Sorry about the earlier announcement. The Firangi Paani has been moved from Bandra to Andheri. Still, you can make October 19, a Tuesday night like no other. Dump your boss (and his wife) for a stash of funny money.
Birthdays, believes Bruce Lee Mani, guitar player and vocalist for Thermal And A Quarter, are to celebrate happiness.
“But we’ll save that for tomorrow,” he says on his 33rd.
Every day should be a happy birthday for love. As artists, that should be the mission fuelling our activism — to spread the message of love and peace in the world to everyone, to bring estranged people together, to shape the change that lies trapped inside our hearts. And not lose ourselves in cynicism.
If need be, we must cross one line to draw another.
Last year, Bruce wrote the lyrics of ‘One Small Love’ and put it to music with his band, Thermal And A Quarter. Join him and Thermal And A Quarter with other artists, speakers and thinkers on the song’s first anniversary.
‘One Small Love – Bangalore for Mangalore’, an assertion of liberty, love and happiness, celebrates the birthday of love.
Feb 14, Opus in the Creek, Whitefield Road, Bangalore.
Be there to draw the line. And spread the love.
Moral policing threatens not just artists, musicians and performers but audiences as well, as it robs them of their right to be informed and entertained in accordance with their choice.
That’s the view expressed by Martin D’Souza, an artist and advertising professional who has called Bangalore home for 24 years.
Join Martin and other concerned Bangaloreans as they come together for ‘One Small Love – Bangalore for Mangalore’, a celebration of the spirit of freedom and tolerance with music, food and free speech. Musicians Konarak Reddy, Allwyn Fernandes, Gaurav Vaz, Ravi Kulur, Gerard Machado, Karan Joseph and Swarathma will join Thermal And A Quarter at the concert on Feb 14, 2010 at Opus in the Creek, Whitefield Road, Bangalore.
Draw the line. Spread the love.
Attend the concert on February 14. Entry is free.
