The Kind of Fix that is Bombay Bicycle Club

Bombay Bicycle Club Manila Concert

You should have heard the collective squeal-scream (Screal? Definitely not ‘squeam’ though) of fans during last May’s Wanderland Music and Arts Festival when Karpos Multimedia announced Bombay Bicycle Club’s performance for July. It was the same screal–with more applause this time–that reverberated throughout the World Trade Center
when the award-winning English indie rock band gave their Filipino fans enough reason to venture to the venue through a monsoon evening. Almost needless to say, it was the fans’ energy that made frontman Jack Steadman gush out: “I haven’t been to a country where were greeted with such love.” That’s how we are here, gentlemen.

Bazooka Rocks Festival 3: Two Days of Thrill

We’re close to the day of reckoning again as one of the highly anticipated pop-punk festival blasts off once again. Or should we say, “days” of reckoning? On its third year, Bazooka Rocks Festival is back with a louder and more vibrant lineup. To add to the thrill, it is extended for another whole day. This time, Pulp Live World tops their previous festivals by adding a more diverse set of acts including pop-punk, post hardcore/emo, an indie pop and even a metalcore band. On August 30 and 31 at the SMX Convention Center, get ready for a blast of music, fun and overall happiness as Bazooka Rocks Festival 3 is guaranteed to rock your socks off. Expect a curiously amusing set of attractions and games, with freebies and surprises attached to them.

Bazooka Rocks 3 Music Festival Schedule

The band lineup is divided into a specific grouping. For the first day, the more “veteran” post-hardcore bands are set to play (those that have been together since the early 2000s or even earlier). On the 2nd day, the “contemporary” pop-punk bands are set to thrill.

Read on for a short introduction of the foreign acts for the two days.

DAY 1: August 30, 2014
The 1st day is dominated by post-hardcore bands who were in the limelight in early to late 2000s. In the headlines are The Used and Taking Back Sunday who are known to be great friends with each other. They’ve toured and headlined shows together across America and certain parts of the world. Both bands have also performed in Manila on separate occasions in 2012.

The Used is a rock band formed in 2001, composed of Bert McCracken, Quin Allman, Jeph Howard and Dan Whitesides. They are known for songs like “Blue and Yellow”, “Taste of Ink”, “All That I’ve Got”, “I Caught Fire (In Your Eyes)” and more recently “Cry”. The band has just released their 6th studio album this April titled “Imaginary Enemy”.

Taking Back Sunday released their first album titled “Tell All Your Friends” in 2002, which turned out to be one of their most memorable albums until now. Their lineup has changed over the years since then, but the original TAYF lineup including Adam Lazzara, John Nolan, Eddie Reyes, Shaun Cooper and Mark O’Connell. Some of their trademark tracks include “Cute Without the E”, “You’re So Last Summer”, “A Decade Under the Influence”, “MakeDamnSure” and “Flicker, Fade”. They’ve released a total of 6 studio album, their most recent one titled “Happiness Is”.

Saves the Day was formed twenty years ago when the band members were still in high school. The pop-punk/emo band has undergone numerous lineup changes over the years with Chris Conley as the only mainstay member. They’ve released 8 studio albums to date.

Astronomical Flare: Sam Tsui and Kurt Schneider Live in Manila

Sam Tsui and Kurt Hugo Schneider Live in Manila
YouTube stars Sam Tsui and Kurt Schneider conquer one country, one show at a time.

Sam Tsui and Kurt Schneider’s musical breakthrough can be likened to the beginning of a star. Like gas clouds pulled together by gravity, music was the gravity that pulled them to similar paths, and set their world into a whirlwind musical adventure. From College Musical to collaboration projects, and composing original songs throughout the years, their light has only gotten brighter.

This light passed by Manila with intense luminosity, even if for a few nights. Two shows, two different crowds coming together for the supernova that is a live performance. Inside the concert hall, early birds waited patiently, as more fans trickled in the venue.

Rita De Guzman

Rita De Guzman, clad in an all black glittery outfit commanded the stage with her confidence as she opened the show. Though her time on stage was brief, she showcased her vocal abilities in three songs. She ended her set with an original, which was refreshing from the norm where local talents limit their capabilities to renditions or cover songs.

The atmosphere, though dark and frosty, rang with anticipation. The crowd knew what was coming next. Red lights in synch to a pulsating beat triggered more suspense. As drummer Joel Manduke, followed by guitarist Jason Pitts, appeared on stage, the hall resounded with screams. As Kurt ran to his keyboard, the screaming intensified, and the crowd broke loose as soon as Sam darted on stage.
