Innibos

Goed, Beter, Innibos 2017

Laat ek sommer uit die staanspoor sê dat ek tot hierdie jaar nog nooit ’n Innibos-fees bygewoon het nie. As ’n self-erkende fees “junkie”, is ek nogal skaam dat hierdie jaarlikse instelling in Mbombela (Nelspruit) in Mpumalanga nog altyd buite my radar was. Meer as 100 000 mense wat per jaar hierdie fees bywoon (vanjaar het daar meer as 101 000 pare voete deur die hekke beweeg!) kan nie verkeerd wees nie, so ek is baie bly ek het besluit om my tassies te pak vir hierdie mengelmoes feeservaring.

Springbok Nude Girls

This movie is NOT porn: Springbok Nude Girls

Before Fokofpolisiekar and The Parlotones, the breakthrough, height-of-alternative rock band from South Africa was Springbok Nude Girls. I don’t know if they were really “a band who captured the imagination of a generation” [the film’s tagline], but they were definitely big, important, and defining in the history of South African music. The film is a production by Thinking Owl Films in association with Sony Music Entertainment Africa. It’s unclear exactly where the money for the movie came from, which means we don’t know how biased or objective the film really is. Is it a true documentary, or more of a propoganda publicity piece that helps promote the band’s latest shows?

The Blood Brothers unite to tell us what People Gotta Know

As individuals, you’ve heard plently of songs from all of them. Now, the Blood Brothers released their first track and music video as a supergroup: People Gotta Know. The aim of the Blood Brothers is to spread awareness about, and raise funds for the fight against cancer. Together, they perform the major hits that made them famous plus songs from international bands that influenced their sound. They’re also finally bringing their 3 hour show to Cape Town this week.
