There’s nothing more satisfying than throwing a kickass party.
Vandals On The Wall, an online publication that takes pride in providing curated coverage of the Filipino independent and mainstream releases, turns 2 this week. To celebrate its second anniversary, the website will be teaming up with Gabi Na Naman Productions and Revolver for 2 consecutive nights of exciting music performances, booze and grub, and fun activities.
Leave your worries at home for a moment and catch your favorite homegrown acts at Route 196 (July 17, Friday) and Saguijo (July 18, Saturday). Be part of this celebration that champions boundary-pushing artistry like no other.
The first leg features an expertly curated list of performers from different music genres and forms: electronic music (Skymarines, Tandems’91), hip-hop (Assembly Generals), indie rock (Flying Ipis, Autotelic), post-rock (Earthmover) and soul/jazz (Farewell Fair Weather).
