AFTER eight weeks of online concerts, Smart Music Live is ending its series with a mini Eraserheads reunion featuring Buddy Zabala and Raymund Marasigan on May 11, 5 p.m., at the Smart Communication Facebook page.

The online concert series started in March to entertain the public and to raise funds for COVID-19 frontliners. The show has so far featured Original Pilipino Music (OPM) artists like 6Cyclemind, Imago, Moonstar88, Pedicab, Gracenote, and Banda ni Kleggy.

On Wednesday, the show will feature Mr. Marasigan in the Soup of the Week podcast at 10 a.m. while Eunice Jorge of Gracenote will be hosting the Piano Show on Thursday, 10 p.m.

Buddy Zabala and Raymund Marasigan were both part of the Filipino rock band Eraserheads, best known for songs such as “Ang Huling El Bimbo” and “Pare Ko.” After the band’s disbandment in 2002, Mr. Zabala became the bassist for the bands Moonstar88 and Hilera while Mr. Marasigan became the frontman of Sandwich and keyboardist of Pedicab.
