The theme was Rakestra and one would actually wonder why they name it so. Actually, if you’d looked at the ticket you’d actually get a clue because though people primarily went there to see the exclusive 45-minute performance of Sandwich, other bands that were almost on par with said musicians played. Of course, the icing was the performance by Urbandub with the Philharminc Orchestra. Yeah, that’s right, a rock band and an orchestra playing together to produce a symphony that was, well, forgive the cliche, music to everyone’s ears last night. I am so glad that at the last minute I decided to go because all day long yesterday I was feeling particularly lazy.

Too bad none of us had a camera. My only regret! Damn!
