Acoustic Night: Rewind

There’s nothing like the goosebumps-inducing feeling of nostalgia straight from the vocal chords and strongs of the MEcOustics gang! Last time, the MEcOustics group sprinkled us with an acute sense of #FilipinoPride as they showed their talents by performing OPM songs. This time they took us back into the time of the 2000s by performing songs that we all enjoyed and loved during our earlier days!

MEcOnistas always look forward to MEcO get-togethers and opportunities to meet new people. MEcOustics: REWIND, held last March 9th at Beats & Stats, was the perfect avenue for a night to unwind from academic or work stress. Thanks to the feel of the venue, MEcOnistas enjoyed the throwback music being played by the performers. Together with the music, the MEcObulls enjoyed pizza, nachos, and each other’s company. There’s nothing more unwinding than the idea of our wee days as innocent kids. How nostalgic!

After a busy year, it’s time for the MEcOustics gang to call it a night. Tune in next year for a new batch of talented bulls as they once again tune their guitars, polish their sax’s and warm-up their vocal chords. Until then!

Right after the culminating of SOM Week came another event MEcOnistas highly look forward to which is the return of Acoustic Night for its second year. MEcOnistas were given the chance to unwind and bask in the live music and the chill ambiance of the night.

Hosted by Ateneo MEcO’s Fund Management department, Acoustic Night paved an avenue for MEcOnistas to showcase their talents through live performances as Ateneo MEcO not only invests in stocks but also in the talents of its members!

This year’s Acoustic Night was held under the cozy and warm lights of Yellow Flame Bar and Grill in Kapitolyo where we got to witness the amazing voices of MEcOnistas as they sing their hearts out to their own rendition of OPM classics such as Aiza Seguerra’s “Pagdating ng Panahon” and Eraserhead’s “Huling El Bimbo.”

Fitz Shioda and Brandon Alonzo kicked off Acoustic Night by serenading the crowd with their original compositions. Spotted in the scene were some of last year’s and this year’s MEcOustics members.

One of the highlights that night included the performance of Andrew Niguidula where the crowd surprisingly and harmoniously sang along to the his rendition of “Pare Ko” and “Narda.” On the other hand, Migs Caparas’ came prepared with a sawi song by Hale entitled “The Day You Said Goodnight.”

Acoustic Night was definitely not just a night of live music. It was a night where people took a break from academics and work and instead focused on something one would regard as the important matter–family and friends. At the end of the day, here in MEcO we are all family.
