From Gothenburg with love Various collectives located in the sprawling Chai Wan Industrial City have hosted some off-the-hook events since creative types started moving in a few years ago, and if you've never headed out east to see what all the fuss is about there's a gig on this weekend that provides the perfect excuse. The cool people at art/design house the Embassy are hosting the local launch party for Swedish fashion label Dreamandawake, which has expanded from home turf to boutiques in Paris and Milan - and now Hong Kong - selling its signature reconstructed vintage dresses. But as this is the Gigs page and not Fashion, what we're most excited about is the live music on offer and, apart from great local bands Mammoth and the David Bowie Knives, the main attraction will be indie/emo rocker Kristian Antilla, who'll be performing with the local acts. Antilla hails from the Swedish music metropolis of Gothenburg, and released his latest album of guitar-based indie-pop earlier this year. Initially a concert photographer, Antilla decided to take to the stage himself in the early years of this century and made his recording debut in 2003 with Natta De Mina. He remains best known globally for his infectious first single Paul Weller, but gained a lot of unwanted attention from the US media with the song Paris, from second album Before the Bombs, with allegations that his fiery lyrics sparked the riots that broke out across France late last year. Antilla spent the summer touring Europe and is well worth catching at this night of Swedish fashion and music. And if that wasn't enough, did we mention that entry, food and booze is all free? The Embassy is located at Unit 309, 3/F Chai Wan Industrial City, Phase 2, 70 Wing Tai Road, Chai Wan. The fun starts at 6pm. Share and share alike ... legally One event that all Hong Kong recording artists - as well as artists, writers, photographers and filmmakers - should be aware of is this weekend's local launch of the Creative Commons licensing system. Creative Commons aims to get rid of the problems copyright laws create for the sharing of information, and allows artists to retain their ownership of a work while allowing others to make use of it - a vital step in this age of sampling and remixing. Founder Lawrence Lessig has said traditional content distributors have dominated modern culture to maintain a monopoly on cultural products such as music and films, and Creative Commons provides alternatives to these restrictions. Lessig and chief executive Joichi Ito will be speaking at Saturday's launch event at the Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity, 135 Junction Road, Lok Fu, and live music will be provided by Snoblind (left), a rocking laptop duo who make extensive use of samples and are obvious proponents of the Creative Commons system. The launch runs from 12pm-6pm and entry is free, but you must register at hk.creativecommons.org/.
