Quezon City., October 1, 2016 – Epic Events, a family of young, driven, and passionate individuals brought together by their collective love for the art of organizing, managing and/or producing events, celebrated their 2nd year anniversary by having a birthday gig at Mow’s Underground Bar which aimed to support and promote the local independent music scene.
Epic Events invited SUD as their headliner since their first produced gig. Playing for the second time were Rob and the Hitmen and There’s Era. First timer bands to play were Jensen and the Flips, Peryodiko, Run Dorothy and Zipcode.
Zipcode, a band formed in Los Angeles, opened the show and it was their first gig here in the Philippines. Run Dorothy performed next, singing songs from their EP ‘Sanguine’ which they launched last August 1, 2016. Peryodiko caught the hearts of the people when they sang their original song “Tayo Lang Ang May Alam”. There’s ERA, who consider themselves a punk rock/ alternative rock band, sang “Kung Kailan Kailangan Ka” which gave feelings to all feelings. Rob and the Hitmen played some of their English original songs and switched the mood by singing Closer by The Chainsmokers and gave it a different zest the hitmen way. Jensen and the Flips played next. They got the audience flipping at Stay With Me, singing “Alright, alright, alright, alright” with them and mashing-up different songs for the intro of Dangerous. Last but definitely not the least was SUD. Their song “Sila” is a must play now that it is becoming everyone’s favorite. SUD did not disappoint, their songs reminded us to always #bringyourlover. They definitely delivered a finale set for Epic Events’ 2nd anniversary.
One of the heart touching moment during the gig was when Peryodiko’s front man Vin Dancel talked about how laborious it was to run a production company. It became an affirmation for the people behind Epic Events that what they were doing is beneficial to the local independent music scene– putting up an event with bands of diverse genres and sharing the music to old and new audience.
