Two tributes are coming up in the last week of August.
1. IN MEMORIAM: The Dawn tribute to Teddy Diaz – Aug 26, 2005 – The Hole, Makati
According to their press release, this is the band’s tribute to founding member Teddy Diaz in commemoration of his 17th death anniversary on August 21. Songs which Teddy wrote shall be played and Leni Llapitan of Identity Crisis, who also was one of The Dawn’s session keyboardists, will be manning the keys again for this event.
This promises to be a night of nostalgia for the 80’s geeks and ‘old’ The Dawn fans. I’m just wondering what is the connection between the song Mr. Brightside by The Killers and the late Teddy D.
2. Tribute to Wolfgang – 31 Aug 2005, Premiere THX, Makati
Now this is another interesting show as surviving members Manuel Legarda (now with DRT and Razorback) and Mon Legaspi (now with The Dawn) will join forces with Brian Velasco (Razorback) and Francis Aquino (Monkeyspank, Loquy) on drums and the country’s top rock vocalists to wax nostalgic about this era in Pinoy metal that was dominated by the now legendary Wolfgang. Just the presence of the lovable Roy Brothers (Karl and Kevin – trust me, they ARE lovable) on the line-up should make this interesting. But the part I’m most looking forward to is Mishka Adam’s number(s). Wolfgang going lounge? This, I gotta see.
I’m just glad that this female vocalist who was mentioned before as part of this production was not included in the final list of featured artists. I am expecting this night to be awesome and her being there would most certainly ruin things kasi hindi naman bumibirit ng mala-diva si Basti and I bet bibirit ang babaeng ito pag turn na nya. I’m also not really fond of Jay Ortega as a vocalist but at least I can stand him. Yung girl na yun, ugh. Buti na lang na-scratch sya sa list.
