Pinoy Rock bands of the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s in benefit gig for Ka Randy
Three famous Pinoy Rock bands, each of which gained popularity in their own generations, are set to perform in a benefit concert for the immediate release of militant peasant leader Randall “Ka Randy” Echanis on Thursday.
The concert, dubbed as “TINIG 3… Awitan para sa Lupa, Kalayaan, at Katotohanan, Benefit Gig for the Immediate Release of Ka Randy Echanis” was organized by the Tinig ng Silangan Party Alliance Alumni Association (TNSPAAA) and the Free Randall Echanis Movement (Freedom).
The benefit gig highlights the performance of progressive artists from the 70’s to the 90’s which includes Lolita Carbon of Asin, a famous Pinoy rock band in the 70’s; Chicoy Pura of the alternative rock band The Jerks of the 80’s, Bobby Balingit of the punk-rock band The Wuds of the 90’s, and various artists.
“The combination of the three famous progressive artists and their music from three different generations is a concrete personification of Ka Randy’s lifelong struggle,” says Freedom spokesperson Ranmil Echanis.
Leaders of progressive people’s organizations like Bagong Alyansang Makabayan secretary general Renato Reyes Jr. and various artists including poet Axel Pinpin of the Tagaytay 5 are also set to give their piece.
