Sodagreen joined the Nokia Xpress Music Tour in Beijing this past week, performing four songs for the delighted crowd. They were followed to the stage by Fusion Band, which gloried in the opportunity to see their seniors in the biz again. The crowd didn’t know Fusion all that well, which is frankly shocking and completely wrong, but they managed to win over some new fans, and of course some of their supporters were on hand to cheer them on. Both bands will be at the Shanghai stop of this tour as well, taking place next Saturday (I know I promised to stalk Fusion, but I’ve got a big deadline then. I think the stalking will have to start in earnest around Thanksgiving). Shanghai is their hometown, so they’re likely to have even more fans on hand then. (And the second album? Still recording, it seems.)
Meanwhile, sodagreen was in Chengdu recently for a mini concert as a part of a series of performances sponsored by Carlsburg Beer (Mayday is also touring China on the same circuit with the same sponsor. Boy, Carlsburg Beer is really determined to expand its market in China, huh). They’ll be hitting a variety of other cities as well, so now I’m wondering if they (either “they”) will come to my town.
Oh, and sodagreen may not be putting an exact date on their new album, but they are composing now, so they hope for next year. They don’t say when next year, though, which seems wisely cautious.
I’ve got lots of other news, but it has been a crazy week, so I’lll be catching up starting tomorrow.
