Concert on the Run...

Instead of getting through the details of how i got there and the zigzag and the crap, let me get straight to the point and tell you more about what happened and what we have observed during Chicane's concert...

Is it a gaypride event?

As we were going through our usual boyhunting sessions, we noticed that there were more gay-slash-bisexual-slash-discreet-slash-whatever-they-categorize-themselves people than straight ones. Although some guys have brought their girlfriends with them, more guys brought their "girl" friends with them. And even discreet ones never failed our gaydars. But hell, most of them are hot. 

Cigarettes were not sold inside.

Of all the things you should lose in a party, one would be cigarettes. And they are not sold inside the event. Maybe they are trying to avoid fire, perhaps? Or cigarette DUST! Duh!

John Boy's music played longer than the concert.

He started playing 10 pm up until Chicane started to perform. And that was around 12 or 1 am, the he continued playing after Chicane finished. And that's until... I dunno... we left early...

And this is the worst part...

The sound system... or BigFish? or perhaps WTC? or Chicane? (i doubt its Chicane's)... got busted! 

When they entered the stage, everybody was so excited. Everybody was yelling. When they started doing their thing, everybody was enjoying. Dancing with the beats. But after a couple of songs, the speakers hanging on both sides of the stage started sounding like it can't handle the loud sounds... more of like a busted-slash-defective-slash-overused-slash-cranky second hand set of speakers... and so they stopped. The party people started woo-ing... Not because of Chicane, but because of the damn speakers... So Chicane, went off the stage, the sound system was checked and all that...

A few minutes after, Chicane went back the stage. Started bringing the crowd back to the  level of energy when Chicane entered and started playing. When everybody thought that was just a minor technicality in their system... Whapak! It wasn't! It happened for the second time....

Darn...

At that point in time, Chicane's vocalist Justine Suissa said that it was their last song. The people were obviously disappointed. We were disappointed. I bet Chicane was disappointed as well. At the back of our minds, we knew that the concertn would have been longer if the speakers have been acting up the way it used to be. Coz I have been expecting a lot of songs to be played that wasn't.

And I personally blame BigFish for this. Darn. I hope that there's no deja vu on their Halloween Costume Party come this October..

We left minutes after Chicane went down from the stage.

BITIN!

Anyways, check out the pictures of the event here... (Thanks Z for the pics)

See you in Cream! 

******


And you know what their alibi (who's that guy along John Boy?) why the speakers went that way... DUST PARTICLES!!!
