The 2Stroke tour, which has Indian bands on a whirlwind tour of the country, makes its way to Bengaluru this weekend. This edition features the Mumbai outfit, Goddess Gagged. “Bands in India don’t really go on tour as much as bands in the West do,” says Uddipan Sarmah the man behind the tour that promises to be a new chapter in Indian music. “The challenge comes with finding venues,” he adds.
Goddess Gagged, best described as progressive rock with an edge, is playing at seven cities in 10 days. “It gets a bit hectic,” says Krishna Jhaveri, the bassist. “We have had early morning flights and long drives after late night shows. But it is so much fun and that keeps us going.” The concert will also have sets by Chennai’s Tails on Fire and Bengaluru’s Diarchy.
Tomorrow, 9 pm. At the Humming Tree, Indiranagar. Tickets (Rs 400)
