True Brew Records in collaboration with ProperGanda and Ammach Productions organised two days of live performance by local talents Jimmy Khan and Poor Rich Boys on Friday and Saturday. In an effort to revive the live music circuit in Lahore, True Brew Records has established a performance venue in the heart of Lahore, titled Live at True Brew, which was launched with two-day musical performances this weekend before a jam-packed house.
Jimmy Khan kicked off both nights with his acoustic solo performance, followed by the main show by the Poor Rich Boys, which played to a jam-packed audience.
Poor Rich Boy is a Lahore-based band that comprises of Shehzad Noor, Zain Ahsan, Raavail Sattar, Zain Molvi, Danish Khwaja and Umer Khan. The band has been around for about three years, while the current line up came together in 2011 and started work on their debut album, tentatively being called, ‘Old Money’. The band has already released three singles from the album, earning for themselves a substantial fan following.
“This Friday and Saturday night afforded Poor Rich Boys the sort of performing space and sound quality that one rarely comes across in the Pakistani underground scene,” one of the band’s members told The News. On the other hand, Jimmy Khan, another Lahore based musician, who opened for Poor Rich Boy at the same event, has also been active in the music scene for three years. His first single, ‘Pehla Pyar’ was released to critical acclaim last year. He’s currently in the process of recording his album out of which the second single ‘Aisay Kaisay’ (produced by Jamal Rahman at True Brew Records) is slated for release in the coming week.
