A four-song set seems too short a gig. But Gin Blossoms proved otherwise, having delivered a solid line-up of hit songs that sealed their fate as one of the quintessential bands of the ‘90s.
Last Tuesday, October 22, the American pop rock band gave fans gathered at the Eastwood Mall Open Park in Libis, Quezon City an arsenal of familiar songs in unplugged version. The band featured the trio of lead vocalist Robin Wilson and guitarists Jesse Valenzuela and Scott Johnson.
The band made their mall appearance one night after they performed at the Araneta Coliseum with two other '90s bands: Sugar Ray and Smash Mouth.
Band was cheerful
While the concert seemed plagued with problems, Gin Blossoms looked cheerful as they
appeared on that mall stage with just a couple of acoustic guitars, a tambourine and harmonica, which Robin worked occasionally.
The set had a rousing start with "Follow You Down," a top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hit from their second album "Congratulations I'm Sorry" released in 1996.
