Last Saturday night me and wifey went to a couple of shows which afforded us visual treats and partial hearing loss.
A free ticket is a free ticket so off we went to Paranaque and we watched this show called "WANDERS" at PAGCOR Grand Theater. We had a front seat so we had a spectacular view of those
As usual we came late to the venue.Good thing they let us in even if the show has already started. Admittedly my knowledge about this fiasco is next to zero so when I first looked at those Chinese/Korean looking guys on stage doing circus stuff, I thought I was witnessing a stage version of Crouching Tiger but hey.. someone has spoken Tagalog! and was it Calvin Millado
The show was done with fast faced performances and a live band served as background. All in all it was a great show especially for the kids. I liked the drum sequence of Maneuvers and the Russian Babes were sooo...
We went straight to Eastwood after our stint at Paranaque.It was already 11PM and I thought we were running late for Riki's ear splitting set, but surprise! the show hasn't even started yet. Well since we also haven't had dinner yet we filled our stomachs with some cheese fries and pizza ala dredd... but something really bothered me suddenly.. I remembered I forgot to bring. EAR MUFFS! LOL.
eardrums check-within normal hearing
The show started with stereo-what'sthatnameagain? band and a series of punk rock renditions were heared. Wifey was already complaining about the loud speakers but hey, the place was so cramped we might as well get the hell out of that place! but were here to support Riki remember?..so we tried our best to enjoy "the cures-boys don't cry".
Next on stage was one of Riki's many Band called Chardonnay! Applause! Applause!.
They had a brand new girl with a foreign accent.wow!
She also sang barefooted!.
enough said hahaha!.
eardrums check-mildly blasted
Then came Mayonnaise.Don't know much about this band other than they already had an album and has gained airplay on mainstream radio. Later on I goggled that they've won this RedHorse Muziklaban back in 2004 and has released several albums and singles.
I had to admit they were rather very good.Three kids formed the band and they played solid music. I especially enjoyed their tagalog originals and has gained my respect as a groupie.
eardrums check-partially deaf
We decided to pay our bill and head out of that pressure chamber but the waiter took a long time so we were able to watch the final band called "Hoods Of Nature?"
Finally the bills were paid and we had fresh morning air.
eardrums check-blasted to oblivion
