The Rest Is Noise is packing a punch this May.

The Manila-based music curator, events production outfit, and online publication announced today its lineup for #TRIN36, which happens on May 26, 2023 at Balcony Music House in Makati, City.

The 7-act lineup includes the highly anticipated return of BLKD and Calix‘s joint performance of KOLATERAL, the 2019 hip hop album that aims to “understand and resist the [previous] Duterte Administration’s campaign against illegal drugs, colloquially known as the ‘drug war'” using data-backed research and analysis.

This is the first time that the pair will return to perform an all-KOLATERAL set since 2020, right before the pandemic has shut down live music in the country.

Other performers include singer-songwriter ena mori, who recently made noise at South by Southwest (SWSW) music festival in Austin, Texas as the sole Filipino act at this year’s edition; T33G33, Aly Cabral’s experimental/electronic pop alter-ego; Hey June!, an alt-rock newcomer; LONER, a two-step/garage music producer; and Pedicab, an iconic dance-rock outfit.
