Trespassing Concert

If checking out the website to confirm the matter counts, then I was April Fooled.

When I saw this from Chito Miranda’s tweet, my initial reaction was, “Really?! This is impossible!” But then I had to check if the website really exists, because I’m gullible like that. :p Of course, it’s a prank. Some of my friends fell for it, too.

But wow, Eraserheads, Rivermaya and Yano- this could’ve been the concert of the decade, maybe century. 😀

Rivermaya started making name in the music industry in the 93s or something, I was about 5 then. Bata pa so laro pa ang priority ko nun.

Until now I still consider it my favorite Eheads song. Anyway, I love them both.)
