Manila Disco Fever in Concert
May 9, 2019, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

House Opens at 5:00 p.m.
Concert Begins at 6:30 p.m.

The first ever evening concert in the Globe’s free AXIS performing art series! Break out your bellbottoms and take a trip back in time to the Filipino disco songs of Manila Sound, a musical genre that emerged in 1970s Filipino nightclubs and has seen a resurgence in recent years. Inspired by American disco, funk, and pop, Manila Sound mixed Filipino musicality, catchy melodies, and a laid-back style to create what some call the Golden Age of Pinoy music. The dance floor will be open, so get ready to boogie! Singing along and dancing can create an appetite. Not to worry! Aunty Lynne’s Food Truck will be on our plaza selling delicious authentic and fusion cuisine from around the Pacific Rim!

Tickets are required for admission. Last day to reserve tickets is May 2, 2019.
