Emerging Pinoy rock band IV of Spades
If local funk is more your speed, breakout indie band IV of Spades will also be bringing their signature sound to the stage this month. Recently hailed as Myx Music Awards’ New Artist of the Year for 2018, IV of Spades gained massive popularity with their catchy, refreshing retro-inspired tunes like “Hey Barbara” and “Mundo”—as well as for their slick, ‘70s-inspired outfits. Get into the groove with Zild Benitez, Badjao de Castro, and Blaster Silonga as they rock the Shang on Aug. 25, 7:00 p.m. at the Grand Atrium.

Meanwhile, the music madness at the Shang kicks off with world-famous John Ford Coley, one-half of the duo that gave us iconic soft rock ballads that we still love to sing today, like “I’d Really Love to See You Tonight,” “It’s Sad to Belong,” “We’ll Never Have to Say Goodbye Again,” and so much more. Watch and sing along favorite throwback hits as this legendary American singer conquers the stage tomorrow, Aug. 12, 7:00 p.m. at the Grand Atrium.
