It’s been more than a year since the pandemic started. Everything was affected, especially music concerts. How long has it been since you’ve listened to music gigs after a tiresome day at work, have some laughs with your buddies, and just enjoyed the night away? Some of you may feel that your lives suddenly became routinary. We say it’s time to Unwind!
It’s time to Unwind: 6 things you can do to break the routine and de-stress:
1. Jam with us at the Unwind Digital Concert with Lila Blanca and NOX
Lila Blanca has been in the alternative music scene since 1997. If you haven’t heard of their songs from their first album, The Collie Flower, go and check out right now! Now, the band is back with their new upcoming single, “Paikot-ikot.” This song will teach us that life will throw you the most significant challenges, but you should trust and let nature run its course because eventually, it will get better.
The song “Paikot-ikot” is produced and recorded with audio partner Mix Machine Audio and Music Production. You can also show your support by purchasing their band merchandise from shirts, masks, and hoodies! Check out the band’s upcoming projects at Lila Project!
Join us at the Unwind Digital Concert hosted by Don C on August 21, 7 to 10 PM. You will also get a chance to win fantastic prizes! If you miss going to gigs, this one gives you those “feels” back. The concert is free, and you can watch it on Lila Blanca’s Official Facebook Page. Visit the event’s official page and RSVP here.
