Dancing at the Silent Disco
The setting of Clockenflap was incredible. It was on the Western Kowloon Waterfront Promenade, with a crystal clear view of downtown. Some of the bands commented on how beautiful it was (Sara Quin from Tegan and Sara even commented that she was moving to Hong Kong). I only saw two bands even though there were loads of other stages and options. Tegan and Sara was the first, and they were fun and cute and sounded great live.

The second band I went for was Metric. Emily Haines is truly a rocking badass inspiration for us all. They actually blew the entire sound system a couple songs in and had to clear the stage for ten minutes (which makes me sad to think about which songs they had to cut in those ten minutes they lost). This was my second time seeing Metric and this performance was mostly songs from Synthetica. Sadly, my favorite Metric song Empty was the song that blew the electricity so I never got to hear the end of it. Not Metric's fault at all though, and they handled it well.
