XTX
Legendary Chinese rocker XTX (Xie Tian Xiao ???) brings his explosive live show to the US in April. The tour, produced by seminal Chinese label/promoter Modern Sky, hits nine cities including Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angele, Chicago, Boston, New York, and Indianapolis.

Originally from Shandong, XTX got his start in Beijing in the mid-1990s, forming Cold Blooded Animal and releasing the band’s self titled debut on Chinese underground rock label Scream Records in 2000. A 2002 tour of the US, during which Cold Blooded Animal became the first Mainland rock band to perform at SXSW, and two years living in New York City, honed the vision for XTX.

Nearly two decades of wild live shows and a bad-boy reputation have made XTX a mainstay headliner at major Chinese music festivals, and a legend among Chinese rock fans.
Morbid Goats
Morbid Goats
A young, original four-person alternative rock band, Morbid Goats brings a twist to their ages by giving the crudest, most powerful live performance. Originally based in Beijing, the band was deeply influenced by the social and cultural scene there, accounting for a great deal of their emotional inspiration for songwriting.

Morbid Goats was founded in June, 2014. Since then, Morbid Goats has been growing extremely fast. By the summer of 2015, the band had already completed its first tour in China, which was well received. In July 2016, the band went on its second tour in China. On its last stop, the band got to perform its exclusive show in Yugongyishan, the best live venue in Beijing, receiving more than 230 audiences that night. However, due to the relocation of central members, Morbid Goats temporarily disbanded, leaving only its first demo collection of 7 original songs.

Soon after, the guitarist Zhang Yilun went to study Music Production and Engineering (MPE) in Berklee College Of Music, the drummer Christine Kneer to Wellesley College, the bassist Wang Ludian continued his third year in college, and the lead singer/guitarist Ma Jianchu was accepted to Berklee College Of Music as a freshman.

Finally after 9 months, as Ma Jianchu goes to Berklee for further education, Morbid Goats is assembled once again, in the city of Boston. They are full of momentum and motivation, ready to bring along more exciting and new musical works.

If you, like many people out there, wonder why the band gives it the name “Mobird Goats”,

“Human is overcomplicated. Instead, we decided to name ourselves after an animal.

We pursue innocence, long for holiness; we are independent and dexterous, with a love for freedom – without these, we would rather face you morbidly.

Hope you decide to do the same.”

–said Morbid Goats

病山羊是一支很年轻的另类摇滚(Alternative Rock)乐队,2014年5月在MAO Livehouse首次登台(当时名为SoFA),于2014年6月正式成立并取名病山羊(Morbid Goats)。之后的病山羊一直在以惊人的速度成长:在15年夏季有一次京津冀苏皖沪6座城市的小型巡演并获得好评和推广;16年7月,病山羊进行了第二次全国巡演,最后一站乐队病山羊第一次在愚公移山举办了专场,实际到场人数达到230余人。由于核心人员前往美国留学,病山羊完成巡演的最后一场演出后宣布解散,留下了包含7首原创歌曲的同名demo集。

不久后,吉他手张轶伦前往伯克利音乐学院就读,鼓手郑可可选择前往了卫斯理女子学院,贝斯手王鹭点开始了在北京邮电大学的第三个学年。而主唱马建初则留在昌平区回龙观练琴尝试着入冬再考伯克利。这小半年里,马建初经常去热力猫、DDC等俱乐部的Jam Session,从不同乐手身上学到了很多,琴技有了显著提高,写了些新作品,并在12月中旬如愿接到了伯克利的录取通知书。郑可可师从了伯克利的音乐教授,鼓打的更加多元化。张轶伦在伯克利学习音乐制作与工程。王鹭点组建了新的乐队,始终没有停止玩音乐的脚步。

2017年,随着主唱马建初前往波士顿伯克利音乐学院深造,病山羊重新聚首波士顿,蓄势待发,一定会带来更多不一样的激动人心的作品。

"人类太复杂,我们更愿用动物自命名。
我们追求纯真,向往圣洁;独立机敏,唯爱自由——如果没有这些,宁愿病态地面对你。
希望你也如此。" ——病山羊
