  • Reinhardt Dias
    Dias plays lead for Blakc. In the semi-acoustic, semi-live setup, the band sounded much tighter in the electric parts than in the opening acoustic bit.

  • Blakc
    The grunge rockers, who've been active since 2006, are working on their sophomore album. We spoke to Anish Menon, guitarist of the band, about it. Stay tuned for an interview.

  • Light Setup
    The light setup was interesting at the Frog last night. The variations didn't allow too many close-ups of the band members, which changed quickly as Indus Creed came on. PS: It was also bassist Roop's birthday! Have a good one!

  • Uday Benegal
    Benegal is the frontman of what Blue Frog defined as the "pioneers of rock n' roll" in India. The band sounded way better than their previous performance at the JD Rock Awards 2012, but retained their brand of synth-heavy '80s pop-rock.

  • Indus Creed
    The rock vets from Mumbai recently reunited, and are releasing their new album, Evolve, on Universal Records. The announcement was made during the performance.

  • Zubin Balaporia
    The reticent Balaporia plays keys for the band, and was almost hidden during the entirety of the gig.

  • Sheldon D'Silva
    D'Silva filled in for original bassist Rushad Mistry last night. He played an extended bass solo during the encore which warranted this shot.

  • Jai Row Kavi
    Vasanth, as he's known nowadays, plays drums in the band's new lineup and was his usual, excellent self behind the kit.
