Ben&Ben, Itchyworms, Sponge Cola + More to Send Off Route 196 in Free Virtual Gig

Route 196 is saying goodbye, but not without one last great gig.

( With the Katipunan joint Route 196 officially closing its doors for the last time, we now have one less thing to look forward to if normal ever becomes a thing again. But before you start your walk down memory lane, here's a chance to make new ones. Route 196 is holding "One for the Road," a farewell gig and fundraiser on Saturday, September 12, via Facebook Live. The best part? You can watch the acts for free online!


We finally have the full line up for this Saturday's farewell gig. Sounding off for Route 196 one last time are Clara Benin, Johnoy Danao, Ebe Dancel, She's Only Sixteen, Sponge Cola, Itchyworms, Ben&Ben, and much more. You can also buy tickets for Zoom meet-and-greet sessions with selected acts for P300 each until September 9, 6 p.m through their forms. "Proceeds will be of great help to our staff," they noted on their Facebook post. Just note that not all acts will be able to join the virtual meet and greet!


Route 196 announced that they were closing their doors on August 23, more than four years after they first started operations. The gig spot was the place to go for good food, drinks, and of course, live music, with local and international acts rocking out in the relatively tiny space. Be sure not to miss the last of what's sure to be a wild Route 196 night!
