Ian's idea, Ayan's initiative.

Handling a concert and music blog is no joke! We juggled our time in watching concerts, despite of our busy schedule at work (Ian's working for SkyCable, Ayan is a homebased content writer.). When we received the recognition as one of the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blog 205, our reaction: stoked upon learning about it.

Kamikazee will stage their final show at Araneta Coliseum on December 10

Filipino rock legends Kamikazee will be having their final show after their colorful 15-year career as a band. It will be held on December 10, 2015 at SMART Araneta Coliseum.

Earlier this year, they announced that they would take an indefinite break from the music scene before spending more time with their families and pursuing other interests.

“A few months ago, we said we would take a long break at the end of the year and nothing has changed,” said the band’s manager Kerwin Rosete.

“The band are all still incredibly close to each other but after years of recording and playing live, the time is now right for them to step away from the stage and enjoy other aspects of their lives. And there’s no better way to finish than with a concert alongside many of their best friends, in one of Manila’s greatest arenas and in front of thousands of the best fans in the world.”

Produced and promoted by Spicy Lemon, the show will be a fitting end to a career that has seen Kamikazee - comprising Jay Contreras, Jomal Linao, Led Tuyay, Jason Astete and Allan Burdeos - become one of the most popular live OPM acts in the country.

Although details of the show have yet to be finalised, the band is planning a celebration of their music with collaborations, a hand-picked bill of star support acts and plenty of surprises.

“The band will work closely with the producers at Spicy Lemon to stage a show that will be a fitting farewell to the fans and to thank them for the many years of support they've given the band since Kamikazee started out some fifteen years ago, added Rosete.

“After thousands of gigs around the world the time is right for Jay, Jomal, Led, Puto (Jason) and Bordes (Allan) to step away from the business and spend time with their families, who have been amazingly supportive of Kamikazee.

“As the guys have no plans to play again in the future, the concert on December 10 will be the perfect send-off and a fitting final show for both the band and all their fans.”

Tickets for Kamikazee Live at the SMART Araneta Coliseum on December 10, 2015 will go on sale from the SMART Araneta Coliseum, all Ticketnet outlets and online at

Charlie Puth Live At Eastwood Mall

If you're familiar with the song 'See You Again', an OST from the Fast and Furious 7, you already heard Charlie Puth. He visited Manila and had a free show at Eastwood Mall Atrium, yesterday, October 3. 

The show start very late, some say 'Filipino Time'.  Yes it is, and I hate it. Sea of people are all patiently waiting for our 'Marvin Gaye' to perform. 


After an hour late, Charlie Puth already set his foot on stage and serenade the Eastwood Mall. I just set aside the pain on my back and suddenly forgot I was standing there for 2 hours just to see him and save my spot. 


Charlie thank the Filipino fans and said that it was his first time in the Philippines. 

He all read the banners he saw. 

"I pretend that I am Vin Diesel while writing See You Again"
PS: He wrote the song for only 10 minutes!

Charlie promised to come back in 2016!
