What’s happening in Manila this weekend? SPOT.ph zeroes in on the events and happenings you shouldn’t miss.
1. ROCK YOUR FRIDAY NIGHT C&C STYLE.
If you’re a fan or into progressive rock, then you wouldn’t want to miss Coheed and Cambria Live in Manila on July 30, Friday, 6 p.m. at the A. Venue Music Hall, Makati City. As if that’s not enough, Pinoy favorite bands Franco and Firefalldown will also be performing. Better brush up on your Coheed and Cambria fun facts.

2. TAKE A CRASH COURSE ON CALLAS-STYLE DIVA-NESS.
The Philippine Opera Company brings back the Tony Award-winning Terrence McNally-penned play, Master Class featuring veteran actress Cherie Gil as the legendary opera diva Maria Callas at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Makati City. Performances run from July 29 to 15, Thursdays to Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3:30 p.m. For more information, log on to TicketWorld.com.ph or call (02) 8919999.
3. BE BLOWN AWAY BY BARE ART.
View STEREO 2 by Juan Caguicla and Christina Dy at the Silverlens Gallery until July 31 and at the MANILART 10 Art Fair from July 30 to August 1. STEREO 2 is their follow up to last January’s STEREO 1 wherein the two artists used their bodies as the subjects to produce a new and grotesque image combining Caguicla’s photography and Dy’ s charcoal drawings. STEREO 2 showcases only one image that is meant to make an impact as the two artists go further with what they bare and where they connect.
4. CRUISE THE ONE WAY STREET TO K-POP VILLE.
