MANILA - YouTube sensations Alex Goot and Against the Current are in town to hold a show as part of their first Australia-Asia tour.

They will perform on August 30 at the Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo Theater of the Cultural Center of the Philippines, with tickets available at TicketWorld (891-9999).

In an interview on "[email protected]" on Friday, Goot said he never thought that he would have the opportunity to perform in the Philippines.

"I never thought I'd be in the Philippines, ever," said Goot, a New York-based singer-songwriter who has nearly 2 million subscribers on YouTube, with his videos getting a total of over 305 million views.

For her part, Against the Current vocalist Christina Costanza said she and her band are happy when people appreciate their music, particularly their original songs.

Other members of Against the Current include Daniel Gow (guitar and vocals), William Ferri (drums) and Joe Simmons (bass).
