Nikhil Warekar, an extreme metal fan, went to the Black-Metal-meets-Indian-classical-dance event at NCPA, and this is what he has to say
You’d expect the Kathak/Bharatnatyam troupe to move with the pace of the music, but they were doing some slow-mo shit. Fuck that!
And then in the middle of the show, you all of a sudden hear ecological/environmental concerns being expressed. “Save water”, “Nobody seems to care…”, “Blah-blah-blah” – well, fuck me.
Firdous (Khan, who was with me) had called the lady at NCPA and the bitch told him cameras weren’t allowed, and it was mentioned on the passes as well, so he didn’t carry one. But we saw a white chick with a video cam and a bunch of retards with DSLRs. Sab chalta hai, I guess.
Bhenchod, another thing – the tabalchis were muttering ‘tak dhina dhin’ when Vreid was playing their song… so fucking funny, bro… it sure was entertaining.
Rukmini Chatterjee (the artsy choreographer who planned this shit) doesn’t believe in fusion, but in the meeting of cultures and art forms. I’m trying to think of a funny example of the “meeting of cultures”, but Questionings is the funniest one. What next – death metal and dandiya?
So what really happens is, Vreid plays a song, and then the Bharatnatyam bitches tell them to fuck off or just stand there doing nothing while they (the BN bitches) dance. Both the parties should have been embarrassed, but no – they were into it as if they were doing something extraordinary!
A dancer went in front of the guitarist, revolved around me with a weird stare, and then went away in a supposedly graceful manner. What the fuck, slut… how silly.
At one point, three Norwegian dudes surrounded this hot BN dancer and were headbanging and playing… all excited and shit… goddamn shit was fucking funny, bro.
Abey, bhenchod… a few poseurs from the scene came there with some more hipsters. I don’t hate them, but well, they are hipsters, and they’re fucking dumb as well. Unn log ko bahot pasand aaya yeh sab chutiyapa. Headbang vagera kar rahe the, full on. Aur ek banda tha front row mein… he was so into this shit, bro… as if he were possessed… full headbanging chalu tha uska. Aur ek budhdha baittha tha uske baaju mein… bhenchod, 70+ age group wale log bhi the.
If you’re interested in turning your brain into a hybrid version of paneer and Norwegian cheese, I encourage you to go for this shit.
