Before all else, HELLO MAY!!
Anyway, so most of you may not know that I listen to metal or post-hardcore bands. (They are pretty entertaining, okay.) And since I’m a fan of the band, A Skylit Drive, I learned that they would perform at the Pulp Summer Slam this year (April 27, 2013 at the Amoranto Stadium)!
"PULP Summer Slam is an annual music festival in the Philippines… The festival consists of local and international rock and metal bands with the occasional line-up of other genres."
So yeah, basically we went to the event. It was my first time to go to the Slam but my friend and I still got the Royalty passes (VIP) ‘cause of the perks!!
Sulit ‘di ba? Well, it was super worth it since the experience was more enjoyable ‘cause of the snake pit and if we get tired, we would just sit down inside and chill, eat pizza and drink. Stuff like that. Plus we met our all-time favorite band, A Skylit Drive!!!
So yeah, here’s my experience through pictures.
Chicosci! I love Miggy Chavez now. (Sorry Nima.)
Philia. We were actually on our way to the general merch tent when we heard this girl shout we literally looked at each other and ran to the stage (Gail and I (Gail’s the friend who bought the royalty pass too!) ran to the snake pit) ‘cause it’s not everyday you hear a girl scream. She’s pretty too and I didn’t know until yesterday that THAT girl is Arci Munoz. Whoo~
A SKYLIT freaking DRIVE!!!!! I don’t have a picture of them as a whole while they were on the stage though (:c) But UGH THEY ARE JUST….. AMAZING, AWESOME, COOL, HOT, every good word the mind could think of. They deserve to play more, y’know. And they’re the nicest band!!! They hung out with the fans even if their set was finished. My friend, Gail, even got a photo with Cory La Quay (the drummer). I’m a big fan of Brian White (the bassist and the guy that screams for the band (upper right photo)) but I wasn’t able to take a photo with him. Boo. :c Then there’s Kyle the keyboardist (the guy holding the bass with the A (he does the bass when Brian is busy screaming)), Nick the guitarist (bottom left) and Jag the singer (bottom right). They are really an amazing band.
Dragon Force. I’m not really a big fan of them but I could say that they were awesome!! If you guys play Guitar Hero 3, you may know some of their songs. (I forgot which though)
This is my last set of photos. As I Lay Dying. I could say that they stole the show. With all those pyrotechnics and fans cheering for them, everyone was pretty much hyped up during their set. Even I, who’s not a fan of theirs, really loved their show.
There were more bands like Circa Survive, Cannibal Corpse, Coheed and Cambria, Amoral, Mr. Bones and the Boneyard Circus (local band), and Kamikazee. I can say that every band was awesome and each had their own thing to make the audience really hyped up for their set but I wasn’t able to take photos of them since we still had to hang out with our friends who didn’t buy the royalty passes. Still, it was super fun and hands down to PULP for an amazing event. Wish you guys luck and bring A Skylit Drive for Bazooka Rocks!!
