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 .
