Saguijo, Makati City
The last gig I went to where I got out of the venue and found that I had wrinkled finger-skin was way back when Rage Against The Machine played here. I wouldn’t say yet that I’m a big fan of Franco, but apparently a lot of people are, since I heard Saguijo got calls all day confirming if the band was indeed playing that night. Security won’t let people in anymore unless you go way back behind everyone. I went with that, but eventually found myself shooting with my rinky-dink Spotmatic at an arms-length distance with the bands. Thanks to my borrowed German 29mm lens, but no thanks to the almost non-existent light, as a wall of people blocked it.
Back to digital at this gig, and was glad to see Ene again. She’d be singing with her former band, The Ronnies, who is now fronted by Waya, who I was glad remembered me from an awkward introduction at another gig, where I said: Rain? I took the photo you asked permission to be published in an Uno article. Again, as I’d always mention, you have to see The Ronnies, especially if you have 80’s music orientation. Highlight of the night would be their cover of the Flash Gordon theme. Photo above is of Ene and Waya singing their trademark cover of Sheena Easton’s Telephone.
Lastly, I got an invite from Coy (thanks man!) to an exclusive taping of an Urbandub concert, where I was told I could give invites to people to watch online on my blog, so dear reader, watch out for that. Thankful for the opportunity to use slower-speed film while shooting.
