Last July 15, Saturday, Crossroads Cebu, Create Cebu, Qube Gallery, and Island Premium Paints successfully launched CEVOLUTIÓN, a public art exhibit that pushed Cebu even further as a city destination for culture and the arts.
The exhibit unveiled murals by Cebuano contemporary artists KIDLAT, DAOT, Lean Reboja, Golda King, Ivan Zaldarriaga, and Ronyel Compra, who, over the past few weeks blasted the surrounding exterior walls of Crossroads, making it a sight to behold.
22 Tango Records joined the movement by bringing homegrown music to the event, which highlighted the diversity of expression and imagination. The line-up had a number of 22 Tango virgins, as well as old friends, which was a refreshing and exciting experience.
With a whole lot of indie pop rock and hints of soul, Thinking Chair opened up the show and set the right mood for the evening.
Up next were the boys of The Crisis, who gave old school punk a new school twist.
Groovematics brought the house down and kept everyone grooving to their feel-good hip-hop/funk sound.
Loop’s hard hitting tunes and Kim’s quiet confidence as the front woman make them one of the bands who truly take music seriously.
Three-Legged Men delivered their well-loved charisma and sound of blues and jazz wrapped in a cloud of pop.
The ladies of Silingan ni Felicity brought an energy and spirit to the stage that could only come from them.
Capping off the night was Bethany who always manage to leave words of inspiration apart from putting on a kickass alternative rock show.
