G2…LIVE! @ Arc Asia

G2...LIVE! @ Arc AsiaA Brainchild of Guitar player and Song writer, Jiten Shende, G2 Live has its roots in a 1990’s band called ‘Just Chill’ which featured a host of musicians, S Jayant (Uncle crow, Shankara, smokestack), Prasanna Chitnis (GIT grad), Koco (Agni), Vijay Joshi (Strangers, RLA) Sonu Sangameshwaran & Dilip (MPD) and played jam cover versions of pink Floyd, Deep purple, Guns N Roses, Hendrix, Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyd and many other 70’s rock bands primarily at Jazz Garden at ‘Bacardi Batstage’. The G2 Trio was born in 2008 with Randhir Dange (Trees on Fire, Swastika, Livewire) on drums, Sunderajan (Trees on Fire, moons beans)/Jackie Panicker (Strange brew, Funky Kurtas) on Bass. The band pretty much started off as a jam band mainly playing Clapton, SRV, Buddy Guy, BB King & JJ Cale. This band did a lot of gigs at local Pune venues and private shows spreading their music and love to like-minded people. Concurrently, G2 toured all over south east asia to places like Singapore, Bangkok, Cambodia etc. playing with local bands in the pub scene.

Bacardi Untameable presents Ganesh Talkies

Bacardi Untameable presents Ganesh TalkiesNamed as one of the ‘top acts to watch out for in 2013’ by Rolling Stone India, Ganesh Talkies is the dance music cousin of Bollywood via Indian indie. The Talkies blends alt-rock, reggae, ska and pop in a funky, twisted brew peppered with influences culled from cinema. The result is Bollywood’s quirk, cool and extreme kitsch meeting a dance-heavy ethos in the band’s sound and live vibe. Like a movie plot, GT songs tell stories; stories that unfold collectively to make the whole picture. Where: High Spirits, Koregaon Park Time: 09:00 pm – 11:30 pm

Reading Challenge 2014: Mythical Maze

Reading Challenge 2014- Mythical MazeThe Reading Challenge is a massive reading promotion programme for children and young people. It is conceptualised by The Reading Agency in collaboration with the Arts Council England and the BBC and now runs in libraries and schools all over the world. Every year it comes with a new exciting theme. This year’s theme is Mythical Maze, which challenges children aged 5 to 13 to find their way around a labyrinth that introduces them to fantastical creatures from the world of legend and mythology. Children are invited to take up a simple challenge where they read books and are rewarded for reading. There are also 3 workshops linked to the challenge, which will be fun, stimulating and support the reading activity. Books are available for display in the library from Children’s day onward. Those who complete the challenge are presented with a certificate, which gives them a real sense of achievement. Where: The British Council Library Time: 11:00 am For more details:
