MANILA — It was hard to get a seat. Through Saturday’s crazy traffic, patrons had to come early, else pass the night — indeed historic in the local music scene — standing. More than an hour before the show, Conspiracy Garden Cafe, Quezon City’s haven for folk and alternative music, was packed, seats spilling into walkways, tables abuzz with chatter and chow, beer buckets already halfway done. And the audience, among whom had waited decades for such a night, did not mind the stuffy November air.

It was, in fact, the political climate that had brought … [Read more...] about ‘Call of the times’: Buklod reunites, releases new album
