The countdown begins, as MCA Universal’s Get Music Indie-Go promises rare, full-on production performances from the country’s finest musical acts.


Do you know where you’ll be this Saturday?

The most passionate lovers of local music are literally counting-down the days, and the excitement can barely be contained as MCA Universal’s Get Music Indie-Go – what is probably the biggest assembly of local independent artists to date in an arena-sized venue – promises to pull-out all the stops, as the local music scene’s best bands and artists aim to outdo each other in the spirit of friendly competition… and in the name of raising the standard to world-class performances.

To be held at the prestigious Mall of Asia Arena this May 20th, artists like modern rock outfit AUTOTELIC, smooth and sexy, R&B-flavored acts like SUD, JENSEN & THE FLIPS, CONSCIOUS & THE GOODNESS and MILESEXPERIENCE, electronic artist SOMEDAYDREAM, hip-hop savvy NINNO, femme favorites SHE’S ONLY SIXTEEN, all-around darling of the music scene REESE LANSANGAN, and former URBANDUB vocalist/guitarist/chief songwriter GABBY ALIPE, are all anxious to deliver the goods in what will be performances that fans will not be able to catch anywhere else; in short – this is definitely one for the books, and fans are expected to be talking about this gargantuan display of talent long after this momentous occasion.


With creative direction by Paolo Valenciano and his team, the anticipation for Saturday’s festivities has transformed into a fervid excitement as the word continues to spread online through various social media sites and music-related groups. Through MCA Universal’s main advocacy of bringing local Filipino musicians together and offering the chance-of-a-lifetime for them to perform on a humongous stage, the show’s reach also aims to be a cultural-exchange of sorts as an independent band from Malaysia, AN HONEST MISTAKE will be flown-in and welcomed as part of the roster. And to further sweeten the deal, MCA has tied-up with the country’s top colleges and schools – STLO from University of the Philippines, PAPAPETA from University of Santo Tomas, THE COHENS Ateneo De Manila University and MATTY JUNIOSA from De La Salle University – being on the lookout for the future superstars in the local music game as lucky young artists will be opening the festivities early-on in a satellite stage inside the MOA Arena.

So hurry up and don’t think twice, as everyone’s expected to be at the Mall of Asia Arena this Saturday, May 20th as the best of the best are going to let its collective voice be heard once more, and chalks-up another victory for the local music scene in a humongous way. Tickets are still available through SM Tickets and interested parties can either log on to their site, or call +632.470.2222 for inquiries and reservations. Keep posted to MCA Music’s Facebook page: https://web.facebook.com/mcamusic for more information.

This is your final chance to witness greatness in motion. Be sure to bring your friends and spread the word to anyone who gives a damn, and is proud of our local music.
