Psy look-alike A’s Event Review here.
It’s a silent Saturday in the heart of the Makati Central Business District. It seems that everyone is busy at either Komikon or the first day of the Pinoy Gaming Festival (which turned bad, spare the second day). We here at The dere-moe Project are taking it easy and less mainstream, as we cover an afternoon of Japanese music, which is called Otomonogatari.
After the success of Natsumonogatari, organizer Ninjin Events had the opportunity to have another event on its list – and have us in their party.
This is the first time The dere-moe Project got its recognition as a media partner, and even though it’s a minor event, I feel something grand in it.
Mr. A told me that I have an opportunity to talk with the bands backstage (most of the bands I hanged out with after their performance are those competing in the Oto-Beat J-rock competition), in which I have in this SkyDrive folder and will be soon uploaded to YouTube. The shots I took basically has very low lighting so I am thinking twice if I shall upload this to YouTube or not.
Mr. A and me have the same sentiments for this event – the event was a good one. I don’t like the sound system for their major malfunctions, although it tried not to screw up the event for me.
The contestants / performers were good. …and did I almost forgot to mention that we had a major Japanese guest (a talent of an independent record label) belting her latest single in front of the audience? T’was a feel-good Saturday.
Of all the events this author has attended to, Otomonogatari is different — it felt like a smorgasbord of Japanese music to me, and this is the first time I was able to be in such splendor. It’s not that grand but it still it is satisfying. Never mind if the organizers are no bigwigs who can send Japanese bands in our shores — the local J-pop and J-rock bands collide in one place to enjoy Japanese popular music, and that’s all that matters for now.
