#The1975MNL + Mixtape Monday!

Last Saturday, my friends and I had a blast at The 1975’s concert in MOA Arena. Although I must admit, we were never the biggest fans of the band (we barely knew all of their songs), but we had fun dancing to their tunes, screaming like a real groupie, and singing those songs that we’re familiar with. We never really planned on coming to the concert, but my friends scored free tickets, and seeing them live sounds fun.
I was late during the concert since I came all the way from Tagaytay for a media tour (post coming up soon!). Despite being all tired from traveling and waking up extra early, my energy never failed me, with us eventually hitting Redbox for a karaoke concert (we were there until 3AM), and a quick catch up at Starbucks right after. We went home at 5AM, dizzy from staying up all night and drained from all the crazy dancing. For the record, we were all sober; we’re just too energetic and happy. Ha ha. 🙂
One bit that I loved the most during The 1975’s performance was when Matt (apparently extra drunk/high) asked the audience to keep away their phones and just listen to him sing. I definitely agreed with him on this. I mean, what’s the use of being in a concert if you just stand in there, holding your phone, and taking in videos? You might as well stayed at home and save thousands of bucks instead of going in there to brag about it on social media. I decided to do just that, even prior to him mentioning it to the audience. I never really had much photos or videos, because I really wanted to know their band, sink my teeth to their music, and just let myself go and dance and jump through their riffs and beats. After my experience, I can’t really say if I’ve converted myself into a fan. But either way, it was memorable, and I definitely enjoyed myself immensely through the night.
This Monday, I decided to come up with a mixtape (haven’t done this for a long time!) inspired by The 1975. Listed down songs from other bands that reminded me of them. Hope you like them, too!
