Daksha_Live1Attended a pub show after a very long time and to be very frank, it was much needed. Live music and booze are an orgasmic combo which I had been missing for a good amount of time. I went to Cheers Crossroads, a live music lounge and there I was delighted to see the interiors filled with posters of classic rock bands. The band that was playing that evening was Daksha, a Guwahati based five piece outfit. Much to my delight, they started the show with ‘Yellow’ by Coldplay, a song very much close to my heart. They carried on with some of their original numbers in Assamese and suddenly I along with many others were drifted back in time by a cover song of Arun Das. Then followed a few original numbers and then ‘Cocaine’. The crowd danced all the way through the song. The show ended along with my Vodka. And I was drunk more on music than on alcohol.
