DDC’s has been secretly getting its freak on as of late and I’m loving every second of it. It’s not often you stumble into a venue Tuesday night to have your brain smashed to pieces but that’s exactly what happened when I stopped by the joint for a peek. The special occasion was the release of a book from local author and illustrator Xiong Liang whose book Searching for the Darkness is definitely worth checking out. And based on the event, she has a swell group of friends as the night turned out to host an eclectic lineup of some of the experimental, avant-grade, and underground scene’s most talked about performers including Xiao He, who joined a cast of characters for a sublime jam session (I’ve never seen so many girls rush to the front of a stage before), MC Dawei, fresh off the release of his stellar debut album, Hong Qile, whose anime glitch-filled visual-audio set had me in awe, and DJ Strausss, who essentially is the madhatter doppelganger of Girltalk.
Great sets, great vibes, and another off-weekend success from DDC. More pics and vids below.
