YouTube Presents, the site’s exclusive concert series, has been around for just under a year and half. In that time, they’ve hosted performances from Taylor Swift, Florence + The Machine, Common, The Shins, Justin bieber, and Blondie. Today, YouTube is announcing the next band that will be featured on the series.

Mayday, a five-piece alternative rock band from Taiwan will perform at YouTube HQ on Wednesday, November 28th at 7pm PT. Mayday will be the first ever Chinese-speaking band to perform as part of the YouTube Presents series.

If you like what you hear, you can enter to join the band in a Google+ Hangout following the concert:

“After the concert at 8:30pm PT, Mayday will hold a Hangout with fans on Google+. To get a chance at joining this Hangout, post a question you want to ask the band with the tag #HangoutsWithMayday on Google+. Seven lucky fans will be invited to participate,” says YouTube.

Mayday has sold over one million albums and is one of the most popular bands in Chinese rock.

You can check out the livestream on the YouTube Presents channel.
