March starts on a musical high, as we round up three gigs this month that you shouldn't miss.

Blackstratblues
When:
3rd March
Where: Todi Social, Mumbai
Road to Converse Rubber Tracks in India is back for its second season as they travel to five cities in search of that one worthy band that will get the opportunity to record at the Converse Rubber Tracks studio in Brooklyn. Mark your calendars for the Mumbai Regional Round and lookout for the headliners—Blackstratblues. Their heady tunes might just be the thing you need on a Thursday evening.

Lucy Rose
When:
4th March
Where: antiSOCIAL, Hauz Khas Village, Delhi
Hardy of head, strong of mind and deft of touch, 25 year old Lucy released her debut album, Like I Used To in 2012. Three years later, her second album, Work It Out, only proved the fact that the first wasn't a fluke. Catch her live at antiSOCIAL and lose yourself to those elemental folk numbers. 

Street Beat
When:
5th March
Where: BlueFROG, Lower Parel, Mumbai
Drop the bass and put on your dancing shoes as Nucleya plays the heavy beats from Bangla Bass and ends with his latest hit Laung Gawacha. His million watt tunes takes you on a ride through the street hiphop space as he's joined by a few other artists. So Mumbai, you know where to be.
