UnBox 2013: “Less of a conference, more of a festival”


UnBox Festival has returned this year and with a new approach: “Less of a Conference, More of a Festival”.

Understanding The Indie Underbelly Of Madras


“The thing about those guys”, the scrawny club owner said to me, “is that they come out of nowhere with a great album, and everyone goes nuts. And then their parents ship them off to college, and you never hear of them again.” It was a breezy evening in Bangalore, and the gig I had come to watch had gone down well: the man was obviously pleased with his club’s prospects, and this made him open up to me. We’d carried on a bit about the Indian scene, and some of the problems that come with hosting live music that was still largely a novelty in the country. And then, I had brought up the subject of bands from Chennai.

Review: Snoop Dogg in Pune

Snoop Dogg live in Amanora Park Town/ Pune, Jan.11th 2013

Halfway through Friday night’s Snooptacle they played Hero (I’m not sure that’s the actual title of the song, or really care), and the Lion began to shuffle around the stage like a pubescent cub, as expressionless as endearing.
