Eat Your Beets!

Posted in Events with tags , , on 17 December, 2011 by Ed



This is probably my last gig to attend to this year. Well, that is apart from dropping by at Terno Inferno at saGuijo, and The Ronnies Christmas party at 77 Cafe the same night.

I have always enjoyed the music of Taken by Cars and Techy Romantics, so it’s nice that they’re both playing at the same bill and also launching their own new music videos. It’s been awhile since I last saw them play. And according to the invite there will be a total of 24 musical acts and 2 stages.

So come on down to B-Side and enjoy the show! 🙂

Meiday! Meiday!

Posted in Events with tags , on 5 February, 2011 by Ed

If you haven’t heard of Meiday! Meiday!, it’s either you’re old, not in Facebook, or simply not interested in the local (indie) scene.

Meiday, as it is called by its regular partyphiles, is a sort of Woodstock Pinoy version, which features the local scene’s most in-demand bands, as well as upcoming bands that prove original Pinoy music’s demise is far from being witnessed by this generation. It’s the brainchild of Mei Bastes, who takes care of the nitty-gritty: from booking bands, to renting equipment, producing shirts, contacting sponsors and hosting the big night.

Now on it’s third year of celebrating free music and parties. Mei have no idea how long she can keep going with these parties. But one thing for sure, it keeps getting better.

So if you haven’t been, it’s not too late to do so.

Tip: You might want to have a read at The ‘Supreme’ Survival Guide for Meiday virgins: Meiday for newbies so you know what to do.

More about Meiday! here.

SEE YOU THERE! 🙂

Today is Pam Pastor’s Paper Cuts book launch!

Posted in Events with tags , , on 28 January, 2011 by Ed

If you are not doing anything today, why don’t you swing by National Bookstore in Glorietta 5 (5pm), for Pam Pastor’s book launch. If you read Inquirer then you know who’s Pam Pastor, and if you still have no idea who she is, well this is your chance to know about her and her book, “Paper Cuts”.

Now I still don’t have a copy of her book, so I can’t really say specifically what is it about, but based on what I’ve read in her blog, it must be about her interesting experiences in life as a woman, as a writer, as a friend and whatever in-between.

Oh, and the clue about the content is actually, written on the book cover above.

So i’ll see you there and let’s find out what the author have to say about her book!
