The Dawn Trenta: The Repeat

The Dawn - Trenta - 4
Jett Pangan and Carlos Balcells

The Dawn celebrated a repeat of their 30th anniversary at The Music Museum last night. I missed the first one that was held at the Craft BGC last September. I’m glad that I didn’t miss this one 🙂

Yes, this was certainly our party. We stood up after a few songs were already performed by the iconic Pinoy rock band The Dawn. Some were drinking beer while singing with the band while I was drinking my Rhum Cola and was taking photos in between.

Ely Buendia Live at the Music Museum

Ely Buendia Live at the Music Museum - 2

Last night, we were able to watch Ely Buendia’s solo major concert at the Music Museum. What’s special about this concert is that it’s backed up by a 15-piece orchestra!

The show started with “Alapaap” and ended with “Ang Huling El Bimbo”. Ely Buendia’s recent concert has a balanced song selection. Some songs featured are from The Eraserheads, songs from the album “Wanted BedSpacer” (post-Eraserheads era), and his collaboration with the late Francis Magalona.

Aside from the 15-piece orchestra, Ely Buendia was joined on the stage by Mayo Baluyut (bass), Romel “Sancho” Sanchez (guitars), Gox (keyboards), and Wendell Garcia (drums). Nitoy Adriano was the only special guest at the concert last night. He played with them during the song “Ang Huling El Bimbo” (watch the video here by Sharlyne Ang).

One of the songs which I think has one of the best arrangements during last night’s show is “Magasin”. It was awesome! To those who missed the show, watch the video below. 🙂 I will upload more videos soon. 🙂

Check out some of my selected photos below. 🙂

NuevoStage: Booking Service for Bands

Mashable refers NuevoStage as a Groupon for Concerts. NuevoStage is for bands who would like to book for gigs. The band will have to rely on “buyer participation” to get a gig. For instance, if a band will get 50 ticket buyers, the show will go on and the fans’ credit cards will be charged respectively. However, if a band will get less than 50 ticket buyers, the show won’t push through and the fans’ credit cards won’t be charged. Continue reading “NuevoStage: Booking Service for Bands”

Stone Temple Pilots: Live in Manila!

Stone Temple Pilots: Live in Manila - 1

Last month, Deftones had a concert in Manila. We’re supposed to watch it but the concert dates of Deftones and Stone Temple Pilots are quite near. Thus, me and Sha have to choose one. We ended up choosing Stone Temple Pilots because we like them more and of course, we both love the concert venue (Araneta Coliseum). Continue reading “Stone Temple Pilots: Live in Manila!”

Sugarfree’s Farewell Concert

Sugarfree Farewell Concert - 116

I remember when I first heard of Sugarfree’s songs, I bought a copy of their album “Sa Wakas”. I went to some of their bar gigs and joined their mailing list. I can’t believe that last night’s farewell concert is their last performance ever before the day there’s no more Sugarfree. Continue reading “Sugarfree’s Farewell Concert”

The last NU107 Rock Awards

NU107 Rock Awards 2010

It has been a long time since I went to an NU107 Rock Awards night. The last time I went to one was five years ago which was dubbed as NU107 Rock Awards 2004: Unsilent Night. This was my third time to go to NU107’s Rock Awards Night. By the way, thanks to Sha‘s officemate for giving us the tickets. 🙂 Continue reading “The last NU107 Rock Awards”
