Rocking out with chicken changezi....

Hmmm had one of my best night outs in delhi... thats about 1.5 years of my existence.
first of all got a good roomie, tito, my senior at college as well as a great guy he will be my roomate till ...
after that around 8 went over to pragati maidan for the concert.. didint have much clue ...knew that iqbal and orange street are performing ...so thought would cheer up imran .... th enviro was good the place had close to 2k people ...packed in a chilled december night...was impressed coz i didnt even expect this much from delhi....the show started off with the nu-metal band called pin drop violence (PDV)....had heard abt them in the RSJ and that they put up a good show on the GIR....so was happy to know that they will be opening the act....they sounded good.. though tthe question wether i enjoyed it remains hmmm a question coz im not that fod of thrash... so enjoyed being in a super charged crowd.... my friends shibli,tito,jay,diwakar n all...hmmm they were circumspect......what the f*&&^ ...yeh kya bakwaas hain ? can u understand what the heck the bloody sob is shouting out ? .....all and more after the break....
but just when my eyes fell on the bald lead guitarist vispy i got pissed , what in the name of &***())) , is he doin ? the buggers removed his tee and putting his Flea look alike act ... as if they are RHCP ....boy not in a million years of evolution.....
ok after 5 or 6 years PDV gave way for orange street ... lemme be honest and declare my seemingly biased opinion...the vocalist on the band who sings hindustani classical is a good friend of mine, imran khan....oh not the oxford blues pathan sppedster.....this one happens to be a more kiddish version and one ....the guy is a prodigy and is acknowledged to be a likely great in the time to come.......ok hmm regarding the cincert they sounded good but i guess they found it hard to gain the crowd support mainly becoz it was geared for a more fast paced stuff and these guys had more a mish mash stuff.... so by the time they worked up their pacer their would be a dholak or a classical piece which would dramatically bring down the pace .....ok this might work with an audience tired of death metal and thrash ..probably why OS is getting good reviews in europe than in india....
