We were treated to a performance of Sepultura in Muziklaban’s 10th year but its 11th year will have something more in store for us. Aside from music, tattoos, extreme sports and film making will be included in Muziklaban’s roster of activities. Ricky Sta. Ana (one of the top tattoo artists in the country), Armand Mariano (a famous biker) and RA Rivera (independent film maker) will represent each of the activities that were added.
The battle cry for this year’s Muziklaban is “Bago na ang Labanan”. Philippine Rock Legend Pepe Smith will continue to endorse Muziklaban 2009 along with three new band endorsers. I wonder who are those three bands.
I guess we will learn who those three bands during the upcoming kick-off party of Muziklaban 2009 on May 15 that will be happening simultaneously at:
1. Super 8 Parking Lot, Rosario, Pasig
2. Service Road, Balibago, Angeles
3. Robinsons Lipa, Batangas
4. Rizal Park, Dumaguete.
