Get cosy with Dutch master

Perhaps the most succinct title of a gig we've heard of is tonight's An Intimate Evening with Sander Kleinenberg, being held at Homebase in Central.

This is because Kleinenberg is an A-list DJ - placed 59th on the 2008 DJ Mag list of the world's top 100 - and Homebase is quite, well, cosy to say the least. So cosy in fact that only 100 people will be allowed in.

The Dutch DJ has been a mainstay on the progressive house circuit for more than 15 years and and has previously attracted thousands to his appearances in the city. And if you were hoping to catch him tonight, the organisers recommend you arrive soon after the doors open at 9pm. Entry is HK$250 for those lucky enough to get in.

Legend's Macau gig in April

The flow of big names performing at the Venetian Macao seems to have dried up amid the financial woes affecting the city's casino sector, but the drought will be broken in April with the arrival of American R&B performer John Legend (right).

Since the release of his mega-selling Grammy-nominated debut, Get Lifted, in 2004, Legend has scaled to heights befitting his surname and is now on the road to promote his latest release, Evolver. The Evolver World Tour will make stops across Europe and Asia - including the Philippines, South Korea, Japan and Shanghai next month - before it touches down in Macau on April 10.

Battles axe show

Bad news for Battle fans: the experimental rock band won't be coming next month, as the rumour had it. We hear from organisers The Peoples' Party - responsible for last week's gig by Jose Gonzalez and the upcoming Young Knives show - that a combination of factors led to the cancellation of the gig by the progressive American five-piece.
