Rynostock, Shunyi’s longest-running (and perhaps only) music festival, is once again pulling out all the stops to raise funds for the Shepherd’s Field Children’s Village tonight (Friday) and tomorrow at The Garage.
Put together with the help of the Mad Dogs Motorcycle Club, the family-friendly event’s proceeds will go to Shepherd’s Field, which arranges medical care, foster care, education and permanent adoptions for special needs orphans of all ages in China.
This will be the 10th anniversary of the two-day event and the action kicks off tonight at 7:30 with a lineup ska/punk/metal theme that features the following bands:
End of the World (7:45pm)
the Beijinger Beijing Cover band nominees Bastards of Imperialism (8:05pm)
Metallica tribute band Harvesters of Sorrow (9:10pm)
The party starts up again on Saturday at 1pm with a day-long series of concerts, this time with a more pop/rock theme featuring the following acts:
the Beijinger Beijing Cover band nominees Strange Visitations
the Beijinger Beijing Cover band nominees The Beijing Beatles
Entrance is free, with raffle tickets and food being sold for charity (donations will be accepted as well).
Best yet, you can score some cool Mad Dog tee shirts and merchandise that will be a perfect memento to bring to friends back home when you’re on your summer sojourn.
In true Shunyi fashion, the event is family-friendly and open to all ages.
The Garage is located on Yuyang Lu, just on the other side of the Wenyu River, 100 meters east of the south gate of Capital Paradise. For those traveling from downtown, they arranged free shuttle buses for Saturday, leaving from the north gate of Workers’ Stadium at 12pm, 1:30pm, 3pm, 4:30pm and 6pm, and returning at 10pm and midnight.
