Tonight, Danish duo ‘The Raveonettes’ play a one night only gig at Yu Gong Yi Shan in Beijing as a part of their China Tour.
The Raveonettes have wanted to tour China for a long time, and they are happy that they are at a stage in their career, where they are able to pick their own venues and do what they feel is important for the band.
“We’re so excited to finally play China. Sharin is a quarter Chinese so she ‘s obviously really thrilled about going back to her roots,” Sune Rose Wagner explains in the November edition of Time Out Beijing.
The Raveonettes have been one of a number of bands anointed as the new royalty at the forefront of the garage-rock revival, alongside the likes of The White Stripes and The Strokes.
The duo, consisting of Sune Rose Wagner on guitar, instruments, and vocals, and Sharin Foo on bass, guitar and vocals are heavily inspired by Danish film makers Lars Von Trier and Thomas Vinterberg. Seeking authenticity through simplicity and creativity through restrictions, The Raveonettes have released four albums so far and count The Everly Brothers, The Jesus and Mary Chain and The Velvet Underground among their influences.
The Raveonettes are playing at Yu Gong Yi Shan on November 16th at 9 p.m. Tickets are available at the door at the price of 260 Yuan.
