Rock Bosch 2 at Saguijo Cafe: Pupil, Sandwich, Chillitees, Sugarfree, Itchyworms, Southsuperhighway, Top Junk and Join the Club

The second leg of the series of benefit gigs for Anabel Bosch happened last January 9 at Saguijo Cafe in Makati. The band line up was really good and because of that Saguijo was filled with people as early as 8 pm. Usually the place gets filled up around 11pm -12 midnight. And the funny thing was, the Eraserheads Mailing Listers (a.k.a Circus Mailing Listers) actually filled half of the place. Of course even though the band had already disbanded we would still support the individual member’s respective bands and at that night Sandwich (Raymund’s band) and Pupil ( Ely’s band) was there to perform. There aren’t any chairs left to sit so Karla and I decided to stand infront of the mic. (If you have been in Saguijo, you know what I’m talking about) Well, Saguijo is just a small place and there’s no stage so from where I am standing at that time, I was literally infront of the vocalist ( So for more picture opportunity for me! 😉 )

This was a Rock Ed gig but Gang Badoy wasn’t there yet so there were proxy hosts for her. They already have sponsors that night such as Slenda and Enduranz, so the hosts had some games and gift packs to give away. I actually won a Slenda DVD (it’s an advantage being right infront of the host haha). Well anyway, here is the order of the bands: South Superhighway, Sugarfree, Top Junk, Chillitees, Itchyworms, Pupil, Sandwich and Join the Club.

Elmer Ona of South Superhighway or SLEX 🙂

Sugarfree – Ebe Dancel (vocals), Jal Taguibao (guitars) and Kaka Quisumbing (drums)

South Superhighway is a band composed of members namely Elmer Ona on vocals/guitars, Ben Riego on guitars, Vhall Riddle on bass and Shinji Tanaka on drums. It’s my first time to see them perform. Their songs are feel good, not so heavy.  After SLEX, Sugarfree performed their old songs like Burnout, Kwarto, Prom etc. They also performed a new song entitled “Hay Buhay” from their newest album which will be released this year. It’s a positive song about life. Ebe even forgot the title when I asked him about it. hehe.  Have a sneak peek of it below 🙂 Continue reading “Rock Bosch 2 at Saguijo Cafe: Pupil, Sandwich, Chillitees, Sugarfree, Itchyworms, Southsuperhighway, Top Junk and Join the Club”

Admit ONE gig: Reunion fever is on!

I know that this is a super late post but I will still post it for my sake 🙂

Even Admit One is riding the bandwagon for reunion gigs. Last Wed, August 20th Admit One was in Saguijo Cafe in Makati. Bands that performed were: Cambio, Sugarfree, Twisted Halo, Fatal Posporos and Blast Ople. It was the night of reunions you know why? Sugarfree performed with their former drummer Mitch.  It was nostalgic of my college days because that’s the time when Mitch was still there. Sugarfree was singing their songs from “Unang Araw” their first album.

Sugarfree Live! now available

This is great news for Sugarfree fans out there. This is a 2 disc album the first cd contains 19 tracks featuring the Sugarfree major concert together with The Manila Symphony Orchestra last Sept 29, 2007 at the Music Museum. For those fans who weren’t able to catch that concert ( like me, boohoo) you will have the opportunity to listen to it. Also, it contains a limited edition “Pugad Dencio” cd ( offer good while supplies last). For those who do not know, Sugarfree is now the endorser of Dencio’s as what you can observe on all of the Dencio’s restaurants they have their posters there ( together with the Pugad Baboy characters 🙂 ) You can check Dencio’s website here.
