I really had no plans of going out last night because I feel I have gone out enough times already this week but when I saw the line-up for the gig, I just really had to go. I’m a fan of The Discoball, who happen to also be my friends, and where they play, I just really have to go too. If I’m in the metro at least.
I’ve only been back in Manila three weeks and I haven’t quite gotten around to seeing all of my friends, and it was such a joy to have an unintended mini-reunion at Saguijo. (P.S. The last time I was at Saguijo for some band-lovin I think was back in 2008 though I was there for some bazaar some time much more recent).
Bee Eyes was playing when we arrived. Two of our friends were already seated at a table outside. We busied ourselves with catching up over beers and a pinacolada while waiting for The Discoball to play.
Sidney Luzentales on guitars
Dan Ramon Geromo on bass
Bheng Densing on vocals and guitars
Jeff Azarcon on drums
It was at this point when more familiar faces started coming, like Dong Abay, for example.
And another friend from Travel Factor who is now Boracay-based, Cha, but found herself at Saguijo that night with friends.
(Sorry about the orientation at the beginning. I thought I was still taking a photo.)
Jesse Grinter on vocals and guitar
Raimund Marasigan on vocals and bass
Shinji Tanaka on drums
And here’s another video of a song I have no idea what the title is. If any of you guys have an idea what the song title is, do let us know.
Bryce Zialcita on guitars
Sarah Marco on vocals
Siopao Chua on guitars, synths and vocals
Isa Garcia on bass, synths, and vocals
Bryan Kong on drums
By this time, the inside of Saguijo was packed with people and taking fairly decent photographs, much more a video, was just not possible.
So we stayed outside and hung out with friends. 😉
We loved the wall.
Techy Romantics, who was front-act at the Foster the People concert that same night, and was supposed to also play at Saguijo, did not make it. So, Taken by Cars did an extended set.
It was a really great night! Awesome music and hanging out with good friends! I’ve gotten so used to just hanging out with a friend or two when going to gigs, or hanging out with the bands, that being with so many friends at Saguijo was something new to me. Thanks to my friends for just having a good time through and through!
