A review of Foreward by Big City Harmonics.
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.
A review of Firdous by Coshish.
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:
A review of Lucky 7: Stupid Ditties, an Ennui.Bomb Compilation.
Pentagram with their very first gig at the Blue Frog, Delhi. Shaa’ir + Func and their explosive live act. The Lightyears Explode with their endearing indie-pop-punk thing. And Drawing Short Straws and their hypnotic experimental sound. The Gig Week finale had it all. Aditya Varma was there as our resident documenter.
Our man Aditya Varma headed over to catch The Family Cheese, Spud in the Box, Snafu, and Nice Weather for Ducks, who played at Turquoise Cottage in Delhi on September 24, as part of The Gig Week. Here's what he touch, saw, heard, felt, tasted.

A review of Ambiance de Danse by Amyt Datta.
It's standard protocol across some public forums to not mix your alcohol with Bhanuj Kappal. But we're not much for rules and all that and so we sent them to the Sky Rabbit gig together. This is the first in a series of adventures.
The bizarre nature of the new video released by Delhi’s Peter Cat Recording Co., of their song ‘Love Demons’, makes it difficult to have any properly formulated opinions on it. Nevertheless, it’s a weird visual experience, and one that compelled Akhil Sood to jot down a few thoughts on it.
