On January 22nd, 2010, they performed in the Mao Livehouse Shanghai. According to Andy Best: Ourself Beside Me played a good set. The sound was the most intact of the four acts and they did a solid job after a few months off the gig circuit. The audience seemed into them too despite their experimental sound not usually being for everyone. Good for the audience. On February 27th, they performed in the D-22. According to Alex of Beijing Gig Guide: As soon as they took the stage, though, draining their beers before they started to play, I knew I was in for a good show. While they were themselves fairly low-energy, their music is much more energetic than their recorded songs might have you believe. On April 24th, they performed at the 2 Kolegas. According to Beijing Gig Guide:As last I saw them, it was a tight set. They weren’t as low-energy as they were last time, with the lead singer looking around the crowd with wide, accusing eyes as she sang. On July 17th, 2010, they performed at the Qingyuan Niu Yu Zui Festival 2010. July 30th, they performed during the Zippo Hot List 3 at the Yugong Yishan. According to Beijing Daze: Next up was Ourself Beside Me who came onstage as a duo!!! No idea where the Bassist Xiehan was but the band still went on and played most of their songs with drums and guitar.. kinda like a toddler kid of the white stripes. (...) not their best show! The bass was definitely missing but at least, singer/guitarist Yangfan ( former Hang On The Box) didn’t look like she was holding the audience responsible for the evils that befall the world. On August 21st, they performed during the Max Star Music Festival in the Ditan Park. According to Beijing Gig Guide: Despite the brevity of their set, I still enjoyed their sound. Their performance, on the other hand, was on its way to boring. I’ll probably stick to their CDs for these girls from now on.
