Expectations weren’t high, but as usual, I really just wanted to take pictures. My puny digital point-and-shoot is sadly ashamed showing its lens among the various DSLRs being lugged around, though some suckers appeared to have lesser fixed-lens types. The admittingly event-unfit Radioactive Sago Project was the only subject I took passable pictures of.
The concert was fine, with just minute specks of showbandness. Was annoyed by some negligible things (loud and irritating female host, the 250 peso ticket price, the impression that probably half of those watching might have bought the newest Kenny G CD, etc.). Didn’t stay long.
Afterwards, saw Sheila and The Insects at Mayric’s, sporting a sound so reminiscent of The Killers. However, if you were an incompetent band trying the dance-rock trend, it will show if you were horrendous, and this Cebu-based, new-wave influenced band showed nothing but excellence.

Didn’t catch the other bands for the night, and didn’t care much, really.
