Franco live in Singapore 2014

Posted: March 11, 2014 in Franco

It was almost two years ago when Franco last visited Singapore for a gig and it was way different back then. The frontman had all the stage by himself armed with only his Harana acoustic, a smaller version than the usual. On March 9, 2014, Franco brought his whole cavalry to the St. James Power Station delivering rock goods to the pinoy fans in Singapore. The show was made possible by Marketing Mix Cottage, iConnectSG, SG Goons Tattoo, in support of Requiem Rising SG. Our photo group MASP was part of the media coverage which gave me an all access pass to all the corners of the venue. Our newly set-up musicians’ group Aftershock also took part in the event with some of our boys UlingGang and Four Days Ahead opening up for Franco.

Jam Review, Morning in June, HoA, UlingGang, and Four Days Ahead were the bands that took the honour of sharing the platform with one of the most popular post-grunge band in the Philippines.

Franco was announced to be Requiem Rising & Pinoytuner‘s last leg of the Aquostika series for 2012. Held at a decked out joint along Bali Lane, Blu Jaz Cafe once again, swayed to the rhythms of OPM & acoustic renditions as one of the revered Philippine artist infused reggae-influenced OPM alternative music to pinoys living in Singapore. Our group MASP was tasked to cover the event and it was futile not to when the artist you are covering has revolutionized the verve of OPM. The show’s turn-out was more than what was expected as the two-night gig sold-out weeks before the event. (more…)
