Fest O Comm @ SIMC, Lavalle
[Update]This is a video that the students of SIMC made about our visit to their campus. We din’t even know this was being filmed to become a documentary, and we are completely blown away by how amazing it is![End of Update]
SIMC Lavalle is located in the hills just on the outskirts of Pune. The drive there is quite scenic but the campus is breathtakingly beautiful. And right from when we landed there to the final show itself, we had a very good feeling about the show.
We took some rest and had a relaxed soundcheck following which, Joshish played a nice set to get the crowd that had gathered revved up for us to take stage. We got on bang on time, and started with a nice version of our staple set opener, Hey Bhagwan, following it up with the Dewarists track, Masti Ki Basti, which really set the pace for the show.
It was a set that was mostly from the new album until we started hearing cries for all the old favourites and Raghu did not disappoint, we went through the set loving every minute of it and even did an encore to finish things up. After that encore, while the sound guys packed up the stage and were half way through dismantling mics, we saw that the crowd had not left the venue at all! Cries for “One More!” followed and Raghu obliged doing a solo version of ‘No Man will ever love you, like I do”.
Our heartfelt thanks to all the students of SIMC who put this together, especially Pawan and Ankita, you guys were the stars of the evening!
