Reading Time: 3 minutes

Indie rock band ‘The Local Train’ returned to Manipal, less than a year after performing at Revels, to perform at Nawaazish ’17, a public concert organised by the Rotaract Club of Manipal.

The Local Train’s popularity in Manipal skyrocketed when they performed at Revels last year. It was enough to convince the organisers to recall them for a second live performance at the MIT Quadrangle || Photograph Courtesy: Julius Pereira


Even the MIT Director was seen sporting event T-Shirt. “I had my apprehensions in inviting The Local Train again because bands don’t usually come back to the place they have performed so soon, but they accepted our request and we are thrilled to have them here”, he said before the band took the stage. || Photograph Courtesy: Niharika Nayak

The band even recorded the crowd going along to the chorus of their new song, in the hope of including it in the upcoming album. Here, guitarist Paras Thakur has eyes only for the guitar|| Photograph Courtesy: Julius Pereira
