Growler girls

Fancy a round of rowdy rock­ing to death metal? Ladies, get in an ex­clu­sive pit de­signed just for you. As hard­core band-cum-en­ter­tain­ers Scribe roar their way through their set, you can rough it out with fel­low metal heads, less un­ruly, but equally badass in the all-girls-mosh­pit. “It's quite a de­light to watch girls rock out like that, and they re­ally get into it. Girls pull in other girls. It's very cool,” says Vish­wesh Kr­ish­namoor­thy, vo­cal­ist of Scribe.

Dogs of rock

Find­ing re­spon­si­ble pet-sit­ters in Mum­bai is a hard work. But why leave your doggie at home, when he can go out and play at the hap­pi­est mu­sic fes­ti­val. Legally. The Bac­ardi NH7 Week­ender has tied up with In­dia’s lead­ing canine events com­pany Party Barky Hai to en­sure that your pooch en­joys the fes­ti­val just as much as you do. The venue will be dot­ted with dog-friendly zones near the stages and you can take your dogs along while you check out the acts.

Watch out

Why should your au­di­tory senses have all the fun? This year, the or­gan­is­ers are pro­vid­ing a spe­cial treat for your eyes too. Vis­ual Jock­eys will take the stage along with DJs and bands to throw up graph­ics to go with the mu­sic. When asked what VJ San­tana (San­tana Is­sar) plans to do visu­ally, she said, “Make peo­ple stare at the screen un­til they're slack-jawed and glassy-eyed.”

Bac­ardi NH7 Week­ender is on from Oc­to­ber 18 to 20 in Pune. Tick­ets are avail­able on book­myshow.com.
