Parokya ni Edgar was all praises to indie folk band Ben&Ben who brought them awe during their gig at 12 Monkeys last night.

Chito Miranda took to Twitter to express how overjoyed he is that Parokya ni Edgar had the chance to share a gig with the hitmakers behind Spotify viral tracks such as "Ride Home," "Maybe The Night," and "Kathang Isip."

"Salamat sa lahat ng nagtyaga makipagsiksikan sa @12MonkeysPH para manood ng PnE at Ben&Ben! Sobrang saya nun masyado! Salamat din sa B&B, sa pagtugtog kasabay namin! Sobrang lakas nyo, nakaka-intimidate tumugtog after ng set nyo! Nakaka-inis! Sige na. Uwi na ko. Lasing na ko," he wrote.

With a large number of young people who showed up during their gig, Chito felt euphoric as to how times have changed - thanking the band for introducing them to a fresh new audience. 

"Whenever we play sa @12MonkeysPH, we invite young indie acts, in hopes of introducing them to a wider audience. Bilang support sa eksana, kumbaga. Apparently, sa laki ng crowd ng indie acts na ini-imbita namin, parang baliktad, the acts we get introduce us to a younger crowd," he said. 

Chito Miranda also took the opportunity to acknowledge Ben&Ben and fellow indie acts like Reese Lansangan and IV OF SPADES for being living proofs that OPM is alive. 

"Alam nyo kung bakit sobrang astig ng mga banda ngayon? Kasi wala na silang paki sa mainstream media, and their fans actually spend just to see them play," he wrote. 

"At ang nakakatawa dun, ang akala ng mga taong stuck sa mainstream media, matamlay na daw ang OPM! B&B, Reese, IVoS etc," he added. 

PNE guitarist Gab Chee Kee himself also admitted that he was in awe by how everything turned out during their gig.

"Salamat sa mga nanood kanina sa 12 Monkeys! Ansaya sayaaa. Hanep yung Ben&Ben! Ang hirap sundan sa totoo lang. Mejo kinabahan ako. Galing kasi e", he stated.
