“For 18 years The Underground has supported Hong Kong musicians by providing them with venues and events that allow them to unleash their musical creativity and shine,” said Chris B, founder of The Underground HK and Musicians Foundation. “To mark our 18th anniversary we want to throw a “thank you” bash dedicated to the artists, performance venues that share the live music vision, and amazing audiences who party with us. The ban on live music has been very hard for musicians and venues, and we hope music fans will help make the night rock by joining us at Rula Live on November 19 for four killer hours of music played by four of Hong Kong’s hottest acts!”
「18 年來，The Underground 一直支持香港樂隊，為他們提供場地和活動，讓他們發揮音樂創造力並綻放光芒，」The Underground HK 和 Musicians Foundation的創始人Chris B說：
「為了慶祝我們的18 週年，我們想藉此機會向曾參與表演的盡心盡力的表演者、提供分享現場音樂願景的表演場地，以及參與我們活動的忠實觀眾表達我們真摯的感謝。現場音樂禁令對音樂家和舉辦場地來說是非常艱難的時期，我們希望樂迷們能參與 11 月 19日的Rula Live，讓四個高質素樂隊為我們帶來長達四個小時的精彩音樂表演，共同令整個夜晚搖滾起來！」

HYBRiD STEREO is a Filipino Alternative/Post-Hardcore band based in Hong Kong that started off covering songs, with Jm Inot on drums, Bryan L. Mendoza on bass and Zerron Qym on guitars in late 2017. The trio were looking for more members to complete the band and eventually play their own songs. After trials with different vocalists, Andrea and Shaun joined the group in August 2020, as the vocalist and guitarist respectively. Soon after, they released their first track “Broken Shards” a month later and are now in the works for a full-length album.
The band plans to bring back tunes they used to listen to but have lost their fame due to the pop culture takeover. Bringing in nostalgic feelings from the pop-punk and post-hardcore era, while at the same time adding a modern twist from their variety of musical backgrounds.
