When I set out to organize ‘dazeFEAST last year in June, I had absolutely no idea it turn into a gigantic party with over 800 people showing up at 2 Kolegas on a sunny June afternoon. I also had no idea that Beijing would grace us with such a beautiful day considering that the previous Thursday, the city was flooded beyond belief with cars literally floating about the streets. ‘dazeFEAST was so mind-blowing that i figured it best to just make it a one off and keep the memories.
As the months went by and people asked, my answer stayed the same: No Way… It Ain’t gonna be the same…. too mafan…
An then I thought better of it… ‘dazeFEAST was about celebration, friends, music, good times and just partying it out with my music buddies in my favorite venue in town! It’s got no standards to live-up to and as long as myself and the musicians are there, we have enough people to drink the bar empty! So guess what folks? for the third year anniversary of the blog
You’ve asked! They’ve asked!

From Beijing Daze: Most of this blog’s readers are rooted in rock n roll so you might not know who Miao Wong is and I’m here to tell you she’s an awesome person carrying on her shoulders the weight of a different type of underground music in Beijing:
Miao has been a stalwart of this city’s electronic scene: founding member of Acupuncture Records, and fixture at White Rabbit, Lantern and supporter of local EDM artists no matter what label they’re on or where they perform. Last week, she was admitted to hospital preceding the removal of a brain tumor, which will happen this Friday.
To help out with the costs involved with a three-week hospital stay and brain surgery, the friends she’s made in Beijing are rallying together and hosting a party at Lantern on April 6. Dubbed Party For The Awesome Miao, all of the ticket sales will go towards hospital fees, and you’ll get to dance to some of the best names in EDM - DJ Weng Weng, Elvis.T, Chozie, Patrick Yu and Saul D.

I might not be the biggest fan of electronic music but those guys have their work cut out for them and Miao is leading the charge with smile, even from her hospital bed!!! and that is Rock n Roll.
