The hot month of March ends with three concerts on Easter Sunday—Irish rock trio The Script at the Big Dome, US-based alternative band Jars of Clay at the Walkway in Bonifacio High Street, and K-pop acts MBLAQ, Excite and Two-X at Aliw Theater.
This triple treat is immediately followed by an “April showers” of sorts: a heady mix of Swedish house, Britpop, Japanese post-rock, and American death metal/hardcore, with equally formidable homegrown talents thrown in for good measure.
The musical mayhem that is the month of May boasts of classic rock band Aerosmith finally hitting Philippine shores after months of speculation.
There’s also another first in Manila concert history—today’s hottest foreign and local indie/pop-rock groups sharing the stage in what’s touted as “the first-ever outdoor music and arts festival in the Philippines,” which will be held on May 8 at a brand-new concert venue.
Oh, and that’s just the beginning. More to come soon.
