Mumbai Gig Previews: Soulmate, Sickflip & The All Star Jam
12 June 2013
Something for everyone in the bay tonight, depending on what your palate's craving of course.
blueFROG's got India's favourite blues band setting up camp tonight within their quarters. Soulmate hasn't had a gig in Mumbai since they brought down the warehouse at the Mahindra Blues Festival in February so chances of a packed night fall less in the realm of promising as it does in certainty.
Mixtaped, as always, remains a favourite Wednesday night haunt for the indulgent. This week Reji's got one half of Mental Martians, Sickflip, getting behind the console as he dishes out his tunes for anyone who really wants to dance. As his more experimental solo project, you can expect the trademark bass-heavier sounds peppered with plenty of more eclectic, melodious elements, glitch-hop and more.
Of course there's also Jack & Jone's infamous All Star Jam taking place at the store for all the show-me-the-empty-end-of-a-bottle crew. If you make it in, the bar is open and the night is always young. As for the lineup, it's probably one of their best so far. Industry veterans Monica Dogra, Suman Sridhar, Neel Adhikari and Ananda Sen will be taking the stage.
Evidently, the rain doesn't dampen our spirits much so pick your slice of pie and dig in.
