There were only three bands left on the line up: The Chongkeys, Brownman Revival, and Franco. I was on my second glass of mai tai by this time. Since I was already standing near the stage, I took the first photos while I was there and ended back on the mezzanine. And this blog is Part 2 of 3.

By the time I was done with the Zion video, my head was already spinning. I was really drunk on this night – after two glasses of mai tai. I’d usually have four glasses of mai tai at 70’s Bistro so I was surprised that I was tipsy with only two. And then I realized, the glasses at Metro Bar are tall! Two glasses of mai tai at Metro Bar were the equivalent of four at 70’s Bistro!
Needless to say, I had so much fun shooting on this night. The bouncers were also nice to me. Haha! They allowed me to be as near the stage as possible. I took a video of the band’s performance of Gabi ng Lagim but I’m having some issues with the sound quality so I didn’t post it. I’m reeeallly near the point of getting a Zoom H1 just for this better sound quality that I am now obsessing with.
I was determined to stick through Brownman Revival’s set though, even if only for a few songs, coz I have not seen them since June last year when they played at Wharf Galley in Avenue Square in Naga City.
The entire Roots Rock Reggae set is HERE btw.
