A Night Out with the Wolf Pack: Tukso ng Lobo Recap

It was an eventful night last November 26 where Lobo Filipino Tavern at Poblacion, Makati came alive with live art, live performances and live poetry for Tukso ng Lobo. In the mix was Disteleria Limtuaco’s very own labels of local liquor in a unique array of cocktails inspired for the event.

Legit blues one-man-band and busker, Hoochie Coochie Mikkie riled up the crowd despite an acoustic set and set the energy levels at an all time high. We used to watch this passionate guy busk his heart out at BGC High Street.

Throughout the show, street artists, NAK$ and We Will Doodle, created a breathtaking mural designed on the spot and exclusively for Lobo’s Filipino theme. Wolves upon wolves appeared in a visual illusion made by the two artists – and all finished by midnight.

Comedians from Comedy Manila and essayist/poet Hannah Puyat delivered performances that made the crowd pause and think while settling the audience for the final performance by JM Quiblat who live looped and even gave way to the dynamic free jam that fanned out quickly after.

All in all, with overflowing booze, a homage to local art forms, and a space that encourages creativity in its rawest form, Tukso ng Lobo will not be the last of its kind in the area.
