Yay Ro Smith

Things to do before Aerosmith concert in Bangalore:

1. Curse DNA networks for obscene ticket prices.
2. Curse Aerosmith for coming to India at age 107.
3. Curse fate for being the only freak who didnt get free tickets.
4. Call all the cool people you know for free tickets.
5. Call semi-cool people for free tickets.
6. Call mortal enemies for free tickets.
7. Call gardener's wife for free tickets.
8. Call the single person you know who works for DNA 150 times, take out to drinks, press foot and watch them walk away saying "I left DNA last year, but listen, we must hang out again." with smirk on face.
9. Enter every single "Win a free ticket" concert on Radio Indigo.
10. Give up translating "Jaded" into malayalam in order to win "sing Aerosmith in any language" competition.
11. Buy Aerosmith double CD with every song composed by them and their extended families.
12. Practice making gaspy catfish faces in the mirror while singing "Crazy".
13. Spend a frantic night mugging up lyrics to look cool at concert.
14. Plan clothes that look better wet than dry (its raining, men, in Bangalore).
15. Rush to Palace Grounds in sheer desperation an hour before concert to buy tickets which in all probability will be sold out.


ANYBODY has tickets? I will do foot massaging for 1 month.

Here I am stuck in a whole different city, with the prospect of coming to work on the very day Aerosmith will play!

I know this one is too late, but I just surfed into your blog ;-)

I drove down from Hyderabad directly into Palace grounds to watch the genrontology act. It took me around 9 hours. Strangely enough, it took me longer than that to drive down to my parent's place at Marathahalli, after the concert!! ;-)

What has happened to B'lore traffic da?

Bikerdude said...

Err lucifer, it took you over 9 hours to get from palace grounds to marthahalli? Did you push your car all the way there?

But I completely understand your angst at Blore traffic, considering youre from Hyderabad! Uff what a roads there I say! Pls read posting on same subject :)

lucifer_layne said...

Would've been faster, if I ditched my car and walked, I guess!! Hosa Civic and all, so I thought I'd chill ;-) Took me 2 bloody hours just to drive outta Palace grounds, maga!!

Hmm, I did see your post on HYD. Some meanie things you said, and some nice stuff about the city I've been calling home for around 7 years now. Still contemplating whether to thupp or be nice ;-)

I'll be back!!

Bikerdude said...

Yeah man bad idea parking in Palace Grounds for a concert- its been the same situation from the 90s. Grid locked traffic for hours while getting out. Best is to park a km away in one of the Vasantnagar bylanes. Full civic and all uh - too much boss ;)

Reg Hyd: aiyo what I say- Jushtu full kaampliments wonly I hawe givennu.
