RDP Live at Vismay 2009 – April 9th

Its been a long long time since we played in Bangalore (well, longer than we would have wanted to) so its time to rectify that and thanks to the lovely students at Don Bosco Institute of Technology, we are playing in their college for their annual fest – Vismay 2009.

Don Bosco Institute of Technology is on Mysore Road – just head down until you find it on Mysore Road itself 🙂 You can also view a map on Google Maps – here

Come by and catch some fun new songs and a fantastic live set 😉 .. and I am not exaggerating!


Touch the Tune Concert

I apologize firstly for the delay in doing this and its about time I did! So here we go ..

The show was something all of us in the band were looking forward to with the greatest enthusiasm. We were dying to play a big show in Bangalore and it was after a long time that we got such a show in place.

Also, the day before the concert, we met a lot of our friends who wanted to come for the show and couldn’t find tickets elsewhere and gave them passes for the show. Before the show began however, it was a little grim because none of us were sure of the turn out and considering the fact that we were to go on by 8 PM on a work day with Bangalore’s traffic being what it is, it was not looking any good!

But when we did get on stage, it was a treat to see about 6000 screaming people in the audience who as it turned out were very familiar with our music and loved it!

That was enough of a push for us to put together a wonderful set and we got going from the first song onward! The band was full of energy and enthusiasm and were jumping around like wild teenagers on stage! The sound had a few issues on stage but we were in no mood to worry about any of that. The response we got was absolutely fantastic and we made quite a few fans that day I must say!

Karsh Kale and the Punditz who followed us were in a league of their own and were a fitting finale to the event. The organizers managed to get the concert extended long enough for a nice set from the band though I think it was Pappon who stole the show after he taught all of us how to ‘Banaao’!

A huge round of thanks to Kalyan Varma and Noella D’sa for the super photos of that night! We are still to see the rest of them though 😛


Meeting at Coffee Day

[UPDATE] – If you couldn’t come yesterday, there are passes left behind at the Coffee Day on Cunningham road. Not the one in Sigma Mall. Please Pick them up on your way to the concert.

Raghu and I went to Coffee Day yesterday for the much awaited meeting with everyone who had asked for passes for our show today! We went armed with about a 100 passes and more importantly went there to meet everyone who would come and were fans of our music 🙂

We keep hearing how people who really liked us in a show could not come and meet us after the show and are really excited to meet us and thought this was a brilliant way to do just that!

The turnout was a tad lower than we expected, but it is completely understandable that people from a little far away could not really get through the maddening traffic in the city to make it on time and also like someone pointed out to us later, there was another coffee day in Sigma Mall on Cunningham Road, so I am hoping many people din’t go there and miss us that way.

Anyway, for the people that did show up, we had a nice round of introductions and conversation, lots of photos were taken and lots of passes were given out as well! Now we hope all of you turn up for the show and get more with you when you come!

For those that couldn’t make it, we have left the remaining passes at the Coffee Day counter itself. Please go there and pick it up on your way to the concert!


Cruising past the 8th Mile

It was after a LONG LONG time that we played in Bangalore and it was totally worth the wait! The 8th Mile at RVCE was jumping and celebrating with us and it was an awesome feeling to play a fun gig after a few failed attempts (which our manager Vijay has promised to write about)

Right from when we entered the campus to the time we left we were treated exceptionally well by the crew of students led by Rahul and Ramya (or so it seemed) and everyone else in the team that had got us there. We were led straight to sound check, the stage was set up the way we wanted, everything was available and all in all, it was a setting for a super gig!

There was this one issue of rain which kept showing up in small measures but it was never really a major threat! The students had turned up in large numbers and most of them seemed to know the songs we were singing which was always good! And you know its going to be a good gig when the response to your first song is something like this!!

Eitherway .. the show was damn good fun and we had a blast playing and I would like to thank everyone from RVCE for having called us there and for the brilliant hospitality! you struck a chord in our hearts! And I hope you spread the music … legally! 😛

A HUGE HUGE thank you to Veena for coming and taking some of the most wonderful pictures of the band on stage ever taken! You are an absolute sweetheart!

PS: All these pictures are courtesy of Veena’s photography. Please do drop in a note if you like them! and watch out for the rest!

Something’s Brewing!

Its been a really really long time since we played in Namm Ooru ‘Bengaluru’ and it seems quite strange to have a show in the town we are from! But we are .. and that is the good news!

BrewHaHa in Koramangala is where all the action will happen, so come there early if you want a realistic chance at sitting and watching us, but then who sits and watches us anyway!

Time: 7:30pm – 9:00pm
Location: Koramangala – Next to Jyoti Nivas College!

This is a free show, so there are no tickets, there is limited space so the early birds get to peck first!

PS: Put on your dancing shoes and come in the best of your spirits! its going to be a party!!
