So a few days ago, we attended a brief shindig at The Outpost, Lahug, Cebu City featuring OPM Bands, Cuarenta, Junior Kilat, The Ambassadors, and one of my favourites, Franco (or just Franco Reyes this time). 😀
The place was packed so it was a good thing we got there early. The manager/event planner was gracious enough to grant us a table, although I did try to bribe him hoping that he’d get us good seats. Hey, I was desperate!
The front acts were, shall we say, just OKAY. Their own fans probably enjoyed their performances, but since I wasn’t a follower, my reaction was a mere “Meh!”. I drank a LOT of Tanduay Ice Alcomix though, which probably helped with all the boredom. No offense, non-Franco bands. 😀
When Franco FINALLY made his entrance, the crowd went wild. It’s obvious that this guy has a lot of charisma over an audience, especially the ladies. It doesn’t hurt that he has an awesome rocker voice and a laid-back Stacy Jaxx-esque body too. *swoon 😀
He sang Cast Away, This Gathering, Seasons, and Song for the Suspect, all personal favourites of mine. But just when we were about to leave (MY FRIENDS WERE SOOOOOO SLEEPY, I WASN’T!!!), he crooned Mass for the End of Time. Aaargh! I only got to the part “Watch out for the breaking hearts tonight…” Yep, seriously! I only heard the beginning! Aaaaargh! Until now I hold a grudge for not being able to hear the entire song LIVE!
But still, I saw my ex again! Wooohoo! Till next time, my lav! 😀
