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!

(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!

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.

Timmy and I had a wonderful acoustic + cajon gig to support adopted pets in Hong Kong. It was filled with good folks, wonderful cats and dogs and a nice beach beckoning with its cold waters.

1 Nov: Lamma Fun Day

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!



For you facebook cats, here is the link!

See you there!!!

WeirdnessPosted by Freddy Gunn Fri, August 01, 2014 14:17:33

Closing off the month of August in style we will try refraining from getting matching tattoos (someone, please just copy Kid's right arm onto mine) and are hitting up the Hong Kong Tattoo Convention to play in front of people way cooler than we are :)

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!

After one fractured hand (Kid), one fractured toe (Timmy, ongoing) and one foot broken in three pieces (Freddy) we declare that the Shotgun curse is over and we have a slew of good gigs coming up (hint, one is with Finch... FINCH!).

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 :)
