For several weeks now, a ragtag group of musicians has been converging at the Minokaua in Malate to share in the holy communion that is rock and roll.
Bound together in the common belief that music could still save souls if done right, the acts, including singer-songwriters and Tempo entertainment editor Neil Ramos, Oliver Croissant, and JB Briseno as with hardworking rock band Liwanag, pop-rock connoisseurs The Pub Forties and electronic-art duo BPM, give their all in every performance raging it seems against the dying of the light.
Spearheading each gig is impresario Reg Parungao, who has vowed to deliver more of the same wherever possible under her very own Rage Productions.
“I am committed to making Original Pilipino Music more accessible to the common people. It is about time we take it away from the hands of the bourgeoisie who simply use it as a tool to brainwash the rest of the country into believing everything is okay. No, things are not okay and we are not going to just sit idly, silently and let things be. We are going to be heard,” she said.
