Image hosted by Photobucket.com join altloudnproud ex class_and_sass here saying you should join this new community. My intention was for it to be more alternative and not just "indie" so basically this site is for the unconvetional and interesting, i'm not sure quite yet on the extensiveness of it, but i'm pretty content with the result right now.

FIL-AM HARDCORE BENEFIT ON JAN 15TH @Bindlestiff for BAYAN USA [31 Dec 2004|11:31am]

Body: 01/15/2005 07:00 PM - Bindlestiff Alley

505 Natoma Corner 6th St. (Between Howard and Mission), San Francisco CA., CA 94104, -
FIL-AM HARDCORE BENEFIT FOR BAYAN USA (The Unification of all the National Democratic Front groups here in the US) This will also be the weekend of the Bayan Congress, a meeting and discussion amongst our people to analyze our Diaspora and celebrate the art that comes from our struggle.
Proceeds will also go to help those who suffered the recent Tsunamis in Southeast Asia.
These bands are basically playing for free and are coming from far away so support and buy some merchandise from the bands that are from out of town.
FLATTBUSH (LA) Maoist grind core, like Mr Bungle joined the red fighters and played rabid music. A brilliant and maniacal mix of Patton-esque projects and angry Kapampangans make for a sonic overload.

ESKAPO (VALLEJO) Melodic political hardcore like Stiff Little Fingers crossed Los Crudos and influenced by the Twisted Red Cross bands of the Philippines. Dual vocal D.I.Y. Four chords to the floor fury.

DOGS OF IRE (SOCAL) Truly a revolutionary force, post punk but still hardcore with all the passion of a thousand oppressed people. Complex rhythms and passionate unique vocals only add to the intense experience that is this band.

KADENA (NYC) Straightforward street punk, Bulacan stalwarts who wave the Bayan flag and play songs that shred like Conflict. Dual Female and male vocals that sing of our militarization , U.S. imperialism and teach you what PUTANG INA MO really means.

LOST IN AMERIKA (LA) Pinay fronted metal core that will kick your sexist ass back to the backwoods, sounds like Walls of Jericho with more venom. LIA’s crushing grooves incite the mosh, their breakdowns pound the floor with stamping feet but they throw in a vulnerable melodic side in some songs as well.
The Filipino American benefit for the Bayan USA is an event open to all , it is a celebration of the art that roars from the deepest wound so we welcome all to participate .No fighting , no racist, sexist, stupid shit , dance but don’t break any bones .

* presented by piNoisepop Music Festival in celebration of the fil-am
history month

Plus documentary film "There's Blood in your Coffee" Nestle Workers
Documentary (Run time: 23:24) by the Southern Tagalog exposure
(people's center for progressive media) & PAMANTIK-KMU.

Amidst the Supreme Court rule favoring the Union, the Swiss company
that owns Nestle would not give into the just & legal demands of the
workers. For over 2 years, workers of Nestle factory in Laguna,
Philippines has been on strike . The struggle for their rights have
been met with repression not only from the multi-national company,
but also from the Philippine goverment....sometimes subtle, often
time violent.

KUMASA is an alliance of cultural organizations and individuals among
the trade unions in the Southern Tagalog Region in the Philippines
engaging in mass campaigns and struggles. With members from the trade
unions and the working class, KUMASA has played an active role in
presenting the issues and aspirations of the oppressed and exploited
classes thru education, propaganda and organizing work in the
cultural field.

The Committee for Human Rights in the Philippines (CHRP) educates,
organizes, and mobilizes Bay Area communities to promote human rights
of the Filipino people.

Eskapo in Tagalog means refugee or escape. Eskapo was the name of
Political prisoners who escaped Pres.Ferdinand Marcos's twenty year
regime . Eskapo is a melodic political hardcore band with lyrics in
Tagalog and English whose home town is Vallejo CA.. Our music has
been described as an energetic mix of Stiff Little Fingers meets Los
Crudos with a nod to Pinoy punks band of old like WUDS,Yano and
Philippine Violators. We appreciate anyone who gets into our music
and the message of unity and peace that we portray . If you see us
smoke us out or buy us a drink because we will pay the favor back
eventually .

Our Turn
San Francisco's Our Turn have been together since early 2003 and have
a demo entitled "Step Aside" (now available on vinyl) plus a couple
of compilation songs under their belts. Currently, they are recording
their debut 7"/MCD for Youngblood. Our Turn hope to tour the East
Coast this summer after they play this year's Posi Numbers.

Telling quote: "I don't want to reinvent the wheel. This may be
simple, but at least it's real."

Through many serendipitous meetings and occurences, four kids that
loved hardcore laid the groundwork for a band in an SFSU dorm room.
After going through many bad and cheesy band names, they settled on a
name which reflected an attitude of progressive thinking, non-
violence, and respect for the rich history of hardcore punk.

They recorded a 7 song demo (which was released on cassette) at the
now legendary Dutch Oven in Pleasanton.

With the help and hype of folks such as Craigums, The First Step,
Sean Youngblood, Joe Onlife, and MANY, MANY MORE, the O-Tizzle has
been able to play a gang of great local shows, tour the east coast,
play a few awesome hardcore fests, and release a 7" version of their
Step Aside demo as well as a 7"(Catch Your Breath) with Youngblood

Lost In Amerika
Lost In Amerika is a four piece , female fronted hardcore band from
LA . LIA has ben described as Walls Of jericho meets Philippine
hardcore with harsh , hard to listen to vocals and crushing grooves
and breakdowns . They a have a five song demo out called "Cotabato
Bombing" and will be available directly from them or at their shows.

Random thoughts for the Brownies!! [05 Oct 2004|03:39pm]

[ mood | Comer ]

Everybody go and see the movie about Che Guevarra, if not for the history then for FINE ASS Gael Garcia Bernal!!!!!

Also has anyone watched Coming to America lately? The first time I saw it I was like 8 and then I watched a few days ago and I am like I cannot believe my dad let me watch this. Not that it is bad or anything, just way too many sexual innuendos for an 8 year old girl.

Hello Fellow Browns [12 Aug 2004|10:26am]
[ mood | calm ]

Hey, I am Pekky, a 25 year old Latina from Columbia South Carolina (Actually born in Venezuela). My favourite bands can be found in my interest lists, but to name a few, I will mention Peter Gabriel, Bjork, The Smiths/Morrissey, Stereolab, Massive Attack, Interpol, Macha, Broadcast, Piano Magic, Tarwater, PJ Harvey, Kate Bush, Tom Waits and Peter Hammill... AND OF COURSE: Amigos Invisibles, Karsh Kale, Talvin Singh, Cornershop, State of Bengal, Joi, Talvin Singh
Among my favourite brown people are: My Arab, Indian and Latino friends.
I don't know if Brown Race refers only to "Desi" here, but I have a lot of Desi friends... Alsso I am Latina, and I have Latino and Arab friends (These races are considered "Brown" too, by American standards)... I wanted to meet Indie brown people, because I have not met too many off-line (In my city, that is) and Columbia is too little, I guess, to meet other than whites in the indie scene (It is also kind of why I am a member of _latinoclash)

I am also a college radio DJ in http://www.wusc.sc.edu That much I love India music!

And now some pics with my Brown Friends... Since I Have nothing better to doCollapse )
