[The Wombats Touring]
Remember this set of Liverpudlians? Liverpooligans? City-affiliation aside, the Wombats is a trio that first gained popularity outside Liverpool city limits, about 5000 miles outside city limits in fact. This quirky trio really started grabbing a fanbase in China, where, as students from Sir Paul McCartney's Institute for Performing Arts, they played for the country's largest music festival - Beijing's MIDI Festival. With their catchy lyrics and bouncing beats, I'm sure it wasn't hard for them to capture those billions of hearts. And they captured billions of hearts indeed, notice how their page can be Mandarin-ified. Well, since those days, the kids have gone about gaining some new fans closer to home and are currently on tour in the UK, so, of course, that goes highly recommended. Go on, join the billions, you know you want to...
