With the rising popularity of the hipster subculture, it’s no shocker that the popularity of music festivals have risen alongside it. After all, what’s the essence of being a hipster if it weren’t open fields, indie music, and a ton of analog (or analog-style -- thanks Instagram) pictures?
Lo and behold -- the popularity catches on in Manila. Just within the past six months, the Malasimbo Music and Arts Festival, Fete dela Musique, and the Manila Music Festival caused a frenzy, and gave hipsters all around the country something to live for (and flood their Instagram feeds with).
On August 18, another music festival is hitting the scene, this time by the UP Junior Marketing Association Publicity Event and Fort Bonifacio Development Corporation, STATUS, Yabang Pinoy, Francis M Clothing Co., PULP, Deeper Manila, and Sari-sari Sounds. Happening in the open field along 34th and 9th streets in Bonifacio Global City (beside Mercato Centrale), Hiraya is a Department of Tourism-supported arts and music festival aiming to showcase the brightest local talents.
The musical line-up boasts of performances by indie pop-alternative ensemble Ang Bandang Shirley, lo-fi crooners Bee Eyes, electro virtuoso SimilarObjects, ambient spins and funky projections by Midnight Aviators, neo-jazz quintet Extrapolation, indie sweethearts Ash Keachum, bass music artisan InkEyes, and many more.
The fest also features a live art installation by street artists SYLV, Uniko-Indio, and Wrapo, as well as dance performances by cultural dance troupe Lahing Batangan, and hiphop crews Soulstice, and Legit Status.
Gates open at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free until 9 p.m., with entrance fee of P50 for the succeeding hours. For VIP tickets, contact Bea at 0918 925 7879 or Denise at 0917 501 4199. Visit facebook.com/upjmahiraya for more details.
Hiraya is made possible in cooperation with Department of Tourism, National Commission for Culture and the Arts, Manila Beer Light, Tanduay Ice, Virgin Cola, and Nippon Paint Pylox Lazer. Also brought to you by Beach Hut Sunblock, Azta Urban Salon, Leslie’s Clover Chips, and The Philippine Star.

The Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) recently announced in a press release that they will open their 45th theater season with a stage play adaptation of the Lino Brocka-Nora Aunor-Philip Salvador film classic Bona. The play is slated to run from August 24-September 23 at the PETA Theater Center. Critically-acclaimed film and theater actress Eugene Domingo will play the title role originally played by La Aunor while Layeta Bucoy wrote the stage adaptation and Soxie Topacio will direct.
The original film was directed by the late National Artist for Film and PETA co-founding member Lino Brocka. the film "Bona" originally centered around a young schoolgirl portrayed by Nora Aunor who became a die-hard fan of Gardo, a wannabe actor essayed by Philip Salvador. Her portrayal won her the Best Actress Award in the 1980 Gawad Urian Awards. The film written by Cenen Ramones also made its way around the globe, first as an official entry in the 1981 Cannes International Film Festival Director's Fortnight. It was cited as one of the "100 Best Films of the World" by The Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles.
Set in modern-day Manila, the stage adaptation of Bona revolves around Eugene Domingo as a spinster call center agent who becomes a fan of Gino Sanchez (Edgar Allan Guzman), a contestant in the talent search “Star of Tomorrow.” Blinded by her obsession on Gino, Bona turns her back on everything she values and gives up nearly everything she has in martyr-like fashion. Trapped in a quicksand of blind worship and pity, Bona proves how obsession may overpower love and even lead to a person's demise.
In the press release, Bucoy shared her insight about the difference of the new Bona from her cinema counterpart. "Eugene's Bona is more empowered; she is financially independent and even supports her family. As a fan, she lays claim to empowerment, as she believes that the inclusion of fan votes in a talent search on TV affords her to choose tomorrow's next big star. Since her admiration is also stamped with pity, blinded with altruism, she gives the aspiring star her all," shares Bucoy.
PULP Live World, Tribal and Colt45 proudly present Symphony of Destruction: A Megadeth Tribute Night this July 20, 2012 (Friday) at Skarlet’s Jazz Kitchen (formerly Ten 02), Timog Avenue, Quezon City. Witness eight of the country’s heaviest and most promising acts – Afterlife, Blasphemous Cremation, Dark Crayola, Deranged, Downgrave Souls, Lavos Beckon and Massacridia – cover some of Megadeth’s biggest and most menacing hits along with their original songs. Gig starts 8 P.M. Entrance is P100, inclusive of one free bottle of Colt 45. The show is in line with the promotion of Megadeth’s concert in Manila this July 29 at Hall D of the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
The Philippine Star writer and former PULP Magazine columnist Igan D’Bayan will present his most recent visual artworks in Mysterious Diseases, which opens this July 10, 2012 8 p.m., at The Pocket Universe Art Collective Shop, second floor of Saguijo Café + Bar.
According to the press release issued by The Pocket Universe, the artist mentioned that his works were inspired by horror/sci-fi movies that revolve around strange experiments. “Art, after all, is one strange experiment itself,” D’Bayan is quoted of saying in the press release. “It is a wellspring of despair.”
For Mysterious Diseases, the artist created portraits inspired by movies such as Dead Snow and Taxideremia and magazines such as Bizarre and Rue Morgue magazines, as well as a “really sick clinical atlas of dermatology” by a Filipino doctor. As D’Bayan was again quoted of saying in the press release, “Several of these portraits — Jesus and Hitler as zombies — can be seen as a commentary on the supposed ‘Death of Painting.’ Well, allow me to steal a line from Frank Zappa – ‘Painting is not dead; it just smells funny.’”
The show is presented by The Pocket Universe Art Collective in cooperation with The Crucible Gallery. The opening will also feature with performances by The Black Vomits (of which Igan is a part of), Turbo Goth, Noli & The Tangeres (featuring virtuoso guitarist Noli Aurillo), among other bands.
The artworks will be displayed at The Pocket Universe Gallery until August 4, 2012. For information, call +63929-8424055 or The Crucible at 635-6061. The Pocket Universe Art Collective is at the second floor of Saguijo, 7612 Guijo St., San Antonio Village, Makati City.
