Lees Night November 22, 2005 Tuesday

Lee's Night at Mag:net Café

Mag:net Café
Mag:net Café hosts a number of bands every Tuesday night, hand-picked by ukay-ukay king, rocker, painter and UP icon, Romeo Lee. Best deal in town if you ask me. As a bang-for-the-buck guy, I get to listen to 5 or 6 upstart bands (read: they're hungry and struggling and you can feel that rawness in their music) plus a beer for a very reasonable P100.

And Dad came along
Lee takes the cake for being a raucous throw-back to the rock and roll hey days. My Dad, being a product of the era, should see Lee...or so I thought. Anyway, this night was a treat for me. He finally agreed to come with me to see Da Man. He was wary, given the techno / trance / alternative music he thought pervaded the music scene - a little too much for a Jerry Lee Lewis fan. I don't know how it all came to him. I'm just glad he came ...Lee-wise...bonding-wise.

Taffy Trip
I've heard this band before but nothing lingered on except the commanding presence of Camille, the lead singer. I was wowed to see her perform again. On stage, she exudes talent and being real. Camille belts her heart out as if to say, "this is me...take a piece of my heart". I'm envious. I hope I can do what she does on stage. She's just fab.

Kitchie Nadal Kitchie Nadal spectre
I can't help but compare. When Kitchie performs, it's woody despite the talent. Maybe she's become too big. Perhaps Kitchie was like that too on stage before fame took over. I'm still a big Kitchie fan hoping to see her at her best. Her music continues to stir haunting imagery of a distant angst. Like Camille, I hope she belts it out...not for the media image, not for the money, not to fulfill a contract obligation, but because it's what's inside. Better yet, I think she should do her rounds along small venues again, for a pittance of a fee - if just to remind her where it all began. The Stones do it...Leno does it. I hope she does it.
