Money and the Monster: the Problem with Art Galleries1-2-16

Now some will say that art is totally subjective, that there's no right or wrong, much less good or bad... But I personally, cannot stand what has happened to the art scene in Hong Kong recently... And let me explain to you why it sucks to be a painter in HK.

Review- The Elephant in the Room- Udderbelly18-1-16

The Elephant in The Room is described as a “fusion of world-class circus, film noir and physical theatre." This styled physical act performed by Cirque le Roux seems to be a sober affair, but is instead energizing and exciting.

Live with Lizzy!- Gengahr18-11-15

I for one am very excited for Clockenflap this year. Personally, this excitement grew when I found out Gengahr was coming over to Hong Kong for the first time to perform at the event. With the recent release of their new album, A Dream Outside, the London based band is scheduled to play on Your Mum’s stage, 2:30pm on Saturday, November 28th. I would encourage anyone to check out their album; especially if you’re into Tame Impala and MGMT. This sound is quality psych-pop, eerily beautiful vocals and trippy composition.
