Adidas and New York entrepreneur Damon Dash are putting on a series of art and music events in Hong Kong in early March.
One of the highlights of Clockenflap was a performance by British indie band the Klaxons. Performing to a large crowd and overlooking Hong Kong’s harborfront, the Klaxons played a number of their big hits including “Golden Skans” and “It’s Not Over Yet.”

If there’s one band in Hong Kong that knows how to get people jumping, it’s Hardpack. These guys play a kind of party-Punk somewhere between Bad Brains and Fishbone!
