local gig update: Rampage The Durian
'Rampage On The Airwaves', a local music podcast, celebrates its first year anniversay with a whole slew of gigs galore. They also pay tribute to Wayne 'Thunder' Seah (The Suns), a passionate local music advocate who recently passed away.
From their press release:
"This July, bringing the action to the streets, ROTA presents a weekend of spectacular home-grown music live at the Esplanade Powerhouse Stage, showcasing the brightest rising young talents in our local rock music industry.
Kicking off the event on Friday 6th July will be Rika, a promising young band playing a unique hybrid of screamo and electronica. High-energy melodic emocore outfit A Vacant Affair takes the stage next before Malaysia’s post-hardcore export Love Me Butch closes off the night.
Saturday 7th July brings the skanky ska tunes of The Sally’s, the funk-pop beats of The Pinholes and possibly the most exciting product of 2007, brit-rock outfit The Great Spy Experiment.
Closing off the series of gigs will be the infectious reggae and ska hooks of Comic Strip, onstage alongside Syawla Evol’s catchy funk-rock melodies on Sunday 8th July.
...Rampage The Durian is set to celebrate Singapore music as much as a whole year worth of podcasts, as a fitting tribute to Wayne’s passion and dedication to the local music scene."
