Live From The Console Back On The Scene
5 June 2014
Following a worryingly long hiatus, Mehboob Studio’s monthly indie music party - Live at The Console is back with some electrifying new acts from the nation. They’ve had some great performances in the last few years and 7 June isn’t likely to disappoint with live performances by Delhi based garage/dance band Mosko, upcoming electro-folk outfit Nicholson and Sasha Chettri, an alternative pop artist from the hills of Dehradun.
The evening will begin early with a screening of the film 'Shut Up And Play The Hits' – a 2012 documentary directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace that covers the legendary LCD Soundsystem’s final gig at Madison Square Garden, following their frontman James Murphy over a 48-hour period. You can take a look at the trailer here.
The screening will be followed by the folk sounds of Sasha Chettri – a singer-songwriter who draws her inspiration from the hills she grew up in and a range of music that covers everything from jazz and sufi to punk rock and pahadi folk, all of which she incorporates in her music.
Mumbai based singer-songwriter and pianist, Nicholson will be performing next. The ‘electro-organic’ artist has had a busy month after a massive debut performance alongside Sandunes at the NCPA experimental theatre, and a release of his haunting first EP – 'For What'. His music is rich, lyrical and heavily influenced by jazz, folk and electronic sounds. The band consists of electronic duo Dirty Jays, and producer/drummer Rohan Ramanna.
The final performance of the night comes from Delhi based duo Mosko, comprising Kavya Trehan and Moses Koul. They’ve had very successful live performances in Delhi and performed at Ragasthan earlier this year. They haven’t shared any sounds online yet but you can expect to hear an upbeat mix of electronica and acoustic jams.
There’s something for everyone and more than anything, we’re excited about Live From The Console’s return to the scene - here’s hoping they have a lot more shows in the not-so-distant future.
