Josh Kempen puts on The Morning Show: A revealing rock ‘n roll record

Josh Kempen sped onto my radar pretty quickly. In the last year or two, I saw him play a solo show, heard he released an EP, saw his name on all sorts of festival line-ups around the country, saw him again and again with a three-piece band, got wind that he’s signed with Warner Music, and now he’s released a debut album, The Morning Show: an intimate blend of electric guitar folk and 50’s rock ‘n roll.

Josh Kempen. At OneSight Acoustics at The Good Luck Bar this Sunday - 27 November 2016.

Josh Kempen on OneSight Acoustics and his love of naïve rock ‘n roll

Josh Kempen speaks with an unfamiliar accent, especially for a Jozi-born singer-songwriter. And it’s got something to do with having travelled the world, as far as I can tell. Having been nominated for a 2014 Wawela music award as “Songwriter of the year”, this guy’s obviously got something to say.

BCUC. OneSight Acoustics #3 at The Good Luck Bar, 13 November.

TICKET GIVEAWAY: We were at OneSight Acoustics

It’s pretty hard to organise an event with an all-star lineup. For one thing, you can’t have every band be the headliner. So at this past Sunday’s OneSight Acoustics event at the Good Luck Bar, you’d have had to be there at 2pm already, if you wanted to see December Streets, BCUC, Reason, and DJ Invizable – all big headline acts. The next event, on 27 November, features Freshlyground, Josh Kempen, Bongeziwe Mabandla, and Half ‘n half, and we’re giving away a set of tickets below!

Capital Craft Beer Festival 2016

Capital Craft Beer Festival 2016 – Win Tickets!

The Capital Craft Beer Festival is a well-established annual highlight on Pretoria’s craft beer and live music calendar. And after last year’s great festival (but entrance & queueing problems), they’ve decided to break tradition this year, and move the event to the Pretoria National Botanical Garden. The Capital Craft Beer Festival 2016 will take place this year on Saturday 11 June. As always, it’ll be a great event to experience both new and familiar craft beers, and witness an exciting lineup of music.

Please note that the organisers are very aware of last year’s queueing issues, have resolved to fix this, and “guarantee a quick and easy entry to the festival area” this year.

“Join us at the Pretoria National Botanical Garden when we combine the age-old tradition of drinking beer with new and exciting musical acts and introduce you to a vast variety of local micro-manufactured brews.”

Mieliepop 2016 Banner

Mieliepop 2016 – what every festival should be

What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the term “music festival”? If you’re from Gauteng, it’s most likely dust. And crowds. And drunk youths. But then there’s Mieliepop.

Beforehand, it looked like bad weather might intrude on the weekend. But the sunshine arrived just on time. A simple, 270 km/3 hour drive from Pretoria leads you to the beautiful Tolderia Resort – a real majestic, beautiful, peaceful, green hilly area in the middle of nowhere. The trek into the resort was slightly rough after the rain, and arriving there in the dark isn’t recommended – though that really applies to any festival.
