Music, Collectors’ Items at Ali Mall’s ALI X Launch

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Rising OPM acts helped usher in a new dawn at the historic Ali Mall as it launched a newly transformed wing called the ALI X on Friday, March 22.
ALI X, which stands for Arts, Lifestyle, and Interests, is a shopping haven for those on the lookout for unique and quirky items and special hobbies. It is located on the upper ground floor of the Ali Mall.

Pop group The Juans and electro-pop-rock band Gracenote entertained shoppers on March 22.

The Juans, which is dubbed as “not your typical boyband,” is composed of Carl Guevarra, Japs Mendoza, Jiad Arroyo, Jason de Mesa and Daniel Gorospe. They shot to popular media consciousness thanks to their hits “Istorya,” “Prom,” and “Lumalapit,” and their cover of the Rivermaya original “Balisong.” Gracenote, on the other hand, is composed of Eunice Jorge, Jazz Jorge, EJ Pichay and Tatsi Jamnague. They scored hits with their cover of the Stevie B original “When I Dream About You,” and their collaborations with Chito Miranda in “Bakit Ganyan Ka,” and with Kean Cipriano in “Pwede Ako.”

Singer-songwriter Sabu, meanwhile, provided the music on Saturday, March 23, while rapper Krazy Kyle will drop beats on March 30 and 31.

Arts and crafts, antique, vinyl and collectibles stores dominated the lineup of establishments in ALI X, which also features ukulele and karate supplies stores.

The launch of ALI X also coincided with the first-ever RetroCon (retro convention) in Araneta Center. Organized by the same team behind the History Con, RetroCon which runs from March 22 to 24 and March 30 to 31, will feature vintage toys, collectibles, vinyls, cassette tapes, furniture, paintings and more.

Since it opened its doors to the public last September, ALI X has attracted mall visitors with its Instagram-worthy new décor and quirky offerings. It has also hosted an antique auction, a vinyl sale and a ukulele festival. It is one of the newest offerings in Ali Mall, which is eked out in Philippine history books as the first major shopping mall in the country.
