Having trouble figuring out who they are? So did we. But the answers are all over Weibo now: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Peace, The Soft Moon, Fujiya & Miyagi, Courtney Barnett, Never Young Beach, iri, Boys Age, Yogee New Wave, Suchmos, and Yahyel.
Exciting! In 2019 we’ll see the return of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (nearly eight years since they played at the old MAO Livehouse), post-punk outfit The Soft Moon, jazz-infused rock band Suchmos, and alternative j-pop band Yogee New Waves. Although these are confirmed artists, there’s still a chance they’re going to play Beijing exclusive shows, like the xx last year. The first Sound of the Xity’s upcoming show will be Wild Nothing’s China tour. We haven't received any info on rest of the tour dates from the artists mentioned above, but watch this space.
