METRO TOKYO & FRIENDS w ANDY ROURKE (THE SMITHS) DJ SET Support: Compact Dicks + special guest Thursday May 15, 2014 @ Dada, Beijing. 80RMB After an insane anniversary party last month METRO TOKYO returns to DADA with a true legend. Similiar to PETER HOOK from NEW ORDER, Andy Rourke has created some of the most memorable basslines of all time (including The Smiths´ THIS CHARMING MAN ). When he met JOHNNY MARR in school back in MANCHESTER they, discovered punk and shared the same rehearsal space with JOY DIVISION and THE BUZZCOCKS. In 1982 he got a call from Marr to invite him to become bass player of THE SMITHS. After The Smiths split in 1987 he went on to play and record with people like MORRISSEY, SINEAD O’ CONNOR, THE PRETENDERS, BADLY DRAWN BOY, and AZIZ IBRAHIM. He now has reinvented himself as a top-tier DJ, producer, tastemaker and radio personality showcasing the very best in music past, present and future. Don´t miss the opportunity to see one of the most influential bassplayers of all time to host an unforgettable DJ set in the intimate setting of Dada.
