Red Horse Beer 13th Muziklaban First Online Digital Press Launch

Late post is late.

I’ve experienced first hand Red Horse Beer’s 13th Muziklaban First Online Digital Press Launch. I got an online invite from Red Horse which contained a username and password to log in to the livecasting site. It.was.awesome! I may be sounding like a tech newbie, but that was seriously something else!

Red Horse Muziklaban has become quite an icon in the OPM scene ever since it’s birth in 1999. It has produced bands that went from obscurity to being OPM legends. Some of the more famous Muziklaban winners were Mayonnaise, Gayuma, Even, Light of Luna, and Hatankaru. On its 13th year, Red Horse is continuing the Muziklaban tradition of encouraging amateur bands to perform and promote their music. Not only does Pinoy Rock get new talent every year, it also gets new breeds of Pinoy Rock musicians.

During this year’s launch though, Red Horse Muziklaban showed that they’re not only going to introduce new bands and rock musicians, but that they are also going to do something new. This time, Muziklaban went live on the intarwebz. As the times change, I think it’s a good move by Red Horse to reach out more to the online community. They can reach more people and even Pinoy music lovers across the globe. It just shows that Muziklaban is ready to be an even bigger event every year. A bigger Muziklaban means a bigger and greater opportunity to promote Pinoy Rock.

So kudos to the first online digital press launch of Red Horse Beer’s 13th Muziklaban!
