Contrasting inescapable rhythms with lyrical themes that explore realist jadedness, Filipino band SOS galvanises with their striking live performances.
Ticket-holders are advised to arrive at the venue early, as unutilised tickets may be offered to walk-in patrons, on a first-come, first-served basis once the performance has started. This will enable as many people as possible to join us for this free performance.
Ticket-holders who leave the venue during the performance will have to join the queue for walk-in patrons in order to re-enter the venue.
If you are unable to join us, you may pass the e-ticket to someone else or return your tickets via the link on your SISTIC confirmation email.
SOS (pronounced like “sauce”) is an alternative band from Manila, Philippines. Formerly known as She’s Only Sixteen, members Roberto Seña (vocals, guitar, synths), Andrew Panopio (guitar), Anjo Silvoza (bass), Ram Alonzo (keys, synths), and King Puentespina (drums, synths) derive their influences from genre-and era-spanning styles: juxtaposing occasionally anthemic, often inescapable rhythms with lyrical themes that explore realist jadedness in almost real-time weariness, as well as human complexities with lush, buoyant production styles.
This irony is at the core of the band’s galvanising live performances, where they project human fallibility—strikingly—with both tenderness and animosity. SOS has performed extensively in their home country of the Philippines and across Asia, including Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, and Japan. Their latest track Roses and their upcoming new double EP are their first release under Careless Music.
