After only a month of planning, that Saturday night of music, shopping, giveaways, and milk tea finally happened. What happened to be only a musing of sorts turned into one big successful event! I was sick the night before Anteroom Sessions, but what the hell, I really didn’t care because I really wanted to make this event memorable. And even after four days, I still can’t organize my thoughts – blame it on the flu, I guess. But it’s really cool that these artists and brands decided to collaborate with us to bring you a one-of-a-kind weekend art x music experience.
It was Patman’s first time to use this cutter, LOL!
On an INSANE sale!!!
Early birds!!! I love Googly Gooeys from Analog Soul.
And I miss college because of this tee. Almost bought it actually (but then I realized I didn’t bring any money, haha!)
Moonleaf Tea Shop is always packed!
Love Never Dies – love the electric guitar + mixer fusion. Hanna would have loved to listen to their sets
Slow Hello – I love how her voice is so soothing
Manuel Nicolas Alvero – I always see him in gigs like the Heima launch at the LRI and Meiday, but it’s only that day I got to listen to him
Tarsius – It was Diego Mapa’s birthday! And their set was so electrifying, it left the people in shock
Thysz and Jen hosted, with me butting in sometimes, LOL!
Outerhope – J’adore!!! I was a screeching fanboy at the back and I was happily floating among their soundwaves. So calming to listen to! You should download their free tracks (all artists’ links below)
Love in Athens – I was surprised at how strong his music is, plus I love how quirky Francis Regalado is!
Of course, this wouldn’t have been possible without the help of the following brands!
Accommodating and very funny crew at Moonleaf Tea Shop
Splatt MNL accessories – they also sell customized letterman and varsity jackets
FILED! – ’cause something always tells me I will never have enough notebooks
Holic – accessorize with their bracelets – which are subtly adorned by bronze charms
Analog Soul – love ’em shirts!!! I should go get some.
Junk Studio (as manned by my co-intern Pat Remoquillo) – upcycled products up for grabs.
Thank you to everyone who entrusted their Saturday nights to us. We really do hope you enjoyed the sets, the shops, the giveaways, the milk tea, and of course the company that we shared. We can’t wait for the next one. We hope you’re feeling the same way too!
