2nd Installment of This is Not a Punk Show

Second installment of a four week event at Kalye Art Gallery, featuring the local talents that we have on the local punk scene. On this leg there will be a film showing like The Edge, a perspective on a drug free culture and straight edge,Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi), Ray Cappo (Youth of Today, Shelter) and Karl Buechner (Earth Crisis, Freya) give witness to their perception of the history of Straight Edge, why it was so important to them and what it changed in their personal and professional careers. But they also address problems like violence, sexism and intolerance that emerged within Straight Edge, and how it changed the ‘scene’ as well as its public image.

Furthermore, EDGE explores the lives of 9 individuals, that identify as Straight Edge. Their reasons range from negative experiences with drugs to maintaining a healthy lifestyle to political reasons. Through a very close and personal look into their daily lives, we see how their decision to live ‘poison free’ has changed the world for them.

Another film that would be shown is Inside Outside, this is about artists who works on the street. The artist featured on this film face some kind of dilemma with restrictions and norms of the society they live in, the forces fo the commercial art world and the advertising industry who are looking for the next big thing and want to have their bite of the energy and coolness that the street art is brimming with. 

There will be some discussion about the films and some performances from our local hardcore punk bands (check flier for listing). For more info visit diypinoyhcpunk

043 HC/Punk supports One Day Without Shoes

On April 5, ANCILLA. ORG will conduct the walk for a cause at Batangas City. This walk for a cause entitled "ONE DAY WITHOUT SHOES" is annual event hosted by TOMS Shoes in cooperation with our organization. It might be hot, it'll probably be uncomfortable, and our feet will certainly get dirty, but by doing so, we'll help raise awareness of the impact a simple pair of shoes can bring to a child's life. Your involvement will captivate and educate the province of Batangas, and impact the lives of children around the world. If you could change the lives of children with a simple gesture, would you do for one day what hundreds of poor Batangueño's do everyday?

This April 5, please lead by going barefoot, and help mobilize Batangas City to be a part of ONE DAY WTHOUT SHOES. 

For those who are interested to give donations in any form please go to HOT and COLD cafe at Kumintang Ilaya, Batangas City, our head quarters or call landline no.: 043-723-0556 mobile no.0905-4399738.

For those who want to join the "ANCILLA.ORG" pls come to hot and cold cafe for registration. For more info pls call 0905-4399738.

Across the sea #4 PROOF "Blood Money EP"

PROOF is a hardcore-metal band formed in 2007 in Bucharest,Romania.And they have an EP called "Blood Money" released in 2010 which is heavy and fast, plus an astonishing vocals from George. Reminds me a lot of bands like Hatebreed and First Blood. This guys are already a veteran in the scene, already played and toured with bands like Born From Pain,Death Before Dishonor,Ignite,No Turning Back, Last Hope, Manifestation, Confronto, The Setup, Burn The 8 Track, Bleed Into One, Nine Eleven, Deathdrive and many more.

One thing thats missing though in this free download is the lyrics. As a hardcore fan myself I always look into the lyrics, because we cannot get all those words or message you put into the songs while your singing or screaming, which is important. And that is one reason why we are here as well. Though its a free download I still hope they can include the lyrics in their future downloads. Because we are not looking for some good hardcore music here we are also looking for the message that can enventually change our life in any way.

PROOF is currently working their first full lenght album.

This is our official Facebook page: www.listn.to/proofmusic

- They just send me the lyrics of their songs and you can download it here as well.

And if you want to send us some materials or anything just send us an email at batangashcpunk@gmail.com so I can give you the address.
