Words by Cedric Manuel
The world between a veteran theater-slash-singer/songwriter and an upcoming rock outfit may be unimaginably wide. But that wouldn’t stop Ang Huling El Bimbo lead actor Gian Magdangal and alternative rock band Garage Morning from pulling off one of the most unlikely collaborations mounted in the live streaming meta that’s happening in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
"Ride My Other Car to Places of Paradise" is an EP commentary show with Garage Morning, Gian Magdangal and hosted by Martin Riggs

The show started by featuring each act’s top fan. For Gian Magdangal, it’s Mark, an aspiring singer/songwriter and theater actor pretty much like him, who was surprised that he actually already has original material, having just listened to it recently. Garage Morning’s best supporter is Cynthia, a girl who initially only knew of the band’s lead vocalist Marj Rojas and eventually became a fan of the band after following her through their gigs.

The whole commentary was full of some insights about the backstories of each other’s songs, what one thinks of the other’s material, and some experiences in the production of those tracks, making for almost an hour-long conversation that delivers good value to those who listened with them.
