Urbandub’s First Decade Online Concert

P1030269

Urbandub is now celebrating its 10th year anniversary and they have something new for the Dubistas here in Manila and even abroad. The band just recently taped their online concert that will be shown in Pelicola.tv. This was made possible through Globe Tattoo and Pelicola.tv and guess what, this is URBANDUB’S FIRST DECADE ONLINE CONCERT which will be shown on APRIL 2010. Thanks to my friend Coy Caballes from Globe for giving me a chance to participate in this rare event. I really got excited because I have been listening to Urbandub since I first heard “Soul Searching” and didn”t stop raving about this band. Continue reading “Urbandub’s First Decade Online Concert”

Obsidian Bar and Grill will be the newest rock gig destination in Manila located specifically at the Ortigas Home Depot. We are inviting all of you to come and join us at the Weekend Launch Party on March 12 and 13. You better not miss this because really cool local bands will be performing (please see poster above)! Not sure yet about the entrance fee but I guess it’s just the normal P150. The food here is great and the beer is really cheap so this is the place to be when you want to watch local bands and chill out.

Hope to see you there!

Paramore Rocked Manila and I’m Glad to Be There

Paramore in Manila 14

There’s a written phrase in Hayley’s wrist which says “Kamusta Kayo”?

Paramore rocked SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds last night! The concert grounds were packed of Parawhores (fans of Paramore) and almost everybody were singing Paramore’s songs. The Philippines is fortunate to be the last stop on their tour before they come back to their homeland.   Karla and I got VIP tickets, courtesy of Coy Caballes of Globe, but I think we were actually at the Gold area. I heard that the VIPs were transferred to the Gold area at the last minute while the Gold ticket holders were transferred to the VIP section. Allegedly, this was a demand from the foreign production because they “didn’t want the VIPs to be hurt”. For me, it didn’t really matter because I think that the section we’re in was much better than being in the frontmost. I guess it didn’t matter to me because I did not spend a single dime to get a hold of my ticket. But don’t get me wrong, I actually feel for the people who have bought the tickets and did not get the satisfaction they were expecting. If I were in their place, I’d definitely be furious. I just hope that the organizers or production will settle this. We want Paramore to back here in Manila so I guess they really have to fix things.

Sights and Sounds of UP Fair

UP Fair Crowd

UP Fair is one of my most anticipated events every year. Aside from the simple affiliation of being a UP alumna, I’ve had a blast during UP Fairs during my college years and even after graduation. It’s really different whenever I’m there. I feel I’m home. Even though many people say that UP fairs are always dangerous and unsafe to go, I really don’t care. During UP Fairs, the crowds are always a mixture of the grungy emo kids, UP and non-UP students, yuppies, artists and many more. Watching bands while I am at the audience is always a thrill for me and it really doesn’t matter if I stand for a couple of hours.  Continue reading “Sights and Sounds of UP Fair”
