The Burn Magazine launch, SM Mall of Asia, November 24, 2006. A sort of Pulp Magazine with a twist.
We got there around 9:00 p.m., concert started at 4 p.m., and were still able to watch performances by 6 Cyclemind, Sugar Free, Pupil, Moonstar 88, Hemp Republic, Nyco Maca, Drip, Sino Sikat?, Imago, Up Dharma Down, Lokomotiv, Radio Active Sago Project, Hale, Itchyworms & Bamboo.
That was long. Can I make this longer and say a thing or two for each artist? Please?
6 Cycle Mind
I know Tutti (drummer) is also the vocalist of Protein Shake so kudos to his talent and I now know that he has the most fans in the band.
Sorry we were eating while they were playing but then again not much wrong can come from a Sugar Free performance.
Doc was the boyfriend of a dear friend of mine and I don’t like her stories about him. – So? Ely always seems unhappy.
The new vocalist to me is more appealing than Acel but sings exactly like Acel. The blind can almost not tell the difference.
We used to play with them a lot and I noticed some changes in the line-up. Can the vocalist please modify her reggae moves a bit? Sorry Bunny.
I can’t believe she was that girl in Star in a Million. She looks nothing like pop music. Dylan (host) was right, even girls would fall in love with her when she sings. First time I heard your music, not really for live masa performances but I’m sure I’ll love it in a disc.
Again it’s hard to get the crowd going without live drums and their type of music is for sound-tripping sessions. A very cold and pleasant voice.
As I’ve said before, no one can top this girl in terms of performing. Not even Cherry from Cherry Corn Flakes. She reminds me of Nicolette Bell. Nick (guitars) always thanks us for “the support”. Funny.
Aia seems to get wilder (performance) every time I see them. Tara Let’s sounds like a Fatal Posporos song.
Up Dharma Down
Was waiting for them the whole night because I, unlike you, have not seen them live. They’re cool even without much movement. The vocalist reminded me of Stevie Wonder.
Ryan Hudson? What the? Where’s Basti? I wish Dave Aguirre would just go back to Razorback. Excellent guitar player. Wolf Gemora on the other hand is still doing his drum rolls that reminded me of how we hated him when he got away with a Zildjian sponsorship. Why oh, why? Apparently, he still does?
Radio Active Sago Project
Especially after that Lokomotive performance… Brought the house down. Alcohol!
Went to the comfort room, stayed in the comfort room. I’m only impressed when they play small club gigs.
I can still remember my mom cracking from their jokes at Rockestra. I love that beer song so much and with that medley, they’ve almost exposed how they composed the song. Genious.
Ira with a PRS guitar? Their equipment boxes labelled “Bamboo Tour?” How big is this band already? No drum solo. Boo! Drop the Rage Against The Machine cover (Killing In The Name). Please.
Now with all that out of the way, the equipment sucked. I think it was during Imago’s set that the Fender amplifier started to buzz. Busted tubes or something. Their backup amp was a Hartke. Can’t even bring an all-tube guitar amplifier for an event as big as this? Where are the Marshall’s and the Mesa’s? After that, no guitar would come out of the main speakers. What mobile was this? Also, Mall of Asia’s Music Hall seems to bring the worst acoustic characteristics from a controlled environment and from an open environment. I don’t know but it did not sound good. At least from where we were seated – the VIP area. Yes I’m a VIP. Only because Poch Bermudez – Mr. CEO is my first cousin and we lived under the same roof for about half a year. Free food and it was good. Free drinks and there were plenty. Good hosts. Dylan from NU107 and John Joe who was not really that cool in high school (my classmate). Loads of sponsors. Congratulations to Burn and the Burn team.
Unfortunately, I forgot my camera. But here are the photos from H.I.P.’s site.
