3rd date with Mr. Boyd - Or shall I say Mr. Einziger

"@MichaelEinziger: I'll try not to smash my guitar again tomorrow night... 😉 ”  How cute is this Tweet from Mike? July 28, 2011, Megalomaniac -- by far the most memorable concert experience ever!

 "I dig my toes into the sand...." Incubus opened their 4th concert here in Manila with Wish You Were Here. I almost didn't make it to this concert. I reactivated my Facebook just so I can ask friends if they're going so I can tag along; Garcia, MD is the answer yey! Bought a ticket  from a stranger on Facebook on the same day-- I was definitely unprepared. I spent 3k+ back in 2011 for the If Not Now When Tour and I said to myself that this may be the last time ("it will not be the last time" Oil and Water playing in my head) -- buuuuuut how can I miss this one? Got a really good seat at the lower box section - ushers offered us to go to the VIP area for free - I stayed at my seat -- Why?! Why did I pass a free upgrade?!
Kinda felt that the audience did not have that much of energy - I don't know with them, I really had a good time. I yelled "I love you Mike!" Unfortunately he did not hear me.

It was Ben's birthday a day before their gig here, or maybe that same day, since we're 12 hours ahead. Someone yelled "Happy Birthday Ben" and there was a placard (is that what it's called?) that says "BEN IS THE TITS". There weren't much of band-audience interaction during the concert, but really, some people in the audience were just glued to their seats - why?
Anyway, you know what girls anticipate during Incubus concerts? -- Brandon taking his shirt off!! Hahaha - Of course he did, but already towards the end of the set. I was seriously obsessing over Mike this time - I kinda liked his Sick Sad Little World Solo back in 2011.
But I was so kilig when they played "I Miss You" - I totally forgot that they already played it in 2011.

Saw this hilarious but painfully true graph:

Hope to see you again Mike, Brandon, Jose, Ben and Chris ♥
