The coronavirus might have taken away our freedom to entertain ourselves with concerts and gigs but as the old adage goes, “If there’s a will, there’s a way,” and with technology better than ever, there’s definitely a way. When you’re feeling gloomy, here are concerts and jamming sessions by local artists you can watch. Crank up the volume, let loose a little, and dance at home like there’s no tomorrow!

UDD (formerly Up Dharma Down) is one of the bands that remain to be a pillar of OPM since they formed in 2004. Their recent album, UDD (2019), followed Capacities which was released 7 years prior. For fans, that’s 7 years of waiting but it’s also 7 years of near-perfect concerts and gigs nonetheless. Their Facebook Live concert hosted by Gabay Kalikasan featured songs from their latest album such as “Never” and “Tambalan”, as well as the classic track “Tadhana”.
3D: Danao, Dancel, Dumas
After doing their own 20-minute mini FB Live concerts, Johnoy Danao, Ebe Dancel, and Bullet Dumas join forces to sing the heartbreak anthem of majority of indie-loving millennials. Their online live rendition of Sugarfree’s “Burnout” still managed to soothe and at the same time break thousands of hearts.
Ben&Ben simultaneously did an international launch of their new single “Doors” and did a COVID-19 fundraiser through their YouTube live. The setlist included crowd favorites “Araw-araw,” “Maybe the Night,” and “Pagtingin,” and, of course, “Doors.” The 9-piece band never disappoints everytime they deliver performances and this one was no exception.

Other than giving us a relaxing time listening to their songs, The Ransom Collective’s FB live session proved that the group sounds even better and dreamier live. Their songs serve as a great mood changer now that we’re locked in our homes.

Fresh off the launch of his sophomore album entitled Pangalan, Unique Salonga delivered a raw, simple online concert with nothing but his voice and his guitar to serenade thousands of viewers. Think of it as stripped, acoustic versions of your Unique favorites. The lineup included songs from his new album, “Huwag ka Sanang Magagalit,” and “Pahinga” as well as old favorites such as “Sino”.
Shirebound and Busking

We fell in love with Iego Tan aka Shirebound and Busking when we first heard his song “Waltz of Four Left Feet.” After that, it was easy to see he had so much to contribute to the OPM scene. His FB live concert is part of “Andar Sining: Pasada sa Pagkalinga,” a series of sessions by Pinoy artists for the purpose of racking up donations to help our mechanics, drivers, and operators. Helping fellow Filipinos is the priority and hearing Iego Tan’s voice is just a great bonus.
