  1. Hugh Masekela, and New Academics!! One of the biggest legends in this country, can’t miss out on Hughey’s great performance as always, what a rare one. New Academics, always making me wanting to strip down and have funky sex. Shortstraw always makes me wet as a bonus.

  2. Two years ago at a Shortstraw show in Pretoria I met a guy, as drunk as a skunk while being stuck in a tree (I have photos to prove this) and he instantly became my best friend. Shortstraw also became a symbol of our friendship, because it all started with them. Coincidentally it is his birthday weekend that weekend and I would love to go crazy with him while listening to our band at Onesight Acoustics <3

  3. I was the drunk-as-a-skunk guy in the tree that became best friends with someone I’ve never met over the sweet sweet sounds of Shortstraw stroaking my ears. I swear to bring joy, lots of alcohol and amazing smiles to all people attending the show and it would be a merry ol’ time!!! Please make me a winner! Otherwise I’ll be a whiner, and no one likes that!

  4. Watching Hugh Masekela live is the equivalent of a blues fan watching BB King live. No words would be able to describe the burning joy witnessing this legend on stage. Also Shortstraw reminds me of an early beer on a Saturday morning doing a breakfast braai, what could be better?
