The Sibs and I were fortunate to have watched this extraordinary concert by the one and only, Gloc-9 at the Music Museum in Greenhills, San Juan last Saturday.
We met up with my sister’s friend, Ate Xyza who gracefully assisted us through out this event.
It was the first of the four shows entitled, “Ang Kwento ng Makata, Gloc-9 Live”. Aristotle Pollisco aka Gloc-9 was known for his superduper fast flowing vocal skills. He also writes incredibly patriotic songs that depicts the reality on the lives of the Filipino people.
There were videos shown in between performances and as he explained in one of those, he is a story writer. He writes the stories of modern Filipino people and translates them into songs. These are stories that most of us can identify to—the lives of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), corrupt politicians, homosexuality to name a few.
For the October 10, 2015 show the following were his special guests:
MARC ABAYA (Tsinelas sa Putikan)
KYLIE PADILLA (Walang Natira)
Mr. Robin Padilla was also present to give his full support to his daughter, Kylie.
GLAIZA DE CASTRO (Upuan)
ROCHELLE PANGILINAN (Magda)
JENNYLYN MERCADO (Hari ng Tondo)
Gloc-9 also featured promising artists:
MIGZ (Alalay ng Hari)
REESE (Stan and Love the Way You Lie)
MAYA (See You Again)
Gloc-9 also took time to go down the stage, roam around, and take a selfie with some of the guests.
He expressed his love and idealism to the late Francis Magalona and ended the day with “Kaleidoscope World”.
It was indeed a great show and surely one for the books. You still have a chance to catch a show as he is doing this for all Saturdays of October. The following are the expected special guests:
October 17 – Chito Miranda, Ebe Dancel, Janno Gibbs, Jonalyn Viray and Rico Blanco.
October 24 – Ebe Dancel, Jolina Magdangal, Ogie Alcasid, Regine Velasquez-Alcasid and Yeng Constantino.
October 31 – Ebe Dancel, Jay Durias, Julie Ann San Jose and KZ Tandingan
Tickets are available at ticket world at 891-9999 and Music Museum at 721-0635/721-6726.
