Last night I went to the Bruin Bhangra competition and afterparty. I hadn’t been to a bhangra competition in like 4 years, but I went to this one because I knew a few people performing and my sister’s boyfriend was one of the judges.
The main competition was great, props to Anakh-E-Gabroo for winning 1st place, they totally deserved it. Their gimmicks were crazy and their stunts had me hanging on the edge of my seat.
I think Bhangra Knightz should have definitely placed though, they had a great performance and their energy was contagious. I think Khalsa Junction stole their placing, but I understand why they had to place since they had such a big crowd following.
Now the afterparty… was a hot mess. Obnoxious, drunk girls everywhere and creepy, random, old men trying to rub their genitals on your ass. Yeah, not great. But regardless, I got down with my friends and met some fun people.
