WASHINGTON, Nov. 22 (Xinhua) -- Existing home sales in the United States rose in October to an almost 10-year high, as wage rise was releasing pent-up demand, an industry report showed Tuesday.

Total existing home sales, which are completed transactions that include single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops, grew 2 percent from the previous month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.6 million in October, said the National Association of Realtors (NAR).

Sales pace is now 5.9 percent above a year ago, reaching the highest level since February 2007, said the NAR.

"October's strong sales gain was widespread throughout the country and can be attributed to the release of the unrealized pent-up demand that held back many would-be buyers over the summer because of tight supply," said NAR chief economist Lawrence Yun in a statement.

"Tightening labor market is beginning to push up wages and the economy has lately shown signs of greater expansion," said Yun, adding "these two factors and low mortgage rates have kept buyer interest at an elevated level so far this fall"

Total housing inventory at the end of October declined 0.5 percent to 2.02 million existing homes available for sales, which represents a 4.3-month supply at the current sales pace, lower than the 4.4 months in September. Compared with the data in October 2015, total housing inventory is 4.3 percent lower.

The median existing home price for all housing types in October was 232,200 U.S. dollars, 6 percent above the level a year ago, making the 56th consecutive month of year-over-year gains.

Artist Huang Liaoyuan A visitor watches the items on display at Serve the Rock show in Beijing.

The retrospective seeks to tell the story of the rise of indie bands in China. Chen Nan reports.

Serve the Rock Niklas Sule Trikot Bayern München , billed as the first major exhibition to review the history of rock music across the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan, opened on Oct 25 at Asian Art Works gallery in Beijing's 798 Art Zone.

The exhibition, curated by Huang Liaoyuan from Beijing, Chang Yiping from Taiwan and Flora Kwong Man-wai from Hong Kong, looks at the rock scene in the regions over the past three decades.

The show includes personal items and collections, that have never before been publicly displayed, says Liang Long, the lead vocalist and songwriter of indie rock band Second Hand Rose, who initiated the idea of holding such a rock retrospective earlier this year.

Among the items on display are a guitar used by Cui Jian, known as the "godfather" of Chinese rock music, and his concert posters from the early 1990s; Second Hand Rose's stage costumes from its 2013 Beijing concert; and videos and photos from the first Hohaiyan Rock Festival in 2000 and the 1994 Chinese Rock Power concert held at the Hong Kong Arena. The 1994 concert stunned Hong Kong audiences and created a momentum for the wave of rock that then washed over the mainland.

"To have progress, we should look at the past and learn from it first," says Liang, 36, who recently returned from his band's first US tour.

He says that unlike today's young music lovers, who have wide access to information via the Internet, most rock musicians on the Chinese mainland during the 1980s and '90s were introduced to rock music via cassette tapes and CDs smuggled in from the West.

"I hope that the exhibition will help remind today's young audiences of what the established rockers achieved and how much they went through while pursuing their rock dreams," Liang says.

When he had the idea for such a show, Liang first approached Huang, who has managed Second Hand Rose since 2001 and is also a veteran music critic and contemporary artist.

Huang contributed items from his personal collection amassed over 30 years, such as handwritten letters seeking permission from the government to hold live concerts, and a red flag with all the participants' signatures from the first Helanshan Mountain Rock Music Festival.

Huang started the festival in 2004 in the Ningxia Hui autonomous region. It was the first outdoor music festival on the Chinese mainland that both made a profit and attracted more than 200,000 audience members for the three-day event.

"From a music festival ticket to a staff card, I kept all the items as a mementoes that witnessed rock music's development in the country," says Huang, 49, who now works as a consultant for Modernsky Records, the largest indie label on the mainland, which publishes Second Hand Rose.

"Without much information, the old generation of Chinese rock musicians accomplished their own styles with their pure passion for rock 'n' roll," Huang adds. "They used rock music, a Western music genre, to tell Chinese stories, which deserves respect from the young generation."

As fellow curators, Huang invited Chang from Taiwan and Kwong from Hong Kong, two important figures who have witnessed and participated in the development of rock music in those regions.

Kwong, who launched the Hong Kong-based record label Wow Music in 2007, contributed the songwriting manuscript of Hong Kong rock band Beyond, and a pair of drumsticks used by legendary drummer, Donald James Ashley, who passed away on Oct 19, at the age of 58.

Chang, 46, who is better known as Chang43, founded Taiwan's indie music label, Taiwan Colors Music, in 1998. He also started the annual Taiwan rock music festival, the Hohaiyan Rock Festival, in 2000, which has become one of Taiwan's biggest celebrations of indie music and offered a platform to local indie bands to display their talents, including the bands Mayday and Sodagreen.

Of the items on display, Chang considers an entry permit for Cui to visit Taiwan in 2007 as the most important one. That year Chang had invited Cui to perform at the Hohaiyan festival.
