Eraserheads Live: Final Set (event proper)
More than 100,000 people, 1 great great band and zero available open parking space at SM Mall of Asia on March 7.
Vox guitar amps for Ely Buendia and Marcus Adoro.
Yamaha drums used by Raimund Marasigan. The promoter had to put a sticker on PMX logo. I wonder who requested it?
Ampeg bass amp for Buddy Zabala.
The Sticker Happy Piano burned by Ely.
Last hour line check.
The man on the monitor mix is Edd Garcia. We have been working together since Sonorous days in the 90s. Sonorous was the official sound and lights provider of Eraserheads when my friend Ann Angala (now Ann Shy) was still managing the band. Wait for the write up about Digidesign mixer and how Edd shares his experience as he learned how to use it and became an expert in one day (rehearsal). The music magazine will feature Edd as the first filipino who used this Digidesign mixer.
Many thanks to Mario Benipayo of Forerunner Technologies for letting us use this powerpacked Digidesign-Pro Tools monitor console mixer (used also by Avril Lavigne). On the night of the rehearsal, Edd, Ferdie and I were figuring out how to save the setting for Eraserheads until I asked Edd to move his flash drive and insert it again. Then we learned that the setting automatically syncs and copies with the flash drive when we checked the flash drive in Edd’s MacBook. The thing that Mario didn’t teach Edd.
It’s show time!
when they say Back of House, you stay Back of House..
congrats!…now we can have dinner. Thanks to Eraserheads (especially to Ely who talked to Edd about the requirements) for his request to MTV to hire PMX to supply their monitor system and technical rider on stage.
