You wouldn’t want to miss Fiere 2019, A Spur of the Moment’s anniversary music series

July 03, 2019 – alike Editorial Team

Manila-based record label and music events production A Spur of the Moment is producing a string of exclusive shows in celebration of its seventh anniversary.

The production kicked off its show series in June with the Fête de la Musique festival Post-Rock/Math Rock offering, with one show in the next three months, including two exclusive pocket shows and will culminate at a special anniversary showcase in September.

The first of the two “silent” shows will be held on July 27, 2019, Saturday, at Acceler8 Finman in Salcedo Village, Makati City, Philippines. It will feature extended sets from indie rock quartet Oh, Flamingo! and dance-rock band Taken By Cars.



Label manager and producer Li Perez promises “a new experience for would-be attendees” with the silent shows, a shift from the current format featured on Spur’s regular bimonthly showcase. But the concept is not new to Li as a producer, having executed the same format before. “I just wanted to add value to the shows; thus, the decision to make it a silent show. You see them play live but, at the same time, there's the absence of noise that you usually encounter in a live music setup,” she notes.

A Spur of the Moment regulars and fans of the bands are in for a new live music experience. Tickets for the silent shows are pre-sold online for P500 for each show. No walk-ins will be allowed. Fans can purchase an all-access pass to all three shows: both silent shows and the anniversary showcase for P1500.

Founded in September 2012, A Spur of the Moment Project is an events production and record label based in Manila, Philippines dedicated to post-rock, math rock and its derivative. Its roster of acts currently include tide/edit, Degs and Gabba, Fools and Foes, Trippy Oh!, Luncheon, and Run Dorothy from the Philippines, and January from Thailand. For more details, check A Spur of the Moment’s official website and its social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
