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:

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.

A memorable evening of madness and frenzy ensued at the third edition of RSJ Live Nites, held at the Blue Frog, Delhi on September 15.

Aditya Varma tells you more.

Bomb.Thursdays at Kino 108 with a Post-Rock Twist

We've covered Bomb.Thursdays at Kino 108 many, many times before in the past, so what's one more. Our man Akhil Sood was there to witness a brilliant gig where the music took centre-stage and a different-ish line-up really worked in the soft, intimate confines of the venue. Read on for more.
