RainSeed 2: TownsEnd, Yelahanka; Saturday, December 6

The second edition of The RainSeed Festival (hopefully, this time, the weather will be crisp, cold and clear) will find Thermal And A Quarter, Bangalore's favourite rock act, sharing stage for the first time with Antaragni, on December 6, 2003, Saturday, at TownsEnd, Yelahanka. Another eco-village on the lines of Trans-Indus, TownsEnd provides the perfect ambience for this mostly acoustic show.

Antaragni has made waves for its unique blend of Indian folk, and for the instantly recognizable vocal style of frontman Raghu. Featuring a revolving cast of stellar musicians, this is one group that is always a treat to watch live. As the opening act for Bryan Adams in Bangalore (2001), Antaragni acquired an even larger following. Currently, the lineup has Raghu on guitar and vocals, Allwyn Fernandes on guitar, mandolin, khomak, oud and percussion, Josy John on bass, and Gopinath on drums and percussion.

Also on the bill is stand-up comic Ashvin Matthew, a self-confessed 'clown at home, and generally all through life.' Ashvin studied drama in Sydney, Australia, where he honed his comic talents working as a waiter in a restaurant. He also studied radio and television production in Cyprus, where he seriously did the university, pub and festival comedy circuits. With recent performances at Sparks and various corporate events, he's all set to split those sides.

Put that on your to-do list for this weekend: Saturday, December 6, 2003 at TownsEnd, Yelahanka. 8 pm onwards. Donor passes at Rs 100 available at the venue. Be sure to spread the word.
