On Thursday, one of my favourite local bands, Young Chinese Dogs, are playing The Atomic Cafe. On Friday, they’re releasing their latest album, Farewell to Fate, and you can check out their newest songs a day in advance at the party.

On Friday and Saturday, there’s a fantastic festival going on at the Gasteig. Digitalanalog 11 is entirely free, and focuses on the best of alternative music and culture. Bavarian band A Home. A Heart. Whatever are playing, one band I can highly recommend.
