In addition to skating, Go Skateboarding Day features a performance by Pune punk rock band Doctor Zebra. Frontman Jay Kinra, who also recently put together Go Skate Day in Pune with his own skateboarding company Active8 Sports, says he’s looking forward to checking out the scene here. He says, “Growing up, I took part in Skate Days in California and Boston. Bengaluru is the Mecca of the skate scene right now.” Kinra will be a part of the event in every way – from an entrepreneur selling skating merchandise, to a skater and a music performer. With Doctor Zebra – who mix everything from skate punk to surf punk and straight-up pop punk – Kinra will play about 12 songs and throw in covers of bands such as The Ramones and Sublime. He adds, “To perform at a skating event is like a dream come true for me. I feel punk music is still catching on in India, much like skateboarding. This is a great space for both.”
