Calling All Angels, Part 3: Entrance With Donation

Before I get back on the horn about Ondoy/Ketsana again, I just want to mention that we, too, have not forgotten the other Ketsana victims in Vietnam, and the survivors of the recent tsunami in American Samoa. The same Red Cross links from the last entry (except for the Philippine Red Cross) can also be used to give aid for Vietnam and Samoa, so please feel free to contact them if you would like to contribute.

This entry is dedicated to those who are holding concerts and other creative benefits for victims of the recent storm in the Philippines. Like yesterday's entry, this will be updated for as long as we can get more news updates regarding these events; if you want to add your event to this list, leave a comment or click on "Email The Author" at the bottom of this page. Maraming salamat po!

  • Quezon City, Philippines: More information on the (ongoing as of this writing) Driven For Life concert at Route 196 in Quezon City can be found in this entry from the Lilystars Records blog page. Bring your donations to the gig if you can; the PhP100 cover charge will also go towards fundraising for the victims of Ondoy. Plus: The Camerawalls! And the foxy Sarah Gaugler!
  • Pasig City, Philippines: The Fully Booked fansite on Facebook has posted a poster for Raise the Roof - A Benefit Concert: For the Victims of Typhoon Ondoy, scheduled for October 21 at the Megatent. Event begins at 2:00 PM and continues all day and night. Scheduled to play: Tropical Depression (yay!), Taken By Cars (holla!), Pedicab (eeeee!), and Imago (EEEEEEE!!)
  • Quezon City, Philippines: If your taste in music does not run towards indie OPM rock, take note: Ricky Lo reports that Air Supply will donate proceeds from their October 3 concert at the Araneta Coliseum to typhoon victims.
  • Metro Manila, Philippines (UPDATED 10/03/2009): By now you may have seen the ads for the Katy Perry concert, originally scheduled for today at SM Mall of Asia, being postponed to "a later date," and not October 16 as previously reported. Tim Yap now reports that KP's concert is now being planned as a fundraiser for the Red Cross, and that David Archuleta will be part of the concert as well. (Source: Philippine Star)
  • Taguig, Manila, Philippines: Also from Tim Yap, a fundraising concert titled Hoy, Hoy Ondoy! has been scheduled for October 7, 8:00 pm at the NBC Tent in Fort Bonifacio. The Camerawalls and Imago are among the bands scheduled to play, along with Hale, Sponge Cola, Hilera, and others. (Source: Philippine Star)
(Aside: Is it me, or is Mr. Eventologist becoming a much better writer these days? I mean, I used to think that Tim Yap was an elitist snob - and there might be some times when I'm right on that - but I'm getting addicted to his Saturday columns now. I also think that getting a Twitter account has been very, very good for him. Cool.)
