On the 17th of March, we had the honour and pleasure of playing a pub gig for our home fans in Bangalore after a long time.
The venue was Fandom at Gilly's Redefined with an early set by Haiku-Like Imagination.
Haiku-kicked things off with their intricate brand of math rock, dishing out tight guitar harmony lines combined with groovy basslines and drum grooves.
A ten-minute change-up between the two bands saw the crowd wait in eager anticipation as Pineapple Express took the stage, all set for a two hour journey through modern progressive fusion interspersed with a few audience favourites.
The crowd was super fun to play for and we had the experience of our lives on stage playing for them, better than any other pub show we'd played in the past. Magic happens when the artist and the crowd connect and that is exactly what happened. While the crowd hummed and danced through some popular AR Rahman, Tamil and Kannada covers, they were absolutely with us when we played our originals, grasping the complex genre and time-bending elements we put into our music.
It was also a very special gig for us because we announced the release of our debut EP 'Uplift' for which we sold a few exclusive limited physical copies at the gig.
We'd like to thank everyone involved in making this event a memorable one for us. Fandom is undoubtedly one of the best, if not the best venue in the country right now and we look forward to playing there again sometime in the future.
