Fuzhou Gig Forecast: Agnes Kain, Dustin O’Halloran and More!

Rock n’ roll may not be the first thing that springs to mind when you think of Fuzhou, but luckily for those who live there, the city hasn’t been forgotten about by touring foreign bands. In the next few months, three fantastic musical acts have confirmed gigs at Straitrock Livehouse (海峡摇滚酒吧, a.k.a. Haiyao Bar).

1) Egil Olsen (Norway)View In Map

A Norwegian singer/songwriter, Egil Olsen has been enjoying great success in his Scandinavian homeland, winning over fans with his charismatic live performances and simple, yet moving lyrics. Between managing his own record label Iknowwhatyoudidlastrecords, getting married, “finding” himself in L.A. and teaching his dog how to say hello, Egil managed to release a sparkling new record “Nothing Like the Love I Have for You” a few months ago. This upcoming gig has all the hallmarks of an intimate, yet highly memorable gig.
