I cannot recall including concert production on a large scale as part of our plan of activities. Lilystars as I heard [...]
What began as a joke one most likely drunken night while hanging out at Lilystars’ headquarters in Cubao finally found its way to Route 196 last January 30. My memory isn’t serving me as well as I had hoped it would as I begin to write this, but I do remember several occasions where us [...]
