Flying Ipis - live at The Music Room on 20th May

Flying Ips, an all-girl, garage punk rock band from Manila, Philippines will perform live at The Music Room this weekend, on Friday, 20th May 2016.

More about them via Gulf News

The band’s notoriously cheeky name (“ipis” means cockroach in English) has given them and their music to rising cult status.

Originally formed in the corridors of an all-girl, Catholic high school, the band paid their dues in their hometown, releasing an EP in 2009 and their first full-length album, Give Ipis a Chance in 2013. They are busy gearing up for their second album, The Roach Motel, to be released later this year.

They recently performed at SXSW in Austin, so it's exciting to find out Dubai will get to see them live too.

Tickets for the event is AED 100, doors open at 8.00pm. The opening acts include the following Dubai based bands, so overall, should be a packed night of punk rock and roll.

Watch and listen to a couple of tracks by Flying Ipis tracks below, you can hear more on their Soundcloud account.
