At the risk of tooting our own horn/beating our own drum/sounding painfully smug, RSJ has, along with a handful of other individuals and organizations, been instrumental in setting up a structure of independent music in the country, and Delhi, specifically. We march to our own beat, you could say. (Ed: OK, enough with the drums and the horns.)

Nevertheless, RSJ Live Nites is another initiative by RSJ that aims at promoting the live music culture here. Its roots lie in New Delhi, with the first three editions of the revamped property being held in the capital, but the endeavour will eventually expand to other parts of the country.

1. The goal, essentially, is to establish a sense of community between fans and artists through live music.
 

2. RSJ Live Nites is a common space, a platform where musicians and their fans can communicate and interact, to help cultivate a feeling of belonging in this small but driven community that we’ve come to call a scene or a niche movement of rock/metal/electronica/post-experimental/whatever music that people are choosing to be a part of instead of contemporary fads and commercial music.

3. To discover new music, young bands, old bands, weird bands, anything really, as long as there is a certain level of quality and a certain level of honesty about it, and showcase this music to the audiences and propel their music into the public consciousness. As tempting as it may be, we’re choosing to bypass the whole genre wars thing completely because that’s like so two thousand and late, like, seriously. Instead, we want to focus entirely on the spirit of live music.
 

4. To connect fans with each other and expose them to all the music that’s out there.
 

5. To develop, or re-develop if you buy into nostalgia, a greater support structure – to create a scene again, if you will.

6. We still love you even if you didn’t bother reading all of this. And we even made a little video to tell you what Live Nites is, which you can watch below:
