SUPPORT BICOLANO ARTISTS – that’s the thrust of Wharf Galley, so every time we have a Manila-based band coming over to Naga, we prioritize bringing the Bicolanos back home. Your Imaginary Friends, composed of  Ahmad Tanji (vocals and guitars) of Legazpi’s famed Pepsi Paloma Experiment, his brother Khalid (guitars), Eric Po(drums) from Naga City and Emerald Aquino (bass), are as close to being all Bicolano as they can get.

After months of planning, that included a meet-and-greet at the Shoplifters United Presents – Silence is the Villain event (click on the link for the photos) at B-Side last August and then another meeting at Today x Future at Cubao X last September, Your Imaginary Friends (YIF) finally made it to Naga City!

Eric Po, the band’s drummer and graphic artist extraordinaire, made a lot of publicity materials for this event in the course of three months. This helped a lot in promoting the event and no doubt, helped in making the event a very successful one.

Coffeebreak Island was scheduled to play at Wharf Galley on April 17th. When we initially planned their gig, we had no plans of moving Wharf Galley; but it turned out, the Coffeebreak Island gig in Naga was the first Wharf Galley event to be held in its new venue: Avenue Square.

I was home earlier this year with Lia while H was busy with his first quarter meeting with the “United Nations” team. I always make it a point to eat at Bigg’s Diner every time I am home. There is one walking distance from my parents’ home in Pili. It is the one right in front of the Pili Elementary School, in the Pili town proper, next to a now-closed gas station (where I used to buy a pint of ice cream everyday the entire summer before I went away to college), along the National Highway.
