In four days


My first and last Eraserheads live experience happened more than a decade ago in a university campus ground with my sisters. It was back in those days when they still do campus tours. With them were Yano and The Youth. It was also my first time to witness moshing. My sisters and I were in the safe side, thank God. I wonder if Cristina, one of my sisters, still has the tape of the Eresehead’s first album, UltraElectroMagneticPop!

I saw Ely Buendia with his new band, Pupil, years ago at the Metropoint Mall in Pasay City. I didn’t get to hear them because I was just passing by on my way to another appointment. So when I saw him, I stayed for a few minutes and simply stared at him as he talked with his band mates. Its like eternity. He was wearing an all black attire with black shades, his face was flawless.

When I told my brother that we should watch their March 07, 2009 concert, dubbed as The Final Set, he answered we won’t be able to see or hear them. Because the Gold and Silver tickets are way beyond my budget and its only the Bronze ticket that I can afford haha!

So on the 7th of this month, all Eraserheads’ fans road lead to MOA Concert grounds. Who knows I might be there…

They were not able to perform Ang Huling El Bimbo during the concert. I’m sure that on Saturday, they’ll be able to sing this classic song.



  1. Hi Jules…alam mo bang sila ang lagi ko pinapakinggan tuwing sabado dito sa kuwarto ko. Musika nila ang nagpapaalala sa akin sa Pinas. At tuwing may party musika nila sa karaoke ang kinakanta ko palagi., syempre paborito ko ang LIGAYA!!!!! “walang humpay na ligaya.”
