Hey there, I am writing this well after the event but thought to include the poster from our Canada Crusade Tour (with the Envol et Macadam festival concert our price for winning the PlanetRox China-leg). Montreal, Ottawa and Quebec City were fantastic! We had SO much fun and you can see our video ramblings and day-to-day shots on our blog.

Now starts planning for the fall and winter, with Silvermine Bay as the next stop. Hope to see you there!

Stu is referred to as "Jesus" by a couple of our lady friends for his ability to save animals, work with awesome causes and looking somewhat like our favorite savior and homeboy.

Now he is heading up his band Papancha at The Wanch, and we are keen to support alongside Say You Care and Kestrels and Kites (where Freddy plays cajon!).

16 March: Hong Kong Xover

ConcertsPosted by Freddy Gunn Fri, March 02, 2012 22:09:14
Hi gang!

I have always wanted to play at Hidden Agenda, and this Hong Kong legend is now into its third (or more?) iteration after being repeatedly closed down by the authorities. Joe from This Is Ammunition reached out to us about his and (this is another story.. I won't go there now) Milkteeth Joey Basha's idea to do crossover gigs in HK and I LOVE THIS! We have played with some awesome bands like Kolor, Apache, Staway (and of course IL&P!) but this is taking it to another level. In the words of Joe:

HKXO is a crossover. In a city famed for its blend of west and east, there unfortunately remains a divide between two parallel music communities. Whilst, the musical landscape of HK has never looked as bright as it has coming into 2012; HKXO aims to further close the rapidly narrowing gap between musicians in the territory; exposing as many people to as much beautiful, local, independent and genuine music as possible along the way.

Most of all, it's an excuse for a good time.

Date : 16th March, 2012
Time : 8:00PM
Ticket : $100 on the door
Location: Hidden Agenda( New Location)
香港牛頭角大業街15-17號永富工業大廈2樓A室
2A, Wing Fu Industrial Bldg, 15-17 Tai Yip Street, Kwun Tong, Hong Kong

Hey there, I'll post more when I know it. But so for we have been confimed to play Backstage with Killer Soap and Reign Lee for Social Media week. Some IT guru apparently thought that we used ze interweb in a good fashion (let's face it: it is YOU who are doing the heavy lifting by being awesome and joining us on FB etc).

Anyhow, drop by at Backstage on 16 February (Wellington street) around 10ish and we will be bashing tunes there.

Peace!
