The Loudmouth Collective celebrates 2nd Anniversary


Cam (1)

Time to mix things up a bit.

If the mirror has two faces, then this girl has three sides. Kicking off the first of our featured Loudmouth poets, it’s Camcas “Camcats” (we’ve been trying to make that happen; maybe this is the year it does) Cervantes, LMC’s certified triple-threat. She sings. She draws. She does spoken word. The jury is out if she dances too, but if she did, then life really wouldn’t be fair.

Catch her and her compelling verses LIVE at Louder! 2: The Loudmouth Anniversary Show on June 24, 7PM at Exile on Main St., Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City. Free admission! There will be an open mic after our awesome program so don’t miss it.

Leandro (1)

If poetry is painting with words, then this guy’s fingers are eternally stained with pigment. Loudmouth’s unassuming maestro, Leandro’s poems convey the explosion of color that is the human experience; to listen is to understand that sometimes the ear can see.

Jerome (1)

Jerome frequently introduces himself as “a doctor, but not the kind that helps sick people.” We beg to disagree: his gift for empathy makes for art that does nothing short of heal. When Loudmouth’s giant speaks (or sings!) his verses, we listen.

Mark (2)

Somewhere between nerdville and nirvana lies Mark Dimaisip and his odd verses—using cats to discuss the urgency of living, maths to measure happiness and atoms to prove that reincarnation exists.

With subjects like anatomy, statistics, and quantum physics as backdrops for self discovery and introspection, Mark’s pieces have been described as “desire wrapped in logic”, “calmly enlightening”, and a “$100-per-hour shrink.”

Chesca (1)

As a debater, Chesca Hurtado understands that words pack a punch, but when it comes to verses, it is not her arguments, but her power to render things sacred that pulls an audience in. Her poems build into elemental drumbeats that’ll call anyone who listens to arms.

Ready to have the fighting spirit put in you? Catch Chesca LIVE at Louder! 2: The Loudmouth Anniversary Show on June 24, 7PM at Exile on Main St., Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City. Free admission! There will be an open mic after our awesome program so don’t miss it.

Frankie (1)

What do you get when you mix a cactus, a firecracker, and a cat, give it singer-songwriter aspirations, then wrap it all up in a k-beauty package?

…We’re not sure either, but we’re fairly certain that’s what we’ve got here.
Co-founder of the Loudmouth Collective, Frankie Torres has a brand (of intense) all her own. Constantly crackling with restless (and occasionally reckless) energy, she lights up the stage with her powerful vocals, musical and poetic. Determined to share the trials and tribulations of a girl-on-fire, she brings a show likely to entertain and connect with audiences.

Confused? Frightened? Intrigued? Catch her LIVE at Louder! 2: The Loudmouth Anniversary Show on June 24, 7PM (that’s TOMORROW!!) at Exile on Main St., Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City. Free admission! There will be an open mic after our awesome program so don’t miss it.

John (1)

Last but not the least…here comes The General!

We’re not quite sure how he got the nickname (various sources cite different reasons), but there’s no denying that Loudmouth’s president and founder (and, occasionally, father) has the sort of swift-as-a-coursing-river, strength-of-a-great-typhoon presence that makes you stand (or sit up) a little straighter, either to listen or to salute.

A force to be reckoned with, John Ilagan isn’t outwardly theatrical in life, but the prudence and restraint he demonstrates as LMC’s strategic leader are matched by his poetic fire when he takes the stage, commanding attention with passionate verses whose beating heart is a rap-like undercurrent that pushes you forward.

Sound intimidating? We swear he isn’t when you get to know him. Do just that by catching him LIVE at Louder! 2: The Loudmouth Anniversary Show on June 24, 7PM (that’s TOMORROW!!) at Exile on Main St., Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City. Free admission! There will be an open mic after our awesome program so don’t miss it.
