You could be my luck
Even in a hurricane of frowns
I know that we'll be safe and sound
- Safe and Sound, Capital Cities
This band and their songs played a big part in keeping me sane during those sleepless nights while I was doing my undergrad thesis. "Safe and Sound" was my thesis anthem. Haha!
I immediately fell in love with Capital Cities when I first heard their song on an app I was using back in 2011 and decided to look up their other songs. I hated how they didn't have a wikipedia page at that time, so finding more about them wasn't easy. I also hated how when I'd google (or when other people would mention) "Safe and Sound", Taylor Swift's song would always come up.
I was so ecstatic when I heard their song being played on Philippine radio in 2013, as it meant that the chances of them coming to the country were increasing. And lo-and-behold, it happened. Just imagine my joy and excitement they announced that they were coming to Manila! Heck, they were performing at Alabang Town Center, which is like my second home!
Words can't even describe how I was feeling upon having watched them perform live. They're amazing and the show was so much fun! Throughout the show, the band was engaging crowd to dance. And I love how by the end of the show, the concert became a dance party, wherein everyone, including the band, was jumping, dancing, and just partying. (click the link for a video)
I still can't get over seeing one of my favorite bands perform live. And for free, at that! Can't stop smiling 'til now. <3
