Newton Faulkner To Perform In Mumbai This Month
Despite the sweltering heat, May is turning out to be a busy month for international music acts. Following Penn Masala, Lucy Rose and Justin Bieber is Newton Faulkner. (It’s turned out to be a big day for gig announcements.) The British singer-songwriter will play this year’s edition of 501 Day, an annual celebration on May 20 by denim brand Levi’s to mark the “invention” of its 501 line of blue jeans. American ‘future house’ trio Autograf will co-headline the show with a DJ set. The gig will take place at recently reopened music venue Razzberry Rhinoceros in Juhu. The rest of the line-up is made up of Ahmedabad post-rock band aswekeepsearching; Delhi electro-rock band Mosko; and four Mumbai electronic music DJ-producers, EZ Riser aka Sohail Arora, M.Mat aka Mathieu Josso, Sid Vashi and Zokhuma aka Arman Menzies. Entry is free and requires an RSVP via Insider.in.
501 Day will be held from 4.30pm at Razzberry Rhinoceros, Juhu Hotel, near Mahesh Lunch Home, Juhu. Tel: 74004 02604. Open daily, from noon to 1am. Get directions here.
