School Live Bar , 53 Wudaoying Hutong Sat 14 Nov 2015 Free

This event has now passed.

The latest free gig in the Converse Rubber Tracks Live series sees the recently-re-tooled Hang on the Box, credited with being China’s first all-girl punk band, headlining. Having formed in 1998 with a Ramones-esque sound, the band wound down after 2007 with singer Gia continuing the legacy with sporadic relaunches.

The latest such relaunch sees the band newly swelled to a five-piece and no longer an all-girl group, with Gia the only original member remaining. However, recent Beijing gigs have seen the band show off an impressively dense sound that suggests a future that both celebrates the past and justifies striving for a future.

See our interview with Gia, singer and founder of Hang on the Box.
