PartyPosted by Freddy Gunn Thu, October 09, 2014 13:20:57
And we are BACK!


Not only from record recording (?) but also watching the demonstrations up close. What a couple of weeks! It might hence be in order to eat some good hot dawgs, catch a few rays and rock the f*ck out on Lamma Island!

We are back again, and it will be awesome! DP is on the bill, Dr. Eggs is on the bill, Himaya, Tonic, and tons of other friends. Come by in the afternoon for food and hangout, and stay with us as we rumble up on stage with (given previous years) an amazing crowd of HK's best!

Come by, get tattooed and listen to us while you do it!

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!

Aug 4: Poker Rock III

ConcertsPosted by Freddy Gunn Fri, August 01, 2014 14:04:56


For the THIRD year in a row, we are meeting up with our brothers The Fat Jokers for a night of instrument bashing. It is also the last chance to see the Jokers for a while - check out their statement:

Poker Rock #3 – We Love Char Siu Show

Poker Rock made it to its 3rd year and there is something special about the night. The Fat Jokers’ trombonist Bike Kit (a.k.a. Char Siu) is leaving us to Australia and the drummer of The Glareless, Au Yeung, is also leaving the band after this show. With Venerable Chung Chung (Dickson the sexy sax-man of Tri-deuces) and Shotgun Politics, join us in this once or never farewell party


People are telling me there will be Shotgun guest appearance of keys and synths, and someone replacing me on the drums for a song or two. Awesomeness!

Come by, and join up!

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!

Dec 15: Harbour Hallelujah festival

ConcertsPosted by Freddy Gunn Fri, December 06, 2013 01:19:01
Ho ho ho!


Dang, I can't believe that we are having the chance to lock off the year with one more outdoor festival! I'll just quote from the Timmster about this rad event:



"As I sit here typing this, in a gloomy Macau hotel room - I find myself cocooned up in a hoodie & scarf. I remember a time not so long ago that I used to show a bit more toughness! What's going on here?

Anyway kids. Here's a look at our next and final show of 2013.

It's been a pretty wacky year for us. We've played some incredibly memorable shows and that's thanks to all of you.

We've played three festival stages and we will close the year with one more.

The event we are playing at is a collaboration between Very HK, an organisation that strives to promote all things creative in HK and The Wanch, an organisation that strives to be badass twenty four seven.

Harbour Hallelujah, taking place at Very HK's 'Very Big Picnic' is quite simply, going to be a good time.

It's located at the New Central Harbour Front which is that stretch of grass between Central & Admiralty I believe and get this:

It's FREE

Some of the bands who we will be sharing the bill with are:

The Bollands
Say Mosquito
The Sleeves (man it's been ages since we've played with The Sleeves)
Don't Panic (!!!)

Of course there are several other fantastic acts.

Full line up and more details can be found here.

Hallelujah indeed boys and girls. See ya all there."
