Upcoming: Summer Sonic Competition


The Summer Sonic Competition is underway again…over the course of the month of May, bands of all ilk will battle it out at the chance of being chosen to represent China at the Summer Sonic Festival in Japan. Last year Nanwu (who I finally was able to catch last week) took away the title against such heavy weights as Voodoo Kungfu and Misandao – pretty tight competition if you ask me. So stop by Mao Livehouse in the next few weeks and throw in a vote for the band you’d like to see tear it up in Japan. Here’s the schedule, which I’ll update throughout the month. Below I’ll also include the list of thirty competitors that includes some favorites as Buyi, Residence A, Long Shen Dao, Pet Conspiracy, Lifetest, CNdY, and more (already it looks like there are new additions to these thirty).
