A truckload of 90s kids showed up to watch the three reunion gigs of 90s faves Moonpools and Caterpillars: April 8 and April 11 in Amber, The Fort, and April 9 in The Outpost in Cebu City.

Fans were either teary-eyed or in a “I-can't -believe-they're-here!” state, and those fans included opening acts (April 8) Moonstar 88, We Are Imaginary (formerly known as Your Imaginary Friends), and The Pin-ups.
