When Taken By Cars played SXSW in 2012, the folks at Super Astig put together a fundraiser show for them. So I was hoping that there would be something for Flying Ipis. It goes to show, when you ask the universe, the universe will answer. This Saturday, March 12th, Flying Ipis will be playing two shows in Los Angeles. There are only 20 TICKETS per show. This means each show will be super awesome & intimate! This show is going to be rad. I can't wait to dance around to some kick ass music. Get your tickets now!

Flying Ipis is an all-girl, garage punk rock quartet hailing from Manila, Philippines. Composed by Deng Garcia on vocals/guitars, Ymi Castel on guitars, Tanya Singh on bass, and Gaki Azurin on drums, the ban_d’s notoriously cheeky name ("ipis" = "cockroach" in English) endeared them and their music to rising cult status. Originally formed in the corridors of an all-girl, Catholic high school, Flying Ipis debuted their music in the local circuit with The Flying EP in 2009.
In 2011, Flying Ipis formally joined LockedDown Entertainment, where they released their first full-length album, Give Ipis A Chance (2013) – which included their widely acclaimed singles, ‘Sssikreto’ and ‘Past is Past, Bitch!’ A cut from the same album, ‘This Song Is About You’ was a part of the soundtrack for the multi-awarded Cinemalaya film, Ang Nawawala. They have been featured by several print and online publications (PULP, STATUS, Meg, Clavel, Mabuhay Magazine) and music websites (PinoyTuner, Radio Republic, Amplify,ph, NDFY.me, Vandals On The Wall) and is an endorser of local lifestyle and clothing brand, Team Manila.
Known for their infectiously, borderline dangerous, energy on stage, Flying Ipis successfully and consistently translates the palpable mania of their music from the studio to an audience of ranging scale. The band has opened for international acts Japandroids and Metric, played for local rock fests and festivals, notably the Oktoberfest, Fete de la Musique, and the Jack Daniel’s Indie Fest.
