If Zines Could Talk (DIYPINOYHCPUNK Zine Convention, Punk Bazaar, and Veggie Fest)

This is the last installment of the month long DIYPINOYHCPUNK "This IS Not A Punk Show" celebration. hopefully, this event will inspire to roll out a "physical zine" again. It's been years since the last time I fold a photocopied cut n' paste paper. Fortunately, there are still fanzines left in the wild, such as I Remember Halloween, Real Tight Crew, Konspira Zine, Incidental Afterthought, Aspire, Beleive, and few more.  

Nowadays, it’s pretty rare to find a print zine without an online presence (or should i say e-zine, like this one?), but still, printed zine or tangible object are far more valuable. Aside from zines, five of my fave bands will be playing. Its expected to see a Guerra Mundial to hit the stage laughing while banging the night with their unique "DIS" tune. Malolos pop punkers The diary Of The Old Mango Tree reminds of me some 90's skate punk band. Ginseng will definitely treat you with their post-punk tune. This will be the final show of Shirley Steinberg, they remind me of some Ebullution-styled hardcore - a good mix of technical hardcore and melodic breakdowns. Hope to see Monochrome close the show, I mean their songs fits perfectly to end a show, and all you have to do is to stand or sit listen, watch , and be amaze. To those uninitiated, Monochrome is a post-rock band with solid Mono / This Will Destroy You backbone.

More details about the event posted here.
