The rains played spoilsport and most of the tables remained vacant. But the show must go on and it did, even if it was just for an hour.

The gig was held to promote their video and the single My Life. This interesting video, created by Abhinav Tripathi, seems inspired by the video of the American progressive band Tool. What one must appreciate about the band us that the video is being released under a Creative Common License. In fact P Dev says, “the entire album is going to be under CCPL (Creative Common Public License).”

Their debut album which is being readied for release has a unique history.

The band composed and recorded the song and let the fans pick the tracks that would ultimately be on the album through a voting campaign.

Once on stage, P Dev got the small but enthusiastic crowd going. “Stand up and dance if you feel like it. ‘Coz this is a democracy and this is a rock and roll concert,” he said. His voice was strong and composed even as he head-banged and gyrated. Even a bullhorn was used to add to the vocals. The bassist Clarence Gonsalves merits a special mention.
Shwetha Jairam, an audience member, said of the band. “I don’t know if it’s nervousness but they are very tight as a band.” She did however go on to say, “they do have some interesting progression.”

Over all, the heavier tracks by the band were better than the softer ballets. One of the songs, the band performed had four guitars, even if you loved strings, this might have been a bit much for you. The only other instrument was the drums.”

In all fairness though, the event had to be ended by 10.30 pm. That gave the musicians only an hour of on-stage time. The performance might have scored higher had the band been allowed to perform their entire set and there were more audience cheering them on.
