Grunge over coffee. Now that is real Alternative.
Microtone, the five member band from Hyderabad, helps break Grunge into the music scene with its concert today evening at Barista. They are one year old but the numbers they will play are timeless – Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam and Audio Slave are few of the legends who are part of their repertoire.
Anupam and Nihar on the guitars, Akshay on the bass guitar, drummer Hemang, and vocalist Tabeer are going to thrum their way into your hearts in the swishy interiors of Barista. If that is not an off-beat experience, what is? But then, off-beat was the essence of Alternative when it burst forth into the scene in the 1980s.
So watch Microtone playing today and discover the Hyderabadi way of experiencing it. Who knows, we may be on the verge of another genre soon enough.
