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.
