OPM IS NOT DEAD
During the lockdowns, I listened to different podcasts that guests OPM artists/bands. The band members share their stories of how they got started and how they are now. Listening to those interviews reminded me of the times I’ve watched OPM bands perform live when I was in High School and College. I told myself that I will watch them again once the pandemic is done.
It’s been a long time since I’ve entered bars. I always see Social House from YouTube videos whenever I watch their pre-pandemic gigs. That’s where I got the idea of visiting Social House someday and to my surprise, one of my favorite bands, Sandwich, will perform there this May. So I reserved a ticket and went to the live gig.
ROCKING AT SOCIAL HOUSE
Social House is a bar and resto located at Circuit Makati in Makati City. The prices can be expensive but the food and the ambiance are great. It has 2 floors, a stage, and a bar. We bought tickets but did not take table reservations anymore since we were already full and we avoided drinking too much. We stood at the back of the area, luckily, we still had a good view of the stage. Watching OPM bands always feels fun. We got to bob our heads tirelessly and sing along with songs that reminded us of our teen years.
Social House does not just invite known bands, but also incoming artists/bands and they also conduct different events where we will surely be entertained and remind us that life is good despite the challenges we faced in the last pandemic. Cheers!
