Upcoming Events, July to September

Harry Potter and the Deathly HallowsHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows release. Just seven more days as of this posting! Wohoo! This is the first time I reserved a Harry Potter book, as I mentioned 160 days before this post (Wow it’s been that long since I posted that). I reserved my copy at NBS Bestsellers in Galleria (that new, Powerbooks-like National Bookstore subsidiary, top floor of Galleria), and I will pick that up together with my Laking National card and a paperback copy of The Fourth Bear by Jasper Fforde (I’m sure there’s a copy there).

I feel kind of sad that the entire series is ending by Saturday next week, but that’s the way it is. It’s the same way I felt when I read the last Animorphs book — everything must come to an end. So does this. I bet I’ll shed some tears with this. I may not be a complete Potterhead like the others, but I love this series, and finishing it off feels like saying goodbye to a friend. Sigh.

Oh yeah, I haven’t watched the movie yet. Oops!

Don Moen in ManilaDon Moen in Manila. I was looking at House of Praise when I saw the poster of Don Moen’s Manila tour. Yes, he’s coming here (again, I think). To those who don’t know who Don Moen is, he’s one of the pillars of worship music, with popular songs Give Thanks, God Will Make a Way and God is Good under his belt. His show dates are:

  • July 27, 2007 – The Pacific Grand Ballroom at Waterfront Cebu City Hotel, 8:00pm
  • July 28, 2007 – Araneta Coliseum, 4:00pm and 8:00pm
  • July 29, 2007 – Freedom Ring Ampitheater at Clark Expo, Pampanga, 5:00pm
  • July 31, 2007 – The Summit Center, Zamboanga City, 7:00pm

Tickets for this event are available at all SM Ticketnet outlets (911-5555). For more information, call Maximedia at 551-7777.


Switchfoot in Manila! After so many delays, Switchfoot is finally coming to Manila! If you’re a Switchfoot fan, you must not miss this! If you’re not, well, you shouldn’t miss this either since it’s a once in a lifetime event! They’ll be here on September 10, 2007, 7:30pm at the Cuneta Astrodome. Ticket prices are Php 1200, 1000, 800, 600, 400 and 250. More info on this in the coming days, but again I say, don’t miss this event! This concert is for the benefit of International Justice Mission. Oh, and one of their band members, Jerome Fontamillas is a Filipino, so this is a definite event to watch. :) I’m selling tickets, so if you’re interested, post a comment here, or email me with the subject, Switchfoot. You may also visit the Switchfoot in Manila blog -> switchfootmanila.blogspot.com.

There are also other events to watch out for, especially in September: Fall Out Boy and Elliott Yamin, I hear? I’m not a fan, but some of you might be, so go clicky. :)
