Want to stir up your week with some first-class entertainment? Worry not, for Sandhya Ramachandran has some plans charted out for you.



Are you the paatu-book (Carnatic song book) thumping, raga discovering Classical music enthusiast? Then T.M.Krishna Liveshowis just for you. The show atMusicAcademy on October 25 is all set to be a memorable way to hark in the weekend.

But if you are the comfortably numb towards classical music and prefer your Pink Floyd to your Panthuvarali, then book yourself a ticket to the Pink N Purple Rock Band’s tribute to Pink Floyd and Deep Purple on October 21 at the same venue. They sure are expected to blow some smoke on the water that evening!

If you prefer to beat the blues with some dance, allow the beautiful Shobana to captivate you with her classical dance performance at theMusicAcademy on October 26. Knowing the doe-eyed doyen, it promises to be a scintillating evening.

This Sunday(October 21), head straight to Sir Mutha Venkatasubba Rao Auditorium, to witness the Indian premiere of three pieces (‘Luxuria’, ‘Dog’ and ‘Drift) by the Scottish Dance Theatre (Scotland’s leading national contemporary dance company). And just in case you fall hopelessly in love with their show in Chennai, you can go for an encore at Bangalore on October 25.

Sapta is on for the Score night at Star Rock on October 19. Sapta ( seven) is the name that artist Marti Bharath goes by. With leanings towards electronic base with Western sounds and an Indian/Oriental touch, Friday night sure sounds interesting to us!

If you want a quiet time brooding over your brushes, the Kalamkari workshop   at Dakshinchitra this weekend(October 20 and 21) is your cup of tea (or paint!) Vijaya Kumar, the master craftsman at Dakshinachitra will be teaching this art of painting with vegetable dyes and a bamboo pen on fabrics. So pay up your Rs.1500 fee and book yourself a place to get arty, this weekend.

We are glad that someone let Vir Das out, for he is in town with ‘Who let the Das out’ - his stand up comedy evening at Sir Mutha Venkatasubba Rao Concert Hall on October 20. What are you waiting for? No one needs a reason to head for some laughs!

With so many events on the cards, we suspect it is going to be a problem of plenty for Chennai when it comes to getting entertained.
