LBM Exclusive: Broke China Tour


My first Strawberry Festival I was unsure of what was in store for me. I mean, this was China – I was coming in with as fresh ears as one could. What awaited me was not at all what I expected – my ears were bombarded with the electro punk stylings of Reptile Youth, a Danish duo, who were prancing around on stage shirtless like coked-out carnies. Despite the scorching heat and early time slot, the two Danes had managed to whip the entire audience into a frenzy – a frenzy that I wouldn’t soon forget. Mads Bergland of Reptile Youth felt the love too, and he returns to Beijing this week with Broke, his latest digitalized post punk assault alongside Simon Littauer. The band has been receiving quite good press back in Europe and Live Beijing Music along with Bamboo Bridges are proud to set them off on their first China tour. Performing this Thursday, April 17th, at XP the duo kick off a six city tour that’ll end at the MIDI Festival in Shanghai and Beijing. Check out the tour schedule below and catch up with their sound over on their douban page.
