Sonic Youth in China

It is amazing if it is true. What kind of reception you think they will be getting in China? Once they get into their brand of guitar noise fest, are people going to walk out on them? I guess it has to do with who will be attending the 'biggest rock festival'. I don't know much about the scene in China, much less Chengdu. It  takes an acquired taste to appreciate Sonic youth. It is not likely all of a sudden people go crazy on them in a rock festival intended for mainstream audiance, even in the US, I don't think.

I checked out Faye Wang based on discussion earlier in this thread. It didn't do much for me, at least not this one album I've found.  For years, I listen to Bobby Chen. He is great when he is right on. Even when he is not, he still shows he is an artist true to himself, a rare quality in this day and age.

Hang on the box do the coolest version of summertime ( Jains Joplin)
I have two of their CD's, great "cruising in the car" music

Joyside are excellent punkers, I have a CD of theirs featuring the legendary yangyang on guitar
absolutely cool , fun party CD, totally recommend it if you can get a copy.

I'll check out the others you mention if i can find them.

Sonic youth in Beijing - that is quite amazing!
I'll have to bring one of my own bands over there some day.

Jarmain, are you in a band?
