Matilda Returns to 70’s Bistro – Nov. 14, 2012

Music, Photography By November 27, 2012 Tags: , , , , , , , , 1 Comment

Matilda seldom does gigs these days that when they do have one, I make it a point to go. I once asked Meh if Matilda has disbanded and she responded with: “No, everyone just thinks so and we don’t get get invites to play but we are very much alive!” or something to that effect. So I get excited every time they have a gig.

Meryl Antonio-Reyes and I go as far along as I do with Dan Ramon Geromo of The Discoball, back to our college days when we were all sophomores at U.P. Diliman and we bonded through The U.P. Repertory Company. I was really happy to come and watch them play again.

Jeck Pilpil & Peacepipe + Coffeebreak Island at 70s Bistro – Oct 3, 2012

Music By October 4, 2012 Tags: , , , , , , 1 Comment

Last week, after my shoot at the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater for Dulaang U.P.’s The Seagull, I found myself at 70s Bistro where Banda ni Kleggy, Paraluman, Callalily and supposedly 6Cyclemind, were playing. I really wanted to be at Route 196 because it was on my way back to our house, but that night, The Dawn was playing and all I really needed was to sit quietly in some table in some corner and just be by myself, and squeezing in among a crowd of The Dawn fans wasn’t going to let that happen.

I am an absolute Chekhov fan, and I was so moved, (notwithstanding comments and a probable review, or maybe just a slew of my own thoughts on the play, the word “review” being too constricting), that I felt I needed some time to process that theater experience.

Although I found the Filipino version not as compelling as the English version, something that I attributed to the failure of the acting ensemble, and therefore, I was not as depressed as the week before, I still felt that I needed some music as a fitting end to the evening. It was a choice between UpDharmaDown at Route 196 and reggae night with Jeck Pilpil & Peacepipe with Coffeebreak Island at 70s Bistro.

I’m friends with CBI so that was one point, and I needed a reggae band for a friend’s friend’s wedding, two points, so off I went.

I arrived at 70s Bistro in the middle of heavy rains, and there was just enough people in the bistro for me to be comfortable enough to take pictures.

Jeck Pilpil & Peacepipe came up first because Jun hadn’t arrived yet.

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…

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.
