It's gonna be dark, bleak, desperate, intense and far-out.
It also just so happens that it's gonna sound bloody great and gonna be tonnes of fun.
What's this you ask?
The Medullary Paralysis are coming to HK all the way from Italy once again, and they're making a stop with the Underground. With their deep, dark yet handsome music they'll carry you willingly into the 90s mixed with the 80s. To help them with their agenda, we have Vrank, the Manson-inspired heavy rockers, and the "Future-music" electronica of Blak.
It's gonna be lots of great music, and supplemented by lots of beer as well.
So mark 30th June down on your calendars as a night for some gothically oriented fun...http://www.undergroundhk.com/

More about the bands:
The Medullary Paralysis:
The Medullary Paralysis is an idiosyncratic lifestyle. We don’t drink, we don’t take drugs, we don’t have mechanical sex. The problem is addiction. We have a new vision about how to enjoy life. We hate victimism and we practice compassion. Latex is nothing special. You don’t need to wear it 24/7 to own your life. Take the chance to be reborn.
Our ears were weaned on the eighties: through our parent’s music, the radio and the tv… then mix that subliminal background with the nineties during which we passed through our adolescence… You have an out-of-body experience when we mix The Smashing Pumpkins, Marilyn Manson and the 80s. Not-so-industrial-glam on the dance floor.
A gothic industrial based in Hong Kong, started in 2008.
Gothic industrial music has always possessed the mystic power that the majority is curious to probe but dares not to enter. In Hong Kong, the city that is soaked with canto-pop, vrank presents their debut album that cares for the minority, challenges the unfair standards that are constantly raised to the weak.
Probably true to many people that music is just for entertainment, which is quite politically-correct in a sense. vrank, however, selfishly exploit the medium as a ten-year soul-searching journey - a surreal expedition that exposes the hidden side in their minds, and very likely in others too. It is all subjective emotions through the music compositions and yet, it is also all objective contradictions through the cynical lyrics.
歌德工業音樂,一向擁有著強烈的神秘力量 ,好奇心令普羅大眾欲拒還迎。梵姬的首張大碟正正填補了香港樂壇的空白,挑戰流行音樂的沉悶局面。他們的音樂更得到外國音樂界的認同,被美國唱片公司 Quickstar Productions的邀請,把單曲aggression於本年初收錄於旗下精選大碟 Industrial Underground中。
BLΛK is an electronic band consisting of Hong Kong musicians Po Kei, Jacky, Angus and Marvin. With “Destroy and Create” as the band’s motto, their ambition is to create their visionary “Future Music” by destroying the traditional rock band format.
The band originate by Jacky and Po Kei, the active musicians in Hong Kong rock scene. Po Kei is the members of an Indie Rock band Good Fellas, Jacky is a member of an Alternative Rock band Velvette Vendetta. These 2 bands are famed for their phenomenal and energetic live performances, which has led them exposures in major venues & festivals such as Venetian Arena (Macau), Clockenflap (Hong Kong), A-Fest (Manila) & Baybeats (Singapore). After some successful years of the former bands, they decided to explore their talents in electronic dance music, employing VST, synthesizers, dance beats, and catchy hooks, in their pop melodic songs.
In 2012, Marvin (drummer from In Love and Pain!) and Angus (guitarist from Good Fellas) are invited to join the band, making BLΛK a full powerful dance music act. Don’t miss the chance to feel the intensity of their live performance.
