When I learned that the original Sugar Hiccup line up will reunite, I said to myself that I HAVE TO WITNESS THIS! I reserved a table in 12 Monkeys but lost it because we were late. It’s ok, I can stand in one corner. For as long as I have an open spot to shoot. I’ve never taken a photo of Sugar Hiccup. I mean, I was in 6th grade (1996) when I saw them live at the 1896 Ang Pagsilang Concert in Folk Arts Theater. I didn’t have a camera then so it’s all part of my good ol’ memories.

The band’s name sounded very interesting too – they’re called Moonpools and Caterpillars. Totally clueless, I listened to this album called, “Lucky Dumpling”.

On April 11th, I watched their final performance at the Amber Ultralounge with my partner Karla. Continue reading “And the 90’s Nostalgia Goes On – Moonpools and Caterpillars Reunites in Manila”
I’ve never watched a live gig at Tiendesitas before and they say that there’s a fun crowd there. Last Oct 16th, I accompanied Karla in Tiendesitas to cover a gig there. Didn’t actually know that it was their 7th year anniversary.
I only know Tiendesitas to be the one stop shop for pets, pet accessories and even supplies. They have a food court which converts to a giant “beer house” at night. A stage was set up there for the gig. There’s good lighting especially for those who shoot bands like us. There are some technical difficulties once in a while but all in all it was great. It was warm there though, imagine if it was summer. Continue reading “Wolfgang, Razorback and Tito Boys”
