[NEWS] Best Live House in Hong Kong Is Closing

相信樂迷們已經收到消息在本地獨立圈極具代表性的 Hidden Agenda 宣布將會與大家講再見。我們希望作一個小小的tribute,在未來一個月,每天跟大家分享在HA所拍所見的金屬搖滾專場 (主要是3.0和4.0的,但最近也找到有當年2.0的照片!),作個小回顧。

Goodbye Hidden Agenda, for being a victim under the Hong Kong “revitalization” scheme. We’re planning a month-long tribute here to revisit all the wonderful moments in all the (metal) live gigs taken place at HA, honoring those who help advancing the music scene.

Looking forward to your comeback!
