The Celeste Fest 2013, Mussoorie - Oct 25, 26

A stunning location, some great music, some not so much, rum in the hills, shattered bass drums, and memories of staring down to look at the clouds - the first edition of the Celeste Music Festival, held at the George Everest House in Mussoorie, was a grand success. Aditya Varma was there to witness the ins and outs; below are his thoughts.

The Bacardi NH7 Weekender 2013 - Pune, October 18-20

Buckets of alcohol, crumbling ATM machines inside old, old vans, bands playing on top of a bus, the curious incident of the missing bread, "All Star" jams - The Pune edition of the Bacardi NH7 Weekender 2013 had it all, or most of it, really. Akhil Sood writes.

Odds and Ends - Bacardi NH7 Weekender 2013, Pune

Naturally, a three-day music festival will have a lot of things happening, not all of which can be crammed into a review. So we thought we'd have this special section for stray observations made at the Pune edition of the Bacardi NH7 Weekender festival, held on Oct 18-20. Read on for Scribe vs. a heckler, the perils of drinking buckets, the Red Bull Tour Bus, dogs, sugar rushes, and more. Click here to read our complete review of the festival.

The Scene feat. Until We Last, Pinocchio's Moment of Clarity, and Space Behind the Yellow Room at Blue Frog, Mumbai

Minus its pedestrian name, The Scene – a series of monthly gigs organized by NH7 and Blue Frog – is a great initiative that not only helps young bands by putting them up on the big stage at the Blue Frog, Mumbai early in their lives as performing musicians, but also allows us wastrels and wanderers the opportunity to check out new music. V 6.0 featured three bands which had unusually long and weird names, so Akhil Sood, who calls himself quite the post-rock enthusiast, went to check out the gig. Here are his numbered thoughts:
