You are invited to a weekend of awesomeness!
There sure is a lot to be excited about going down between Joburg and Pretoria these days! To be honest, I was feeling like things have been dying down for a little while, but the past two weekends have been amazing and now another weekend full of all kinds of awesome looms! And it starts tonight!
Thursday's at Amuse have become the only home for underground live music in JHB. I can't stress enough how great it is to a quality live show going down ever single week. Tonight marks a particularly exciting installment in the series; Jozi's only certified surf-practitioners, The Moths, will be taking the stage! The band will also be joined by Emma Hearne & Kitsch (could have sworn I posted their Hanro Havenga-amazingified video somewhere on SMAC, but for now let me direct you here!) The Moths are up at 8 - so get through to this one early!
Then on Friday night, the oh-so-gangster Untamed Youth returns to The City of Gold! As well as DJ love from We Are Awesome, the night will be graced by a set from Haasbroek, who'll be coming all the way from Cape Town just to give you ear-hugs!
As a warm-up/ cool-down from that awesomeness, I recommend pulling some shapes on the Amuse dancefloor with N.S.P, DJ DJ and Sassquatch (that's me!) as we break it down for the second installment of Like!
Then, Saturday night is the big one!
Desmond and The Tutus!
Sassquatch suit and spin a couple of songs after their set! What's more, I'll be playing head to head, with the brightest new light in the Jozi party scene, Half 'n Half. If you've yet to see him behind a pair of decks, this kid is all kinds of awesome, and I can't wait to team up with him!
P.P.S. I realise this will be the first time any of us go to Mihouse! While the prospect of a new venue in Joburg is mega-exciting, it does mean people don't know how to get there yet. To solve this problem, here's a mnap:
