The Underground has a very special Christmas surprise for all of you this year (well, almost-Christmas). ‘cause we’ve got a very special show lined up on the 27th of December. How special, you ask? Well, it’s at the very pretty Saffron on the Peak, and some special guests all the way from Australia’s Gold Coast will be musicking it up there. With their lilting, floaty and ambient indie-alternative sound, Fairchild will be making a Hong Kong stop on their way to the Midi Festival in Shenzhen, and making it a unique pre-New Year’s night. We’ve also got local Brit-rockers Operator to back them up.
Things appear to be lining up to make a great show, and you’re the only ones that could make it better. So, if you feel like having some post-Christmas Friday fun, come over to the Peak and join us. We’ll be waiting with tinsel on ;)

Operator takes the influences of modern day and past British rock groups and throws a little bit of attitude to create a wall of sound that is instantly recognisable yet musically unique. With our very own Lennon and McCartney of Ben Robinson and Victor Pena constantly churning out songs and a rhythm section so tight you can't get a thermometer in, Operator show you that just cause you sound like a singer from Manchester doesn't mean your band is an Oasis copy. The smooth pounding from Marc's Bass and the constant battering from Jon Lee's drums will have you dancing in the streets while the wail of Ben's SG and Victor's crazy guitar licks will have singing along to songs you may never have heard.
