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.
The performance was taped at the Semicon Studios in Marikina, one of the biggest in-house studios in Manila. Dubistas and invited media were there to be the audience for this online concert. I was with some of my blogger friends (three of the awesome gig photographers) such as Juned , Rain and of course my Karla :). The lights were very conducive for photography so it’s better to take advantage of it so this became a photo shoot haven for photographers. Most of my photos were in black and white because it usually associated with the “rock” feel but I also have others in color and sepia. You may see my other photos here.
Urbandub performed 10 songs; a mixture of old and new songs. These were my favorite performances:
- “A New Tattoo” sang by Gabby with the String Quartet – It was hair raising and really brought chills in my skin.
- “First of Summer”
- “Call to Arms” – This was my first time to hear this live!
- “Come” – It’s been a long time since I’ve heard this song…
Since this was a taping, we were able to hear some songs multiple times due to technical difficulties and other reasons. Of course, they wanted to make sure that everything is perfect. The taping started around 8:30 pm and ended at 12 midnight. I can’t wait to see the whole concert online through Pelicola.Tv.
