This is the official blog entry by SomePlace Else. Check with the venue about exact timings and passes etc.


We’re ripping the charts apart at Crossword, Bangalore

I went today to Crossword on Residency Road, Bangalore to get something for a friend and while I was there I decided it was time to check if our album was available there and so I went to the music section and asked for ‘The Raghu Dixit Project’ CD.

The sales man was ecstatic! he was overjoyed that someone was asking for the album .. he personally walked me to the section and said that he recommends it whole heartedly and I should definitely buy the album. Now, at this point, he still doesn’t know that I play for the band, so I play along with him and ask him why he thinks so and he keeps raving about how the songs were lovely and how it grew on him and how he plays it in the store and everyone asks which CD it is and wants to buy it!!!

So then I mentioned to him that I play for the band, and he was even more kicked!! he changed the music in the store to play his favourite, the Kannada songs from the album and was going non stop about how he likes the music!

Since I am anyway all set for a life on the road, I pulled out my recorder which was in the car and went on to record him saying all that!

So push play and yenjoy 🙂 !!


For those that missed the launch .. have put out their coverage of the album launch and it is quite well put together! So those of you that missed the launch … please do take a look at the video and let us and them know what you thought of it! 

We are also told that they will be putting out a lot more stuff from the launch and about the band on their website .. I shall keep you updated when that happens!

Mommy I’m on TV!!

NDTV gave its viewers an exclusive pre-launch look at the album and an interview with Raghu from the venue at the Eastwind Festival.

Here is Raghu explaining the concept of the ‘Bonus CD’ and the other contents of the album on air. Also, keep an eye out for our humble boy as the album was receiving rave reviews by the NDTV host 🙂

Still to come … Tons of pics and stories from the MTV Alert photoshoot, the testimonial from all of Bollywood (well … most of Bollywood atleast) .. So watch this space!

The CD has begun surfacing!

So we just got back from playing at the Eastwind Festival and as we were getting ready to go to the festival, Raghu started getting messages from people congratulating him about the album and how lovely they thought it looked and stuff like that!

A visibly shocked Raghu made a few calls and it turns out, the Counter Culture store at the festival decided it was time to start getting the CDs out! and had actually started selling CDs!!!!!

So its official people … the CD IS OUT!!!! The official launch is on 26th in Bombay and the CD will be available at a store near you … very soon! But the CD is out and its time you guys who got it started telling us and everyone else what you thought of it.

These are a few pictures to whet your appetite, of the album on sale and the first few fans to buy it in Delhi! We clearly outsold any other artiste on sale at the EastWind Festival … Now we’re hoping that will happen country wide!

Raghu made quite a few fans today and signed many autographs and most importantly, the wait is finally over! and this time there is no more postponement …

We now step into the next chapter!


One week to go!

It began as a murmur a LONG LONG time back and like a good broth, it was prepared slowly!

And now there is no turning back and no pushing it forward either (atleast that seems to be the case from here!). Its exactly one week left to the launch of the debut album and the magnitude of it is finally beginning to hit us! Its just one week for everything to go euphorically crazy!

The album as you already know is under the ‘Vishal-Shekhar Music’ label and is being distributed by HMV Saregama and should be hitting stores very close to where you are very soon! I am being bombarded with questions about the availability of the album and online sales. I promise to find out about the same and post here ASAP.

For now, please give us any innovative ideas that you can think of to market the album and get it into as many people’s hands as possible. Right from BitTorrent to Flash Mobs, let us hear your ideas and lets try to implement as many of them!

From here, I will give you one story about the album each day … so make sure you come back here often!

The comments section is waiting for you .. go there and let me hear your ideas!
