Doppler Report

Our very own Christie hosted the event alongside NU 107's Trish. Orange and Lemons opened the show, followed by Myra Ruaro (as Scarlet) and the Brownbeat All-Stars, Mayonnaise, and Imago, who ended their set with the always-excellent Anino (Aia de Leon looked hot). It's a great, great song, but it's also the only Imago song that I like, which is why I'm still thinking if I'm going to buy their album. I was too lazy to get up and take pictures, until it was time to go to...

Divisoria, Divisoria, Divisoria, Divisoria!

rocks, man... they opened their set with Ledgeboy, following it up with their usual gig fare (Elastik, Patlang) until they wrapped up with DV. I never realized how much energy the band draws out of Raimund's manic drumming until Saturday; it's like he never stopped pounding during the whole set, and the rest of the band was trying to catch up to him. Right after they wrapped up DV, he threw his drumsticks into the crowd, sayang, it landed only about four feet away from me into some high school kids' eager hands.

Next up was Sugarfree, easily the most popular band of the night. They're emo and a little baduy, but aren't we all suckers for Sugarfree? Plus, Ebe Dancel has the crowd in the palm of his hands throughout their performance, which included their most recent singles Sinta, Prom, Burnout, and Hari ng Sablay, a song that I can't board a taxi without hearing on 90.7 Love Radio (kailangan pa ba'ng i-memorize 'yan?). Good times!

Sugarfree's definitely a tough act to follow, but the next band was more than up to the occasion. Giniling Festival is, to borrow a phrase from The Hives, my new favourite band. They remind me most of The Darkness, with their sense of humor coupled with earnest music-playing, as well as their frontman's eager desire to please. They even have a glam-rock song, Hari ng Metal (Ang hari ng metal, walang ligo-ligo, walang suklay-suklay). I'm looking forward to the next time I catch them. Siling giniling, siling giniling!

Things took a serious turn when Twisted Halo took the stage. You know, Twisted Halo would be one of those annoying, self-important bands if they didn't rock so hard (and if Vin Dancel and the rest of the band weren't such nice people). Anyway, I just posted the picture because Vin was wearing a cool t-shirt.

After this, I wasn't really interested in the bands that played (Boldstar, Gender Bender, Delta Joy, plus a couple of bands who won the previous nights Battle of the Bands during the fair), so I didn't bother taking pictures. But I got up again for the last two bands.

Brownman Revival has been around for a long time, but this is actually the first time I saw them. They opened the set with a very cool reggae cover of Ikaw Ang Aking Mahal (probably my favorite VST and Co. song). They were pretty good, plus you could take your parents to see their show and your parents would probably like them as much.

Listening to Radioactive Sago Project over the radio is one thing, listening to them live is another thing. Since we were in Pisay and all, we were wondering if they'd be performing Astro. And then they opened the show with a number called Gin Pomelo, so you knew Astro was coming. They ended the show with a vicious, profanity-laden, and infinitely enjoyable Gusto Ko ng Baboy, sending everyone home happy.

It was a great, great gig, one of the most enjoyable concerts I've been to, despite the fact that no alcohol was served :p All the credit goes to Dacs and her merry band of Samapi members. Great, great work! I'm soo looking forward to next year :)
