Went out last week to watch the #SugarSmashGin concert w/ a friend. I have heard of this event months ago but never thought I’d actually come out and watch them. Why? Financial reasons, what else is new? However, I had thoughts that out of the three bands playing.. GB would be be the one I would watch out for. Little did I know that they’ve already been here before, and that this is not the first time they’re visiting the Philippines to play a show.
And then, the sudden turn out of events revealed a surprise that I would be, once again, watching a concert I had zero hopes of even going to, for free. It was a last minute thing: Shereen won tickets a few hours before the concert. She rang me and asked if I was available to go out that night. I was in the middle of catching up w/ The Mindy Project when she called. :)) But the gist of the conversation was I said yes and I hurriedly left the house to get to the venue.
PS: What do you think of the GIF as a banner for my future events-related posts? :)) I figure that since I shoot in burst mode, might as well find a use for these other photos so they won’t go to waste. Yay or nay?
I rarely get to watch local bands anymore because of #brokeassbloggerproblems reasons but recently, I made time to come out and watch the collaboration event of ISTPh w/ 3 other local street teams in the PH and Alay Productions. And I’m glad I did. Continue reading →
Radio Republic held a benefit concert last August 25 for the victims of Typhoon Maring. Over 50 artists gathered for this cause. I didn’t stick long but I heard that the event went from 1PM-3AM the next day? Wow that’s a lot of artists, all helping out for the same cause. I also heard that the folks over at RR only had 3-4 days to setup the whole event? That’s pretty amazing, kudos to the people behind the production! Continue reading →
Would you look at that… I had accepted the fact that I won’t be watching my all-time favorite band during their concert here months ago, BUT the universe conspired and made it possible for me to go to their show in the last minute.
Linkin Park, wala kayong kupas! You performed your old songs flawlessly. It felt like I was taken aback to my teenage years as soon as I heard that familiar intro from one of your songs in Hybrid Theory during the first set! Goosebumps by the first song. No other band I’ve seen in a concert has made me experience that. :))
I was part of a team that produced a blockscreening event for Enchong’s indie film “Tuhog” last month. Everything was done in a short span of time, sometimes it’s hard to believe that we were able to do everything in such a rush. We partnered up with EA group from the US too.
Of all the events that I was fortunate to be one of its producers (or should I just say “organizer”?), I feel like this is the most extravagant one yet. Just the place itself where it was held is already bongga! Haha. I don’t think anything would be able to top that anytime soon.
Here are some photos. I did not get to take a photo nor get a hi-hello from good ol’ E because I was busy trying to accommodate everyone and at the same time document everything (as much as possible?).
Before hitting the cinemas, we had dinner at Recipes first. The photos were still taken by me, only it’s using different watermarks because these are the photos for documentary purposes of the group. :))
