Celebrated my birthday the best way I know how, at a bar gig with one of my favorite bands on Earth.
When I found out that Razorback would be playing in SanMig Alabang, I asked the husband and best man to reserve a table for us right away. My brother and his girlfriend joined us as well, along with a couple of my best friends.
As I’d expected, the night turned out to be a reunion of sorts, and I’m really happy I got to spend time with some good friends whom I’d not seen in a while.
|With my best friend in the whole world!|
|Me and the only remaining 28 year old in our group.|
|Pao, Mars, Me – Together in rakenrol since 2004!|
A lot of people get surprised when they find out that I actually have some friends in the music scene. I had the privilege of meeting most of them at my first job, where I learned the ins and outs of organizing concerts and music events. I have such fond memories of those days, and I’m happy and proud to say that I worked with the best. I learned from some of the greatest in the industry.
|Mr C and I with Kevin Roy|
|With my former big boss, and the best bassist in Manila, Louie Talan|
I totally enjoyed the show, and I’m glad that Razorback played my faves Nakaturo Sa’yo and Diwata. Bonus feature, my forever crush Basti Artadi sang a few songs too, so I got to play fangirl for a night.
|Not looking at the cam hehehe!|
|Wolfgang + Razorback|
|Of course I had to get everything on video|
|Razorback, still as good as I remember!|
Highlight of the evening – I actually dared Mari to take a photo of Basti holding up a sign that says HAPPY BIRTHDAY PATTY if he happened to be at the gig. Didn’t think she’d actually do it (with a little help from Pao and Mr C)!
|I’m still unable to act like a grownup in front of this guy hahaha!|
I totally missed this. Thanks, guys, for a fun birthday!
