CONCERT WRAP-UP



WHAT A WEEKEND! LUMPIA PALOOZA 2 is finally in the books and
wow, what a show. This year's concert definitely was captivating with
probably the most heart-warming ending ever! In case you missed it,
here's your ultimate wrap-up with photos provided by Sthanlee B. Mirador:


A BIGGER EVENT IN A BIGGER VENUE!
This year's installment was again hosted by Roslynn of Third Floor
Radio. Beating last year's concert attendance, LUMPIA PALOOZA 2
in South San Francisco was bigger, not just in venue size but in the
amount of TALENT performing!


Local Bay Area artists FUSION, FATIMA, VERSE, KIM del FIERRO,
BAYSICK ENTERTAINMENT, beatbox champion LEEJAY, and
SoCal's NATIVE GUNS jumpstarted the FIRST HALF of the show.


American Idol finalist CAMILE VELASCO then headlined the event
alongside Chicago's rap trio THE PACIFICS, 6th DAY, and Southern
California's MANGO PIRATES.


FIL-AM BANDS REUNITED 2 STEALS THE SHOW!
Despite the great performances, it was this year's FIL-AM BANDS
REUNITED segment produced by the LUMPIA crew that stole not only
the show but every concertgoer's heart. After last year's failed attempt
to reunite BUFFY and the KANDEE GIRLZ, the LUMPIA crew finally
celebrated their FIRST EVER successful reunion at LUMPIA PALOOZA 2.
Video segments depicting the ambushes played throughout the night
before revealing the LIVE REUNION performance on stage. The auditorium
erupted in ecstacy as the reunited band performed the final show they
never had. So, who were they???


Unfortunately, only the concertgoers will know as we're going to have to
save this moment for the DVD release of LUMPIA PALOOZA 2 this
November. I know, we're such a tease....



WORLD PREMIERE of NEW MUSIC VIDEOS @ PALOOZA 2

THANK YOU!
All of us here want to thank the entire concert crew, who made LUMPIA
PALOOZA 2 one of the best productions we have ever put together as
a team. We also have to give it up to Drea and the Bands Reunited
crew for providing us honestly one of the most touching moments we've
ever witnessed. The concluding reunion and the raw emotion that came
out of that is something no one can create or plan. Thank you LeRoid
and Tower Records for providing the in-store and to RedFiveOnline for
providing the afterparty, and all the sponsors who believed in us. We
give props to the crew who worked on all our music videos in the Bay
Area and Chicago. Of course, we give it up for the LUMPIA PALOOZA
performers, some of which traveled from out of state to join us. AND
finally, we THANK everyone who actually came out and spent their
Saturday evening with us. These are the people that make all of this
volunteer work worthwhile. Our SPECIAL MVP award goes out to the
TWO concertgoers who FLEW all the way from TORONTO, CANADA
just to catch LUMPIA PALOOZA 2. Now THAT my friends is some
true LUMPIA love!!!!
