Beijing Music and DDC have reaped and prepared some of this year’s hottest new acts, as well as a couple old favorites to welcome in the autumn with a rocking good show – LBM presents Autumn Harvest Fest. On board we have established punk stalwarts Gum Bleed, known for their rallying calls and take downs of society – a must see live act for any Beijinger. Also on the bill, are visiting post rock outfit Spin Axis, making the trip from Shijiazhuang, whose full-bodied, gut-busting brand of post rock has made them a band to look out for. Fresh on the scene this year are shoegaze psychedelic rockers Last Goodbye, who despite having less than a dozen shows under their belt, have proved themselves worthy – expect to be hearing about these kids a lot in the upcoming year. One of the year\’s hottest acts, math rock instrumentalists Rhonda, join as well bringing their kinetic, gut bursting sound to our ears. Finally, grunge revisonists JaJaTao, who just released their wonderfully realized debut, will bring their dark, atmospheric, and mesmerizing performance to the stage. It\’s a packed bill full of electric sounds, dreamy riffs, and manic energy – and the perfect way to kick off the Autumn season!!
Date: Saturday, September 3rd 9月3日 8pm
Where: DDC (Shanlao Hutong NO.14, Dongcheng District)

Gum Bleed (Punk)
Gum Bleed is one of the youngest and most striking punk rock bands to emerge from the Beijing, China since 2006. With their energetic live performances and intelligent lyrics combined with fast and catchy music, they\’ve quickly won over the Chinese punk rock scene as well as the punk scene aboard.
Last Goodbye (Psychedelic/Shoegaze)
Established just this past year, neo-psychedelic outfit, with more than a heavy dash of shoegaze, have been receiving stellar reviews from their live sets, even earning their opening slots for touring bands. Prepared to be surprised and perhaps find one of the year\’s hottest new acts.
JaJaTao (Grunge/Alt Rock/Trash)
Dark and alluring, haunting and beautiful, the grunge revisonists, who mix Chinese opera, folklore and musical flourishes into their work, are hell bent on igniting the rock and roll scene in China, and after their stellar debut (produced by one-time Radiohead producer Sean Slade) they just might.
Rhonda (Math Rock)
