BIO
Amrit Singh is the On-Air News Anchor, and Music & Culture Editor, of REVOLT TV, the new television network from Sean Combs. At REVOLT, he writes and presents stories and interviews on live television, all day every day, with an emphasis on connecting the dots between music, culture, and news. You can watch this intro to REVOLT, or read pieces in Billboard, The L Magazine, and GQ India for more. Previously, he served as Executive Editor of Stereogum.com for nearly eight years, writing and producing the website into a leading voice in independent music. His video journalism has appeared on ABC, MTV, and Fuse. Amrit also served as Editor of the University of Wisconsin International Law Journal, and is a NY State Bar certified attorney, but we try not to remind his father of this. In 2012, Amrit made and appeared in his first film, DOSA HUNT, featuring members of Vampire Weekend, Das Racist, Neon Indian, Yeasayer, and the Vijay Iyer Trio on "The Greatest Hunt For South Indian Food In NYC Ever Committed To Film!" (Here's the trailer, if you're curious.) His speaking engagements and press campaign have connected the film with diverse audiences, film festivals, and media outlets from New York Magazine to BBC TV World News. Amrit has been called a "global citizen to watch" and a "generational voice" by The Huffington Post's Jim Luce, and "an example of how Indian culture gets hybridized" by The World's Marco Werman.
He lives in Los Angeles, and was born in New York City.

Announcing the opening run of DOSA HUNT @ Nitehawk Cinema in Williasmburg on Friday 10/5, Saturday 10/6, and Monday 10/8!
Buy tickets now! 
Each ticket comes with dosa and samosa (provided by the delicious Anjappar). After each screening there will be a Q&A panel moderated by music television great John Norris. The afterparties will have complimentary Kingfisher beer, with DJ sets by DFA Artist REWARDS (Friday), Jagjaguwar artist Small Black (Saturday), and Quinn Walker of Frenchkiss Records outfit Suckers (Saturday). Tickets are $15 — for dinner, screening, beer, and friendship. THAT’S PRETTY GOOD.
Friday and Saturday doors are at 11PM (with dosa at 12AM, screening at 12:30AM), while Monday is a Columbus Day matinee at 1PM, which will be a special time. Dosa and drinking is a great way to observe that holiday given how much that dude loved Indians. 
We’re really proud of the movie and can’t wait to share it with you. These will be beautiful celebrations. We’d love to have you.

It’s time. Please come, this will be the best.
