Also billed as a send-off event, SOS DESU KA, SOS DESU NE, took place on November 4, 2022 (Friday) at 7PM in 123 Block, Mandaluyong City.
SOS will headline the co-produced show, performing crowd favorites as well as new releases.
“We’ve been independent as independent can be over the past 15 years.” said vocalist Roberto Seña.
“This year, we will be traveling to Japan for our first show there ever. If you didn’t
know, showcase festivals are investments for a band in hopes to branch out on a global/regional scale so we pay for everything ourselves. If our friends/fans/listeners would be so kind, we are asking for a little help to take us there. We’ve never really done anything like this before and I’m just thankful to everyone helping us out. We hope to make you guys proud!” He added.
Sharing the stage are guest acts Cheats, Ang Bandang Shirley, Ena Mori, and The
Itchyworms. The latter is also handpicked to grace the maiden edition of the international showcase festival. It will host a combination of Japanese and international music acts.
The multi-lineup gig is co-presented by The Rest Is Noise PH. Performing in its first show since the pandemic, and GNN Entertainment.
“We are proud to support SOS in their first Japan show in Tokyo.” says MC Galang, co-founder of The Rest Is Noise PH and ASEAN Music Showcase Festival.
The Tokyo Beyond Festival will take place in Shibuya, Tokyo, on November 26 and 27, 2022.
