Last Saturday was a great night for music at 12 Monkeys Music Hall & Pub.

PUPIL invited our band Cheats to open for their video launch and obviously we said HELL YEAH! Not only are we big fans of the band but we’re also very grateful that Ely Buendia is producing our first album.

The show started with Hey Johnny Wolf, which I didn’t get to watch because we were busy getting ready for our own set. But I just realized that their drummer, Charles Villanueva, is my dad’s bassist’s son! Sayang! I listened to their online tracks and they’re good ha!:)

MSD_0144Then it was our turn. We were very nervous since we’re not used to a seated audience. But I think we pulled it off anyway!

MSD_0252Manny a.k.a. Swag Dripper


Mau a.k.a. DeBross (I don’t know what it means either… Ask Jim)


Rivermaya was sitting in the front row!

MSD_0309The beautiful Una Buendia <3


My hyper love

MSD_0337 MSD_0340^ You can totally turn this into a meme of Jim playing billiards, sweeping the floor, etc.

After Cheats played, it was time to premiere the new music video for Out Of Control! It was amazing!! It looked like a post-apocalyptic movie trailer starring the boys of Pupil and model Ornussa Cadness!! Sad it’s not on YouTube yet but you can request for it on MYX by texting MYX REQUEST PUPIL – OUT OF CONTROL and send to 2366!

MSD_0355 MSD_0356 MSD_0378It was an awesome set, I was so happy they also played songs from their first album Beautiful Machines!!

MSD_0372 MSD_0403 MSD_0436 MSD_0456Congratulations once again to Pupil!! If kailangan niyo ng body double for Ornussa Cadness, nandito lang ako. … ISANG MALAKING CHAROT!!!!!!

Thanks to Martin San Diego for the photos!:)

    For a minute there I thought it was Marcus on guitars. Wishful thinking.
    May soundcloud ba ang Cheats? :)

    With the workout that you’ve been doing, I think you can give Ornussa a run for her money.
