Trash A Go-Go night coming up

TRASH A Go-Go is the monthly tribute to rock and roll at Yuyintang live house and coming up on November 19 will be the Japanese funk band The Bait Ones, also known as The Cramps of Kobe, known for its chaotic shows.

The Bait Ones or Cramps was formed in 1997 and inspired by American psychobilly bands. They will promote their three-way-split album "Demonic Freak Scene," which also features the Shanghai-based Banana Monkey and the Macaronians.

Based in Shanghai, party band The Macaronians features Toshi (Toshihiro Kanamaki), the former bassist of the Beat Bandits. It plays material influenced by 1960s bands like Barry & The Remains and Eric Burdon & the Animals.

The Shanghai indie superstar rock Banana Monkey took a hiatus in 2009, inspiring many bands in the city to try to take their crown. Han Han of Duck Fight Goose cited guitarist Misuzu's influence, calling him a legend. Now they're back. With a sheen pop/garage rock sound similar to Franz Ferdinand, the band is set to snatch back its crown.

DJ B.O. (Brian Offenther) based in Shanghai spins rock music, mostly from artists people don't care about, like Big Joe Turner, Paul Revere & The Raiders and Katy Perry.

Definitely he wants you to dance to his music: "Funky elbow grease. My sensitive Shanghai skin is being exposed to the cool sea breeze of fall in Shanghai. I'll do like it should be done: twistin', kickin', livin'-livin'-livin' all the way down."

Date: November 19, 10pm

Venue: Yuyintang (851 Kaixuan Rd by Yan'an Rd W.)

Tickets: 40 yuan (US$6) /30 yuan for students
