Ang Banda ng Bayan

Rivermaya won this year's MTV Asia Award for Favorite Artist - Philippines. How cool is it that they're the first Pinoy band invited to play at the awards ceremony (held in Bangkok this year)? They had a scheduled gig at Conspiracy Wednesday night, and a good friend wasn't about to let it pass without us going to see them. Got there at around 11pm, and not surprisingly, the place was packed. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that the band decided to chuck the cover charge; their way of saying thanks to their fans who no doubt voted like crazy for their pinoy idols.

The band didn't have a setlist. Instead, they let the crowd decide what they would perform. About halfway through the set, I yelled out "Last Goodbye." Almost immediately, Rico picked up Mike's acoustic guitar and started on the Buckley classic. Ayos. Solved.

Some photos from that gig.
