UK-based trans-global band Kissmet is tearing up the word music scene right now, and they sent us a video of one of their recent epic performances in Malaysia at Rainforest World Music Fest. We thought we would share some of their media and some info about them in case you’ve never experienced their psychedelic rock x Bhangra vibe.
“Kissmet has taken traditional Bhangra music from the fields of India and fused it seamlessly with Rock (Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, Cream). The result is a pulsating, exciting rollercoaster ride of positive energy from the East to the West and back again.
Kissmet creates a fantastic, interactive experience where the band interacts with, engages with and involves the audience, uniting them and taking them on a wonderful journey from the East to the West and back again. What Kissmet does cannot be replicated by any other artist so you would have a highly exclusive event that would be the perfect addition to your festival, something your audience will remember for years to come.”

Thursday night was OFF ANY AND ALL HOOKS – thanks to everyone who came out! Especially the guy who one of our *unnamed* members chased on the street for violating a basic human right and forced him inside the bar for one chance to repent. You really rep’d Eastern Europe on the dance floor, man.
TONIGHT (Saturday, 9/11) Raphlex & Mishka will take over the Ice Cage… be there!
In case you need a hint, this Yelp.com review of Mehanata on a Thursday night summarizes our party pretty well.
I looked around in amusement at everyone dancing like crazy, women serving drinks in Russian uniforms, the movie Devdas playing and I thought WTF is going on in here??? (source)
