SugarSmashGin: Back to the ’90s in One Night

After Sugar Ray’s performance, some of the audience already left. Can’t blame them though—it was a Monday night and people still have work early in the morning. The majority stayed, however. And the show went on. Gin Blossoms conquered the stage. Their performance was very sincere and I thought it was kind of adorable when Robin Wilson jumped a bit whenever they finished playing a song. They pulled off a really wonderful set, considering that they only arrived in Manila just a few minutes earlier the show.

They played their greatest hits, “‘Til I Hear It From You,” “Found Out About You,” “Follow You Down,” and of course, “Hey Jealousy.” They even dedicated one of their songs, “As Long As It Matters,” to the earthquake victims of Cebu. It was riveting. The entire set was, actually, and it was a very nice and super sweet way to end the night.

It’s really amazing that even if years, or decades, pass by, some music just stay forever in our hearts and the lyrics are already inked in our minds. This only goes to show how great music influences our lives and that we should always celebrate and relive the good ole times through concerts, such as SugarSmashGin.

Thank you, Random Minds Production, for having us, When in Manila, at your event. Everything went great so congratulations for putting up a good triple rock show in one night. Until next time!
