As we’ve mentioned several times during the year 2020, it’s the entertainment industry that is one of the main industries facing complete annihilation. We don’t even know how any venue has made it through…
One of those that has consistently faced these obstacles head-on by trying a whole bunch of different things in order to get through all of this, has been Hong Kong venue The Aftermath.
Last night they yet again launched a new initiative to help continue to not only keep themselves afloat but continue to provide a platform for artists in Hong Kong.
Here’s the full write up and links below:
To open this upcoming new year, The Aftermath, a home for arts & cultural entertainment, will launch Aftermath TV, a media channel where episodes of stand-up comedy, live music performances, and game shows from HK-based event organizers will be available for pay per view on Friday, January 22nd. The fun creative content will be available on-demand via Total Stream, a streaming platform from the same people who brought Clockenflap and Ticketflap to Hong Kong, so the entire project is locally produced and distributed. In January, the first series released will be The Aftermath Fringe Festival as a part of Aftermath TV’s productions.
The Aftermath Fringe Festival consists of a total of eight episodes of cultural entertainment. In collaboration with Comedy HK, Aftermath TV has produced two episodes of stand-up comedy featuring some of Hong Kong’s top comedians having a wild time. An absurd game show titled, Questionable Drunks, designed by Seth Waters, one of HK’s funniest comedians. Millennial Quiz, which hosts regular pop culture quiz nights at The Aftermath, filmed an interactive virtual quiz.
The other four episodes of The Aftermath Fringe Festival are an opportunity to meet incredible HK indie music bands in an interview and hear them perform their music live. Each band is the main subject of their own episode; Shumking Mansion a funky psychedelic rock band, Mr. Koo a blues and surf rock band, Cry!Romeo an ‘in your face’ alt-rock band, and Jonathan Yang an art-rock solo project but otherwise a member of Mothgown and David Boring.
