EVER BEEN told by a pal about how all you need to have a good time is to grab some friends and lis­ten to some good mu­sic? Well, that’s ex­actly what we did for our third birth­day party. We hit up all our friends—all 3,000 of them—and asked them to dress up in their best 0s ali getups for the Scout Mu­sic Fest hosted by am las and Renzo Mag­naye at Sam­sung Hall in SM ura Premier. Be­cause if you’re go­ing to throw a party, you might as well do it right. nd by right we mean the right venue, the right set of friends, the right kind of en­ter­tain­ment, and of course the right amount of booze, which is lots and lots of it.

We opened our doors at 4 p.m. sharp, and our friends trick­led in one by one, pass­ing by the booth of our lat­est Scout x Proudrace col­lec­tion, “Pop!”, be­fore en­ter­ing into the neon pink lit walk­way of hang­ing rain­bow Slinkies that led to the stage where sur­prise act Yung Si­mon opened with his slick raps, fol­lowed by a re­lax­ing DJ set by up­com­ing beat­maker Leone.

She’s Only Six­teen rocked it out on stage be­fore Tan­dems 91, utotelic, and Tom’s Story got their turn. By then, every­one we knew was al­ready there, in­clud­ing Scout faves L guinaldo, ryanna Ep­per­son, and halil Ramos.

Propped up on the side for those who wanted to chill out were party es­sen­tials like foos­ball and air hockey ta­bles, pizza, cases of beer, and our groovy palm tree back-dropped check­ered- oor photo booth where you could take your OOTD and win a piece from “Pop!”

We hit a mi­nor hic­cup when the mics stopped work­ing in the mid­dle of Oh, Flamingo’s set, but they did what they do best and rolled with the punches by danc­ing to their own im­promptu in­stru­men­tal be­fore pass­ing the oor to -Team. From there, the party just kept go­ing.

IV of Spades, Farewell Fair Weather, BP Valenzuela, Rjay Ty, and Jess Con­nelly x Lust­bass, and Jensen and the Flips all killed it. nd we know be­cause the crowd was wild af. t one point, a mosh­pit even broke out when Rjay brought out Bawal Clan, not to for­get Reese Lansan­gan’s special ap­pear­ance with Jensen. Our third birth­day party is de nitely that one party we’ll all still be talk­ing about un­til next sum­mer.
