a weekend in review: Clockenflap

What a weekend! Clockenflap was pure awesome! I know that whenever I review a show I always rave about how amazing it is, but just to be clear I was lying, all those other ones sucked. They were piles of piss compared to this.
I kept being constantly impressed by the whole thing, it was a very beautiful location. Such a nice backdrop of the city. Very well organized, no major malfunctions. Everyone was in a positive mood and connecting/chatting with strangers.
Hong Kong really needed this and needs more like this. I got to catch up with so many good people and watch really good bands. My personal favorites of the weekend were Poubelle International on Saturday and Chochukmo on Sunday. Great performances! I don't know what else to say except- I had a fucking BLAST!

Here are a bunch of photos, enjoy (:

just brew it

Been recovering all day from the Anniversary of The Hong Kong brew house... been one year since they moved location. I have always enjoyed hanging out at the Brew House on any given night. I have seen that it is a great potential music venue as well. Last night was proof that it can host acoustic music quite excellently. Anyways, I don't even know if I'm making sense now, I am terribly hung over... whatever, heres some pictures -

Hot and Heavy

So... December is upon us and it promises to be a month of supremely good music.

This coming sunday (Dec.4) No Turning Back will be tearing it up at Hidden Agenda... Not super familiar with them but my buddy Ross really likes them.

Support: King Ly Chee, Defiant Scum, and Milkshake 7....
It's only 100HKD...

Then on the following thursday is the return of Parkway Drive! Saw these guys a couple years back, was such a fun show. Very cool band to see live. I recommend going to this, already have my ticket.
They will be playing the same place they played last time - at Hang Out....

You may watch this video and think, 'what the shit? another band on the beach video?' but keep watching, it gets REAL good!

for both shows...

...also simple plan is coming at some point (gives lazy masturbation gesture).

Sounds By The Sea

Such an incredible weekend full of fun and free music! Saw lots of good friends and drank lots of good beers!

Second time seeing my amigo's band Noughts and Exes play.. Excellent live band. Full of energy and a solid sound.

Check out their music video here -

Corey Tam and the One Horse Town was as stunning as usual! It seems they have permanently added a keyboard player... sensuality added!

David Bowie Knives brought a bit of sexual tension to an otherwise mellow day...
Had a bit of a tear in my laugh as Shaun did not refrain from making dirty jokes/remarks and singing out his sleaze...

Sunday brought forth 9 MAPS (who are having their Debut Album Launch this weekend in a secret location).
 Really beautiful as usual... Can't wait to get my hands on a CD.

Check them out playing a song on the star ferry here -

Jade and the Stagger Swallows ended the 2 day event with a mellow and gorgeous set. I'm starting to really love this band.
