5. Rock out
Shumking Mansion, Live Music Association
The wildcard of Macau’s buzzing entertainment scene, Live Music Association (LMA), founded in 2008 by a bunch of like-minded individuals—musicians, sound technicians, graphic designers, artists and the like—is all things alternative. This Saturday, make the scene with Hong Kong indie band Shumking Mansion (see video), who play dance rock and synth pop with a psychedelic energy, and French nostalgists Le Groupe Électrogène Fanfare Club. While LMA is not a large venue—audiences are limited to about 150—it’s the concentrated space, as well as a programme that has never once paid heed to conformity, that keeps the place humming at top volume.September 22
