Bisikleta Productions is bringing you two matinee shows this coming December 16 and December 23 at The Spot in Caloocan City.

The first one will be a Punk Rock show featuring the old school's finest hardcore acts THROW (watch out for their upcoming new album!), JUN IDIOT AND THE IMBECILES, THE GO SIGNALS, HARD K, AGAINST MAN. They will be joined by Tarlac City's BLIND SIDED, RED CORPSE and NO ONE LEFT.

And for the second offering we are bringing you a ska, dub and oi! set featuring SHUFFLE UNION, NEIGHBORS, STEADY MOVIN' BEAT, PINKCOW, GOODLEAF, DANDIMITES, THE EXSENADORS and TELLAYOUTHSKA plus a very special strictly vinyl  DJ set by our very own fellow Filipino EDDIE OCAMPO drummer for third wave ska bands such as THE INSTEPS, DAVE HILLYARD ROCKSTEADY 7, STUBBORN ALLSTARS and his latest band THE FULL WATTS BAND expect to hear some Channel Tube goodies as well as tasty 7 inchers from him.

These double barreled fun filled shows will be held on two consecutive Sundays at The Spot, located at Luzvic Building, Samson Road corner Francisco Street, Caloocan City. Gates will be opened at 3PM and admission will be priced at 50 bucks that comes with one ice cold beer.


Due to a hectic schedule and unforeseen events that took place last month Bisikleta Productions had cancelled the DJ night for Keb Darge's Booknation (my sincerest apology for those who had anticipated it) Since the feast of the son of Isis or for lack of a better word - err Christmas is drawing near what better way to celebrate this pagan ritual than to share and send the books to Keb's wife, EDITHA DARGE at BARANGAY PADANG, HERMANI, EASTERN SAMAR, PHILIPPINES 6804 as gifts to the children of Samar who had dreamed of having a library. 

And one more thing please avoid sending religious books.


PILISKAPINAS had done it again as the year draws to a close they hosting the  first ever PHILIPPINE SKA FESTIVAL and for this year they are bringing in Korea's top ska outfit KINGSTON RUDIESKA for a three night performance. First stop will be here in Manila for the 3RD MANILA SKA FESTIVAL on December 8 at Makati Cinema Square they will be joined by the city as well as nearby provinces top ska acts such as SHUFFLE UNION, COFFEE BREAK ISLAND, NEIGHBORS, JEEPNEY JOYRIDE, BAGUIO SKA PARADISE, STOLEN SHOTS, STEADY MOVIN' BEAT, DANDIMITES, MONSOONS and FINGERTRAP.

For the second leg of the PHILIPPINE SKA FESTIVAL they will be going to the Queen City of the South for the SOUTHSIDE SKARNIVAL at Cebu City happening at Peace Bar on December 15 and on December 16 at Bob Marlin Restaurant and Grill in Mandaue. This time they will be joined by the southerns finest as well as Manila's fiercest ska acts SKALIBRE 32, ONE MAN DOWN,  SEAWEED PASTA, SHEPERD'S PLAID, BLESSED THE KING, SHUFFLE UNION and COFFEE BREAK ISLAND.

Do drop by at any of the shows if you happen to be at any of these dates.

In case some of you do not know who KINGSTON RUDIESKA is, well it's time to give you a bit of edutainment so you'll not get confused with that K Pop thing. The band comes from South Korea and have been around since 2004 playing authentic ska music. If you like to be bombarded with tight rhythm section and even tighter horn section then this band is for you. Meanwhile enjoy their music video and start skanking.
