Ticket giveaway: Liefde by die Dam – 16 June 2016

“Die liefde is soos ‘n ryp komkommer – vergeet hom in die sakkie dan verlep hy sommer.”

DJ Billy Killer van de Sandton

DJ Billy Killer van de Sandton – From BMX to Xai Xai

DJ Billy Killer van de Sandton is the only person I know of whose journey into music started with BMXing. “I started racing BMX and then turned to freestyle BMX. I met some really cool dudes like Brad and Greg Illingworth and after a good riding session they used to take me to live shows at places like the original Bohemian and London Calling in Troyville.”

On one of these occasions, he discovered The Slashdogs“From there I fell in love with the whole idea of Rock ‘n roll, Punk and live music.”

And he still has a punk edge to him.

Pollinator - Honeyeater

Pollinator’s Honeyeaters – As audacious as their live shows?

The Johannesburg-based rock group Pollinator is relatively new on the scene, but has been making tongues wag as a live act with immense chutzpah. The energy that Evert Snyman (vocals, guitar), Louise Eksteen (vocals, bass) and Tim Edwards (vocals, drums) eject has set many venues alight. The question is whether their debut album, Honeyeaters, will ignite the same fire in the hearts of music lovers.

Dee Theart

Dee is a Jack of many trades and perhaps a master of some: writing, MC’ing, presenting, acting and the occasional afternoon nap.

When Marty McFly arrives: Back to the Future 2 at The Bioscope

What’s that? Oh, only the sequel to one of the BEST MOVIES EVER [Surprisingly, part II is a pretty good movie itself]. Being shown in a cinema. Where you can experience it with an audience.

ON THE EXACT DATE THAT MARTY MCFLY ARRIVES IN 2015 IN THE FILM.

Can you tell that I’m excited?
