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. 🙂

Me and Sha were so glad that we were able to make it to one of the .MOV fest activities last Saturday. We are both Folk U first-timers. Even though the venue in Podium is quite bigger than that of the ones we usually go to (i.e. Saguijo, etc.), we felt that it was an intimate gig.¬† Continue reading “Folk U Night at .MOV fest”
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”
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!”
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”
