In 8 MRT Stations, various artists/bands have participated in the 5th year of Rock the Riles. And for this year, the theme is “Justice We Beg” where RockEd Philippines clamors for justice for the victims of the victims of Maguindanao Massacre.
I arrived there late and I was not able to catch the bands that performed before Cambio. It’s still good that I was able to catch Zach and the Action Pact’s performance for the first time. If I’m not mistaken that’s the only time I saw Kris Dancel playing the tambourine.
It was also nice to see Gang Badoy there of RockEd Philippines and to hear her speak again as well. Just like Gang, I hope that there will be justice for the victims of the Maguindanao Massacre.
Duster also performed. I think it was right before Duster when Rain arrived. Of course, I was expecting Rain to go there because of Duster. 😀
Right before Imago’s set started, the crowd’s favorite at the MRT Shaw Station (Jason), took out his fan-boy paraphernalia. He was actually calling out the name of Aia de Leon (of Imago). Right after Imago’s set, he followed Aia de Leon at the back.
Sandwich performed right after Imago’s set. We heard some new songs (I guess). The sound of the songs are actually different from what we’re used to hearing from them.
This was also my first time to watch Ernville perform. Ernville is amongst the finalists in Nescafe Soundskool 2007.
It’s great to see South Super Highway perform again. Please do check out their MySpace. They’re included in my list of promising bands.
Peryodiko is just one of my favorite bands. They are composed of talented musicians armed with a great set of songs that you won’t get tired of hearing everyday.
Too bad, Diego Mapa was not there when Monsterbot performed once again.
It has been ages ago since I saw them perform live. It’s nice to see Ria, Alsey and Marco once again. Anyway, it’s the first time I saw Marco throw his guitar up and their tech assistants caught the guitar while Marco was walking towards the “back stage”. I’m sure though that they can’t do it in venues with a low ceiling.
