While helping to raise funds for The Jerks lead vocalist/guitarist Chickoy Pura's battle against cancer, the upcoming show aims to introduce the younger generation of local music fans to the legacy of Chickoy, as performers gear up to cover a few songs by The Jerks.
Chickoy Pura is a musikero for the people, a true icon of the Filipino '80s punk scene, who created music that rebelled against tyranny and human rights violations and challenged the status quo.
Entrance to RAGE! Presents: Rak for Chickoy will be available at the door for PHP 300 (before 9 p.m.) and PHP 350 (after 9 p.m.).
