South Side Story

Agam, Thaikuddam Bridge, Masala Coffee...the lineup of BookMyShow’s online concert South Side Story comprises many greats.

Passes are on bookyshow.com

Skill Box described its newest series of livestreams as a “three-day party”. The lineup backs it up, with the likes of EDM leaders Midival Punditz and folk-fusion band The Kutle Khan Project comprising the grand finale on August 23. Other artistes, spread over the evenings of August 21 and 22, are Delhi-based Kaya Trehan, Kavya Komorebi, Curtain Blue and Gaurav Malaker aka Blot!
