Pineapple Express - Live at Fandom

We wholeheartedly believe that we have some of the best fans anyone could ask for. And no other place drives this point home than a public show in Namma Bengaluru! Our last public gig of the year happened to be on a Saturday as well, much to everyone's joy and relief and what a gig it turned out to be! We kicked things off with a private screening of our music video 'Anthem' for the attendees a good two weeks before its public launch. What followed was over two hours of the signature Pineapple Express audio-visual experience, with some never before played tracks and a few tracks we don't play live very often.

We were thoroughly surprised at people singing our compositions back to us loud and clear! Like we said, our fam is the best fam!

The audience were still asking for more when we were done with our set, refusing to leave until we gave them one last song, but we had to bid them goodbye for the night with the promise of another fun evening on another day, complete with their favourite songs as well as a couple of new songs.

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.
