March 26, 2016 - JAPAN TOUR - Merry-Go-Round livehouse

PartyPosted by Freddy Gunn Fri, April 15, 2016 19:39:59
(editing post to reflect the actual gigs we had, instead of instructions to get to the gig)

This concert was at the Merry-Go-Round livehouse, a nice super-sound-isolated cellar and extremely interesting performances.


It is beyond awesome setting out on our third tour (after Canada and Taiwan) to the majestic country of JAPAN! We hit three awesome livehouses in Tokyo and lived to tell the tale.

From Timmy:
The dust has settled from the ‪#‎tokyotransmissions‬ tour. It has been a whirlwind 4 nights in Tokyo. Touring is such a great experience for us and always pushes us to want to get better with many invaluable lessons learned. Thanks must be made to the bookers and crew of ANTIKNOCK, Live House FNV, Merry Go Round. Special thanks to Apryl, Yosuke & Ryuetsu for their continuous work in helping us get to Tokyo. To Decoluna for design work and Junko for translations. The bands and the audiences of each show, thank you for welcoming us and making us feel at home. Tokyo/ Japan we hope to return real soon. Sayonara!! (p.s new Hong Kong shows to be announced soon)

You can find a video that we cut together of the three gigs, with our new song NO TIME TO SURRENDER. Nice!

March 25, 2016 - JAPAN TOUR - FNV livehouse

PartyPosted by Freddy Gunn Fri, April 15, 2016 19:37:18

(editing post to reflect the actual gigs we had, instead of instructions to get to the gig)

This concert was at FNV livehouse, which I personally liked the most. A varied and interested crowd and a combo of local and international folks on/off stage. Would love to come back any day and have more of them ginger-beer-and-whiskey drinks!

(editing post to reflect the actual gigs we had, instead of instructions to get to the gig)

There is something magical that our 100th (!!!) gig is also the first in Japan! Antiknock was a SOLID place, where my faves Gorilla Biscuits had played just a few years ago. Rad.

Aug 8: OPENING FOR FINCH!

PartyPosted by Freddy Gunn Fri, August 01, 2014 14:12:27
I should let Timmy write this post since he has listened more to Finch than I (read: he is obsessed, I merely listened to Say Hello To Sunshine until the CD player broke), but in lieu of his ramblings let me say this:

FINCH, ARCHITECTS, BORN OSIRIS! Holy COW!!! I am going to have an amazing couple of days. To make it all much much much more awesome: we are OPENING FOR FINCH on the 8th at the huge Kitec Rotunda 3!


I am clearly dreaming :) Come by on the 8th for Finch, 9th for Architects and 10th for Born Osiris and pinch me!

July 20: LKF Beerfest 2014!

PartyPosted by Freddy Gunn Sun, July 13, 2014 23:28:56
Four years in a row!


LKF Beerfest has been making people happy for almost half a decade, and we've had the chance to bother crowds there during that full span. It is now time for 2014's edition, where we are helping to close off the event (9:15pm). Come by and drink beer and have fun with us!



You can visit the official web page for more information, but I think that the ever affelable Chris B summarizes the event best:

It's the time of the year again, when everyone stumbles out onto the streets of LKF, gets unforgivably drunk on 70 stalls worth of beer, and feasts their ears to fantastic live music. For the fourth year now The UndergroundHK has been working with LKF Beer and Music Fest to bring the best of Hong Kong bands onto the stage of Lan Kwai, filling your weekend up to the brim with groovy guitar tunes and summer beats. This year, the festival will feature over 20 bands and performers, including: Lancifer, here to perform all the way from USA; Kashy Keegan, who is perhaps best known for his song "This Is My Dream" - the opening theme of local channel HKTV; local Alt-rockers Mr. Rocket Head; Kevin Kaho Tsui, dubbed HK's City Living Authority by HK Magazine; and Planetrox China 2013 winners Shotgun Politics.

Awesome Chris! See you there!

To celebrate that great times are a-going again, we are hitting the Wanch with friends. Come and check it out!


You can find all the details at the facebook event page. Free. Three awesome bands, and your ruffians truly, and beer and beer and beer :)

For years now, The Underground has been quietly stirring up a storm in Hong Kong’s best live music venues. Now, to commemorate our 10 year anniversary, we’re emerging from our home underground to bring to you our very first outdoor music extravaganza. In collaboration with Hong Kong Fan Zone, Friday Night Rocks (aka The Underground Festival), will feature many of our very favourite Hong Kong bands. Acts on the day will include veteran Hong Kong performers. such as: Supper Moment, ToNick, Shotgun Politics, Dr. Eggs, Hey Joe Trio, Noughts & Exes, and Bamboo Star, bringing you a wide variety of sounds and surprises. Musical styles will range from indie folk to pop rock, so there'll be something to suit everybody. These well-travelled musicians have been gracing local and overseas stages for years, leaving their marks at Yamaha’s Asiabeat Competition and Quebec’s Planetrox China, and dosing audiences from Europe, USA and Asia with their energy on tour. We also have with us our special friends from Korea – Galaxy Express, the award winning rockers known for their infectious blend of tightly wound garage rock, punk, psychedelic sounds and explosive performances.

For a Friday night that rocks with good music and good fun, be sure to mark your calendars for the 28th March at the New Central Harbourfront, it's going to be one of the best nights of original music Hong Kong has seen for years!
