JACK BLACK’S TONGUE-IN-CHEEK ROCK PROJECT TENA­CIOUS D HEAD­LINES THIS YEAR’S CLOCK­EN­FLAP FES­TI­VAL

Hong Kong Tatler - - Hot Ticket -

Clock­en­flap is back for its sev­enth year and boast­ing an im­pres­sive line-up from the US, UK, Tai­wan, Hong Kong and more. Lead­ing the pack is US com­edy-rock duo Tena­cious D—ac­tor Jack Black (pic­tured) and Kyle Gass. The pair, who have played along­side mu­si­cians from such rock bands as Foo Fight­ers and Bad Re­li­gion, and have guest-starred on Satur­day Night Live, first gained pop­u­lar­ity in the late ’90s with their own TV se­ries (also ti­tled Tena­cious D). They’ve been charm­ing crowds with their uniquely ab­surd songs about sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll ever since. Other big-name acts for the three-day fes­ti­val in­clude Amer­i­can in­die rock band The Flaming Lips, disco funksters Kool & the Gang, Scot­tish post-rock group Mog­wai and Tai­wanese singer-song­writer Deserts Chang. Plenty of arty ex­tras like sculp­tures and in­stal­la­tions, per­for­mance art and fun crafts for the kids will be avail­able, too. Check clock­en­flap. com for the lat­est up­dates. Novem­ber 28–30; West Kowloon Cul­tural Dis­trict; $510–1,248. TICKETFLAP.COM
