In Pictures: Tough On Tobacco, Indubious @ Blue Frog, Mumbai

  • Tough On Tobacco
    Mumbai alt-rock regulars Tough On Tobacco were apparently going to play a special reggae set at the Lower Parel venue on Thursday, February 7.

    The hour-long set wasn't quite as reggae as expected and included material from their (now, forever) upcoming second record, Big, Big Joke.
