It was surely an afternoon delight as Callalily held their first ever "Kiddie Gig" at the 70s Bistro Saturday. Callalistas from all ages had the rare opportunity to watch their idols play a bar gig scheduled before sunset.
"Ginawa namin 'to dahil marami I'm sure na mga fans na hindi sila pinapayagan 'pag gabi, may mga pasok 'pag gabi, may pasok kinabukasan o malayo 'yung lugar nila," said Kean Cipriano in our MYXPH exclusive interview.
"Naisip namin na 'Mag-gig kaya tayo ng hapon. Mag-gig kayo tayo na makakapunta 'yung mga kids!' 'Yung mga fans namin , may mga kapatid silang bata," added the Callalily frontman.
Just like any other children's party, kids were running around, balloons were everywhere, spaghetti and fruit juice was served and the fans were given loot bags filled with assorted candies. But instead of nursery rhymes and mascots, live performances by Banda ni Kleggy, Ney and Callalily were witnessed by the very appreciative crowd.
"Ang saya nun 'yung Mommy tsaka 'yung anak pumupunta sa mga gig namin na hindi naman siya normal na nangyayari sa mga usual live shows namin," Kean excitingly shared.
There was also an exclusive screening of the music video for the single "Darating"
. This is a collaboration between Kleggy Abaya, Ney Dimaculangan and Flip Top rapper Dello. It is also Kean Cipriano's initial venture into music video directing.
"First time na mapapanood ng maraming tao 'yung music video na "Darating". Excited ako na kinakabahan kasi unang directorial project ko to eh. Kaya masaya lang," said the first-time Director.
