A Star Was Launched :)
Part of our plan to claim one section of the Palace Grounds is underway already! we figured, if we play there often enough, they might not object to us staking permanent claim to the venue :p – So we went back a week after the Octoberfest to play at the launch of the Maruti Suzuki “A-Star” (which explains the title?) along with Parikrama and Farhan Akthar!
Soundcheck in the blazing afternoon sun is not the funnest thing we have done, but it is a necessary evil! Kumar on the sound console who has been with us for many shows before was putting us through motions as the band slowly assembled on stage and ran through some songs.
We just got off stage from soundcheck and the rain Gods decided to grace the venue and cool things down a little and at the same time delaying proceedings a little because when we came back to the venue in the night, Parikrama and Farhan Akthar were just about wrapping up their sound check.
Our twitter friends who got their passes handed out made sure that we were constantly updated on what was happening on the other side! and also when we were on stage, the rest of the world was getting updated with a blow by blow account
The show started off excellently with the crowd fully on our side screaming their lungs out! Until some event happening at the next venue caused the police to come over and cut down levels on the PA where we were playing! This was a bit of a downer, but soon, things were pulled back to normal and we continued pushing ourselves largely on the basis of the crowd that cheered us on
A personal round of thanks to everyone who came out and watched us yesterday! you guys made the whole show worthwhile for us
