Live music in China

During the question and answer portion of the afternoon class, the topic of live music in China was brought up.  I mentioned this tour footage of Brooklyn-based hardcore band Birthday Boyz and their 2007 tour of China under legally questionable circumstances.  The footage documents quite possibly the first tour of China by a non-approved American band, and certainly the first tour of China by a band of this subculture.  The footage is in two parts, and it may be useful to those of you blogging about music or related topics, or it may just be interesting to you as it presents a side of China not seen by outsiders in an entertaining way.
