Rocking bands before wrecking balls

Yugong Yishan goes out with a bang, and some twang, and lots of bass and guitar licks, courtesy of some local bands – upcoming shows include shaka rock on July 14, which marks France’s national day (as the poster below puts it, “Don’t lose your head”), and blues outfit Black Cat Bone on July 21.

“It’s our last performance at Yugong Yishan before the wrecking ball comes down,” says Black Cat Bone singer Desmond McGarry. “It’s special for us since Yugong Yishan is really where we started to play regularly as a working band.”

I recently saw Black Cat Bone play under the most trying of conditions, so – wrecking balls or not – expect these cats to put on a good show.
