LBG 'Casio G Shock Rocks' @ LOR, Bangalore!!

After a week break, LBG were back to 'ROCK' Bangalore AT LOR. LOR a.k.a 'Legends Of Rock' is a three story Rock pub at Koramangala which also had LCD plasma screens (Like 'Le Rock') playing only rock videos. It also had a surveillance camera that showed LBG performing at 2 levels It was the same week-end Deep Purple were performing, so the place was packed!! …The energy really burst out when LBG hit stage with the 'Debated' drumroll of 'We wont fall Down' and played a power packed 1 hour show. Same set list as before only this time they started with 2 songs from their first album namely Wrong & Revolution. Lots of Albums sold, with the fans wanting their autographs( some even hoping to sell for millions in the future!!LOL)

After party at Prathap's Place… It was a typical 'Lotsa Booze & G' party. The women were steaming and the babies were sleeping(well atleast they were trying to)!! heh heh

December 1st
LBG ROX 'Yamaha Roxx' @ Le Rock, Bangalore!!

After showing the video & the album to club owner, Ashish Kothari ( LOR & Le rock) things just got better for the band as they got thier first break to play at Bangalore. Arriving in the morning, the band headed straight for the venue to be amazed by the kind of place it was!!


At Le Rock there are only plasma screens playing DVD rock videos all day(awesome concept!! \m/). The best part was that everyone seemed to know who they were especially the waiters who had seen the 'Basics of Life' video so many times ::lol:: Gig went off fairly well.... few sound hitches, but by mid way through the set, the band really rocked the crowd as it ended with 'Basics of life' followed by the video. The surprising part was when the crowd asked for an encore, that too only prepared with a 11 song set. A request for 'Codiene' from their first album was obliged and the night ended with a Bang!!(heh heh no pun intented)

LBG got on stage at around 8:30 and had a tough time for the first 5 songs due to technical difficulties and 'slight' intoxication (It was Pondy after all!!). but that was all forgotten after LBG started 'Money' which had the crowd dancing and singing along for the next 7 songs. LBG thanks Joe & Tapan for a show well organised and for their great hospitality.
