one fo r the books
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.
