Last friday we've headed to the Kung's Street Music Concert outside Hong Kong Art Center, and have discovered a real cool band from Vancouver, Canada called DD/MM/YYYY.

It's a 5-piece art rock/experimental band with a guitarist/vocal, a bassist, a synthesizer guy, a percussionist and a drummer. Their sound is actually pretty unique, with massive creative rhythms and arrangements. It's real interesting to see how the drummer and the percussionist, who only have a snare and a hi-hat, experiment and co-operate to work out some real cool rhythm. It's definitely not some easy-listening stuff but for sure we've got so inspired by their music. We've found it so interesting how their music had triggered our minds to start to think. What a brilliant and energetic live performance they've offered. So after checking them out at the Street Music Concert, we've even gone to the Cavern on the same night to check them out once more.

If you're into creative and experimental indie sounds which push to the limit, DD/MM/YYYY is definitely a band that you shouldn't miss.

Nice, I saw these guys last year in San Francisco - opened for Don Caballero no less. It's hard for me to say, but they were actually better than Don Cab. O_O

Great to see that they are playing in HK! Hope you guys had a great time!

They might not be the best band but they're definitely innovative and inspiring. Very unique sound and interesting arrangements, we're having some great time watching them, and at the same time got really inspired.
