We're just a day away from an eclectic Saturday at Bandwagon Music Market! Before we get the party started at Power Mac Center Spotlight tomorrow, here's a list of everything you need to know to about this gig experience like no other.
Following Bandwagon's mission to connect more people to music from different parts of the Southeast Asian region, the event will showcase a diverse line-up featuring some of the most promising Filipino and Singaporean acts we have today. From math rock darlings Tom's Story, nerdcore hip-hop geniuses Shadow Moses, cinematic rock band Runway Crimes, psychedelic synth-pop artist Eyedress, and post-Internet meme lords/savage post-metallers Beast Jesus, to beat storyteller crwn, electro-pop producer BP Valenzuela, indie quartet Oh, Flamingo!, and contemporary folk artist Bullet Dumas — #BWMM2016 has something for multiple variations of musical tastes.
