Jo'burg warms up big names for Rocking the Daisy - Meg Roux

Posted by on in Festivals & Events

Vodacom Live Round Up from Meg Roux


It was already dark and I was late. As I ran from one end of Mary Fitzgerald Square to the other, the loud beat of local DJ Lil’ Bow rang in my ears. Finally, I was inside, and just in time for the ever popular local act, Al Bairre. Consisting of Tom, Nic, Julia, Kyle and Tessa, this band from the Mother City was voted quite enthusiastically to open for Alt-J. The voters for the VITC Open The City Competition weren’t wrong – Al Bairre were fantastic. With determination I moved my way through the crowd and to the front of the stage just as Nic began singing. Soon the crowd and I were one, swaying to the lyrics of this five piece indie prodigy.

So there I was huddled up in between fellow Linkin Park fans in the Cape Town Stadium and as crazed and keen as ever for the show to start. There was chatter about who was opening for them but I paid that detail no attention, because I was so excited to see one of my all-time favourite bands.

Shame. On. Me

For this week's #musicfriday, One UP South Africa contributor, @mishful_thinkin has put forward a tune from a Synergy Live favourite, Al Bairre...

On one slightly inebriated afternoon last year I made my way through to the LMS stage, an awesome component of the annual event called Synergy Live. It was me, a few of my friends and a whole lot of new faces. A set was well on its way and we decided to form part of the swaying and pseudo-salsa-ing that was taking place as people danced to Al Bairre.
