Last Thursday, a couple of days after Valentine’s day, Manila was treated to the soft pain and sounds of How To Dress Well. His second time back in the Philippines, served as another chance to relive all the heartache and quiet beats from the last time he was here.

Black Market was packed and ready. A mix of lovers, heartbroken boys and girls and music enthusiasts were all lurking in the dark. It was a good night – to fall in love, to cry, to drown whatever worries the heart carried heavy with rhum and bass.

Bitten By The Vamps

Back in 2012, when Brad Simpson, James McVey, Connor Ball and Tristan Evans formed The Vamps, we’re pretty much sure they wouldn’t have imagined the scenes that met them during their MOA arena show. Thousands of fans blazing their appreciation for the boys, camera phones recording every second of their high-strung performance and screams that could only be described as “deafening”. The Filipino fans indeed know how to show their love for the lads from London. Truly, the band seems to agree with this, as they declared onstage “'Manila, you are the best and loudest crowd!”.

Tycho Live in Manila

No, it wasn’t prom (that happened over a decade ago) and yet I had my heart out on my sleeve. As I ran through the hallways trying to find out where the theater was in this labyrinth-like hotel, I was slowed down by the casino’s security and the sheer exhaustion that came with the long day that was. It’s been a difficult past few months; a new job that needed a lot of getting used to and the once familiar part of a whole was missing. It was a pain that I had to endure.

A little more mascara

“And everything's sparkle dust
bugle beads, ostrich plums
when it's a beaded lash
that you look through”

For its 2015 season opener, Gawad Buhay award-winning theater company 9 Works Theatrical hearkens back to the sequins, costumes, feathers and glamorous fervor of the 70s as the company that brought you Grease, They’re Playing Our Song and Sweet Charity brings to life one of Broadway’s most beloved musicals – the three time Tony Award-winning musical hit, La Cage Aux Folles.

He looks like a secret agent man. Sleek black suit, clean cut, shiny shoes, all matched with an infectious charming persona. But he’s not quite Bond. He’s Bublé​... Michael Bublé​. And like a good Bond movie, his concert got us hooked from the start to finish – filled with action packed numbers and generous patches of love.

And in true Bond fashion, it starts with fire. Sliding into view from behind a billowing curtain as flames shot up at the front of the stage. “Fever” was his song of choice and certainly apt given the shrieks and screams that greeted him from the audience.

The 1975 in Manila

They say love is so much sweeter the second time around. I guess it’s true but you know love can be very complicated and some people actually just like the drama that comes with it. So maybe, I should stop rambling about that and get through this review in one piece. 

Last January 24, 2015, Manila was treated to a one night only show by none other than The 1975.  It was almost a year ago when they played 4 jam-packed shows at 4 Ayala Malls in 2 days to a crowd that left them all awestruck.  Everyone was screaming at the top of their lungs! As to why they were wailing as loud as they could, I’d like to think it was because they couldn’t handle the disbelief that finally they were face to face with the Manchester based band.
