Opening For China Crisis
January 20, 2011
A few weeks back we learned, through recommendations by friends, that the management of Megaworld and Eastwood City were exploring to invite The Camerawalls as one of the front acts for the China Crisis shows here in Manila. It’s not until a couple of days ago we’re given a green light on this opportunity.
On Januray 22 at 7:30 PM, we will be opening for them at The Venice Piazza, Mckinley Hills at Fort Bonifacio. Our second time to do so for a well-known foreign act, the first being Club 8. China Crisis is a significant act during the New Wave movement in the 80s. Best of all you can hear and watch them live for free! See poster for details…
The Dragonfly Collector
January 17, 2011
Sometime in October of 2010, I pondered on kick-starting a personal blog. I gave in to the egging of some friends and a couple of weeks later I was publishing entries for Dragonfly Collector
It’s a place in the web that serves as my online diary where I post anything from my day to day ordinary living ranging from music, films, books, travels, literature, people, or just about anything I find inspiring or amusing. Every week I also post acoustic demos of cover songs in a section called Cover To Cover.
Come visit and feel free to interact with my musings. http://dragonflycollector.com
