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!
It's jiving time with the sole-survivors of South Africa's 2006 indie-rock explosion, Desmond and The Tutus!
It' a party every time these 4 handsome faces take to the stage, but this Saturday at Mihouse is gonna be extra-radical! The band will be celebrating the launch of their killer new album Mnusic! I made it through the Pretorian launch party last weekend and it was a ludicrously fun night. I expect just as much fun this Saturday! Actually, make that "even more fun"!!! For their Joburg launch, the band have asked me to put on my 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.S. Mnusic features 11 great tracks to spin at your next house-party, PJ-party or fondue! It also features the best damn album art my eyes have ever seen! Be sure to bring along an extra R100 so you can leave the launch with your own little piece of this mnagic!

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:
