  • Gasoline
    The band performed with members from young Kolkata act The Suitables, belting out covers including 'Proud Mary'. The band's stage presence and Satyajit Chatterji's guitar chops made up for what seemed like lack of practice.

  • Ifs And Buts
    Young acoustic pop duo Ifs And Buts are familiar faces to the Kolkata audience, and their fresh set, with tracks like 'Nobody's Town' and 'February', were quite well-received.

  • Suyasha Sengupta
    The band served up fresh tracks, including 'Dancing Dancing' and 'Style', which vocalist Suyasha Sengupta added was probably the "macha-est" song they'd ever do. Check out some of Sengupta's solo work here.
