Warehouse wonder
Those who have attended a true-blue warehouse party would understand how underground (sometimes literally) such gigs can be. And those who haven't, now have a chance to gain the same understanding at an iconic central Mumbai venue, which will host Anthony Naples, a musical spin doctor from Brooklyn. Naples shot to fame in no time six years ago while still in his early 20s. He now brings his brand of dance music to the city this weekend.
