A Movie Script Ending: Death Cab For Cutie Live In Manila 2012

February 29, my good friend Anoinette asked me to buy our tickets for Smash Project. So I met her at The Block that afternoon, bought our tickets at Ticketnet we had coffee and talked about all the bands that we love espescially those that are performing for Smash. We were so happy at the same time sad because, yes we can watch Smash but not Death Cab For Cutie. Anton and I are uber fans of the TV series, THE OC! We love Seth Cohen (Adam Brody) because he loves Summer Roberts (Rachel Bilson) and indie bands like Death Cab For Cutie. GET MY POINT?

March 1. Logged into my twitter and there I saw Hugenes, a friend is giving GOLD passes for DCFC concert. Hooray!!!!!!!!!! I tweeted him non-stop until he said yes, that he’ll give me a pass. So sorry, other followers of this guy. Haha.

March 2. Went all the way to Hugenes office after my dress fitting. Got my pass. What a happy kid. I even tweeted about it. And throughout the weekend, I’m just playing DCFC, The Cab, Cobra Starship, Dashboard Confessional and The Used songs. #HAPPYEARS.


March 5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CONCERT DAY. I shit bricks. I’ve been really waiting for DCFC to come here in Manila, and holy shit I am going to see them live, hear them live. During my ‘hard days’ or the so called healing days because my heart was broken, I just listen to them.


(Gold View, pretty good I may say)

My concert buddy that night is my Loveley. She’s the orignal fan of DCFC before me. Haha. Went inside NBC tent. Look for a good spot. Fixing and preparing my Sirius Black and her Lan (our bby cameras) ;)


(Me with my Gold pass)


(Why hello there, woman.)

Never The Strangers as Front act is pretty good. I did enjoy them. 

Then one by one, memebers of DCFC came in onstage. First is Ben Gibbard he said ‘Hello Manila’ then Chris Walla then Nick then Jason. They did the intro f A Lack Of Color cos it’s their first song. And the crowd went dancing and screaming. Then they sang I Will Possess Your Heart. The crowd was just cool singing he chorus. “You gotta spend some time, love. You spend some time with me” And when Crooked Teeth came in,  Loveley can’t hept but to fangirl.


(After this shot, Chris Walla with his Beret took a last lingering look at the crowd. oh god)

Fast forward. When they did a back to back of What Sarah Said and I Will Follow You Into The Dark performances, all the girls were just “aaaaaahhhh” then cried after. Yes, I was teary eyed. It’s like I hope someone out there is going to sing the latter song for me. </3


(Our faces after those sad songs. Haha)

I thought their last song is We Looked Like Giants wherein Ben banged the drums so hard that it’s like the last day of  those drums.. but crowd yelled we want more. I knew it in my heart they they’ll be back on stage and yes they went back performing  The Sound Of Settling and four more songs for the Encore. They had Translaticism as the closing song.


After the concert = RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD. DCFC is a 90’s band. The feeling that I watched their concert is like a precious one.


Loveley and I sawElay and interviewed us for Myx. Then I got free coke + baller. Went home happy and satisfied.

Just got home from Death Cab For Cutie Live In Manila concert @NBC Tent, Bgc.

DCFC just left me speechless. They played What Sarah Said and I will Follow You Into The Dark back to back that I almost cried.

I love you Ben Gibbard. Thank you God for all the blessings! (:
