Astig ‘yong opening ni Mike Shimamoto. Actually in-expect naming medyo sa bandang dulo siya pero… hindi eh. 😀 Ang galing ng ginawa niyang renditions ng Jason Mraz songs, gayundin ‘yong orihinal niyang Caroline. 🙂 Sana marinig natin ‘yon sa mainstream radio sometime soon. 🙂

 

Isa mga pinakana-enjoy kong pagtatanghal ‘yong sa Side A. Grabe ‘yong pakiramdam na, sa radyo mo lang sila naririnig dati, tapos ngayon nasa harapan mo mismo sila at sobrang galing. Hands down.

 

Masaya rin ‘yong performance nina Yumi & Thyro. Astig sobra, nagulat pa kami nang kaibigan ko n’ong malaman naming original ‘yong kinakanta nila. Looking forward to so much more awesomeness from these two. 🙂

 

 

Okay rin ‘yong performance ng Never the Strangers. Natuwa talaga kami na tumugtog sila ng karagdagang tatlong awit mula sa album bukod sa Bago Mahuli ang Lahat, Alive at Moving Closer. Medyo kakapanuod lang kasi namin sa kanila roughly 10 hours ago. 🙂

 

 

Sobrang galing din n’ong iba, gaya ng Dressed Up Days at Kaleidoscope Eyes. Nakatutuwa talaga kapag nakakapanuod ng mga bagong banda sa mga ganitong gigs. Una, napapalawak pa lalo ‘yong kaalaman ko (ahem, natin 🙂 )  sa napakalaking mundo ng OPM. Ikalawa, dumarami rin ang koleksiyon ng musikang maa-appreciate at mamahalin natin. Awesome di’ba. 😀

Tuwing makapupunta ako ng ganitong events, nae-excite ako para sa kinabukasan ng OPM. Nakikita ko kung gaano kakulay at kasaya ang daang naghihintay sa lokal na industriya ng musika. Looking forward to more awesomeness and genuine happiness only OPM can give to us Pinoys. Mabuhay ang OPM! 😀

Side A – Before I Let You Go

Sabi nga sa isang comment sa video, sadyang “timeless” ang bandang ito. Hindi ko inasahang mapapanuod ko sila ng live at grabe, ang galing lang talaga.

“That sun will turn to ice right before your eyes
In the circle of your arms I will watch as worlds collide
And I’ll breath the last breath I will ever know
Before I let you go…”
