Hurricane in town

Ever since its song ‘Monster’ was featured on the chart-blasting soundtrack of the vampire movie, Twilight: New Moon, Hurricane Bells has not been just another American rock band. In India, its Mac-wielding frontman Steve Schiltz will perform with Ashen on background vocals, Morgan on electric bass and Travis on drums.

Hurricane Bells will play on Friday, January 29 at the Hard Rock Cafe, and on Saturday, January 30 at The Ashok, Chanakyapuri. Entry is free.


For women all over

Come Together’, a mini fest organised by Commotion, a charitable trust that works with the youth, has pulled a few strings to put up an event that will highlight the increasing crimes against Northeasterners.

Lending their voices will be Tony Johnson from New Zealand, Sumir from Nepal, Bonny Andrews from Kerala and a few other musicians from India. The music will be a mixed bag — rock, jazz, urban folk and fusion. Almond Blossom and Eunice Pamei from the Northeast are also part of the show.

The organisers hope that with Republic Day around the corner, the event will be a hit with patriots with or without music in their blood.

Want to do your bit for national integration? Be there.

‘Come Together’ will be held at The Plaza, Select City Walk mall on Saturday, January 23, from 4 pm.


Hola Mexico

What would you like best with crunchy tortilla chips — mild green tomato salsa, a tangy mango dip or a fiery habanero chutney? For licking their long list of salsas, visit Sanchos, the Mexican restaurant that opens today at Connaught Place.

As a minor first in India, the salsa bar will serve six to eight sauces at all times. “We will use seasonal fruits and vegetables,” says Amandeep Singh, Dish Hospitality, the parent company of Sanchos. “Our focus is authentic Mexican food so we’re talking of a spicier cuisine.”

Hand-painted tribal masks and sombreros makes up for the ambience at this cantina where the chefs promise not to Indianise the taste. The Beer Battered Baja California Fish Taquito, Veracruz Fish and Char Grilled Chipotle are our picks.

Head to M-48, Outer Circle, Connaught Place; call at 43623000
