What? Alive Not Dead is just two years old? No single entity has had as great an impact on Hong Kong’s art and entertainment landscape over the last two years. It’s almost hard to imagine the scene now without them.
Whether it’s actors, bands, designers or d.j.s, the site has thrown its full weight behind its members to help them meet one another and build off of their respective talents.
The key to the company’s success is that the founders truly practice what they preach. The Alive Not Dead social network has a grass-roots charm that’s contagious. You see the sites’ creators working hard (and sometimes partying hard!) at their events.
Alive Not Dead has grown exponentially in two years time. Members include talented individuals from around the world, as well as some of Asia’s biggest stars. But Alive Not Dead isn’t content with a roster of famous names. Their strength lies in their support for little known and up-and-coming people.
Alive Not Dead provides a platform for talented individuals to connect and collaborate with other artists, gain exposure, and grow fans. Looking towards the future, I can tell you that they’ve only just begun! Happy second anniversary Alive Not Dead!
This Saturday, May 9th, the Alive Not Dead crew along with some of the site’s top artists will be celebrating the anniversary with a band show to benefit a local charity. For a meager donation of $100 HKD, guests will be treated to performances by Hardpack, 24 Herbs, Josie Ho, Ryan Hui, FBI, Gong Wu, Eccentric, Killer-Soap, and Li Tong.
The donation also gets you a gift bag including the new 24 Herbs remix-single and a special safe-sex pack.
The last concert I attended at this venue (with this same gang) was one of the most memorable parties I’ve ever been to. You can read about that event here.
