Cabin fever is rising. People are risking their lives as they wait in massive lines at checkpoints to get to work. The best we can do right now is stay indoors and keep our hands germ-free.
Now that gigs have been put on hold due to the enhanced "community quarantine," Filipino artists—from Zild Benitez of IV of Spades, Ean Mayor of UDD, Sandwich, to Agnes Reoma of Ben&Ben—have taken it upon themselves to keep the spirits of their fans up. They aren't going to let the coronavirus pandemic change the way music and art play a part in their lives. With videos they shared over the past few days, it's clear they're doing whatever they can to exercise their brains through this lockdown.
Gigs are cancelled, here's how you can support your favorite musicians
