After almost a month of rest from watching gigs and extended hours of weekend workdays, last Friday night I rewarded myself a bottle of my favorite beer, a priceless time with my girlfriends and awesome sets of music from four bands namely Prank Sinatra, Peso Movement, Domino and Pupil at 70s Bistro.
We arrived at 70s Bistro late, where Prank Sinatra was already starting on their set list. There are two Sergios, Japs & Dok, who played with Iman Leonardo, it was my first time to watch and listen to Prank Sinatra and it was a loud but immensely good set list. Guitar parts were great and the song I remembered was “Sigaw.”
After seeing two Sergios then it’s time for younger Sergio to play with Peso Movement, which also includes Francis “Brew” Reyes.
Before going to the gig, I listened to Peso Movement’s songs on Japs’ Soundcloud and “Bawal Simangot” is an instant favorite. And the awesome set list continued with Peso Movement as well as the I-love-your-stripes thing, which started with Iman and added a bit on night’s entertainment. After some “interviews” by Iman and some more songs by Peso Movement, Domino with Lally Buendia, laid down their five-song set list.
A quite short set list but songs were great that included my favorite “Eight Days”, which will be included on her upcoming album that made me more eager to have a copy. For me, she is really like a singing Barbie doll.
Crowd that night was quite a steady one, enjoying each songs played by the bands.
After watching three gigs of Pupil, Friday night gig was the best so far where we just enjoy each song as well as the band’s energy. The last time I watched Pupil they performed Superproxy in a different way and I just enjoyed it, last Friday night I was able to take video of it - http://youtu.be/cCVsU-iRzPY. Pupil’s set list was an extended one since the crowd was asking for more and even let Jesse from “Lost in Translation” to jam with the band.
At the end, it was a great night for OPM and hoping there’ll be more chances for OPM bands to share their music. And also it was kind of “siblings” night with the Buendias and Sergios. It was a chilling loud night; chilling, with steady crowd enjoying each song and loud, with well-crafted songs by the band.
