Satanic Dagga Orgy - The Prawn Awakens

May the Prawn be with You: Satanic Dagga Orgy’s The Prawn Awakens

Some bands are talented and make good music, while others have to resort to silly gimmicks in order to get attention. In which category would you guess Satanic Dagga Orgy, the “Acousticore Polk Funk” band from Joburg who loves playing shows in speedos, belong? Their new EP, The Prawn Awakens, prompted an investigation… Continue reading “May the Prawn be with You: Satanic Dagga Orgy’s The Prawn Awakens”

Koos Kombuis Lush

Van die kombuisvloer na die verhoog – Koos Kombuis gaan Lush Festival toe

Suid Afrika is ‘n kulturele land, daar’s geen twyfel daarin in nie. Ons hardloop op diversiteit. En vir al ons verskille het ons almal een ding in gemeen; ons hou van partytjie. Die beste bewys hiervan is die menigde kuns – en musiekfeeste in ons land wat vir ons beskikbaar is.

Laas jaar is die nuweling Lush Festival op die been gebring, en het hy sy voete tussen die ou menere gevind. Dié jaar dans hy saam. Continue reading “Van die kombuisvloer na die verhoog – Koos Kombuis gaan Lush Festival toe”

Valiant Swart - Lush 2017

Valiant Swart – Dié troebadoer is op pad Lush toe!

Alhoewel hy homself nie noodwendig as ’n ikoon of legende sien nie, is Valiant Swart vir seker ’n Suid-Afrikaanse kunstenaar wat respek afdwing. Hy is al etlike jare ’n prominente naam in die bedryf en wen nuwe aanhangers oor met sy strelende stem en goeie lirieke. “Dis strelend vir die ego om ’n legend of ikoon genoem te word,” sê Valiant. “Maar ’n mens moet dit nie kop toe vat nie. Eintlik is jy maar net nog ’n ou met ’n klomp liedjies en ’n kitaar wat ’n bestaan probeer maak.” Continue reading “Valiant Swart – Dié troebadoer is op pad Lush toe!”

The Republic of Mieliepop 2017

Passport to the Republic of Mieliepop 2017: Renewed

It’s not every event where you go from watching Shortstraw, to Boargazm, to PHFAT, to Mr Green in the Rave Cave. Hell, most events don’t even have a Rave Cave. Or a nice dam surrounded by grassy hills. Or a boutique festival vibe, with minimal crowds and queues, fancy food stalls, warm showers, and more than enough camping space. That’s why The Republic of Mieliepop is something special. Continue reading “Passport to the Republic of Mieliepop 2017: Renewed”
