group study

Happy to say that Cheats is going on a school tour with some of our favorite bands! Group Study takes Cheats, Flying Ipis, Assembly Generals, Imago, Pedicab and Sandwich to your schools! But, as Cheats guitarist Jason Caballa says, it won’t just be about the music:

In the original sense of the term, Group Study also promises to be an educational, worthwhile experience, as it will also feature talks and forums facilitated by Pinoy visionaries and geniuses, including filmmakers, artists, entrepreneurs, writers, photographers, fashion designers, online personalities, and other tastemakers and trendsetters who have changed the face of our cultural scene in varying degrees, but all for the better. Our aim is to promote nationalism on a scholastic level by inspiring students to support local music, art, and other products of Pinoy creativity, and perhaps rousing something within them to create something as well. And, of course, to give the kids a superb rock show in their own campus. (via Pinoytuner.com)

All well and good but MOST importantly: I want to share the behind-the-scenes photos from our shoot 2 Sundays ago. Lelz. These photos were taken with Pedicab kaossilator master RA Rivera’s phone and Cheats road manager Jam Velarde’s camera.

We all met up at UP Shopping Center at 3PM. Medyo haggard because the previous night was JB Music’s Battle of the Bars finale night (congratulations again to Saguijo and B-side for winning 1million worth of band equipment each!!). We were all pretty much hungover. Or at least I was. Hehe. The boys were told to wear white polos and there was no specific dress code for the girls so I just wore a plaid skirt para school girl-ish pa rin.

Pero nainggit ako when Mayumi of Imago (and Cheats guitarist Mau’s girlfriend — IKR, so cute) arrived in full school girl mode. Hahaha! I didn’t know we were taking it this seriously!! I borrowed our drummer Enzo’s old school uniform and Myrene of Sandwich offered to lend me an extra pair of knee high socks.

When it was our turn, we had no concept ready. Candy couldn’t make it because she injured her back while jumping around on stage the night before #TitaProblems. Hahahaha. She’s okay now so I can laugh about it, okay!?!? Anyway, we just thought of things school kids like doing.

Of course

Of course. The cat didn’t want to take a selfie because it was too cool for it.

Someone said, "let's pretend we're watching porn" - I felt pretty out of place. Lelz.

We had so much fun taking photos, I can’t wait to see the finished ones. We also took a couple of promotional videos!

I’ll post them here once they’re out! We’re definitely going to have more fun at the actual gigs, that’s for sure.

The first leg of the Group Study tour happens on June 26 at the University of Makati. The second leg happens on July 27 at National University. “Like” Group Study on Facebook and follow the Twitter account for updates. If you want to bring Group Study to your school, e-mail groupstudyph@gmail.com.

    Y’all look too youthful, most especially you and Jim! You sure you, guys, are married? I guess that’s what marriage does to you! Keep it up! ;)
