The Scene Around: The Bloomfields A DROP INTO THE BLUE album launch

07/04/2019 08:50:37 PM 

The Bloomfields
It was in 2011 when The Bloomfields previously released Hit The Ground Running, the album comprised of their all-original tracks such as Express Highway, It's Complicated, and Panaginip

But the rock band came a long way to get back in making new music. In fact, it was during early 2018 when the quartet of Rocky, Lakan, Dino, and Louie started taking bar gigs – aside from performing covers in randomly-scheduled long nights. 

And the culmination came thanks to the support of their beloved fans who helped them funding a project.

Inside the usual lively South Triangle district lies Historia Bouqtiue Bar and Restaurant as The Bloomfields – through the help of The Spark Project and Gabi Na Naman Productions – launched A DROP INTO THE BLUE, a 14-track album comprising the band's original compositions including the singles How Dare You, One Time Nevermind, Ilaw, and Tutut

Shirebound and Busking
Saturday night has never been this vibrant as the venue was packed to the rafters in as early as 9:00PM, which barely means no excuse for late starts as Shirebound and Busking kicked us right away with tunes to awe the mixed-aged crowd. 

Next came the bunch of young guns: Oh, Flamingo! and Munimuni, two of today's popular acts that always keep on giving awe to the crowd with their brand of indie-rock and makata-pop music, respectively. 

Oh, Flamingo!
But obviously, the night belonged to the rockin' four-man crew, who performed every single track from their newest record – plus their classic rendition of Ale as the sole part of the encore. Ladies and gentlemen, the world has witnessed a second resurgence coming into life in front of the newbies and avid fans.

Orange & Lemons capped the evening with a rocking set of their own. These two bands can really share the night as either headliners or co-headliners. It's just O&L have to take things with a bit of rush since they are then slated to perform in another gig at Makati later that evening.

Orange & Lemons
Safe to say this has been one of memorable Sabado nights for me this year, eh? Never in my life I have witnessed Historia bar having the feel of a king-sized show before. There were no shades of generation gap as the kids were introduced to one of the bands that rocked the latter half of the mid-2000s OPM band explosion era.
