Modern Sky

Modern Sky Festival has already existed for seven years in China, and this year the first US edition of the festival will take place in NYC on October 4 & 5 at Central Park's Rumsey Playfield. It's got a pretty cool lineup, including The Blood Brothers, Liars, Atomic Bomb! The Music of William Onyeabor (lineup TBA, but the last one featured David Byrne, members of Hot Chip, Bloc Party, Blood Orange, The Rapture and more), Cat Power, Stars, The Both (AImee Man & Ted Leo) and more. Full lineup below. Tickets, including single day passes and 2-day passes, are on sale now.

The festival happens not long before Stars release their new album, No One Is Lost (due 10/14 via ATO), so maybe we'll hear some new material from that.

This festival is another date on The Blood Brothers' expanding reunion tour which also includes a BrooklynVegan-presented NYC show the next day.

Full day-by-day lineup below...

Fucking volume level rules there makes everything suck. I mean really...The Blood Brothers? Like I'm supposed to hear what the person next to me is saying while they are playing. I think not.

Will this be Cat Power with band, or her doing that solo wanking phone it in thing?

^the origional 'cat power' quit a few years ago. She has since been replaced by a middle-aged lesbian.
