Modern Sky Entertainment, one of China's most prominent labels for creative music, has expanded their operations to include a kind of touring festival in North America, billing some of their Chinese artists with international artists. New York, Los Angeles, and Seattle will host events next month.

I've seen Hedgehog and New Pants live, and both are very entertaining. The Modern Sky festivals in China that I've attended have been well-run and lots of fun, so I'm looking forward to seeing them bring it to the US, and show Americans a good time.
