Cebu metal scene marks freedom, bands gather for worthy causes

AS THE adage goes, music speaks when words can’t express your feelings. In this time of need, metalheads are gathering not just to experience a whole day good music but also to support a bigger purpose.

Two well-liked members of the local music scene are now dealing with life-or-death situations that urgently need expensive medical treatment and substantial financial assistance.

The Panatang Makabayan (Independence Day Woodstock Concert) will be held at Hoops Dome in Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu, from 8 a.m. on June 11, 2023 to midnight.

This Woodstock-inspired event brings together 47 talented local bands from across the province of Cebu to create an unforgettable experience and aims to showcase the diversity and depth of the local music scene.

Also, according to Vhanlynar Ugbinada of Opon Music Production, the proceeds from the event will be dedicated to the beneficiaries’ hospitalization and concert expenses. Members of the Cebu underground music scene treat each other as a family.

Both beneficiaries are Choy Navasquez, the lead singer of Genova, who is currently in a coma after an unfortunate accident. Meanwhile, Jill Ryza Pintac, the niece of the guitarist of White Walls, recently is a cancer survivor who recently just got operated.

“A routing donation box will also be placed during the concert,” Ugbinada said.

This event, sponsored by the Lapu-Lapu City Government, is a tribute to the city’s thriving music industry and dedication to supporting local talents. This concert not only honors Cebu’s rich musical legacy but also exemplifies the values of community and compassion.

Music enthusiasts from all walks of life come together to celebrate their shared passion. The stage will be ablaze with electrifying performances, heart-pounding melodies and mind-blowing guitar solos that will mesmerize the audience. Most of all, it is evidence of how the metal community in Cebu is active when a problem arises; everyone is willing to help.
