Nostalgic, rockin night with Incubus in Manila 2015

Four years after their third concert in the country, rock band Incubus returned in Manila for their Trust Fall tour as they performed their greatest hits and from their upcoming album, "Trust Fall (Side A)" which will released on May 21. The jampacked concert was held last night, March 13 at SM Mall of Asia Arena.

When Ian and I learned that they will be having their fourth gig here in the Philippines, we're ecstatic to watch them. Three failed attempts to see them in 2004, 2008 and 2011, last night was the best concert ever in my entire life.

I became an avid fan since their S.C.I.E.N.C.E. album, and added their songs on our Spotify playlist. I knew a lot of you drooled over since we posted on our Instagram account upon the announcement of their tour and updates of what happened last night.

Just before they took off the stage, talented violinist and composer Lindsey Stirling serenaded the crowd songs from her "Shatter Me" album.

When they entered the stage, rowdy crowd shouting for Brandon's name...I was stoked when I saw him and sang of my favey songs. Too bad for Ian, he missed the concert.

From "Wish You Were Here" to "I Miss You", I was teary eyed while seized the moment because their songs became part of my life. Amazed over on how the lead vocalist Brandon Boyd sizzled the crowd as he performed along with other members of the band, drummer Jose Pasillas; lead guitarist, Mike Einzinger; keyboardist Chris Kilmore; and bassist Ben Kenney.

What makes my night complete, despite of the fact it's Friday the 13th? When Einzinger threw some guitar picks over the crowd in the moshpit, I was lucky to get one of it. I immediately posted it on our IG...good thing someone helped me out to look the said pick infront of me using his phone's flashlight.

It's a helluva night! Fab setlist + great crowd = one nostalgic night!

One enchanted evening with Christina Perri in Manila

Several months ago, I had a quick chat with a friend of mine and talked about the song, "A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri. And if you're a Twilight fan, I know you sang it all over whenever it played on the radio. It became the theme song of every weddings that my friend attended last year. I've been listening to Perri's song since her chart-topping hit, "Jar of Hearts."

Last March 5, I had a chance to see her perform on stage at Smart Araneta Coliseum. I was awe-struck when she sang Arms, Butterfly, Human, and other songs from her two albums, Lovestrong and Head or Heart.

In the middle of the concert, I got teary eyed when she sang Human. A week before her Manila tour, I repeatedly played on my Spotify playlist. Inspired listening to her songs, I admired her as a person and how she wrote every songs she made for her album.

 One of the highlights of the said concert when Perri sang her own rendition of Ed Sheeran's hit, "Thinking Out Loud." She sang it perfectly, and almost dropped my jaw when I heard the first few lines of the song.

Blast from the past with Crosby, Stills and Nash on March 16

Legendary rock group Crosby, Stills & Nash (CSN) perform their greatest hits as they visit Manila for an evening of soft-rock songs and beautiful harmonies during a concert on March 16, 8 pm, at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City.

The historic one-night musical event proudly presented by Ovation Productions, dubbed as "An Evening With Crosby, Stills & Nash,” is part of the legendary American trio’s 2015 Asian tour that also includes several key cities in Japan as well as Singapore.

It is expected to draw a huge turnout of rock fans, mostly Baby Boomers lured by the sound of the legendary act considered as rock’s first super group and widely credited for some of the most enduring songs and wonderful harmonies of the 1970s.

Concert-goers shall experience an exciting blast from the past as the powerhouse folk rock group presents its  fabulous collection of close, high harmonies and soft rock songs,  such as “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” “Marrakesh Express,” “Woodstock,” “Our House,” “Teach Your Children,” “Long Time Gone” and “Carry On.”

Other classic hits in its song list include “Just A Song Before I Go,” “Wooden Ships,” “Almost Cut My Hair” and “Love The One You’re With.”

Composed of David Crosby (vocals, guitar), Stephen Stills (vocals, guitar, keyboards) and Graham Nash (vocals, guitar), Crosby, Stills & Nash brought harmony to the forefront of popular music with its unique three-part vocal blend that turned out hit songs that sold millions of albums and were imitated throughout the 1970s.

Moreover, with its emphasis on singing and songwriting above all else, it contributed to the evolution of the singer-songwriter movement during that era.

Born out of famous groups that placed a premium on harmony, Crosby, Stills & Nash boasted impressive individual credentials before its three members came together in 1969: Crosby sang and played rhythm guitar with The Byrds, Stills was a mainstay of Buffalo Springfield, while Nash provided the high harmonies that helped make pop sensation of The Hollies.

Stills and Crosby began writing songs together in 1968 after Buffalo Springfield broke up (The Byrds already split up a year earlier) until they were joined soon thereafter by Nash who had just quit The Hollies.  The trio performed together for the first time at the Los Angeles home of Cass Elliot of the Mamas and Papas.

The three made an instant impact on the music industry in 1968 by  helping steer rock to a more contemplative, song-oriented place with its classic debut album simply titled, “Crosby, Stills & Nash” early in the summer of 1969, a few months before the Woodstock Festival, where it played its first-ever concert as a trio.

The album quickly attained the stature of a mega-hit as it yielded such classics as “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” “Wooden Ships” and “Long Time Gone.”  It was followed a year later by “Déjà vu,” a more eclectic and electric endeavor brought about by the addition of the rhythm section of Dallas Taylor and Greg Reeves.

In 1977, CSN went on to release an album  that yielded a Top Ten hit with Nash’s “Just A Song Before I Go,” while “Daylight Again” (1982) produced another Nash-penned hit, “Wasted On The Way.”

While each member has pursued a solo career – with Crosby and Nash teaming up as a duo for most of the ‘70s – Crosby, Stills & Nash has increasingly become an artistic home base  for the trio.

In 1977, Crosby, Stills & Nash released the quadruple platinum, “CSN’” which included “Just A Song Before I Go” (No. 7, 1977), followed the following summer by a tour as an acoustic trio.

In 1982, it released “Daylight Again,” for which Stills wrote most of the songs, and toured arenas once more.  “Daylight Again” became a Top Ten LP and boasted two Top 20 singles: “Wasted On The Way” (No. 9) and “Southern Cross” (No. 18).  In 1989, Crosby, Stills and Nash reconvened as a trio for 1990’s “Live It Up” (No. 58).

David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice – first with CSN and later with The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and The Hollies, respectively.

They have also been inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in recognition of their achievements as a group with CSN and as individual members doing solo acts.
