U is for Up Dharma Down

U

Yeah… my officemate Ate Gi is right: this A-Z Blogging Challenge post is all about my favorite local band, Up Dharma Down!

I don’t usually listen to local and modern songs, but recently, I discovered an amazing yet underrated band. Up Dharma Down rose to fame during my high school years (around 2005, I think?), but I didn’t care until earlier this year. I hear their name everywhere, but most of my favorite songs are from 1950s to early 2000s, so I didn’t pay attention.

Though I regret the wasted years that I didn’t listen to their songs (lol), I’m still happy because, now, I’m one of their million biggest fans. I love all of their songs. I listen to UDD every day– on the way to work, in the office, after work hours… every time! They have a separate playlist on my player, and it’s been on repeat since I discovered them. If I keep talking, I’d sound so obsessed… so I’ll stop. Hahaha.

Oh… by the way: recently, my friends and I watched their gig in saGuijo (an acoustic bar near my place) and this happened:
