RDC or 彩虹危险俱乐部 is a Shanghai-based progressive indie rock quartet. Combining elements of experimental, indie-pop, post-rock, progressive, and electronica, their music has been featured on a handful of international mixtapes and podcasts and their bombastic and colourful stage-presence makes them one of the Mainland's most sought-after live acts. RDC recently completed a 13-city tour of the United States of America and are working on a new full-length album.

All the members of Rainbow Danger Club are school teachers. Though all American citizens, they all met in Shanghai and are long-term residents of China.
