the curtain goes up tonight :)

Remember the school when we had those 'Match the following' questions. Take that analogy and put it against some of Bangalore's best musical talent and songs that will rock your brains out and you'll find an eclectic mix of legendary music.

This tuesday catch some of opus' best voices belting it out at Opus to tunes of artistes such as sting, billy joel, dave mathews, eric clapton, scorpions, white lion, jack johnson and other such legends.

Opus rockstars Andy, Anoopa Anand, Carlton Braganza, Mark Lazaro (karma 6) ,Malliga, Venkat Subramanyam & Jordan Menzel
The singers are accompanied by Vivek Menzel, Gaurav Vaz (raghu dixit project), Christopher Rodriguez , Herbert Paul & Jason Zachariah

Week 8: Andy is dandy
You know that irritating thing about television that makes us think our lives are not good enough? Perfect moments, perfect timing, perfect teeth, perfect brea…kfasts. You get the drift. But when that sort of thing happens before your very eyes, and you haven’t even had a delusion-friendly amount to drink, you realize that art indeed imitates life.
That also brings me to the end of a fairly long relationship that I’ve shared with this blog. I first wrote here right at the end of Season 1, and haven’t stopped since. It’s going to be strange not to be here for the rest of this season. But I will try and survive on news I’m sure I’ll get from friends. It’s been an honour and a pleasure to spend week after week getting badgered by Carlton to write now, write now!
Have a great season, all the best and may the crown belong to the most passionate.
