2nd Arts and Music Festival

NozeGrind Performance

The country may be in a “State of Emergency” but the music and the arts shall never stop expressing their sentiments on what is heppening right now in our country. The recent Arts and Music Festival for the 2nd day of the event were quite vocal on their perspective on what’s happening. In truth the media right now is under a leash, one wrong move and they could easiy be overtaken. It seems every week, a lot has been happening in our country, from the Ultra Stampede the first week, then there’s the Lanslide in Leyte, and now this State of Emergency. I hope PGMA is doing the right thing here and help more in the country’s situation.

I have been listening to the album “Ultraelectromagneticjam” for more than two weeks now and must say this has been a mixed bag for me.

Where Kitchie Nadal, Barbie Almadis, Mishka Adams, Mojofly, Imago and Session Road may have defined the female rock genre with their own style, we can’t deny there are a lot of wannabes who try to follow their path and thus ending up sounding the same.

Rockstar: INXS concludes

J.D. is the new frontman for INXS. Didn’t expect this coming but from his last few performance, especially with INXS it definitely hit off. He’s got this Michael Hutchence-appeal when he performs. For Marty, who is a favorite of mine really, is better of doing his own stuff. I like his song “Trees” and I think would hit off the charts. As for Mig who also thanked us here in the Philippines (awww) is a different breed of his own. Mig is good, but he’s to glam to be an INXS. Like I said before, his song choice may be his ruin, and it did. INXS is looking for a frontman who can ooze sexiness from their songs much like Hutchence did and J.D.’s got it.
