April is officially going out with a bang, with a whole slew of killer events planned for the next seven days. Starting Tuesday, this year's Sound of the Xity
festival looks amazing. Taking place at all of your favourite Beijing livehouses (Modernsky Lab
, Yugong Yishan
, School Live Bar
), this four-day extravaganza features 45 diverse local and international acts spread across 12 mindblowing gigs. Headliners include Marky Ramone (yes, of the Ramones), Danish DJ Trentemøller, Swedish experimental rockers pg.lost and Japanese hip-hop pioneer DJ Krush.
This weekend's also May Day, so make sure you keep an eye out for this week's Best of the Weekend blog. With all the events going down this week, April's definitely not going down without a fight.
