huMP3 is a new feature here on cqscene, where every(or most) Wednesdays we give you free music from artists either from, or who will be performing in Chongqing, or the surrounding area.
This, our first installment of huMP3 day, we have a lot to offer, as this weekend in Chongqing has something, seemingly, for everyone.

Being the only act of the weekend I can vouch for, I highly recommend checking 'em out... that is if you can find Baroque Bar.
To cap off the weekend we head back to Nuts Club on Sunday for one of the biggest names in the Chinese rock scene, Miserable Faith. Always a hit with the locals, the Beijing metal/hardcore outfit is guaranteed to stir up some sweaty moshing.
"Anyone interested in reading about China's indie music scene should, among other things, go to www.kungfuology.com... It is there(on Jake's blog) that I found this. The China Mix Tape. Featuring some of the best and most 'renowned' Chinese artists as well as some of the most promising up-and comers..." [read on]
