LINE UP FOR DAY TWO:
5 years ago, Red Bull & Opus kick started a youth-driven live music concept on Monday nights, called Bulls Unplugged, which meant every week, wed have the citys coolest college bands take stage (some, for the first time ever) at Opus and belt out Classic Rock covers, own comps and the like! Some for the first time ever even!
It was for, and by the college kids in town. Were bringing back some of those amazing college bands (now in a grown up avatar) in an epic Reunion, for one night only combining players from Polly Wants A Cracker, Chutney Mary Assassins, Bleed and many more!! We give you BLOODY CRACKERS!
In the later part of the day on July 15th of the year 2006 a bunch of high school graduates decided that they would form a band and make some music to aid their would-be dreary college lives. 6 days later they played their first show at the Unwind center. In an environment of predominantly metal music, this original-rock act got the crowd and went on to play over 100 gigs, and counting. This includes most of the major cities in South India, Mumbai and an independent festival in Reading, England.
After a shortl hiatus to explore their sound following the release of their first studio album called ‘Design’, the band has reformed with a new sound and a new direction.
