- Found two interesting bands from the early hours: Death By Tampon, and Ang Bandang Shirley. The first was a tamer, spunkier, YYY-ish bunch, with teenage girls. I only probably got to watch 1 minute from the last band, and they were ending a dance-y rock song; can’t define how really, but I was sold.
- Joey Valenciano wasn’t able to play his sitar, dammit. The mic’s wont work for him.
- Being in the middle of a mob waiting for Hale is no different in intensity and brutatlity to the Rage Against the Machine concert I went to years ago. This time, it was topped by three dozen girls shrieking their guts out, all literally inches from me.
- Up Dharma Down‘s current single is good, and frantic with energy. The rest of their stuff sadly doesn’t deliver as much.
- The decision to not leave the Alternative stage was taken based on owning a good place to take pictures. I actually did, but a point-and-shoot digicam can only go so far with the setup. I effing stood there for probably 5 hours, sweat dripping in bucketloads, for it was a hot, humid night.
- Missed Jr. Kilat‘s set, since they were on the main stage (world music, reggae, etc.) 🙁
- Stars of the night: Lougee of Mojofly, and Katwo of Narda. They are lovely gifts from god-if-he-exists (kidding on the last part :twisted:).
- Left after Narda’s set. Shet, fan na nga ako. Plans to explore other stages, particularly the Jazz and Electronica ones, will be difficult to follow, since I could barely walk.
