Chinese Indie is Coming to a City Near You!


The cute drummer of Hedgehog

Not near me unfortunately, but some of you guys might be able to see them.

I love Modern Sky too too much. It’s the biggest indie label in China, and not only does it now have two successful indie music festivals in China, but it’s also bringing its acts to the States. Their bands 刺猬 Hedgehog, 赌鬼 Casino Demon, & 后海大鲨鱼 Queen Sea Big Shark are in America for the Sing For China Tour,  to benefit children orphaned by AIDS.

Click here for the tour dates and see if they are going to a city near you. There are also links to download their music on the site.

Here’s a video of Hedgehog. They are one of my favorite Chinese indie bands, simply because they were one of the first I knew of. And because the drummer is adorable. I am so jealous of everyone who can go, and I expect hear your accounts of how it went, because I need to need vicariously through you guys.
