Indie Music Night


Tomorrow, I'll be going with my cousins to Sessions' Indie Music Night and the bands that will be playing there are worth the watch. For 200 pesos, you'll get to listen to awesome bands and even have a bottle of beer. If you're around the Sandigan Bayan/Don Antonio area, drop on by. I'll be there by 9pm, probably. I'm looking forward to hearing Miles Experience, Jensen and the Flips, Tom's Story, and the other bands as well.

If you've been reading my blog and my older posts, you'll know that I've already seen Miles Experience live during Fete de la Musique in Green Sun, Makati (link to post here). I really liked their sound and the passion they bring to their performances. I've heard Jensen and the Flips via YouTube as well so I'm looking forward to hearing them play live. As for the other bands, I'm looking forward to getting to know them, their sound, and hearing them play live.

After going to Fete de la Musique, I think I've renewed my passion for independent Filipino music. I remember way back 2007 or 2008, I heard Silent Sanctuary even before they made it big and became mainstays in the OPM hit charts. It feels good to know good musicians even before they make it to the mainstream media. You have that sense of satisfaction when you see your band make it big.

I hope you guys will be there tomorrow. If you are, leave a comment! xx

FGMM: Smilky

How can I even begin explaining to you guys how much this song gets me going? If you haven't clicked the play button yet, I'm sure you don't know why I'm being like this but if you did play the song already... You know, don't you? I suggest you hit that play button and enjoy the song.

I'm sharing to you guys another song that's perfect for slow dancing and maybe even a bit of loving. It can easily go from being a loving song to a foreplay in the bedroom in a snap of a finger. The guitar solo is something to look forward to, I promise you. The lyrics of the song is about the need to touch another person under the hazy lights that could only be seen through hooded eyes. The yearning you feel when someone you love is near, the burn you have for your lover, the kind of need that can only be quenched by another person. That's what this song is all about.

I regret not being able to listen to SUD live but I'll make it a promise to not make the same mistake again when the time arises. The next time I'll have the opportunity to watch the band perform live, I'll be there.

[Fete de la Musique] The Sun Manager

As you guys know, I'm doing a Fete de la Musique series post. The first one I wrote can be seen here. I'm not sure how often I'll be posting but I'll make sure to post at least once a week for this series. I really enjoyed the event and it sparked my curiosity towards the local music scene once again.

The Sun Manager was a lovely band to hear during Fete Indie 2016. I had no idea who they were or what their sound was like so hearing them live for the first time was a treat. I loved the laid back vibe their songs have and the fact that they seem to really enjoy performing for their audience. I think one of the things I love about independent musicians is their passion for their craft. Most of the bands I watched in the Fete Indie and Fete Rock stages had so much love and passion for music that it carries you to another level of enjoyment.

FGMM: Love Supreme

WARNING: NSFW due to mild nudity, theme, and violence portrayed in the video.

I've made a post about this band yesterday and I saw it fitting to have my Feel Good Monday Music post about them. I listened to this song, before I heard it live at Fete de la Musique's Indie stage, when I was researching the band line up for the event. I wanted to know the sound of each band so I'd know what time I should go there and I'd have some expectation to their performances.

When I searched for MilesExperience, this was the first video that showed up on the list. I must say, when I heard this song I became a fan of them. Want to know the icing to the cake? The live performance is even better. Once you hear Justin, the guitarist's, intro you'd be grooving to the song from start to finish. Maybe, even asking for more.

This is the type of song you can listen to while writing a post on your blog and you'll feel the flow of the words coming out of you in spades. Like what I'm feeling, right now. You can listen to this song on a rainy night with your eyes closed and just feeling the universe. This is the type of song that seeps into your bones and soothes your soul. So, enjoy guys. xx

[Fete de la Musique] Miles Experience

Last night I went to Green Sun Hotel, Makati to watch and listen to the bands performing in Fete Indie and Fete Rock which are sub stages of the Fete de la Musique event. I had a lot of plans to go stage hopping around the metro but later on decided to stay in Green Sun. I guess their hastag, #WalangAlisanSaGreenSun was right.

Dangerous Woman

This would've been in my Feel Good Music Monday (FGMM) post but I wanted to share to you guys Ariana Grande's song. I know it's already out and a lot of people know the song since it is Ariana Grande but I had to share the song. I never thought I'd say this but I'm loving Ariana's new album. I love the sensual beat and the way Ariana's voice seduces you to loving her. Hahaha! I know, I sounded weird but it's true!

This song is such a baby making song. When I first heard it, I instantly thought, wow... this is kinda turning me on. Hahahaha! Shoot. Scratch what I just said. I'll stop blabbering and just let you enjoy the song. xx

Hold The Door

Excuse me for the title guys. If you get it, I'm sorry. Too soon? If you don't get it, oh how lucky you are that you don't get the reference. I'm sorry if I made you remember that gentle giant again. I thought I could title my post as such 'cos I have a big door behind me. Hahaha! I know. I'm lame like that. Excuse me.

[Foodie Log] Kogi Bulgogi

My mom and I went to this restaurant a few months back when I accompanied her to do some errands. We wanted to try it out since it had a good vibe. My mom ordered bibimbap while I had kimbap. If you guys don't know what those are, I can get into further detail on it in a bit.
