Wanderlust Single + SEA Tour Launch Party

August 17, 2012

You didn’t expect The Camerawalls to go on tour with nary a goodbye or farewell party, did you?

Pinoys and Spanish host a despedida, the Germans pull off an abschiedsfete, but yes, before the band takes off to satiate their wanderlust, they’re kicking up some dust first — and everyone’s invited!

Pen & Ink Manila, in partnership with Lilystars Records and Requiem Rising Singapore, is staging “WanderLust: The Camerawalls Single + SEA Tour Launch Party,” on Monday, Aug. 20, at Quantum Cafe (Kamagong cor. Bagtikan Sts., Makati City).

The Camerawalls, reunited after the nameless habagat wreaked havoc in Manila (and took one member temporarily off the performance circuit), will be giving a preview of what their fans and newfound friends will soon experience on their Southeast Asian backpack tour — their own version of sturm und drang.

As an added treat, there will also be performances from Your Imaginary Friends and Finest Summer.

A limited edition of the “Wanderlust” single in CD format (bonus track included), a tangible memento of this new milestone of The Camerawalls, will be made available. Postcards will also be sold at the entrance.

An entrance fee of P200 already includes a free drink — something with which to toast the success of the tour and say a hearty bon voyage if so inclined.

The merry mayhem starts at 8 p.m. See you there!

Four Years of POP!

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.”

Founded in April 2008, Lilystars has, since then, signed various local indie acts, released a full-length album, several singles, EPs, videos, contributed to local & foreign compilation albums, and staged tribute nights and major gigs via its own production outfit, The POP Shoppe! Its present roster of artists include The Gentle Isolation, Your Imaginary Friends and banner artist, The Camerawalls.

Projects lined-up in 2012 include more single releases, tours locally and of Southeast Asia, as well as several collaborations with other like-minded artists and record labels abroad. All these are geared towards strengthening the presence of Lilystars’ artists and their music advocacy in the local & global independent music scene.

Lilystars’ 4th Anniversary Party by The POP Shoppe! At AMOS Cafe on April 13 will feature performances by the label’s roster of artists, Kate Torralba and the Flippin’ Soul Stompers.
