Well, I was there...
Again I'm going to say it: I recommend Octopus.
The night started with the Perez Band, and then Octopus got onto the stage. This was the set:
- Bonsai - well, I guess, cuz I missed this one and I arrived right when it ways starting:
- Ruka Pillán
- (a new one)
- Bipolar
- (a new one)
And that was all, less than an hour! Well, it was free... but a great show, with a good sound, loyal to that of the album.
Also good news were announced: Another gig on november, 3th, and the new album before August 2008.

They've already written a couple of tunes and a new album is on the working! Cool!! How were those new tracks: continuing the essence of "Bonsai" or including notoriously new elements?
    Kind regards.

I'd say in the way of Bonsai. The last one was something like ON/CD, very powerfull... and the another one it has a kind of riff, or how to say it, a section repeating over and over again that typical break which is repeated only one bar...
Whatever, I didn't notice a clear difference (well, there were no playback voices).
