Happy 2nd, Epic!

Quezon City., October 1, 2016 – Epic Events, a family of young, driven, and passionate individuals brought together by their collective love for the art of organizing, managing and/or producing events, celebrated their 2nd year anniversary by having a birthday gig at Mow’s Underground Bar which aimed to support and promote the local independent music scene.

Epic Events invited SUD as their headliner since their first produced gig. Playing for the second time were Rob and the Hitmen and There’s Era. First timer bands to play were Jensen and the Flips, Peryodiko, Run Dorothy and Zipcode.

Zipcode, a band formed in Los Angeles, opened the show and it was their first gig here in the Philippines. Run Dorothy performed next, singing songs from their EP ‘Sanguine’ which they launched last August 1, 2016. Peryodiko caught the hearts of the people when they sang their original song “Tayo Lang Ang May Alam”. There’s ERA, who consider themselves a punk rock/ alternative rock band, sang “Kung Kailan Kailangan Ka” which gave feelings to all feelings. Rob and the Hitmen played some of their English original songs and switched the mood by singing Closer by The Chainsmokers and gave it a different zest the hitmen way. Jensen and the Flips played next. They got the audience flipping at Stay With Me, singing “Alright, alright, alright, alright” with them and mashing-up different songs for the intro of Dangerous. Last but definitely not the least was SUD. Their song “Sila” is a must play now that it is becoming everyone’s favorite. SUD did not disappoint, their songs reminded us to always #bringyourlover. They definitely delivered a finale set for Epic Events’ 2nd anniversary.

One of the heart touching moment during the gig was when Peryodiko’s front man Vin Dancel talked about how laborious it was to run a production company. It became an affirmation for the people behind Epic Events that what they were doing is beneficial to the local independent music scene– putting up an event with bands of diverse genres and sharing the music to old and new audience.

Shout out to Foodpanda for sponsoring discount vouchers for all the attendees. Amplify.Ph, IndieManila, Support Your Local Indie Scene and WhenInManila.com for being their media partners and Mow’s for housing the event. Epic Events would also like to express their appreciation to all sponsors, media partners, venue partners, suppliers and to all those who has been supporting and believing in them from the very start.

These three-leg anniversary gig — PreGame, Over Coffee and Epic Year 2, produced by Epic Events was their way of sharing also their passion for all types of events and production with the goal of creating lifelong memories and long term friendship.

From Epic Events “See you next year, awesome people!”

PreGame

Pano ko ba sisimulan to? Ang bilis din kasi ng mga pangyayare. Puso at lakas ng loob kaya nabuo tong PreGame. From venue to title to talents to artworks to promotions to sponsors to program. Kinikilig padin ako/kami please.

3 days before the event, we have to adjust the program. Ang hanash don is nakapagrelease na kami ng program. Saya po. Pati syempre yung call times ng mga talents kailangan namin iadjust. Taranta talaga.Pero, praise God okay naman saa lahat yung adjustment.

On the day of the event naman, muntik kami mabawasan ng talent tapos 6pm na sobrang lakas ng ulan. Kailangan namin mag-start ng 7pm. Hay. Iba din. Pero wala na naman kami magagawa, we did our best to prepare for the event. Bahala na yung mga tao. hehe.

PreGame Jitters

This is the first time na nagproduce kami (Epic Events) ng event. Last week, inaalala ko how we started. Super nostalgic.

Na-reveal na namin lahat ng artists. Iba. Iba yung feeling. Kasi parang yun na eh, nabigay na namin lahat. (Ano daw?!) Hindi ko alam how people are going to react to the event’s line up. But it is the best that we can offer, for now.

Sobrang kinakabahan ako. 22 days before the event. We still have a lot to arrange and to prepare but I am thankful that I have my 3 partners — Cholo, Gel and Kaye. Uhmmm. Shocks. Pwede umiyak? :))))

Advance happy anniversary to us and to everyone who has been part of our awesome journey! Cheers! See you on July 9!
