Show Preview: Modern Sky Festival @ the Mural Ampitheatre, Sun. 10/11

Modern Sky Festival, a music festival begun in Beijing, China, comes to Seattle this Sunday. Just last year the event came to the States with a production in New York, and now it’s expanding! This year’s lineup, including Gang of Four, Black Lips and Ariel Pink (um, this is definitely intriguing), also brings Chinese bands such as New Pants and Hedgehog into the mix. Plus I see something called Mushroom Bunnies and Friends on the Facebook event page. What’s Mushroom Bunnies and Friends? They sound fun. And I will say this again and again. . . Gang of Four is playing. Gang of Four is playing.

And it’s really cool the festival is using the Mural Ampitheatre, a lovely spot which is way underused.


Lineup! Oh, and be there at noon. This event goes all day:

Gang of Four
Black Lips
Ariel Pink
Mirel Wagner
New Pants
Song Dongye
Miserable Faith & more
