Lilystars Records is proud to bring Dragonfly Collector to a city nearest you!
Eight months after the digital release of his critically acclaimed debut album, The World is Your Oyster, Dragonfly Collector embarks on “The World is Your Oyster Philippine Tour 2015”, introducing a completely different approach to concert touring and musical promotion.
The tour is an independently produced backpack nationwide journey, which will be covered mostly by land and sea. This grand national odyssey kicks off in Meycauayan, Bulacan on August 11, 2015 and will run until early December. The 44 performance stops will cover key areas of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, and will wind down in Southern Luzon. In between stops, Dragonfly Collector will also help promote domestic tourism through side trips to various national parks, beaches, caves, heritage sites, and other destinations of interest.

Dragonfly Collector: The World Is Your Oyster Philippine Tour 2015 will primarily feature acoustic performances, but will be backed by Nitoy Adriano on guitars, Vengee Gatmaitan on bass, and Pat Sarabia on drums on select tour legs. Upcoming indie-folk singer, Ian Penn, will be opening all shows.
Dragonfly Collector is the solo debut of Clem Castro (aka Clementine), award-winning singer-songwriter, guitarist and frontman of the bands The Camerawalls and the now defunct Orange and Lemons.

Dragonfly Collector: The World Is Your Oyster Philippine Tour 2015 is brought to you by Lilystars Records and is sponsored in part by Gist.ph, Jam 88.3, Pinoytuner, Radio Republic, Panay News, and 57 Studios Manila.
The Camerawalls performs this April in five cities in the Visayas – one city for every year that the band has been making music.
Dubbed “Pamagdoy” (a word that means “wandering” or “peregrination” in both Cebuano and Ilongo), the tour is produced and presented by Lilystars Records in partnership with Panay News, the largest newspaper in the Visayas.
*Ad Concept and Design by Justine Basa
“This is a first for The Camerawalls to embark on a proper tour, so it can reach more listeners and meet more music aficionados,” said Clementine, frontman of The Camerawalls, and concurrent label manager of Lilystars Records.
The Camerawalls, being based in Bulacan, is a fixture in the Manila indie scene and has regular invitations to music festivals in the region – however, it is rare for the band to hold gigs in other parts of the country, the latest being Baguio City last March.
“Pamagdoy” is an opportunity to familiarize the Visayan market with The Camerawalls’ indie pop releases, Clementine noted, as their music may be available at their Web site thecamerawalls.com, but the live shows had mostly been up north.
On the side is the desire for a little travel and cultural experience – the food, practices, scenic spots, and the people – with each city transfer, and for the band to create a tour diary of the experience, admitted Clementine.
Aside from their original song releases, The Camerawalls will be performing select tunes written and recorded by Clementine for Orange & Lemons, plus cover songs from bands and artists (e.g. The Smiths, The Beatles, John Lennon) they admire, in the “reinventionist” style the band is known for.
Fans may hang out – and perhaps even get a chance to jam – with The Camerawalls on their Visayan Tour at the following venues:
