Backstreet Boys: Ruling the '90s Boyband Style

Title: Backstreet Boys: Ruling the '90s Boyband Style
Written by Jamie Ortega

People term it as a guilty pleasure, like munching chips in the middle of the night or texting an ex-boyfriend. But for die-hard fans (just like this writer), boy bands are more than just a guilty pleasure, they provide music that never fails to inspire. What makes boy bands so irresistible? Let us count the ways- they produce songs that are perfect for any occasion. Who hasn’t hummed to I Will Never Break Your Heart in the shower while going to work, or at your favorite Karaoke joint? Who hasn’t copied the dance moves of Step By Step? There’s also the precise choreography, dapper outfits, and boyishly handsome good looks to contend with, all wrapped up in one delectable package-ooh- la- la!

MCS Concert Review: Pinoys Go Gaga over Gaga

Title: Pinoys Go Gaga over Gaga
Written by Jamie Ortega

Lady Gaga is just like us. Sure, we aren’t crazily famous; nor do we have outlandish costumes or gazillions of dollars at our disposal. So, how are we like the Grammy Award-winning Popstar? Because just like the rest of the human race even international singing superstars possess feelings and emotions that can easily be hurt. The controversial performer showed just how human she is at the Born This Way Ball concert last May 21 & 22, 2012 as she shed tears while uttering the words, “I am not a creature of your government, Manila,” amid protests to have her concert banned in Manila.

How do we know? Because she’s often praised Pinoys in interviews. To add to that, can you believe the pop star wore the outfit of Pinoy designer Kermit Tesoro in her latest album cover, Marry The Night? Yup, the rubber armor was crafted by Pinoy designer Tesoro together with another Filipino, Leeroy New, a sculptor known for his avant-garde style. Gaga was so impressed by Tesoro’s work she posted the cover art on her Twitter account!

All hail to the power and might of an industry trailblazer- someone who sees the potential in something and carves his own path, paying zero attention to the naysayers. 33 years ago, back in 1979, when concert production and promotion wasn’t really the “in thing,” Renen De Guia promoted his first concert. He was working as the Artists & Repertoire Manager for Polygram Records and met then teenage superstar Leif Garrett during the singer’s promo tour in the Philippines. Renen promoted the concert of Lief one year after.

One reason why it has become harder to penetrate the music scene these days is the stiff competition, especially with YouTube giving any talent the window to the world. But wait, there’s still truth to the saying that “many are called, but few are chosen.”

Concert Review: Vertical Horizon and Ed Kowalczyk Live in Manila

I had to dig out my dusty old Vertical Horizon CDs in preparation for their double-bill show with Live’s Ed Kowalczyk at the Araneta Coliseum last Saturday night. Along with a few friends, I went on a long drive out to Pampanga earlier that day and blasted the band’s songs for the most part of the trip. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed their music back in college and during my early years as a young adult trying to find my way out in the real world.

Concert-Goer of the Month(May 2012): "We Like to Party!"

Title: We Like to Party!
Concert: The Maine Live in Manila 2012
Written and Photos by  Marionne Sobremisana

"March 31 is a day that will definitely be remembered."

It has been a year since The Maine went to Manila for a tour. Due to our research, I was not able to go to their first show during LIV3. And when I found out that they are going to Manila for their first full-length tour, I immediately asked for permission, even going as far as crying and practically begging just to get my mom to say yes. (Because my dad was nice enough to permit me immediately) and she did, thankfully, but on the condition that this concert will be fully funded by me. And I said yes, because I’m not risking The Maine. But then, Platinum was already sold out a week after the announcement of the tour and my parents did not allow me to avail PULP Royalty even though we can afford it because they were also thinking of the people accompanying me. Nevertheless, I did not lose hope. So I sucked up my so-called “depression” and went for Gold instead.
