Barriers just don’t work at punk-hardcore shows in the Philippines 🙂
Pinoy punk legends Betrayed (originally formed in 1986) were playing a show recently when the crowd full of punks weren’t having the barrier. Bouncers put up a struggle but eventually just had to step back and let the punks have their fun. Apparently barriers were not only dismantled but bars on the barriers themselves were ripped off.
A similar thing happened the first time Sick of it All played in the Philippines in 2015 where midway through their set the barrier got destroyed and the legends SOIA said from the stage “How about we just get rid of these barriers?” (Check out the video further below of hardcore kids taking the barriers out from that show)
Check out the video and enjoy! Moral of the story, don’t mess with Pinoy punks and hardcore kids.

This is the actual song that led to the punks losing their minds:
