HIGHLIGHTED PERFORMERS

 

Taichi

@taichi_beni

In the first interview of the night, Taichi amused the audience with his comedy sketch titled "Bei-Jing."


When asked which character he would embody in real life, Taichi expressed his admiration for Shane Dylan, his favorite comedian.


During his performance, Taichi candidly confessed his fear of the TTC past midnight, striking a chord with many in the audience who shared the same sentiment. His honesty and humor resonated, making his act both relatable and entertaining.

Daniel Joe Armstrong

Taking the stage with Green Day's "Angel Blue" and his original "Rattlesnake," Daniel Joe Armstrong delved into the imaginative realm, embodying characters from literature and comics. Romeo from Romeo and Juliet appealed to him due to his intense romantic infatuation, while Superman/Clark Kent fascinated him for his noble use of power and intelligence.


Tonight's question, "What are you letting go of?" led to a profound revelation. Daniel revealed his desire to be liberated from the constraints of getting up late and seeking approval from his parents. Previously, Daniel felt the need for their validation and permission in musical pursuits. However, he’s now realized his independence and no longer lets their opinions dictate his choices. Regardless of their approval, Daniel shares his life with them, reclaiming his autonomy in his decisions and pursuits.

Reflecting on the question of the night, "What are you letting go of?" John shared his intention to release perfectionism. He acknowledged the link between perfectionism and procrastination and expressed his desire to overcome this tendency. By letting go of the pursuit of perfection, he believed he could harness the power to initiate and move forward.

Reflecting on the question of the night, "What are you letting go of?" Leonardo's response was simple yet profound. He expressed his decision to release all negative energy, embracing a future filled only with positive vibes and uplifting moments.

Las Empanadas Mas Ricas

No Sunday Sessions is complete without the presence of our beloved vendor, Eva! For over a month now, she has been delighting our enthusiastic crowd with her culinary creations well into the evening. Offering an array of delectable flavors including pulled pork, chicken, beef, cheese, and lactose-free options, Eva ensures there's a delightful empanada to satisfy every palate.


Her journey in the empanada business began in July of last year, initially taking personal orders before swiftly expanding to cater events and handle larger orders. Eva has become a cherished weekly vendor, a fixture not only at OBJX's Sunday Sessions but also at Open Concepts every Tuesday.

Gracing the stage with poignant performances of "Until I Found You" by Stephan Sanchez and "The Show Must Go On" by Queen, Astrid brought depth and emotion to her set.


In response to the question of which character she would embody in real life, Astrid chose Lucky from Marvel, a character marked by profound resilience. Despite his struggles and heartbreak, Lucky remains positive and devoted to saving the world, embodying strength even in adversity.


Reflecting on the question of the night, Astrid shared her intention to let go of negative people and energy. She symbolized this transformation with the butterfly, representing positive transformation in Korean culture, signifying her embrace of positivity and growth.

Hitting the stage with soulful renditions of "What's Goin' On" by Marvin Gaye and "Bone" by Childish Gambino, the band and couple Sex Bandit brought a blend of nostalgia and contemporary flair to the night.


When asked which character they would embody in real life, the members of Sex Bandit expressed their admiration for figures like Jesus and Mother Teresa—people known for spreading kindness. They emphasized their focus on becoming the best versions of themselves, embodying qualities of compassion and understanding.


Addressing the question of the night, they revealed their intention to let go of distractions and refocus on what truly matters. In their pursuit of self-improvement, they mentioned letting go of the need for control, allowing the world to influence them and embracing the organic flow of life.

Angelic

@Angelic.unt

Stepping into the spotlight, Angelic mesmerized the audience with their evocative poetry pieces "Contamination" and "Uber Eats City."


When questioned about the character they'd embody in real life, Angelic picked Shego from Kim Possible, drawn to her intriguing blend of queerness, villainy, and undeniable allure.


In response to the night's query, Angelic revealed their courageous choice: shedding the habit of silencing themselves for the comfort of others. This declaration underscored their determination to embrace their voice and identity without constraints, resonating with authenticity and inner strength.

Closing the night with soulful melodies, I decided on performing "Daddy's a Psycho" by Charlotte Cardin and my newest heartfelt original track "Sometimes."


As a character I would like to embody in real life, I chose Patrick Star, because I need to be more unapologetically goofy and joyful.


Reflecting on the night's question, I am to let go of vices and people who drain me. I am to be more committed to self-care and surrounding myself with positivity, signifying a journey toward personal growth and renewal.

Another night for the blogs!


Thank you to everyone who came out, our jams always make my heart full and, because we were so prompt, we were able to jam for a full hour. I love to see how people experiment with others and their own ideas, and especially friends dancing along.


Love always,

OBJX
