Romantic Punch – a band from South Korea

Romantic Punch

While we were walking along the streets of Hongdae, we chanced upon a Korean rock band performing. We didn’t understand the songs that they sang but it seems like that they have a big fanbase. Aside from Romantic Punch, there are other street performers around the area. However, they have the most number of audience in the area. It is also interesting to note that the fans of the band are also passionate in singing their songs while they’re performing. Hope to see more street performers here in South Korea.

Preparing for the Coldplay Concert in Bangkok

It’s gonna be my first time to watch Coldplay live, my first time to watch a foreign act overseas, and my first time to go to Thailand. Me and Sharlyne did a little research on what not to bring to avoid additional inconveniences that we may experience on the day of the concert.

We found a website (originally written in Thai) that contains information that we need. Continue reading “Preparing for the Coldplay Concert in Bangkok”

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.

I want my Chilli Garlic Buttered Shrimp

Just yesterday, we were tuned into Jam 88.3 and a Brass Pas Pas Pas Pas song caught our attention. Yes, the title is Chilli Garlic Buttered Shrimp. It’s a feel-good song that would make you hum or sing along with it instantly. True enough, I kept on singing it while we’re at the grocery which made Sha so annoyed. 😀 Continue reading “I want my Chilli Garlic Buttered Shrimp”

20 Years of Jagged Little Pill

This album by Alanis Morisette is one of the first CDs that I bought. I remember, I was on a vacation with my Dad in the US when I bought it. I was around 14 years old at the time if I’m not mistaken. It was probably one of the most played CDs at home because we loved listening to Jagged Little Pill. It came to the point that we can no longer play it due to the scratches it has sustained. Continue reading “20 Years of Jagged Little Pill”

Urbandub’s Farewell Concert

And so, it happened last May 9. I was actually thinking of joining the Nike Women’s run (happened on the same night). Since it’s their farewell concert, I certainly did not want to miss the opportunity to watch them live.

Check out my recording of their performance of “Soul Searching” (from their album “Influence” that was released in 2003).

Haven’t heard of Urbandub’s music? Listen to their music on Spotify.

Thank you Urbandub

This is not an April Fool’s Joke guys. This news has been confirmed. Yes, Urbandub is saying goodbye after 15 years. They have announced it on their Facebook page.

15 years of Urbandub. We in the band, past and present members, still can’t believe we lasted this long. What started… Continue reading “Thank you Urbandub”

Watching The Eraserheads live in Singapore

It was my first time to watch a concert overseas. And it’s not a foreign act. It’s one of my favorite bands in the Philippines, The Eraserheads. You may think that it’s crazy to go to Singapore and watch our fellow countrymen perform even though that we can watch them here. After they disbanded, I saw them reunited in 2008. Then, I was able to get a chance to watch the Eraserheads in 2009. After 2009, I thought that was the last time that I will be able to see them live. Thus, when I heard about the Singapore concert, I got really excited. Continue reading “Watching The Eraserheads live in Singapore”
