Girls with Guitars #8 – Underground Hong Kong | Hong Kong live music showcases | 12 years and counting

Dovey:

The band have been around since 2004, according to fb, wow!   That’s longer than a lot of marriages last.  =D

You can hear an acoustic clip from 2014, and also a heavy rocker from 2012.

And Dovey was featured on Girls with Guitars #1, way back in 2010

P!SCO at The WALL on Saturday.   Happy crowd selfie for their 6th Anniversary/album release show, with the band, the crew, and special guest Riin the Girl (Robots女孩與機器人) .  =D   I’m curious to see what Riin played with them.   Looking at the stage setup, they had keyboardist DingDing in the back by the drums.

It’s been a couple of months since forgood 好多音樂 music YT channel posted a performance from forgood 好多咖啡 café, but they dropped this video of 原子邦妮 Astro Bunny yesterday.    4 songs, beautiful quality a/v.  =D

Trying to figure out when this was shot. My guess is late summer or early fall of 2015, just going by Lena Cha’s hair color, LOL.   Plus, they have a 3rd person (程杰 Jay Cheng) performing, and I haven’t seen him in any recent clips or photos.  Okay, I see on Jay’s fb this was in mid-October, 2015.  

Anyway, it’s a very low key atmosphere, and that’s typical of this series. Similar format to Yuran Session & Soul Live Box, but with a smattering of people hanging out.

Yuhan Su 蘇郁涵 switching gears from vibraphone and jazz to lead vocal and ethereal singer/songwriter!     =D

“號外!要聽我唱歌的這邊按下去就有囉, 有時候在想大概再過幾年就可以把客家歌們緩慢的收成EP了吧, 小號手麥先生說每次聽到這首歌, 就好像回到樂團一起站在苗栗中正堂舞台上的時候。給苗栗的情歌,希望大家喜歡也帶給你溫暖和平安 :) This is a love song I sing for my far away hometown. You’re listening to Kenji Herbert on Guitar, Rob Mosher on English Horn, Clarinet, and Soprano Saxophone. Special thanks to Amos Ang and Betsy Hsu for helping out with the recording.”

By the way, you can hear some of her jazz band back at that SoundCloud.

What is going on, Taipei Times?

Two different weekly columns in the Features section announced that this was the last edition.: The Vinyl Word (Marcus Aurelius-Contributing reporter) and Live Wire (Joe Henley & David Frazier-Contributing reporters).   =(

We’ve linked to Live Wire columns a bunch of times, and I considered it a must read for understanding the TW indie scene.  First the Gig Guide closes up shop, and now this.  

I’m very disappointed.  So many times in my Google searches for FYCI, it was Live Wire going back several years that helped out with info (in English!) about festivals, bands, venues, etc..

At least the Event and Entertainment Listings is going to continue.

I left a comment at the Live Wire link above. I encourage you to do the same.

Yuran 樂人 iCover Session with Frandé 法蘭黛樂團, the band covering Faye Wong’s 你快樂 (所以我快樂) You’re Happy (So I’m Happy).   This languid, mysterious melody is a perfect choice for Fran Fran!   =D

Did you see Frandé on Yuran Session from a few days ago?

Gig day with Astro Bunny 原子邦妮:  stub your toe, pack up the gear, drive to the venue (Windmill Chang Gung University Music Festival in Taoyuan), figure out where to go, selfies with the peeps, play the set, meet & greet the fans… all in a day’s work!  =D

The full set was already posted to the CGUSGA 長庚大學學生會 facebook. Probably by that person in the crowd with the pro-looking camera, you see appear a few times in the above clip.  =D
