Last October 11, 2014, Ω Ulzzang Pistol 얼짱 Ω transported us into a dream world of soft pastel hues through the endearing music he shared with all of us that night at Heima Brixton, Kapitolyo, Pasig City.
Ω Ulzzang Pistol 얼짱 Ω is the solo project of a creative soul named Zeon Gomez, who is also a member of Zoom Lens Label, co-founder of local collective YOUNGLIQUIDGANG, and the In-house Music Producer of Kawaii PH.
According to Zeon, his goal with his music is to unite Asia, in order to turn it into what he calls ‘One Asia.’ This is probably why you can hear touches of different influences in Asian culture in his music—from J-Pop, to K-Indie, to C-Pop, and many others of the like, all fused together into styles such as Dream Pop, House, and Lounge.
As he usually uses themes about love and everything in between in his music, the album girlfriend also comes with the same approach. I quote from the album launch organizer/s, “this project is about being in the state of love and everything in between, written in a foreign tongue, in a foreign moniker, I want to destroy the barriers that kept my soul from reaching yours.”
“GIRLFRIEND is an anthology of stories tackling the different kinds of love, from infatuation at first sight to the bitter heart break of star-crossed love.”
He also collaborates with other artists who share the same passion to further translate their own stories and sentiments into their music. In addition to that, guest artists such as After School Special, No Rome, COEXIST, and Similar Objects also performed during the event.
Apart from the music, the event also became more colorful through the theme of pastel colors, where guests were encouraged to come in outfits that complement the theme.

Not to mention, the theme also matched very well with the venue, Heima, which was filled with cute, dainty, and soft-hued interior design furniture, decors, and other curious finds.
Apart from the snacks and drinks, there was also an abundance of delicious sweet treats, such as gummy worms, marshmallows, and ice gems, all for the guests to feast on!
During Ω Ulzzang Pistol 얼짱 Ω ‘s set in the performance line-up, one of the Kawaii PH team members, Mica (AKA The Kawaii Ninja), also performed as a guest singer for some of Zeon’s songs. We are very proud of you, Mica! (~˘▾˘)~
As the performances continued, guests continued to enjoy the night away with the entrancing music performed by the talented line-up of artists.

Towards the end of the event, Zeon also started personally signing a couple of copies of the album. The album copies actually come with a free trademark Zeon-styled harajuku mask! They were all personally hand-made by Zeon himself, so no mask is the same as the other.
To cap it off, it was definitely a successful event! The event had a good crowd of attendees, delicious food, nice ambiance, and wonderful music. We’d like to congratulate Zeon for his album launch, and we hope all the best for him in his future projects! ＼（＾▽＾）／
