Milk N Honey Bar Tour with The Discoball, Gaijin and Taken by Cars at Saguijo Cafe

I really had no plans of going out last night because I feel I have gone out enough times already this week but when I saw the line-up for the gig, I just really had to go. I’m a fan of The Discoball, who happen to also be my friends, and where they play, I just really have to go too. If I’m in the metro at least.

When I saw that Taken by Cars and Techy Romantics were also in the line-up, I asked a few of my friends that I knew were also “fans” if they wanted to come along.

I’ve only been back in Manila three weeks and I haven’t quite gotten around to seeing all of my friends, and it was such a joy to have an unintended mini-reunion at Saguijo. (P.S. The last time I was at Saguijo for some band-lovin I think was back in 2008 though I was there for some bazaar some time much more recent).

Bee Eyes was playing when we arrived. Two of our friends were already seated at a table outside. We busied ourselves with catching up over beers and a pinacolada while waiting for The Discoball to play.

I arrived at The Collective at nine thirty in the evening, and the streets were crowded with cars as people spilled from the venue into the streets. The place was absolutely jampacked! It was not hard for me to find Dax Carnay though, as he was onstage right that moment, hosting while Mei Bastes took a little break.

I arrived two bands before The Discoball played and that gave us the chance to hang out first, get some drinks, do a bit of small talk, and observe the different kinds of people in the crowd. The crowd was awesome! You could see the musicians, artists, yuppies, “little black men”, rastas, Filipinos, foreigners clustered together here and there.

I was so tempted to walk around and take photos of this very very interesting mix of people but I was running out of batteries.

Check out the people in the background! What a great crowd.

Soon enough, I heard The Discoball doing sound check in the background and I rushed off towards the stage to take photos. They had a guest percussionist, Rio Domingo.
