It wasn't an urban legend, she did perform in Boracay. I was just in the right place at the right time. When rumors started filtering through the vines, I was like, CMON. Santogold? As in SANTOGOLD? Oo nga. Sha nga. Heads up and confirmation from Elmer of Saga, and later from Direk Robby himself, four nights before she was due to perform. Freakin A!!!! And the rationalization behind the non-marketing of the whole event? Because, If I may quote Robby Carmona, or some pseudo version of what he said, "Just like in New York, you step into a club not knowing who will perform, only to find out that its some big name DJ, its not hyped, not advertised, you just happen to stumble into a cool party that incidentally happens to be THE party to be in. It's effortless. It's different." It's freakin fantastic!! Woop! Of course had to elbow my way in to get prime viewing area, just a spit and cartwheel away from her, front and center. Damn. She. Was. Awesome.
The playlist. Had to rotate that 180 degrees, it was taped to the floor.
I'm trying to guess who she's wearing. Cassette Playa? Carri Mundane?
Gold Reebok Freestyles. Drool.
The dancers were so 80's retro. Dance and outfit included.
Sleb spotting, DJ Spoonman with Victor Basa.
Okay, super fan moment, I went up on stage. Cmon, when will I ever share a platform with Santogold again? Like. Never? Deadmah, stage kung stage.
