Live Wire: Rock the concrete jungle

By Alita Rickards  /  Contributing reporter

2013 Urban Nomad Opening Party from 7:30pm tomorrow at Building 3 East A (3東A ), Huashan 1914 Creative Park (華山1914), 1, Bade Rd Sec 1, Taipei City (台北市八德路一段1號). Admission is NT$800 at the door or NT$650 in advance. On the Net:

■ Also this weekend, Nashville’s May Hwen will be playing at Roxy Rocker tomorrow with rock band Reid supporting her. The half-Taiwanese, half-American artist recorded two full-length albums this year, Strait Push and Under Control. With definite influences from Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and some edgy lyrics — I particularly liked “I am the loaded gun” — Hwen mirrors the newer trends in rock and roll.

May Hwen with Reid at 8pm tommorrow at Roxy Rocker, 177, Heping E Rd Sec 1, Taipei City (台北市和平東路一段177號). Admission is free.

■ For those in the mood for something a little more mellow, Taipei Artist Village is hosting acoustic modern English folk singer and guitarist Megan Dooley with backup harmony vocals by Rachel McPhail. The Taichung-based duo will play a blend of Dooley’s originals and covers.

Megan Dooley and Rachel McPhail from 9pm to 11pm tonight at Taipei Artist Village (台北國際藝術村), 7 Beiping E Rd, Taipei City (台北市北平東路7號). Admission is NT$300 and includes one drink.
