The “landmark” gig in Bangalore

It has been a long long time since we played in Bangalore and yesterday’s show at ‘Landmark’ in the Garuda Swagath mall was one of the most looked forward to! both by us and a few of the people who have been writing in.

But what it eventually turned out to be was just beyond all our expectations and when Raghu exclaimed that “The crowd in Bangalore is the best!” and that “This is one of the best shows we’ve played” .. it was completely true!

There was an air about the show even before it actually began, and there was a welling crowd filling up all the possible standing space around the stage area. I had honestly not expected so many people to turn up, but then it was brilliant to see all of you there!

The gig started with songs from the first album and each of them had a very vocal Bangalore crowd singing along and I guess video taping the concert like I have never seen before. Like someone right pointed out, this is a great example of social media at work and I hope everyone uploads all the photos and videos they have taken and shares it with others!

Raghu then moved on to some songs from ‘Psycho’, the latest Kannada movie sensation and those songs were like a wildfire through dried hay! the whole store seemed to sing along and at times even remind Raghu of the lyrics!

In all, it was a great gig! lots of people, nice place, good fun! Thanks all of you for coming along and making this special. Upload all your photos and videos and send us a link so we can check them out too! and keep coming back here to check about the next time we play where you are 🙂

You can check out and you can see the whole set on the Raghu Dixit Project Flickr Page.

The blue frog (c)ro(a)cked!

We finally got to play at the much talked about ‘Blue Frog‘ at Mumbai which in my humble opinion is one of the best clubs to play at in India. We had heard from everyone how it was a wonderful place to perform at and in many ways, it did live up to the hype!

After an uneventful journey to Bombay and being taken care of very well, we landed up at the Blue Frog for sound check in the afternoon and had to wait a bit for the sound engineer to arrive and start the check, but it was time well spent with Siva and me up to our standard stunts and in between all that trying to teach the lovely Neysa (from Only Much Louder – the band management company) some South Indian slang!

Sound check finally got underway and after some time, we managed to get somewhere with the sound and there were some interesting moments on stage like this where Raghu was completely lost in the music. Please do check the fantastic Gibson guitar that he was wielding! And do check out the cool hairdo I am sporting thanks to the lovely Shilpa 🙂

The show was fantastic! we had a super audience who were quite enthusiastic, thanks to everyone who came, our friends and fans who pushed up our enthu and energy on stage!

Among many other things, this gig will be remembered as Anirban’s last gig for some time … You will be missed 🙂 .. Best of luck with your new adventure!

PS: If you haven’t already, please do check the photos of us playing at the Blue Frog! Thanks a ton Kalhan for these amazing pics!
