We can’t go back again, but we can pretend for one more weekend!
It was Against the Current’s third time here in Manila for their In Our Bones album tour and, I can say, I really felt their performance “in my bones.” The show was incredible, high-spirited, and very hyped. From Chrissy’s insane vocals, Will’s funny jokes, and the whole crowd singing along.
Relive the night with this photo diary.
Filipino band Gracenote started the night out with their hit song, Taciturn.
They also did covers of Don’t Let Me Down by The Chainsmokers and, the song they got known for, Stevie B’s When I Dream About You.

Fans all hyped up for Against the Current after Gracenote’s set.
After a short break, the intro started playing, the crowd started cheering, and the band entered with a bang playing Runaway. Chrissy performed with such high-energy, dancing all over the stage.
Against the Current started out their set with Runaway and Forget Me Now, both coming from their new album, In Our Bones.
Will and Dan rocked it out on the drums and guitar.

Against The Current went on to play their hit songs from their Gravity EP, such as Talk and Paralyzed.
The band, being famous for their covers, played an acoustic cover of Justin Bieber’s Cold Water and Love Yourself. They also played In Our Bones right after.

After the band played Another You (Another Way), they left the stage. The crowd repeatedly chanted “ATC,” wanting more. The band came back and sang Dreaming Alone and Gravity for the encore.
Against the Current rocked out the concert venue and made us feel young and relentless. As a fan, it was amazing to see how far the band has come, from doing YouTube covers to having their own record album. It was also overwhelming to watch them up close and in person; it’s definitely something I won’t forget.
Big thanks to DMC Philippines and Phoenix Productions for making this event possible!
