Photos: Egon on tour with Madlib, China 2013

Now-Again | Feb. 25, 2013 | Photographs |

Last week, we posted photos from the Japanese portion of Egon and Madlib’s 2013 Asian Tour. Here are the photos from China: where the only records to be found are in a plastic recycling plant two hours south of Shanghai; where the smog is so hazy it hurts to breathe; where – in Chengdu, in the heart of Szechuan – the chicken heart and stomach dish is so spicy hurts to eat (but the rabbit, blackened with Szechuan peppercorns, is just fine); where – in Beijing, of course – Peking Duck is better than anywhere; where – at Shelter, in Shanghai – there exists one of the current best nightclubs in the world, where hundreds of Chinese folks and a smattering of ex-pats proved they could get down with all of the psychedelic sounds that you’d expect at a Madlib Medicine Show tour stop.
