Quezon City: Hilera and Franco at 70's Bistro

A week before watching Parokya Ni Edgar gig, my officemates Ahmster and Marco, asked me if I want to watch Hilera and Franco's gig at 70's Bistro.  I didn't think twice of course.  Franco has been one of my favorite bands for quite sometime now and watching them perform live will be a great experience for me.

They usually rock the house on a scheduled Monday evening. It's already 9pm at our office and I kept on asking Marco, "Di pa ba tayo aalis?". (Are we not going there yet?) Excited much? Haha.

We arrived before 10pm and luckily we got a good viewing seat infront! Same procedure, you need to pay the entrance fee before entering the establishment (Php 150) and a free drink is included with the entrance ticket that you just need to present to any waiter.  Some friends were also invited to watch with us, and while waiting for Hilera's set what we did was to take some shots with the very beautiful and newly renovated backdrop of 70's Bistro

And now, Hilera's set is on. It was also my first time to see this band perform.  Hilera is composed of only three band members: Chris Padilla (on vocals & guitar),  Ivan Garcia (on guitar) and Bobby Padilla (on drums). I love their song Define but unfortunately that wasn't included in their playlist for that night.  I like their rendition of "Mahirap Magmahal ng Syota ng Iba", Nothing New and the song Pilit (i love this song too), gladly it was included and sang it well.  They were very accomodating when asked if we could take pictures with them, super like! :)

Done with Hilera's performance.  Awesome! They really perform well with great energy on stage!  Love it guys!

A few photo ops with Hilera outside 70's Bistro, and now we're down to 2nd and last performance - Franco

For everyone's info, Franco as a band is composed of members came from different bands: Franco Reyes of InYo (on vocals), Gabby Alipe of Urbandub (on guitar), Paolo "8" Toleran of Queso (on guitar), Buwi Meneses of Parokya ni Edgar (on bass guitar), and JanJan Mendoza of Urbandub (on drums).

Oh well, the moment they hit it I was just busy singing my hearts out to Franco's song. I love almost all of their songs, but my favorites are Seasons, Memory Kill, A Mass for the End of Time.  Here's my share of shots with them.

What a night to remember!! Same with Hilera, we were able to take pictures with each band member of Franco after their set around 1-130am.

Hilera and Franco are just two of Filipino bands we should be proud of.  More gigs to come!

The gods instructed Pharroh to give the Jews all that gold as temptation, and it worked.
So unlike Pharroh, but an effective corruptor which was responsible for the 40 years of warmongering under Joshua. This caused another host of problems to befall the Jewsish people as well.

Even as peasant farmers we could be lulled::Good weather, bountiful harvests, etc. This is what old-world preachers were good for.
This stereotypical preacher had classic preaching styles:::Loud, damnation-fueled teachings. Contrast to today, preachers who are lulling the Damned into cruise control. The old-world style was important to snap people out of complacency. Unfortunately, in today's enviornment people consider this style insulting, and they lose a precious message designed for the favored of yesterday.

I speak of how The Beast has changed the country and the world with Californication. Whereas 20 years ago the young women used to ridicule homosexuality now they find it acceptable. Come the next generation the norm may be experimentation.
Not in the South. The Southern man has retained even more time, consider homosexuality an abomination and reject bi-racial unions, rightfully so. Unfortunately, much like the immigration issue the gods use hated to accomplish the region's value system among the masses.
Understand the Matrix/reality duality::::For every issue the gods have their REAL reason for creating an issue. In the case of the SOuthern man it is because they have the conbination of favor/disfavor which allows them to maintain the god's conservative stance embraced by humanity throughout time.
Of course the giveback in the SOuth would be elements like overconsumption of alcohol, abandoning the gods for NASCAR Sunday, tattoo freaks violating the body the gods gave them in their image. Pure favor it is not:::What they gain in a decent value system they lose elsewhere. The fact the gods preyed upon the Southern man with a drug-driven, junkie-laden brilliant regional rock bands is a bad sign. The perpetual nature of country music is another:::Rock is dead. Too many of these rednecks live in ignornace and feel their perpetual music genre is a sign of favor. Quite the opposite is true.
I have repeatedly illustrated the frequency of "reverse positioning". This is yet another.

The United States is a dumping ground for the disfavored. THis was how it was used during European immigration, this is how it is used today.
The Japanese Earthquake/Tsunami of 3/11/11 was actuslly a good sign for the people. Alarming because it came decades after their most recent admitted atrocities during WWII, at least they will experience corrective punishment, whereas the United States won't be as lucky.
Russia too enjoyed corrective punishment for the 1980 invasion of Afghanistan.
THere is something about this country. Interferring/injuring the Afghan people incurrs he god's wrath. It cost the SOviets their protection of communism. Now the gods have leveled the playing field among the last few white peoples who still enjoyed it on their way to a homogeneous global enviornment. If I am right about the United States we won't be as lucky. When we go down it will be for good, and there will be no recovery.
Yes, the clone host fake politicians have been plannign for this for decades. Ronald Reagan turned a $1 trillion Federal debt into $6 trillion at the end of his Administration. Much like W in Iraq, this served to terminate the favor of a group of people. Reagan just didn't have to do it with violence as W did, but he did do it against white people, which says something.

150 + free drink means I'll be paying P150 and I'll be giving a drink to the waiter?
