The four outfits that the big bands vouch for, as the next names youa��ll see on billboards acrossA� the nation.
The Fish Eyed Poets
a�?Chennai sometimes feels like the biggest small town in the world. If bands (like us) produce quality original music, with the right amount of hype and guaranteed consistent performances, they can secure bookings outside of the state.a�?
a��Kishore Krishna, singer/songwriter
The Broadway Addicts
a�?We stayed true to our punk rock roots and it paid off when an indie label, ennui.BOMB featured our tracks on their popular annual compilation called Stupidities. This resulted in some great D-I-Y gigs in Mumbai, which was great exposure.a�?
a��Srinivas ATV, vocalist
a�?Regardless of venues being real or virtual (think YouTube), keep playing till you get noticed. We approached the few remaining stand-alone venues like Bay 146, after winning multiple band contests, and they agreed. Learn to become your own promoter,.a�?
a��Vikram Vivekanand, guitarist
got the Funk
a�?Time management is key. The band stays busy with studio work (as it pays the bills). But with the help of a few agents, wea��ve planned a four-city promo tour to push our new tune Sunset Boulevard.a�?
a��Bjorn Surrao, vocals
