Papier Tigre performs in Qingdao at the Redstar in Creative 100 on June 24, 2011. The French trio is named after a traditional phrase in Chinese, Zhi Laohu (纸老虎), referring to something or someone with a tough appearance actually made of a flimsy substance. Chairman Mao used this phrase to describe the US in the 1950’s. Check out the band on Myspace, Douban, and on Tudou.
