The Notorious MSG
The Notorious MSG
Rising up from the hard streets of Chinatown in 2002, The Notorious MSG are three renegade restaurant workers on a mission to make your asses palpitate with their high-sodium beats. Their gritty sound is a compound of the rawest sounds on the New York City streets, hip-hop and punk rock, through a lens of streetwise Chinese-American tradition. They transcend traditional stereotypes while inventing a style and lexicon all their own. Their stage show, a whirlwind of sound and fury, has reduced women to tears and made grown men incontinent.
The MSG are set to release a full-length studio album May 24th, entitled “Heavy Ghetto”. Your blood pressure will soar. Your ass-hairs will sizzle. This is Chinatown, motherdickers.
An international renowned progressive rock band from the United States. The Hsu-Nami, named after the frontman Jack Hsu, became known as the first “Progressive Erhu Rock” band in the world. The Hsu-Nami integrates an amplified ”erhu”, a two-string spike fiddle used in Chinese classical and folk music, into an instrumental progressive rock sound. Their music is marked by virtuosic erhu melodies and shredding licks, in place of vocals, as intertwined by heavy guitar riffs, tasteful guitar solos, funky rhythms, and metal-driven rock drumming. Part of the new-fusion rock movement, the Hsu-nami redefines the 1960s and 1970s fusion rock sound.

Blazing the stages of the New York city area with their fiery brand of progressive rock, The Hsu-nami has been building a name and gaining fans since its inception in 2005 with an explosive live show and exceptional musicianship. Behind two independent releases, “Entering the Mandala” (2007), and “The Four Noble Truths” (2008), The Hsu-Nami has put together an impressive series of significant performances, (Most recently touring the whole country of Taiwan starting from the famous Spring Scream festival in Kenting to Kaoshung, Taichung & Taipei in April of 2011) They also headlining festivals in New York NY, Philadelphia PA, Boston MA, St Louis MO, Seattle WA Vancouver B.C and Toronto ON, as well as playing New York’s Citi Field (cap. 42, 000) and Times Square. They have also shared the stage with major acts, both domestic and international: Yellowcard (USA), Nightmare of You (USA), Bowling for Soup (USA), Chthonic (Taiwan), Van Fan (Taiwan), Dazzle Vision (Japan) and High and Mighty Color (Japan).
