Live Music Preview At Hauz Khas Social
10 March 2015
We’ve barely touched March but 2015 has already seen some brilliant performances by both national and international acts. A lot of you may have noticed a refrain popping up at these shows; most of them (FKJ, Kode9, My Nu Leng and a host of homegrown talent) took place at Delhi’s twin hubs – Hauz Khas Social and doppelganger antiSOCIAL.
There are a bunch of exciting live performances lined up for the next couple of weeks at Social, which we’ve rounded up here for your convenience.
The coming weekend will kick off with Levi's ‘501 Friday’ on Friday 13 March, with a live performance by funk and nu disco dance music duo MADBOY/MINK (a.k.a. Imaad Shah and Saba Azad). They will be joined by alternative/indie Chennai based rock outfit The F16s, who were responsible for the stellar ‘Nobody’s Gonna Wait’ EP, which came out last year in December. More information on the event is available here.
SOCIAL’s got you covered on Satuday too with a performance by electronic dance music colossus Nucleya, who’s sure to draw in the throngs for a predictably high-energy performance. You can check out further details for the Stage 42 event here.
The next week will witness a performance by Viennese electro maestros HVOB (Her Voice Over Boys) on Thursday 19 March. The outfit is made up of Anna Muller and Paul Wallner, who perform live with drummer Alexander Schuster. HVOB was voted number 2 in the 'best live act' category by one of the biggest influencers in electronic music – Germany’s "De:bug" magazine – beating off acts like Darkside, Mount Kimbie and Disclosure. HVOB will be supported by the Delhi debut of Nicholson x Fuzzy Logic.
Friday, 20 March will see a DJ set by the increasingly popular producers SOULSPACE, who’s been delivering some quality sounds for the past couple of months. Shillong/Delhi based alternative, self described “matrilineal punk” band Tarik promises to end the month on a high note at Social Sunday on 29 March.
Follow the team on Facebook for regular updates and more information. We’ll see you at Social.
