The best live music in Shanghai this week

Your guide to the best gigs in Shanghai this week

DFG go AV at MSL this weekend
It's a tale of two new music venues this weekend as the new iterations of Yuyintang and On Stage get well and truly put through their paces. The former's Yuyintang Park opened last weekend with New Noise's Scandie showcase, but this weekend brings the arrival of METZ, a somewhat different proposition and a great excuse to check out the new digs beside Zhongshan Park. Meanwhile down in southern Xuhui, On Stage's second coming is taking things a little more low-key, but is offering up a free live band show from Shanghai techno don MHP.

Elsewhere, there's rapper Tizzy T releasing his new album, Jane Zhang doing her pop princess thing in Pudong, Dirty Fingers getting down and dirty at MAO, and a visit from Beijing grunge act Jajatao.

More details on those shows and all the gigs not to miss below - and don't forget that you can find even more live music shows in Shanghai right here.
