(June 2, 2012)

 A local interpretation of NYC Popfest, we give you Dope MNL x Dr. Martens Philippines Manila Popfest! We've got a summer-ender party of the year right here! Pretty sick line-up too!

Twin Lobster was playing when we got there. Despite the rain during their set...they sounded great! And people didn't mind squeezing in one big tent.

 Ecks Abitona and Elie Centeno of Stache Magazine

Luang sisters of Big Bangs Theory

Some shenanigans inside the Doc Marten's store...

Trippy music from The Strangeness. I remember stopping in awe from where I was when they were playing. I know a good band when I hear one (self-proclaimed music enthusiast). If you haven't checked them out yet, it's about time you should!

Misyonaryo! Something to satisfy your underground hip-hop cravings.


Wacky of Halik ni Gringo hand-carrying his own gear like a true rockstar.
