Red Bull Tour Bus is all set to make some noise in Ahmedabad on October 10th 2013 at MICA. Music lovers are invited to catch the opening act by three-piece alternative rock band Unohu; followed by indie music stalwarts from Kolkata The Supersonics are taking centre-stage and performing on the rooftop of the stage on wheels.
In a unique east meets west and north meets south experience, the Red Bull Tour Bus will take bands to new geographies. The idea is to introduce music lovers to new emerging bands, and give bands a chance to create new legions of fans.The bus will also be a stage at all four Bacardi NH7 Weekenders across India – Pune, Bangalore, Delhi, and Kolkata.
So what makes the Red Bull Bus so special?
The first of its kind in India, Red Bull Tour Bus transforms into a complete sound stage. The bus was built beam by beam from a chassis. Taking approximately 2250 man-hours to build, it converts into a concert stage fully equipped with a sound system, lights and everything else needed for that awesome gig experience. When it hits the road, it features a gaming console, a flat screen TV, a mini work station, eight bunk beds, twelve seats, a combination of hardwood floors and an equipment storage area. In an estimated 3-4 hours, the bus transforms from a typical 36-foot-long vehicle to a full out custom rock stage.
Date & time: 10th October 2013, 7.00pm onwards
Venue: MICA, Mudra Institute of Communications, Ahmedabad
Free entry: Kindly display valid college and photo id.
Formed in March 2012, Unohu is a three-piece alternative rock band based in Mumbai. The band initially began with brothers, SarthakKarkare (Vocals and guitar) and ShashwatKarkare (Drums), jamming in their room. The third member, YohannCoutinho (Bass), joined the duo after meeting SarthakKarake in college. Their single “Caught Between A Rock And Your Face” featured on Stupiditties 666: Satan Lives! Released by indie label ennui. BOMB. Their influences include the likes of progressive rock bands Porcupine Tree and Karnivool and alt rockers Incubus.
Unsuspecting post punk rockers from Kolkata, mostly quiet otherwise but a riot on stage, The Supersonics reunited last year to much surprise and relief. Formed in the year 2006, the quartet put one of the most stellar Indian indie debuts with Maby Baking (2009). Ever since their reunion, the band have been writing new material, gigging way more than before and are in the process of writing their new and fair to say highly awaited follow-up album. Sticking to their rock n’ roll, punk sensibilities, there’s hardly a better fit for the RedBullTourBus, than these boys from the City of Joy.
