Confession: I'm kind of vain about my penmanship. And this is a little messy but eh anyway. The last word in #9 is supposed to be 'starving.' (the line is from From Afar by Vance Joy)
I was given a free ticket to this international music festival last weekend, the first of its kind here in the Philippines, so it was an amazing amazing time (nothing beats live music with friends) though it was a shadily-organized event, but holy shit Red Hot Chili Peppers. They opened with Can't Stop and my friend carried me on his shoulders so I could have a good view to take a video and we were pretty near the stage and holy shit. Holy holy shit. Admittedly I am not the biggest fan--I'm not familiar with a lot of their music, pretty much everything I know is what's been shared with me by my brother and my friends who are huge fans, but what's undeniable is that they're fucking amazing and really until now I don't have the proper words. It was really something to see the friends who were with me, all but one of them diehard fans, all come alive and to be right in the middle of a crowd losing its mind. Sounds silly maybe but I felt like I was experiencing history being made. It was RHCP's first time in the Philippines haha and I hope they come back, I really really do.
The local bands that performed at the event are not to be overlooked. Itchyworms, Techy Romantics, Taken By Cars, Up Dharma Down, & Kjwan (ESPECIALLY those last two) all blew me away. Supporting the local music scene is really important to me and it was so exciting to see all these local musicians up on these huge stages with locals & foreigners alike watching and fucking kill it
with their performances.
Unfortunately I missed some performances I was looking forward to--those of She's Only Sixteen, Radioactive Sago Project & Spongecola, but I heard they did amazingly as well.
