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."

April 20: Robin Nievera at Fringe

PartyPosted by Freddy Gunn Fri, April 19, 2013 13:10:02
Ho ho HO!

We are stoked to play alongside Robin Nievera as he and fellow band Carlos Castano & the City Lights Soundtrack take over Fringe Club on SATURDAY April 20. It is 150HKD including drink and we will be opening the evening. Come down!

http://www.facebook.com/events/294678190662610/


Robin Nievera (Philippines)

Robin Nievera is a singer/songwriter, guitarist, composer and musical producer from Manila. His riffs, melodies, and lyrics are inspired by Incubus, Dave Mathews Band, John Mayer and Bon Iver. Robin and his band opened for Hanson’s “Shout it Out” world tour early 2012, and Robin won “Best New Male Artist” at the prestigious 2012 Star Awards. The band released its album “Nightmares” in November 2012, and is currently undertaking its first Asian tour, making stops in Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan.


Carlos Castano & the City Lights Soundtrack (Philippines)

Carlos Castaño is an independent musician from the Philippines. His music is a reflection of the multitude of stories that heʼs accumulated over the years. Moving back to the city three years ago, he started writing material for his first album City Light Soundtrack, a 12-song all-original release that was launched in November of 2010. A year later he begun producing and writing material for his second album, City Light Soundtrack 2: Permanence, released today- March 21, 2012.


The second album is an 11-track all-original release that still mirrors the first album but is sonically miles ahead. Produced by himself, Edward Enriquez, Kelvin Uy, and Errol Apacible in his home studio and in Kerplunk! Recording Studios in Makati, Carlos says that his truer influences shine out here in the second album- “everything from Motown to early pop records to the blues.”

Cover: $150 (in advance), $180 (on the day); includes one special drink
