Indie Rock August is Upon Us!
August is shaping up to be an immensely exciting month for fans of indie rock and pop. This time of year when the rains have come pouring is also the time when a deluge of spectacular talent will be taking on Philippine stages to the delight of their fans.
Leading the charge on the 11th of this month are indie darlings from down under, Sheppard. Relishing the worldwide success of their burgeoning single “Geronimo,” the Sheppard siblings and friends are on their way to making a deeper mark in the international music scene with the release of similarly charming singles “Let Me Down Easy” and “Hold My Tongue”
Date and Venue: August 11, 2015 at SM Mall of Asia Music Hall

As if there is a family theme going on for August, Echosmith is slated for a return visit for their Filipino fans. The Sierota siblings’ solo concert on the 13th promises to be a bigger version of their Bazooka Rocks performance last year, and they are set to prove that they are the coolest kids in this Philippine concert season.
Date and Venue: August 13, 2015 at Samsung Hall, SM Aura

Walk the Moon
Perhaps the most surprising event for Indie Rock August is WALK THE MOON’s dates at five Ayala malls. Given the intensity and infectiousness of “Shut Up an Dance” and “Tightrope,” WALK THE MOON would be reaching out to bigger and wider Filipino audiences as they whip out a dance floor from those venues.
Date and Venue: August 18-20 at Ayala Malls

Of all the indierock gigs this August, the Manila leg of the Imagine Dragons’ Smoke + Mirrors Tour is arguably the biggest and most eagerly anticipated, and would be a fittingly explosive coup de grace for an amazing month of concerts. Considering glowing concert reviews during the band’s breakout period, expect the multi-awarded group to be a sight to behold on August 27, and prepare for thunderous renditions of their popular songs.
Date and Venue: August 27, 2015 at Mall of Asia Arena
