Each week, we will bring your attention to 5 events that will break your boredom, and get you moving throughout the city.

While many of us are waiting to be romanced on Chinese Valentine’s Day, or for McGreggor to knock out Mayweather (commence the trash talking), you can check out any of these events in the meantime.  

1. Yang Liping Ballet – Peacock of Winter In Guangzhou

3. Swedish Pop-Rock Band The Royal Concept China Tour Shenzhen Station

The Swedish Band, The Royal Concept, will be in Shenzhen.

 

So what does a smile sound like? Well, given its sun-soaked flavor, upbeat swing, and uncontainable energy, The Royal Concept’s second EP, Smile [LAVA/Republic Records], could very well answer that.

The Swedish quartet—David Larson [vocals], Filip Bekic [guitar], Magnus Robert [bass], and Frans Povel [drums]—first achieved worldwide attention with their viral hit “D-D-Dance.” In 2013, the track hit #2 on Hype Machine, while its follow-ups “Gimme Twice” and ”World on Fire” reached #3 and #1 respectively.

After finding the style that brings that “uncontainable energy” out from their live performances, they are ready to bring it to Shenzhen. Don’t miss the unrestrained and soulful blend of these artists this Friday, 25 August.
