Lilystars Records marks the 4th year of its creation and advocacy of fine indie pop music with an anniversary party on April 13, Friday, at AMOS Cafe in Quezon City. Asked about his thoughts on the label's 4 years, label manager and The Camerawalls frontman, Clementine, said, "I can remember Johan Angergard* (Labrador, Club 8, Acid House Kings) telling me it takes around four years for an indie label to really make anything. I'm looking forward to that."
Be there in your full concert-party gear to witness the reunion of one of the pioneers and loyal vanguards of Philippine New Wave and Alternative Rock music.
In support for the growing pop scene in the country, Lilystars Records contributed tracks from The Camerawalls, The Gentle Isolation and Your Imaginary Friends to be included in a free download compilation album featuring Filipino indiepop bands old and new.
