On Friday, 29th of October, the annual This is Egg Day event held in the Philippines resumed with the intent of honoring the late Gilbert “Egg” Santos. This year, due to COVID, the nine participating bands were required to play via webstreams through Facebook. The bands from the local community played energetic sets exploding through people’s digital screens.
Check out this full recap of the event:
“True to the previous This Is Egg Day gigs, the bill was a mix of different subgenres of punk. The show started with Spanky’s (Kobra Kids) new band, Badwave, igniting the set with a cover of Regulate’s Regulate II/Zero Tolerance. Next was Clean Slate, a staple of the annual This is Egg Day right from when the band first formed.
Two bands from Batangas, REACT and Stick to Die, were up next with both of their sets being recorded at Hardcore Hope. While on stage, React’s vocalist, Paul, spoke about the time he spent with Egg and how they met each other in the mid-00’s.
The show continued with Tidal, Collect, and Gravity Lock, which brought some balance to the in-your-face hardcore that the first four bands unleashed on the world. These particular 3 bands brought their own brand of emo/DC summer revolution/alt-rock sound to the event.
Up next were the final two bands, Catpuke and Barred, who respectively brought their punk and metallic hardcore energy to close out the event.
Proceeds from the show went directly to Egg’s family. Organizers believed this is the best way to do it.
As of writing, the recorded livestream has 4.9k views and was shared by 266 people, with 1.2k comments, mostly gang vocals done through live chat.”
