Cynthia Alexander’s Send off Gig at 70s Bistro June 22, 2012 – Part 2

70s Bistro, Music By June 26, 2012 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

Coming back from Freedom Bar at one in the morning, I find Bistro with all its lights on, all the windows and doors wide open to alleviate the nearly-suffocating heat from having so many people inside. When I left, I had the girl standing behind me take my favorite spot so she could also take photos; and when I came back, I found an empty chair by the door going to the rest rooms. I took that spot and was able to document the band performing Moon River. Check out the crowd and how many fans (not the people) are there! The crowd inside have ballooned from the hundred or so that was there at nine o’clock to about, I dunno, can you guess?

The ‘Send Off Series’ at 70’s Bistro: Cynthia Alexander performs with longtime stage compatriots Mlou Matute and Cj Wasu, and guest band mates Jonathan Zuniga Urbano, Louie Talan, Romel SanchezKakoy Legaspi and Zach Lucero.

I changed my lens from 50mm to 18-135mm so I can have a wider, though darker, view; and moved up to a higher chair right by the wall. And I do so just in time to document them perform my second favorite Cynthia Alexander song – Insomnia.

Cynthia Alexander’s Send off Gig at 70s Bistro, June 22, 2012 – Part I

70s Bistro, Music By June 25, 2012 Tags: , , , , , , , 1 Comment

June 22 was one epic night. I knew a lot of people and friends who wanted to go to the send-off gig at Bistro on that night but tickets were sold out. I only managed to snag one because a group of my friends had a number of tickets reserved and I got one out of that. Many of my friends were not so lucky and had to go home…

Cynthia Alexander Send Off Gig at 70s Bistro

I arrived at 70s Bistro at nine in the evening, and there was a crowd of people swarmed around the ticket booth by the entrance. The people manning the ticket booth were holding a list of reservations and a wait list. When I got in, the place was already packed with about a hundred people. I inched my way into my favorite spot at Bistro, right behind the balustrade in between the tech booth and the stage, which I liked because it afforded the best view for taking photos and videos, a place to sit my things on, like a bottle of beer or my bag, and easy access to going to the bar or the door if I needed to get out.

Nityalila promptly opened the night at 9:45PM, with guest band mates Miko Aguilar on bass, Reli de Vera on drums, and featuring Taiwanese pipa player and collaborator Chung Yufeng.

Session Road at 14

70s Bistro, Music By May 20, 2012 Tags: , , , 1 Comment

I made it! I made it out! The first gig I’ve been to since I got back to Manila and of course, I brought my camera with me, but managed to take zilch photos. It was so much more fun to just enjoy the music and the company of friends.

It was so nice to see and be with my friends Summer and Jake, and Katte and Via, and hang out with Ayla. Thanks Geronimo Photographico for the one and only proof that I was actually there. I made it with what’s supposed to be my Goth Mom look, but what Ayla calls “Catwoman” look (and don’t ask me why). I am fine with cat woman, because it makes me think of Puss in Boots, which happens to be a character I identify with. Boom!

It was also nice to do little chitty chats with the band, and talk about their last gig. Oh, I have yet to post the photos from that event. In the next blog post, then.

I had come from somewhere else that day and got home late. We arrived at 70’s Bistro quite late and missed one or two band performances. I spent some time hanging out with friends and did not take a lot of photos. Here are the shots I managed to take.

The Travel Factor New Year’s Party 2011

70s Bistro, Travel Factor By January 9, 2011 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

The Travel Factor 2011 Kick Off Party held at 70’s Bistro last night was a terrific success. It was a night spent with good friends and good music from Pumping Pluto, Johnoy Danao, Peryodiko and Pedicab.

TF friends arrived in “rock star” outfits, or mellowed down versions of it. For the sake of my friend Ver who does not have a Facebook account, here are some of the photos taken by Deneb Villanueva.
