8. The rockers2x \m/
For some reason, the rockers2x in Cebu don’t live the sex, drugs and rock and roll lifestyle. Sadly, if you’re a rocker you have to suffer the stereotype of no-good, out of school drug addict with no future. Which is not the case because most band guys in Cebu actually have successful careers and work in regular jobs. In fact, rockers2x guys are actually boring, too busy making music.
This guy spends more time with his barkada drinking Tanduay and Red Horse while debating over the latest Deftones’ album than with his girlfriend. In fact, the girlfriend becomes a part of the barkada, sitting off to the side talking to other ‘indays’ over how immature their guys are and how slutty that younger, sexy groupie is.
When not at work, the rest of his time is spent jamming. Even if there’s no concert in the next week or so, the rocker guy always spends time with the band talking about what shirt he should wear to the next gig. His idea of a night out is going to The Outpost or Koa Tree House.
Of course, these banda2x guys should not be confused with the friends who drink all the band’s free beer, are present at every gig and even look like a part of the band but don’t know how to play a single instrument. Since the band members already have long-time girlfriends since high school, it’s usually the friends who have dibs on the groupies.
