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

b2ap3_thumbnail_vodacom-logo.png

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.

Posted by on in Music Scene

For this week's #musicfriday, One UP South Africa contributor, @mishful_thinkin has put forward a tune from a local favourite, Kongos...

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

Animal (onesie) Clans: One Big Five

Posted by on in One Big Top 5

Now, the guys over at aFREAKa are constantly extending their offering of animal costumes. They didn’t stop at the big five, no, no, they’re covering all terrain’s and all habitats in perhaps, a gentle nod to the individualism and diversity of our beloved Rainbow Nation. Tree-dwellers, hillside grazers, lilypad poppers, Serengeti settlers and mystical apparitions are all on the cards.  

For this week’s One Big Five, we break down the aFREAKa animal onesie offering into their clans!
