One of the reasons I love this production is that it has a tonne of musumeyaku action. After a quick recap for the audience (from Ebira Kaoru in a supremely sparkly outfit) the first actual scene is all an introduction of Rosalie’s plot. Karincho’s Andre is the best adopted big brother ever, pep-talking her into going to the ball to continue with her investigation. It helps that Ayu Yuuki is adorable in the Chapi type - like Chapi, she started as otokoyaku and switched shortly before becoming top.

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014 – The Suffers Bring Some Soul to Dallas

The main focus (genre wise) at Trees this night was Americana and roots rock, but Somebody’s Darling had put together a diverse lineup for their CD release show.

The Houston-based soul band The Suffers made just their second trip ever to the city, preparing to follow up a standout performance from the Homegrown Music Festival just three months prior.

The nine members fit comfortably on the spacious stage, and all of them got warmed up by yelling at the top of their lungs. It’s a battle cry of sorts, allowing them to all get in tune with one another. Trees was already pretty crowded at this point, too, and plenty of people there joined along with the shouting.

Everyone appeared to be caught up in the spell they cast with their first number; the soulful sound being perfect to dance to, while others just slightly swayed as the band did their thing. Cory Wilsons’ saxophone solo delighted the listeners; and the band rolled that song right into the fun, catchy, and even steamy, “Make Some Room”.

Vocalist Pat Kelly was really getting into the groove now, making little motions with her hands from time to time to help in expressing the lyrics. “Come on, let me cook for you, baby… I love you like I’ve know you forever…” she belted in her powerhouse voice on the chorus. At other times, when the trumpet, guitars, bass or anything else was getting it’s moment, she just danced along, completely embracing the music.

“Thank you, we’re The Suffers,” she informed everyone afterwards, as the audience roared with approval. She also mentioned this was their first evening show in Dallas. As of right now, they only have a few singles to buy, but she also pointed out they were getting ready to release a full-length, saying she was thought January would probably be when it comes out. With that, they tackled one of their singles from 2013, “Slow it Down”. The keys (which were manned by Steve Wells this night); the brass section of Cory and Jon Durbin on the trumpet; and additional percussionist Jose “Chapy” Luna (who rocked what looked like a couple of djembe drums, as well as a floor tom) were each prominently featured on that song that did everything but slow down the mood.

By this time, they had a full-fledged party going on. It was really neat, actually, to see a band who has such little experience playing Dallas, but has already become so well received.

They kept the feel good vibes up with another song, this one featuring a trombone solo at one point; and then Kam addressed something. She pointed out that those who had seen their set at Homegrown might remember that Pat Kelly wasn’t behind the drums then, but the keys. Turns out, their usual drummer, Nick Zamora and his wife had just welcomed a child into the world. So, fairly last minute, they had Pat fill in on the kit, and recruited Steve of the band Featherface to do keys for them.

They moved on with another infectious dance number, one that had Kam removing the microphone from the stand, as she strolled around the stage; and while bassist Adam Castaneda and guitarist Kevin Bernier were hidden behind the brass section, you could see them bobbing about from time to time.

Jose got the audience to participate in a clap along at the start of “Gwan”, as they built up to the beginning; and later on, guitarist Alex Zamora got another clap along going, while Jose slapped away at the djembes. “Thank you again. Just thank you. This has been great,” Kam said once it was over, overwhelmed by all the love that was being showered upon them.

They slowed the mood down a bit with “Giver”, before doing one final song to cap off their 39-minute long set.

It was next to impossible to not get completely lost in this show. It radiated positive, feel good vibes, and simply listening to the music made you happy. You can’t forget about the solid performance, either. I imagine a lot of effort has to go into making a nine-piece band so cohesive, but it pays off, ‘cause they killed it this night. That includes Steve, who had to use sheet music to know what to play, but still fit well with the band.

They offered a fun change of pace for the night, and everyone took to it.

The Suffers will be back in Dallas on September 27th for Index Festival. They’ll be playing plenty of other festivals, too. From Houston No Limits Cityfest on September 6th, to Untapped Fest on the 20th and Lone Star Festival in early November. All of those are in Houston, and they also have a show in late October at CMJ in New York. You can also grab the few songs they do have over in iTUNES.

Rediscovering Baguio City: Museums, New Attractions, and Food Finds

Baguio City is considered as the default travel destination of everyone in Luzon. You don’t need to prepare for your itinerary because attractions, places and restaurants are much accessible to the public. Victory Liner has regular trips from Manila to Baguio every hour of the day, so getting there is not a dilemma.
