It has been ages since we had a gig (with a
poster, I should add - there was a Wanch gig or two in Q1 :)), and it
will be awesome so go on stage with so many friends and fellow bandmates
for Friday Night Rocks!
Come and check it out if you have time! Link here for Facebook event, with the description attached below...
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
I have been to Hang Out so many times, watching amazing bands like The Merriweather Deer, Yuck!, Hungry Ghosts and so on and so on. Now we not only get to play there, but with KOLOR, ToNick and Deep Inside. RAD!
First there will be Uni bands tearing it up, we'll go on around 8pm. Did I mention that this is FREE ENTRY?
Facebook link to the event here. See you there I hope, we are stooooooked to play there!
EDIT: Timmy here, we've updated our video blog which includes an episode of us preparing to play at this show. Check it out here:
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:

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!

PartyPosted by Freddy Gunn Sat, June 15, 2013 15:32:40 Dude, I can't wait for this - we almost have tons of fun as beer-thirsters fill the streets and listen to some rawk. Last year there was shouting like "I say 'H', you say 'K'", or "I say 'beer' you say 'drunk!'". Raddio :)

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!
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

Yamaha Asian Beat winner, Jukator endeavors to create mind-blowing music
to the crowd; And with its dynamic "party rock" and strong stage
