Control ALT Delete… What?
Control ALT Delete is the quintessential scene gig. It's an event that showcases new, alternative music without any agenda or pretensions. It's put together by people who have been part of the Bombay rock scene for many years; people who've seen this scene grow from gigs at Razzberry Rhinocerous and suburban terraces, to huge music festivals and nationwide tours. And though the scene has become a marketer's delight, with every second event employing a liquor brand, some new jeans perhaps, would you like to get a better 3G service with your punk rock... there are still a few who like to do things themselves, representing a DIY ethic that has powered on for years and has seen the growth of the Bombay alternative rock scene from a handful of scenesters to a real movement.
Control ALT Delete is a reminder of all that.
What we do..
Originally, Control ALT Delete gave fans the unique option of paying whatever they wanted to watch a lineup of some of the best alternative, un-metal music the city had to offer. In the past, the gig has seen young bands like The Lightyears Explode and Blek cut their teeth here and earn many of the live chops they use to great effect in their sets these days. The gig has also featured performances from scene veterans like Split, and even a surprise set from Bombay rock legends Zero.

Why are we Crowdfunding? Read on..
This time around, we're taking that DIY ethic a step further and inviting YOU (yes, you in the torn jeans and Converse Chuck Taylors) to make the gig happen. We've put together a phenomenal lineup of Bombay rock acts just waiting to get on stage, we have a great venue that's perfect for the inevitable chaos, and all that's needed is the stuff that actually makes a gig a gig - sound, lights, et al. You can choose to be an attendee, or someone actually responsible for making the magic happen. Your contributions will go towards ensuring that the bands have the right equipment on stage to give it their best; they will go towards making the gig more than a concert, but a real show; and if you contribute enough, you can even get a gig of your own right in the comfort of your home!
Be a part of the movement. The ‘Real’ scene hero is YOU.
