PinoisePop 8: Pinoys making noise

This weekend only, THE LAST PinoisePop Asian American Band festival at the current Bindlestiff Studio on 6th street. Check the link on the left.

Thursday - Saturday $10 admission each day

I'm particularly fond of Friday's lineup with Bobby Banduria and the Skyflakes as well as a premiere animation music video from the premiere Dino Ignacio who elegantly captured Rex Navarette's "Marites and the Superfriends" bit.

There's also Saturday with hard rocking Eskapo, fan favorite Charmin (they're soft on your ass), and From Monuments to Masses.

The best part about PinoisePop is that it's cheap, and the other best part is that no cover songs! All bands must play original music, which really puts the creative pressure on bands to work their best stuff rather than fall back on someone else's oldie but goodie.

Bring your earplugs! I'll see ya there!
