Concert Review: Thursday at A-Venue

Thursday’s gig last night at Makati was a blast. My ears are still ringing from the loud music. The opening bands were great but not all of them.

The concert was opened up by the loud screaming music of April Morning Skies. They totally rock. April Morning Skies is the next band to watch out for. Angulo came up next on stage and just stood there. Chicosci followed and they did their thing on stage. The last opening act was Typecast who gave all their best and they didn’t fail. Typecast is fucking great. Steve Badiola’s screams are rock solid.

Then the lights turned off. The crowd was screaming, getting excited on Thursday. First one who stepped up on stage was the bassist from Saves the Day who filled up for Tim Payne. Then came the other members. When Geoff Rickley came up, the crowd started to roar. The lights turned on and then Thursday began playing their first song whose title I forgot. The crowd went haywire. Every man for himself. The moshpit was chaotic. There were teenage girls in the moshpit. That was cool.

The rest of Thursday’s set was very good. The crowd stayed active all through out their set. They didn’t play “War All The Time” but they played “Cross Out The Eyes.”

After their set, I tried to look for the band to have my Thursday posters signed and autographed. I failed. But it’s ok, seeing them and hearing them is enough.

They’ll be in Camarines Sur tonight to play in the Kaogma festival. I hope the crowd there will be just as wild as the people at A-venue. But I 100 percent doubt it.

Today is Thursday

Actually, today is really Friday. But tonight at A-Venue, somewhere along Makati, a New Jersey based band named Thursday will create chaos. Thursday, one of my favorite post-hardcore bands, will be playing tonight… Oh my ice-breathing fucking god, It’s tonight! I can’t believe it. I waited my whole life for this.

So who among you real post-hardcore loving guys are gonna see the concert? This is your one and only chance. And if you are going there tonight, leave a message here. See you!
