Foster The People Live in Manila 2018 | Sacred Hearts Club Tour

Photo Dump: Foster The People - Sacred Hearts Club Tour Live in Manila 2018

Last January 26, I finally witnessed the live performance of one of my favorite bands ever. I missed the first one, so I won't definitely miss this. And thank God, I didn't!

LANY Live in Manila 2017 at Ayala Malls


March this year, LANY first went to Manila, Philippines to be a part of an annual music festival called Wanderland. I, unfortunately, wasn't able to attend because the girl's too busy to. 😞 Fortunately, for me and other LANY fans who weren't able to attend too, the LA-based band is back with a series of shows for free!

The 1975 Live in Manila 2014 at Ayala Malls (Throwback)


It's been a little over a year since In The Mix 2016, where my favorite band, The 1975 was a part of. To date, it's one of my biggest regrets in life, because that event has such a big lineup. But since it's bad to dwell on the past, here's me, reminiscing the days I got to meet and watch these British lads for the first time, live. Read on to see photos and watch their performance!

Manila X Festival 2017 - Music

It's been two months since this year's Manila X Festival, and here I am, just posting about the event. Manila X is a festival showcasing both music and fashion. In case you missed the event, you can read about my coverage here, originally posted at AsiaLive365's website. Continue reading to see more photos of musicians. I've got the style part covered too, but that'll be on another post. Stay tuned. 😉

The last few days of May was rainy and having to attend an outdoor event with a known chance of rain is something you would easily say no to. But when it’s Manila X, a festival that promises both music and style in one event, how could you resist?

With the weather in mind, Manila X, taking place on Saturday, May 27, specifically implied that it was a rain or shine event. The venue was an open space at the Globe Circuit Events Grounds. Attendees learned early on that they weren’t going to just get wet and it wasn’t just raining. They were soaked and it was pouring.



Red Ninja Year 8 Fest 2017: Typecast, Hilera, Jensen and the Flips, and more

Red Ninja Year 8 Fest

It was my first time to be a part of Red Ninja's event, and to my surprise, I enjoyed it! I love concerts and gigs even since I was in highschool. But since I live in Cavite and my parents were so strict, that just did not work out for me. At least until a few years ago, since I became independent.

Dua Lipa Live in Manila 2017 | Exclusive Media Showcase by Warner Music PH

Dua Lipa Live in Manila 2017 | Exclusive Media Showcase by Warner Music PH


Let's get straight to it since my review for this event has been up at AsiaLive365 for quite some time now, shall we?

Dua Lipa is a 21-year old British singer-songwriter and model of Albanian descent behind synth-pop hits like “Blow Your Mind (Mwah)” and “Be The One”. If her name rings any bell, one reason is probably you’ve heard her hit collaboration with Martin Garrix, “Scared To Be Lonely”. Or because she is named second to only Adele among female British music artists. Or, well, she’s just that good despite her emergent status.

Rising to fame with her YouTube covers of pop artists, Lipa signed with Warner Bros Records in 2015. By August of the same year she released first single “New Love”, followed by “Be The One” in October, which debuted atop the UK’s Singles Chart and, together with her Sean Paul-collaborated single “No Lies”, made her the only artist beside Ed Sheeran to hold both No. 1 and 2 spots on the Top 20 Chart. 2016’s “Blow Your Mind (Mwah)” became her first entry to the Billboard Hot 100, claiming the 72nd spot before reaching No. 23 on the Mainstream Top 40 chart.

Dua Lipa brought her impressive profile and chart-toppers to the Philippines for the first time on Saturday, May 13. The singer put on her pop prowess in a stripped down private media showcase and meet a few chosen LOVEs (her official fan club) ahead of her return this August 17 at In The Mix Manila, where she’ll join the ranks of DNCE, Zara Larsson and 5 Seconds of Summer.

So, I don't know if you know him. But if you're a fan of EDM, chances are, you have heard of at least one song with his voice. I'm talking about Matthew Koma, an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and DJ. He recently kicked off his 2017 residency at Chaos Manila (ICYMI: I posted the article I wrote for AsiaLive365 here) and exactly after a month, here are more photos I took from the event.

It seemed just like an ordinary Friday night as you plodded to Metro Manila’s premiere partygoer playground, The Palace Pool Club in Bonifacio Global City. As usual, there were lots of well-dressed people ready to get their groove on.

But on this particular night, Friday, March 3, it was different. Since it’s the celebration of /ESCAPE’s first year anniversary the venue was supplied with free cocktails, jello shots and cotton candy. Cotton candy

Live Review: Summer never ends at Yellowcard’s Final World Tour

Live Review: Summer never ends at Yellowcard’s Final World Tour

Emo nostalgia was in the air as Filipino fans flocked to Skydome at the SM North EDSA to see Yellowcard last Friday, February 10.

They were first introduced to local act Gracenote. Frontwoman Eunice Jorge’s voice was powerful and undeniably similar to the high hitting notes we know of Hayley Williams. The comparison became clear as they performed Paramore’s “That’s What You Get”. The audience often brushes aside the front act but this time that wasn’t the case. They were enjoying themselves and even charmed as the band covered Stevie B’s “When I Dream About You”.

Yellowcard took the stage to kick off their career-epitomizing setlist began on a mellow note with “Believe”. Sean Mackin had a chance to gloat his violin prowess to a very heedful audience before the latter was sent into a frenzy during “Lights and Sounds”. In our defense, it’s what tonight was supposed to be. We were gonna party like summer never ends.

A Definite GIF guide to Yellowcard The Final World Tour in Asia

Jacksonville-born, Los Angeles-based band Yellowcard was formed exactly two decades ago this year. Most 00’s kids who’ve gone through an emo phase (or ever watched MTV, really) would recognize at least one of their bright-eyed anthems or mellow, heartrending tracks.

Ever since their major label debut with Ocean Avenue in 2003, Yellowcard toured rigorously over the next few years. Although the band went through a hiatus between 2008 and 2010, it didn’t take long before fans could rejoice in their return, critically-acclaimed When You’re Through Thinking, Say Yes, succeeded by two more records and a we-didn’t-know-we-needed-it acoustic album back-to-back.

However, to fans’ shock and dismay, Yellowcard announced in June 2016 they’re breaking up after a final tour, which, thankfully, Asia gets to be part of. So without further ado, here’s a 10-GIF guide to Yellowcard’s The Final World Your.

Full details on The Vamps’ surprise Manila concert are in!

It was a few hours before the end of October when all of a sudden, The Vamps was all over my news feed. Again.

Truthfully, my initial reaction was maybe Filipino fans were still not over guitarist James McVey’s posting a throwback photo of him and the exquisite Liza Soberano, a Filipina-American model, and actress. But upon skimming through all those posts, I realized I was wrong. It turned out the British pop band had announced they were coming back to the Philippines for the third time.

Chris Brown Live in Manila 2015

What: Chris Brown Live in Manila
When: July 21, 2015
Where: Mall of Asia Arena, MOA Complex, Pasay City

For today's Throwback Thursday post, it's none other than Breezy live in Manila! It's been more than a month since Chris "Breezy" Brown visited the Philippines for the second time. He's been here years ago with Rihanna for their concert. This year was Breezy's first solo concert here in the country--and it's very controversial because he ditched the original schedule for his New Year's Eve concert that was produced by the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC)--causing him to get stuck in the country a few days after his concert.
