Eastside’s May Playlist: A Tribute to Buboy

Eastside’s May Playlist: A Tribute to Buboy


May is here! April showers are over, and the last month of the school year is sure to be full of new adventures. For us here at The Monthly Ram, May is a particularly special time of year — a time for us to celebrate the solar return of our beloved co-founder Adriel Bolocon! 


Known by many as Eastside’s own friendly neighborhood Spiderman, Bolocon has served as a source of joy and friendship for countless of his fellow rams. 


One senior, Terry Ford, offers his insight into Bolocon’s attitude.


“One thing I love about Adriel is his charisma,” Ford explains. “He always seems to brighten a room when he walks in.”


Xavier Thomas, another friend and member of Bolocon’s art class, says “he’s unapologetically passionate about the things that he loves.”


One of Bolocon’s many aforementioned passions is music. Currently working under the artist name Buboy, Bolocon has published two singles on streaming platforms garnering hundreds of monthly listeners and over 30,000 streams. 

In honor of the musician, we asked students over the past few days, “What song reminds you of Adriel?” and the results are in! You can listen to them here:
