Utopian-Bands—rock concert

 

“Utopian-Bands” was a performance work on July 14, 2006, that staged a public concert at 2kolegas club in Beijing involving six Chinese rock bands. These bands were CarSickCars, Glamorous Pharmacy (Meihaoyaodian), Hang On The Box, Mafeisan, Naza, and ReTros.

This initiative concluded work begun with the “Mao Songs” project in 2005. The concert celebrated Beijing rock bands as the return of the repressed, as microcosmic utopian communities once stifled by a Chinese Communism focused on national social reorganization.
