The USA Pavilion announced on July 29 that local New York indie rock band PaperDoll will be traveling to Shanghai next week to perform on the USA Pavilion and America Square stages.

The band's debut performance is on Aug. 5 at 9 p.m. in Shanghai's Yuyintang, No. 851 Kai Xuan Rd. The band is also scheduled to perform at an international evening gala named FREXH 2010 featuring emerging talents and creators from the music, fashion, arts, and food and beverage industries. Their gala performance will be followed by a two-day performance in the Expo Park.

From New York City, PaperDoll's high-energy live shows, featuring an uninhibited front woman style, have secured them a cult following in the dance rock scene. Their new song "Anything At All," sung in Mandarin, recently won the band acclaim from Kollaboration NY, a contest showcasing Asian-American and Pacific Islander talent in 10 major U.S. cities.

The quartet, comprised of Teresa Lee, on vocals/keyboard; Patrick Moloney, guitar; Steve Paelet and Chip Thomas (drums), has been featured on MTV, The Today Show, Maxim Radio and Blender Magazine. Their debut album "Ballad Nerd Pop" will be released in 2010 and brings them to China on their six-day Global Citizens Tour starting Aug. 5.

At over 60,000 square feet (6,000 square meters), the USA Pavilion is one of the largest national pavilions at the Expo. With the theme of "Rising to the Challenge," the U.S. presence showcases American culture, values, innovation and business in one of China's most dynamic cities while celebrating the friendship and cooperation between the United States, China and the rest of the world.
