It was a nostalgic night for me and my posse (Nathan, JR and myself) as we dare to be different that night of December 5, and travel through time and landed at Alan’s Grill, its right inside Marikina Shoe Expo. A popular place in Cubao during the early eighties up to mid nineties where they sell quality handcrafted shoes that were made in Marikina. Now they sell water filters because of Ondoy lol.
We party all night with songs and tunes from the 80’s and 90’s, particularly New Wave music. It was way much cooler if they offer Beer Hausen, Manila Beer, Lagerlite or Carlsberg haha! DJ’s George Frederick of WXB 102 – The Station That Dares to be Different was the first to do the mixing of vinyls on the turntables to the delight of all old schooler’s at the venue! He initially played the song “Do they know its Christmas” by Band-AID. Other cool songs from Echo and the Bunnymen, Depeche Mode, New Order, The Smiths etc.. etc.. echoed throughout the night.
Other discjockey icons were there too! The pretty Lady DJ AGNES MACASAET, Tazmanian Devil, Harry Nolan and Jay Laforteza to name a few. I like to hang all of you haha! I love this kinda gig. It brings back good ol’memories. Long Live New Wave era!
