Mark this date for Ely

I'll forgive Spongecola for participating in this one. So for Eraserheads fans out there (like me and Francis whose nicely written article about Ely Buendia was posted here recently), here's a chance to help Ely.

Benefit gig for Ely Buendia

More than 20 artists and bands will do a fund-raising concert for singer-composer Ely Buendia, who had undergone two angioplasty operations after having a heart attack.

The concert is scheduled for Sunday, January 28, at the Eastwood Central Plaza, Eastwood City in Libis, Quezon City.

More musicians had volunteered to perform for free, but the organizers had to turn them down because of the limited time allotted them for the use of the venue, which they also get for free.

So from the original plan of starting the concert at 4 p.m., organizers decided to start earlier at 2 p.m. to accommodate all the bands.

Among the performers are Sponge Cola, Parokya ni Edgar, Kamikazee, Rivermaya, Itchyworms, Chicosci, UpDharmaDown, True Faith, Greyhoundz, Cynthia Alexander, Dicta License, Join the Club, Moonstar 88, Ciudad, Paramita, Makatha, Salindiwa, Swissy, Julianne, and Teeth.

With a combination of popular acts like Parokya ni Edgar, Kamikazee, and Rivermaya and talented performers like Cynthia Alexander and highly praised groups like Makatha, I hope this one's going to be a great hit. For Ely!
