Independant live music in HK?

I'll be arriving in HK on Tuesday and staying for six days and wondering if there are any live music venues on HK island that feature indy music or perhaps some jazz, blues or Funk. Is there such a place? or are there only cover bands playing corporate or elevator music in hotels? An underground club might also be worth checking out if it was unconventional, non conformist or creative. Any ideas?

Hi Jamie:

You'll just miss Rockit music festival this weekend (another thread in this Activities forum; also news item here with photos and guff from Rockit 2003 and 2004)

Dunno if may be a few follow-up concerts: last year, one of main acts played at least one gig in local spot.

For latest on upcoming concerts (mainly small venues, such as tiny Wanch pub), maybe pick up BC or HK magazines (or both) - free, from various coffee shops and bars.
oh, and also maybe have a look at www.hkclubbing.com

Whether jazz, indy or a mix, hope you find something good

Martin

Just found this site with calendar for live gigs:

(strong local focus - so may be that info in some cases Chinese only)

Also check out [url=http://undergroundhk.com/]Underground Hong Kong[/url] for info on gigs by unsigned local bands.
