Coming soon: I'll be finishing up a rather unsual post about the state of live music around the little piece of South Africa this blog has been enthusiastically centered around for the past five years. It's a pretty crazy confusing state of affairs with a whole bunch of factors contributing and effecting what's going on. I don't wanna get into it to much now, because as I say, there's a proper post in the works. And, deathly serious as it will be, it's gonna have comic bits.
While that forthcoming post is gonna take a look at my lineup of suspects, for now let me just say that a collection of sinister forces have murdered live music between Joburg and Pretoria! To our rescue though, my buddy Joe is bringing up 2 shining examples of just how alive and spritely the live music scene is in Cape Town these days!
So Joe phoned me up the other day. He wanted to know if I'd like to visit my hometown and play a set between two of my favourite bands in the country. He wanted to know if I'd like to draw something to get people to come through. This is the result:
how much fun I had opening for gateway Drugs the last time. It is probably worthing point out though: the lineup of DJs assembled to support these bands is just great. So basically, you really should come through to this.
