ADMIT ONE is a monthly production composed of four
acclaimed bands in the local rock scene, namely Cambio, Sugar Free,
Happy Meals, and Twisted Halo. The production began as a joint project
of three bands (Twisted Halo, Dicta License, and Fatal Posporos) in an
effort to hold a monthly event wherein to showcase their own music and
expose the talents of other, mostly fledgling, musical artists. After
much preparation, the first Admit One gig was held on November 9,
2001, in Freedom Bar on Anonas Street in Quezon City. Since then,
Admit One’s core lineup of regular bands has changed, and our group
has been organizing and holding shows every first Saturday of the
month in Freedom Bar, and has held shows in other venues as well,
including Mayrics in Espańa, Rock Radio Café in Alabang, and SaGuijo
Café in Makati.
As Admit One also aims to promote local talent, we also invite
different guest bands and artists to play and party with us. Thus,
Admit One has likewise become a vehicle for such lesser-known and/or
then-fledgling artists as Matilda, Einstein Chakkras, and many others,
to perform live. Some of these guest bands have hailed from as far as
Baguio (Blazing Bulalakaws), Cebu (Urbandub, Cattski), and Cagayan de
Oro (Nuncyspungen), and they have successfully expanded their
respective audiences here in Manila with the help of Admit One.
As we approach our third anniversary in November of this year, Admit
One has given almost a hundred local bands and artists, both signed
and unsigned, an opportunity to showcase their talents to a dynamic
crowd of young music enthusiasts, many of whom loyally attend the
monthly show regardless of its lineup. Since November 2001, Admit One
has featured live performances from a variety of musical genres,
including rock (Sandwich, Imago, Chicosci, The Dawn, etc.), hip-hop
(Sun Valley Crew, Syke), electronica (Wolfmann, Drip), jazz (Fish
Trio, Jazz Kidding), swing (Camote Chunks), tribal percussion (Hairy
Dawgs), and on one occasion, even a college dance group (Company of
Ateneo Dancers). Despite the large number of bands and artists we have
already featured over the past three years, our group continues to
receive inquiries and demo CDs from young bands who wish to be
included in upcoming Admit One gigs.
Over the years, Admit One has built a reputation for itself, not only
for being a cool event to watch live music, but also a preferred venue
to hang out, drink, party, and be among friends. There are people who
regularly look forward to and attend Admit One, regardless of the
bands playing. For that reason, setting and maintaining a party
atmosphere at every show is always a key objective of the organizers.
As Admit One moves on to its fourth year, we intend to take our show
to other venues both within and outside of Metro Manila, including
campuses, and key cities like Cebu, Davao, Baguio, Iloilo, Cagayan de
Oro, and more. After three years, Admit One is only getting started.
And we can be assured of its longevity for as long as the local music
scene continues to be sustained and propagated by both new and
