The Underground is expanding into Wan Chai and debuting with an all-ages event series. Three bands are heading: Asyndeton, a young alt-rock outfit, will be followed by the Turing Apples, named after the father of the computer, with a sound influenced by Explosions in the Sky and Caribou. The show ends with a bang, with hard rock foursome Andy Is Typing. Sep 3, 9pm. The Hub, 1/F, Fortune Building, 150-158 Lockhart Rd., Wan Chai, $100 from undergroundhk.com; $130 at the door.
Tonstartssbandht & Gong Gong Gong
Tour 2016 Hong Kong
Tonstartssbandht, made up of the
Floridan brothers Andy and Edwin M. White, teams up with active Beijing underground musician duo 工工工 (Gong Gong Gong), for an amalgam of blues, rock n’ roll and psych-pop. Tonstartssbandht’s guitar/drum tunes, with soft vocals occasionally seeping through, deliver a mysterious mix of 60s psychedelic-rock, choral pop and boogie. When that fuses with Gong Gong Gong’s hypnotically repetitive guitar and bass rhythms, it almost feels like a spiritual experience. Sep 16, 8:30pm. Running Horse Lantern RHL204, 2/F, 204 Prince Edward Rd. West, Prince Edward, $120 by whatsapping 9184-7753, or private messaging facebook.com/RHL204; $150 at the door.
