It was ages ago since I went to Mayrics to watch a gig. Last evening, I was able to catch a P4S gig where the core bands are Imago and Sandwich. Both bands share the same bassist. The first band (I forgot the name) has a long set indeed since long gaps in gigs would be unfavorable. The next band was Imago which arrived a little late for they also played at the album launch of Typecast at Freedom Bar. In that gig, I’ve just learned that the Untitled song has already a title and that is “Bangkang Papel” which is a metaphor that describes what the song is about. After Imago was the Brass Munkeys, and they play jazz. Their Brasswind section is composed of four namely, the alto saxophone, saxophone, trumpet, and trombone (not so sure if this last one is correct). Also, their bassist plays an acoustic bass and that is the biggest instrument that I have seen in a gig. They covered a Metallica song which amused me because I never thought that they would make a jazz version of it. The next band was Boldstar and Marie Jamora’s (their drummer) back. It’s a good thing she’s back here because I already missed listening to “Accident Prone” live. They also played a new song which is relatively different from the other songs since their songs are happy-sounding. The last band was Sandwich and Marc Abaya was also playing the guitar. The last time that I watched Sandwich is that Marc was not playing the guitar. The finale of their act was a long medley where one of the songs included in the medley is the anthemic Butterfly Carnival.
The gig was surely a blast. What made it more special is that I was able to meet new friends there.
