Incubus in Pretoria – Bucket List item: Checked.

Incubus has long been a favourite band of mine, and of many loved ones. Hits like Pardon Me, Megalomaniac, and especially Wish You Were Here has long adorned my playlists, so when it was announced that Incubus had added a South African stop on their latest tour, it didn’t take much convincing for us to make the trek to the Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria.

Deon Bakkes and the Stolen Horses

Mieliepop Q&A: Deon Bakkes And The Stolen Horses

The Republic of Mieliepop 2018 is only one month away, and since Deon Bakkes and The Stolen Horses is probably the only horse-related band on the lineup, we aimed to get off our high horses, speak to the dark horse Deon himself, and get the goods straight from the horse’s mouth… Luckily he’s one who enjoys horsing around.

Peter Toussaint live One Day

One Day in Peter Toussaint’s life

One Day is the latest offering from Peter Toussaint – a Dutch guitarist and performer, living in South Africa. It takes the form of a day in the life – beginning with Sunrise and ending with Home. This album combines studio recorded songs with ambient sounds captured by Peter himself on his phone, such as chirping birds, footsteps and the sound of a car engine turning over.

The Highs and Lows of Generation X – Wonderboom talks opening for Crash Test Dummies

Unfortunately for me, Wonderboom aren’t big enough Crash Test Dummies fans to have favourite songs, or any cool ‘how I first discovered Crash Test Dummies’ stories. But since they’re one of the local openers for the Canadian band’s upcoming Pretoria and Cape Town shows, I asked them about it anyway.
