Y! Rocks is an effort by Yahoo Philippines to promote OPM. I don’t know how exactly they’re planning to do it, or if it involves more initiatives other than holding a concert every year (which as announced, they would).
The concert we attended (in Mall of Asia concert grounds) was one of the three that are simultaneously being held all throughout the country. The concert was available via live streaming as well.
Some of the bands we got to see were Pupil, Wolfgang, The Dawn, General Luna, Parokya ni Edgar, Sandwich, and a few others.
It was raining like crazy but we couldn’t pass up such good tickets. After the concert, I was sneezing all through the drive home. ) But it was great! Music is not much up my alley, but I did enjoy myself very much. The bands I liked best were Parokya ni Edgar and The Dawn (K will say it’s Pupil, though).
The rain barely let up for the first 2 or 3 hours, but luckily, it stopped just when our favorites took the stage, so I got a few photos (first time I was close enough to the stage to take em!). One guy squeezed himself in the space right in front of me. I wanted to slap him but I slowly but steadily boxed him out of our space instead. He went away eventually. Haha!
