Life In Music: A Benefit Gig

A great prod team, an awesome lineup, and a laudable cause. What more can you ask for?

Thursday night was Life in Music night at Route as Docdef Productions and Life in Music PH brought together ten acts (yes, TEN ACTS) in one stage. With  Amplify.ph as one of the media partners, I got the chance to cover the gig along with two of my co-interns (yay for internship! :3 ). (more…)

It was the 6th of December, the night for All for Love: Pagbangon Gikan sa Dilubyo, a fundraising concertfor the benefit of typhoon Yolanda victims.

Route 196’s sign was not that big but that night, the letters and numbers on it screamed.  Their impact was even intensified by the redness and whiteness of its font, standing out against the black background that almost merged with the blackness of the night sky. Below it, there was another sign containing the names of the performers for the night: Johnoy Danao, Mike Shimamoto, She’s Only Sixteen and more.
