Opening act by Gravy Train band followed by October band performance.
Germinating in 2007, October is a musical hybrid of the modern genres of alternative and progressive rock layered with psychedelia, expressed through the collective musical meeting ground of its six members - Shantanu 'Shanty' Sudarshan on drums, Jeffrey Laloo on bass, backing vocals, Rohan Panjiar on guitars, Shashvat Pandit on guitars and Amitabh Mukherjee on vocals.
They consider narrowing a band down to a genre as musical racism; therefore they strive to combine anything and everything that cools their beans. A completely secular musical orgy if you will, with its members bringing their unique musical influences to create a sound reflective of the band's gritty and stark look at its surroundings. They almost completely always believe in playing their original compositions with no regard to the number of cries of 'smoke on the water'. The reason why they named their band 'October' is a well kept secret within the band, and they do not wish to divulge it any time soon. Talk to their mascot (gopi) for details.
October was declared Runners up at IIT Kanpur 2008 Synchronicity, 3rd place at BITS Pilani 2009 and has taken part in several other competitions such as IIT Mumbai Mood Indigo as well as played in college festivals at Miranda House, JMC and DCAC. October released its debut album - Defeat the Question on 19th Dec, 2010 at GIR, Delhi where they opened for Meshuggah, Undying Inc and Lucid Recess.
