Happy Birthday Built by Sonic

A small shop with a BIG sound ~ Built by Sonic is a retail store carrying selective lifestyle and rock music/band apparel from both the local and international scene. They carry Nick Automatic and Gnarly to name a few (well that's just two, so a couple). They're celebrating their 2nd year and what better way to do it than a free gig!

Okay, I went to this gig because first, I wanted to avail the discounts in getting tshirts (I ended up not buying anything, didn't even enter the store); second I wanted to see December Avenue play live again, it's been awhile; third I wanted to ambush Nicolo Nimor and get a photo with him, also to see his other band Sirens play live for the first time. But mostly cause I was desperate to go out! With what happened w/ mom, I had some lakwatsas cancelled, so even if I only had 1 day off because of the schedule transition, I really had to be here. I even considered going there alone.

But yeah, I didn't even enter the store, there were so much people and I'm thinkin' nah,, I'm not even sure if I'll find something that I would really really like to buy so I decided to stay away from the crowd coming in and out of the store. I've been in the store before, they do have good stuff, but I am so broke right now, I must only buy something that I have to really buy. 
I saw one of my favorite local bands December Avenue, took a picture w/ them, chat a bit but I went home right before their set started! Lovely right?! So here's my explanatory letter:
This gig happened in Eastwood which is in Cubao, and it's already 10 in the evening, I don't have a car and I live in Cavite. I have shift at 0600 the following morning and I haven't had any real sleep in days. I was really trying to convince myself that I'm only doing this just this once, that I can bear working the following morning w/only a couple of hours sleep, that I forgot to consider that commute home is difficult at this hour and there are no cabs in the province of Cavite! (well technically I can get one from Alabang, but the fare would be ridiculous)
One thing I accomplished I guess was getting a picure w/ Nicolo Nimor ~ the man behind NICK AUTOMATIC. I hated how boss obsesses about him, now I'm doing it just the same. His band played but too bad he didn't cause it was an acoustic set (he's on drums). I actually heard him play before w/ his band Campbell back in 2010 during Summer Slam X but I didn't know him then.
Boss and I had fun. I like attending gigs like this better than those big ones where you can only see the band on the white screen they have to put up for the sake of those people at the back. It's true what SonicBoom's tagline says they do make gigs the don't SUCK. ♥

ps. I had an imaginary boyfriend when I was younger named Louie. LOL
~and I think I have to make another blog post about him entitled Now Stalking. 

something infiniteLy interesting
