Scenes From Throw's Second Album Launch


This happens to be the title of Throw's second album which was launched last July 12, 2008 at Center For Arts. And what a launch it was! It was an event meant to make everyone ecstatic. Amazing bands. Accessible location. Awesome sound system. A highly receptive crowd. Assorted merch for sale. Most of all, there was Al Dimalanta, who happens to be (as if you do not know by now) Throw's founder/vocalist/guitarist.

Time and again I would find myself raving about the works of this very talented man: his music, his photography, his writings. And the second album is testament to the fact that maturity has not slowed him a bit, and definitely, his well of creativity is full and far from drying up.

The bands:

The GoSignals played first, performing tight covers of The Who and The Jam, plus Private Stock's Future Generation. Mod galore!
Choke Cocoi came next. The first word that entered my mind: earnest. These ladies mean business.

The Beauty of Doubt finally resumes gigging. This band has been missed. Good to see them live once again.

Ronald and Albert of The Beauty Of Doubt: amusement written all over their faces.

Arnold Morales of Music Front hollered "This is the news of the world!" Apt, indeed.

Tame The Tikbalang actually played after Throw. Consistently fierce. The best part of their set? ANGST!Throw played a fantastic set of all-new songs. What can I say?
The crowd:To Spyk, Albert, Dennis and Al, congratulations!
