Surf and Music Festival 2012 Day 3 – San Juan, La Union

Having surfed all day til sunset, I was absolutely exhausted! Spy was already playing by the time I got to our room in Sebay, and I desperately needed a nap. I set the alarm to 9pm thinking I wouldn’t miss Razorback and Wolfgang because they wouldn’t play that early BUT they did! I woke up and I could hear Wolfgang playing!

The lineup for this night was DJ Joey Santos and DJ Niki Rojas, Franco, Razorback, Urbandub, Wolfgang, Pupil, Spy and Kalayo (formerly Pinikpikan). I was only getting dressed while Wolfgang was playing and we were having dinner of chicken and pork barbecues and hotdogs outside the concert venue when Kalayo was onstage.

Apparently, Razorback and Wolfgang had to play early because they had to be somewhere else.

I got in just in time for Franco. I’ve missed Franco when he played at Avenue Square in Naga City for last year’s Penafrancia Festival and missed him too at the Roots Rock Reggae gig at Metro Bar last October 17th so I wasn’t going to miss him at this year’s Surf and Music Festival!

FRANCO

Franco, now a solo artist, used to be a band made up of Franco Reyes (Inyo) on vocals and guitars, Gabby Alipe (Urbandub) and Paolo 8 Toleran (Queso) on guitars, Buwi Meneses (Parokya ni Edgar) on bass and JanJan Mendoza (Urbandub) on drums. BUT earlier this year, the band members decided to go separate ways and Franco now goes as a solo artist playing with sessionists during live performances. Read all about the story HERE.

I and my friends went to sleep at four in the morning, promising each other to meet up at eleven thirty-two for brunch at Midway Grill in San Fernando, but I woke up at eleven thirty two and decided not to go. I got up, put on my gigantic bee-eyes sunglasses, had coffee, headed over to the Valdezes’ tent and went to surf instead. That’s where I was when they got back, with my lunch of baby back ribs from Midway Grill.

I’m just writing this down because actually, I’ve forgotten what I did all day on this day, and I was wondering why I have no pictures until the concert. 😛

The line-up for this night was: Kaya Green Band, Indio I, Milagros Dancehall Collective.. and so on and so forth, at least those are the bands that I missed.

Actually, I arrived right in the middle of Milagros Dancehall Collective’s set but I was hungry and was collecting myself, thus, no pictures. I was just standing there, staring, hungry and wide-eyed. 😛

So I started taking photos when Taken by Cars went onstage.
