On Watching Ely Buendia On Stage

On Watching Ely Buendia on Stage One of the best highlights of my 2017 was that I got to watch Ely Buendia play Eraserheads hits onstage. It was probably the first time where I really jammed hard. He was the lead singer of Eraserheads, one of the bands that I listen to regularly. One of…
