Be sure to mark it down on your calendars as these are some of the rare moments when you can catch three indie favorites back to back!
24th January 2018 The Pains of Being Pain at Heart @ E-Max Music Zone
Brooklyn Indie darlings, The Pains of Being Pain at Heart, well known to Hong Kong crowds, the band has been frequent players on the stage of Clockenflap, this will be the follow up to their consecutive years at Clockenflap (2015 & 2016). Hong Kong fans will finally be able to enjoy the band’s first ever headline show in the city.
Coming in hot with their newest album The Echo of Pleasure, the band has been showing more intricately woven melodies layered with lush sounds and masterful lyrical skills, their music shows the growth of the band, since their debut 10 years ago.
1st February 2018 The xx @ Asia-World Expo
Tickets are selling by the second as we type out this description, maybe not much has to be said about this band. UK indie band, The xx who won the Mercury Prize for the UK’s best album in 2010, started strong as an independent band The xx came to Hong Kong back in 2013 for a sold-out show and as the crowd’s’ reaction has shown that this might be just the same, as 5 years is a really long wait for the to get back onto the stages of Hong Kong.
Their newest album I See You was released in January, 2017, we wonder if their setlist will include some of the fans favorites such as “On Hold” and “Replica”. Their return will bring them to a bigger stage at Asia-World Expo in hopes to reach out to more fans in Hong Kong!
14th April 2018 The Wedding Present @ Grappa’s Cellar
One of the cult favorites, The Wedding Present are one of the legendary bands that have set the standards for future indie rock bands that follow in their footsteps. Debut in 1985, the band was known for their masterful ways in meshing together beautiful melodies and meaningful lyrics. For those who have yet to experience their music live, you have to come to Grappa’s Cellar in April, to learn what Rock really means.
In 2017 The Wedding Present re-recorded their debut LP George Best 30. This project is part of their twentieth anniversary celebration, through the new album, you’ll be able to hear the more experienced and confident versions of the band.
