When Team Manila said "launch," they meant it. Last May 7 amidst a sudden downpour, they launched not only their newest camera, the Lomo Lubitel 166+, but also their third batch of Daily Grind shirts and Sandwich's new music video Manila.
Lomo lovers showed off their Lubitel-created photographs in an "Asian Faces" gallery. On the wall next to it were shown the Daily Grind 3 shirts inspired by Sandwich and other artists performing that night. Next to be launched was the Lubitel in all its glass-encased glory. Finally, bands like Sandwich, Pedicab, Gaijin, Corporate Lo.Fi, Slapshock, Taken By Cars, The Diegos and Bryan Kong performed. A Thursday night couldn't get any better than that.
