As Callalily welcomes 2018, the band held its first gig for the year which served as a special THREE-t (treat) to their supporters.
On Thursday, January 11 at Mow’s Bar in Quezon City, Callalily gathered with friends and fans, who they consider as family since they started 12 years ago, with an open jam.
However, the special treat did not just stay as simple as that but was served in three forms. One of which, the band — composed of Kean Cipriano on vocals/guitars, Lemuel Belaro on drums, and Aaron Ricafrente on bass — officially welcomed its new member/guitarist Ken Tiongson.
The band also launched the Callalily Entertainment, a management arm for new acts.
“Nagma-manage na kami ng mga artists/bands na talagang may potential,” said Callalily. “Let us support each other, all for OPM.”
Among the acts they currently handle are acoustic singer Anne Dimayuga and band Unify who all played as front acts during the event.
The biggest treat of the night was the release of the their newest single, “Litrato.” It was the song was written by Cipriano for his late father.
The band, which consider themselves as mainstream-indie, kicked off their set with a live performance of the song, almost an hour ahead of its digital release.
“Litrato,” as of this writing, can be downloaded from digital music stores and can be streamed on Spotify.
