Vin’s Mang/Udupi escapade: Part 1…

22Oct09 : Initiation

Me in office, working on my iMac and suddenly my cell blinks “1 Message received”, I just read that message and it was from Vinay(my great friend, my ex-roomie, works for Toyota… 😉 blah blah)…

“Dude, what If I come down to Udupi this weekend..?? Are you free…?”

“Fucking shit dude, you come down anytime here… Anyhow on Friday  night there is “Blaze” battle of bands in manipal where eXiled will perform”, I replied…

Now I forgot my project, issues and other stuff and waited for Vinay’s reply… then got a reply from Vin… “Dude, got a leave on friday so leaving tonight to Udupi”…

Aila, I couldn’t believe this for a min as Vin(nick name for Vinay Pateel) coming down here… then I got fucking excited as it is Vin who is coming down… I know the weekend gonna be hell and mailed my friends in office bout Vin…

One of them immediately replied, “Let’s book a table in Downtown on sat”… Thats call an attitude

Later Vin made sure he will book ticket for Thursday night bus to Udupi… He also mentioned his health is bad due to B shifts and traveling… So I was ready to receive him here for friday morning and I started my work again…

Out of a sudden he messages me… “Dude I’m coming down via bike(he has RX 135…) will leave early morning is that fine..??” I told him to book a ticket as roads are not proper, even Doc Pradeep(Vin’s friend who stays in Mangalore) told Vin to come bus…

But as usual, Vin will follows his heart(Fuck you motorheart)… Vin dint get convinced and he was ready to come down via bike… Later at night I told my roomies bout Vin and slept thinking bout Vin’s ride to Udupi…

23Octo9: Friday, the journey day

Got up for morning Namaz, saw no message from Vin saying “Dude, left Bangalore… Catch me at 6″… Then for office got up at 8, was excited to receive Vin… No message or call from him, sent a status message to him…

“Dude, I’m sick… That’s why dint left”, Vin replied… My all plans got cancelled, it took few mins for me to realize that… Later told him to take rest and I came to office and started to work.

Then around  a hour later, Vin replied… “Fuck it dude… I’m coming, leaving now”. What..?? That to with bad health, I knew this is Vin… I just agreed to him and started to look for any Volvo buses around 12 to Udupi, as there is a bus to Bangalore from Udupi around 1 pm.

But as according to Murphy’s law there were no Volvo buses during afternoon, not even to Mangalore… So finally Vin started in KSRTC bus, bad luck dude… As even road is not good in between, any how I just wished him Happy journey and started with my plans for weekend considering Vin will join us later.

As on friday night, there was “Blaze – Battle of bands” at Manipal I had planned to attend with Vin. As he is also a metal head, as it was decided Vin cant reach to Udupi around 7 I decided to attend the Blaze alone. As everyone were busy with their office and build stuff…

Around 7.30 I decided to leave Manipal, but Yallappa(YPK) joined me. So me and YPK left for Manipal, now another problem arised on where was that West ind Club.?. I never visited that place, took few mobile numbers from the Facebook event page.

After reaching Tiger circle I called to event organizers to my bad luck no one picked, we went around near MIT and DT but no use. As it was new DT, I thought it is near our beloved Downtown so wanted to give it a shot and left to Downtown, on way I asked a guy. To my goodness, he knew that club and told me the details, it was around 7.50.

I knew eXiled were performing around 8, so made my mind and went. Again missed the route and finally someone suggested the venue and we reached at 8.

eXiled: this is insane…

Looking at the crowd they were half of the crowd of Valley view show, I just left hope bout eXiled already performed as I was late.

eXiled on stage…
eXiled on stage… Full spirit…

Ten mins later, eXiled were on the stage… I felt wow, this is gonna be wild as Mayank took the mike, Tanay and Archit with Guitar’s and Aditto with Drums and Dhawal on Bass… eXiled soundcheck, I really love that… Check, check and fucking check

As soon as eXiled were on stage, crowd started to gather around and started to cheer for eXiled. Wow this is the spirit. eXiled started with Metallica(Dude, frankly speaking I know few metal songs…  even though I dont know the songs, during that live Jamming I feel I know this song). That is a different kind of feeling, cant expressed in terms of words.

People were head banging and for eXiled even girls were… wow, now eXiled started their second song (cant remember which one). But definitely it was cool, I loved it… The drums, strumming and vocals, I got mad and joined the headbanging or cheering crowd… \m/

eXiled in full swing…
eXiled in full swing…

Third song was eXiled‘s own composition, “Black Sunrise“… I heard that song for the 1st time, it was fucking hell… and in between moshing..?? wow, people were just moshing a little and then our vocalist Mayank left the stage and joined moshing… Thats the spirit dude, even crowd  got involved with eXiled

The organizers called for time out, as it was a timed competition(don’t know who won, as I joined in between).

So eXiled were off-stage, but for me it was cool… Was happy for not missing eXiled, Vin messaged he reached Mangalore and will be staying at Doc’s (Pradeep) place, was happy for him as he can take rest…

After eXiled, Chaos(Bangalore based Metal band, death metal) were on stage. Chaos were judge for the event, but for me it was music and people.

Dude, you need to watch Chaos performing on stage. Fucking shit man, the guitarist’s were bare chested and were real metal heads. Their drummer, looked like a normal stud while on stage, once he held the drumstick whole ambience and atmosphere got charged.

And Vocalist..?? Yo man, pretty great… They started with their own compositions and then paranoid and other songs. While performing, you should have seen their flow and crowd cheering… Awesome dude, I still mesmerize the songs… Heard song from Pantera(heard the band name for the 1st time)…

Oops, what a metal night…!!! so finally left the venue at 1045…

Had dinner with YPK at China Valley, and reached room to sleep… (Sleep..?? Its VIn dude…)

Till then, rock dude;


P.S: Can anyone send me the details of Chaos which performed during “Blaze“. I Googled up and Facebook, but found nothing…
