It all started when Tirong and I saw Effinboiche perform at a cosplay event. I told him: Dude, they have to be from Laguna.
They are, and they easily impressed me with a very promising set of songs, from what looks like a pretty young roster of musicians. A web search was in order, and after some time scouring Youtube for their videos, and finding Alex, their vocalist/guitarist over at Multiply, I asked if they were playing anywhere near Libis, QC soon: they were slated to play at Club Dredd, last Friday.
After a quick talk with the boss about a half-day leave, an aborted mini-reunion with ex-officemates, I did find myself waiting until one in the morning to watch Effinboiche again.
And the story, somehow, continues over at this Multiply blog post.

Effinboiche is online at MySpace, and you can sample the songs over here.
