For The Love of OPM


It’s a wonderful time to get into OPM (Original Pilipino Music). Talent is fresh and profesh! The different genres covered are as diverse as the performance spaces. These are a few I’ve tried and liked. Hopefully I can add soon so tune in and check back from time to time!

Basically a house. Very cozy. We saw Munimuni, The Ridley’s, and Coeli who are even better in a more intimate setting! Juan Miguel Severo and Alfonso Manalastas performed their spoken word. Bullet Dumas worked the bar. It was a legendary night straight from my dreams.

Set to close at the end of September, sadly. Attended a small music festival (Quids Night Out) and stayed for 12+ hours! Line up was worth every minute, though.

Attended the Mobius album launch. Very nice facilities in a major CBD. 👌If you catch a show on a Saturday, eat at Mercato (a late night food market) afterwards just across the street! 🤤

Mainly a coworking space but they always host so many cool events geared toward creatives! First listened to Lions & Acrobats here during Komura;, a book fair and hangout for bookworms! Must check out Kwago bookstore while you’re here.

Satchmi Vinyl Day! Another 12+ hour day of listening to my favourites: Munimuni, QUEST, Lions & Acrobats, and Ben & Ben! That’s only half the lineup (everyone was amazing and so was the crowd). Free admission, might I add. Now I’m seriously eyeing a Motorino for next year (they offer great deals during the show).

Attending FebFair is a tradition that’s carried over since undergrad days. Favourite memories include Pulso, Ebe Dancel, and so many more playing in the background (not necessarily in the same year). Also got to help organize a part of the program during my Senior year! 🔥

Still waiting for the day I listen to UDD here. Funnily enough, this is the closest to where I live from all the places on this list. 😂
