Split Works Presents: Destroyer Live in Beijing

Split Works Presents_ Destroyer Live in Beijing

Welcome to Destroyer. It’s the quirkiest zip code in indie rock land. It’s the gloriously vintage town that changes itself completely every few years. Come on in. Stay a while and listen. Don’t be fooled by the grumpiness, because there’s plenty of insight hidden between the sumptuous melancholy.

“Destroyer is indie rock’s most rewarding intellectual project.” – Pitchfork

Dan Bejar’s Destroyer are ones of the smartest bands around.
A restless, oddball bunch who write “heady, intoxicating songs” (NOW). Songs with strings and horns and piano, like Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band reborn on the Internet. An artist in “complete control of the strange chaos around him” (AV Club).

They’re playing a very special gig at Beijing’s Yugong Yishan on April 16, before playing the fourth in our Contemporale series, co-presented with the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, in Shanghai on April 17.

Supporting them in Beijing will be Uncle Hu, with cozy, whispery little nostalgia-drenched songs of their own.

When: 16 April 2016 Sat 21:00
Where: Yugong Yishan
Price: RMB 120/150
