It's been exactly 2 months now since I last posted in this now-updated blog. So for my "comeback" post (LOL), let's talk about the band Passion Pit.

I don't know about you if you haven't even heard of the song "Carried Away" or "Take A Walk" in your entire life. But for the past weeks, it's been part of my playlist in preparation for the band's first ever concert here in the Philippines, that was supposed to happen on August 13, 2015, at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.

7107 International Music Festival Day 2


So this by far is one of the best events I have ever been into! Okay, so maybe it is the best since we got this for free. Yay! So yeah, since Day 1 failed, we made sure that Day 2 will be fun no matter what! That's why we really relaxed at the hotel, charged our devices and even ourselves for what will seem to be a restless day, since we know that Day 2 has the biggest artists to perform. I didn't go crying and all with Day 1, since for me it wasn't that much of a deal because it was just free anyway... (Assuring myself, ha!)


Day 2 (Feb 23)
  • Foreign Acts: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Empire of the Sun, Kendrick Lamar, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Luciana.
  • Local Acts: Up Dharma Down, Sponge Cola, Pulso, Jensen & the Flips, Abra & Loonie, Encounters with a Yeti, Rocksteddy, Itchyworms, She’s Only Sixteen, Cheats, Scarlet Heroes, Yolanda Moon, Sky Marines, The Ringmaster, Populardays, Not Another Boy Band, Keith Bryan Haw, Marc Marasigan, Aryan & Travis Monsod, Ron Poe, Carlo Atendido, Jessica Milner.

7107 International Music Festival Day 1


First of all, I would like to thank Ms. Isabelle Daza for picking me as the winner of her contest!!! I wasn’t expecting to win actually (though deep inside I was really really really really hoping that I will!), since I know that aside from the fact that she has lots of followers on Instagram, who would let this opportunity to get free tix to a 2-day music festival headlined by Red Hot Chili Peppers pass right? But I tried anyway, sent a couple of entries and hoped for the best and thankfully I won!!!

MTV Exit Kick Off Concert

May 07, 2009



May 6, 2009 – MTV Philippines together with other organizations worldwide invite you to join MTV EXIT, a campaign that will stage live tours to spread the urgency of fighting trafficking and exploitation out there. Supported by our home grown artists, MTV EXIT will have 4 concerts at 4 major cities across the Philippines this 2009, kicking off on May 22 at the Mall of Asia Concert Grounds. With Bamboo, Callalily, Duster, Itchyworms, Kamikazee, Kjwan, Parokya ni Edgar, Pochoy Labog, Pupil, Rico Blanco, and Sponge Cola, this concert welcomes everyone and anyone who wants to make a difference.

A march of 5,000 advocates will happen from Roxas Boulevard to the concert ground at the Mall of Asia. These volunteers are from the different participating NGOs. The march will start at 2pm right before the 5pm program to be hosted by MTV VJ Kat Alano and Epi Quizon.



MTV EXIT is a campaign about freedom -- about our rights as human beings to choose where we live, where we work, who our friends are, and who we love. Most of us take these freedoms for granted, but hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world have had these basic human rights taken away. They are victims of trafficking – modern-day slaves -- and criminals have forced, defrauded, or coerced them into various forms of labor, or prostitution.

The UN's International Labor Organization estimates that worldwide about 2.5 million people are victims of trafficking (ILO) over half of these people are in Asia and the Pacific (ILO).

Criminals earn an estimated US$10 billion every year through buying and selling human beings (UN).
