Here’s what happened when you missed ‘The Alien Chutney’ gig at Counterculture, Bangalore!
A long while ago, I had the great privilege of shooting Vir Das and his band, ‘The Alien Chutney’ at Counterculture. The entire night went by with everyone jumping to the music and laughing incessantly over the jokes that Vir Das and the band seemed to have an endless supply of.
The last time I had been at an Alien Chutney performance was at the first year of the Weekender in Bangalore, in 2012. After having witnessed them in two contrasting set-ups – a large scale festival setting and an indoor gig venue, I must say that the band does know how to pull off a clean show with the same amount of energy and enthusiasm.
While I was looking to clean-up some space on my hard-disks, I came across the photos of Vir Das in all his glory and since I never really got around to sharing these images on any social platform so I think this is the best time to put them on the website and recreate those memories of Counterculture and that brilliant gig!
