The event held at club Ichonic at Ngong road showcased the best Kenyan Rock had to offer. Popular band Murfy’s Flaw, ParkingLotGrass,Last Year’s Tragedy, Koinange Street Avengers, Claymore Project and Moment of Silence performed at Nairobi Rock Fest. And to top it all off, South African swine core band, Boargasm headlined the concert. The band thrilled Kenyan crowds all the while donning pig masks (as is their MO). Prominent DJs such as Gordo the ‘rock guru,’ Knord and Hue also featured on the decks.
Rock takes the street followed on the 11th at changes Pub. Murfy’s Flaw, Claymore Project and ParkinglotGrass performed at this event. Last Year’s Tragedy also launched their EP, Challenge accepted.
