With Irish blood running through our magazine, we can’t recommend enough the opportunity to have a gawk at the three Irish comedians set to make it to Hong Kong just in time to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. With Karl Spain, Joe Rooney and Patser Murray appearing, this event should be a bucketful of laughs.
Mar 15: Cloud Nothings

A high-octane and caustic punk band coming from Ohio in the US, Cloud Nothings bring their latest album, Last Building Burning, to Hong Kong this March, playing in the sweaty and cramped environs of MOM Livehouse. Carrying on the grand old tradition of noisy punk music coming out of Ohio, Cloud Nothings have taken the stage at a number of hugely popular festivals around the world since their first album release.
