Urbandub All Over

Kath was posting pictures of her, Yhel, and Faindy, thus the title. Only Tumblr people would get the title, so, yeah.
Anyway, last Friday, UST had a welcoming event for freshmen. Several bands were set to perform: Monalisa, Orange Cartel, Mithi, Auto Kalesa, Indaybote, Panorama, Myosis, and the main attraction, Urbandub.

To be honest, I didn’t expect to like the bands. To me, they were like tasteless appetizers the waiters serve for you to munch on before they serve main course. I am very happy to say that on this occasion, I was dead wrong. A lot of the bands that performed were really great.
Auto Kalesa’s original composition, “Oh No Oh My”, was really good. They said was a song for unrequited love, but that’s not why I liked it, in case you were about to make a bitchy comment.
In Myosis, a former blockmate of ours was the guitarist, so when we saw him onstage, we were yelling his name like fangirls.
I have to say, the vocalist of Myosis is really hot. Kinda chubby, but with a nice build. I saw Kuya Maxene at that moment, and she informed me that she was classmates with the vocalist. I asked her to set me up with him. (I was joking, okay! …or not.)
Mithi performed second to the last.  The singer was so sexy, and she had such a smooth, sultry voice. But after their performance, everyone was getting antsy for Urbandub.
I was standing next to Aya, a fellow Urbandub fangirl, so when Gabby Alipe stepped into view, we went nuts. Seriously. People kept looking at us because we kept yelling, “Gabby Alipe, I love you!”
We also yelled a song request: “Cebuana!”
Gab actually looked at us—yes, he looked at us with those gorgeous eyes—and said, “Cebuana?” And that was all it took me Aya and I to fall in love all over again.
Urbandub performed around six songs: Alert the Armory, First of Summer, Soul Searching, Gravity, A Call to Arms, and Guillotine.
I had to wait several hours, but it was so worth it just to see them again. I swear to god, I am going to the Sonic Boom anniversary gig.
