In case you haven’t heard, legendary hang-out B-Side has shut down, weeks after it was rumored that the iconic hotspot would be removed to make way for a new high-rise condo.
B-Side held a free, farewell concert last September 29, and while it was a sentimental moment for fans
Hanggang sa muli, B-Side.Maraming maraming salamat.
The event was marred by an insane riot caused by unruly concertgoers
According to netizen Loveda Raña, the confrontation began when the B-Side’s main gate was closed off by the guards to prevent a horde of minors from getting into the venue.
Zombie apocalypse last night! ??? ayan na Bside mag ingay!!!!!! ? paalam bside!!! ???? super wild party grabeeeee! ??…
In spite of the security’s best efforts, the rioters were still able to push through the blockade. The staff eventually relented and allowed everyone to enter the party.
‘Sana wala masyadong mga nasaktan! Dami minors nagpupumilit pumasok kaloka! Sa huli wala na ding nagawa eh.. binuksan na lang gate since na last gig naman na hayss..’
Even Saab Magalona’s band (The Cheats) had to cancel their performance due to the commotion
Saab shared a vid of the incident which showed the people climbing thru a broken glass door of a restaurant while B-Side’s security fends off the crowd.
Crowd outside Bside started shouting and cursing at the guards to let them in. They broke the glass door of Wingman and were climbing the gates. Video taken by our drummer. Not enough security for a free concert. We had to leave. Pls be careful! pic.twitter.com/7z7OULm51A
