Let me tell you about Kalayo, the band formerly known as Pinikpikan. This is the hardest working band in the Philippines. They have been around for a looooooong time. I use to hear about them back in college. Anyway, they appeal to a certain backpacker set, those of you who like drums and world music. But I believe they have transcended that. And besides they’re the sweetest people you can know.
The best place to catch Kalayo is at their original haunt, Bar@1951, formerly known as Penguin Café and Bar or something like that. To get there, go to 1951 Adriatico Street in Malate. It’s near Union Bank. Just ask around.
You can also go to Saguijo in Makati. From the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) formerly known as the South Superhighway, turn left and go down Gil Puyat formerly known as Buendia. Turn left at Chino Roces, formerly known as Pasong Tamo. Turn right at Bagtikan. Turn left at Guijo St.
Or you can catch them at the newly-remodeled 70’s Bistro. Go down Edsa from Makati towards Quezon City. Take a right at Kamias. Take a right at Anonas. 70’s Bistro will be on your left.
Or just let me direct you to Kalayo’s Facebook site. Atak!
