A one-day fest in non-festive October run by a Chinese corporation, Modern Sky Music Festival blends semi-prominent Western rock acts like dream-pop misfit Ariel Pink, garage-rock hedonists Black Lips, downer-folk troubadour Mirel Wagner, and post-punk legends Gang of Four with four Chinese bands. This sounds like a stealth operation to boost China’s musical standing in the United States. So we get Hedgehog’s winsome, C86-inspired indie rock; Miserable Faith’s scathing hardcore punk with excursions into reggae (they’re no Bad Brains, though); Song Dongye’s sincere, orchestral folk balladry; and New Pants’ charmingly naive neo-new wave. If not revelatory, they are… interesting. DAVE SEGAL
