The Modern Sky Festival will bring Chinese indie rock and pop to New York's Central Park October 4-5, when the Beijing-based festival makes its US debut, according to The New York Times.

"Atomic Bomb," a tribute to Nigerian musician William Onyeabor, will open the festival. Also slated to appear on the first day are Liars, Blood Brothers, and Taiwan's Zhang Xuan, aka Deserts Change.

On October 5, the line-up includes Cat Power, who appeared in Beijing in December 2013, along with Stars, the Both (featuring Aimee Mann), and local Beijing favorites Second Hand Rose, Tongue, and Queen Sea Big Shark.
