"Cavesluts on City Vibe" - LTN-LA Television


Cavesluts self-titled LP will be released in 2007. A tour is being planned in support of this album.



Hu Xiao (pronounced "who shall") founded Cavesluts in 1994 while studying English at Shenzhen University in south China.

Cavesluts exhausted all opportunities to have a career playing Rock music in China. Bands are free to play any style of music once their lyrics are approved by the censors. However, the bureaucracy in place prevents bands from marketing or promoting their music or concerts.

They felt fortunate for being able to play government sanctioned festivals in front of crowds of up to 25,000 and for represented China at the Yamaha Asia Band Alert Final in Bangkok, Thailand in 2001; however they knew what was necessary if they wanted to move forward musically.

In pursuit of the dream to play Rock music without restrictions, the band members abandoned lucrative positions in China's current economic boom to make the journey to Los Angeles for a chance to play in front of Western audiences.

The band is being featured on a new reality-based TV show, ROCK IN THE FREE WORLD, that will be shot following the band's journey across North America. This production is being handled by Captured Live who most recently completed Particle's Transformation Live DVD. Shooting is scheduled to begin in September 2005 as the band prepares to embark on their first tour of California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona and Nevada.

The band appeared as part of the 2006 Chinese New Year celebration ( that was held at the prestigious Kodak Theatre in Hollywood on 1/21/06.

This performance was broadcasted live to more than 500,000 viewers in Chinese-speaking homes in North America via Phoenix-TV satellite carried on DirecTV and Dish Network.

After this exposure, the band played at the Lantern Festival in Monterey Park on 2/11/06 which attracted a large audience from young children with their parents to groups of pre-teens, teens, college student and elderly couples. (

Most recent shows include Los Angeles clubs, Fais Do Do on 4/15 and the Viper Room on 4/22.

The band's short term goals include a tour to promote their self-titled album in North America and Europe.
