“Live” electronic music at Parks – a chat with The Kiffness

Meme-master musician The Kiffness is playing at this Sunday’s Park Acoustics Electric, hoping to find the perfect booking balance between band stages and DJ lineups. We asked him about memes (obviously), influences, collaborations, and appearing at the potentially inaugural “electric” edition of Park Acoustics…

Q&A: Adelle Nqeto on returning home to Park Acoustics

Adelle Nqeto is one of the most exciting local folk artists around at the moment. When her previous band, came to its conclusion, she branched off with a solo career that has just gone from strength to strength. She’s a regular sight at festivals and events all over the country, with her shows and lineups regularly evolving. We’re excited to see her return to Park Acoustics this Sunday, and checked in to see if she’s equally excited…

Foxtrot band

Q&A: Foxtrot on looping, popping and dancing at Park Acoustics

Foxtrot is a relatively new band from Pretoria, who play a hard-to-define kind of “Foxpop” music (“with a scent of jazz, African grooves and theatrical inspiration”). The group consists of Siobhan Lloyd-Jones on violin & vocals, Ronald Davey on cello, trumpet, and vocals, Mart-Marie Snyman on keys, and James Robb on drums and percussion. They’re playing the next Park Acoustics on 4 February, so we asked them a couple of questions to alleviate our anticipation…

Pollinator

Pollinator is excited for Park Acoustics like matrics before the ball

Pollinator is a three-piece rock band from Joburg, and they’ll be making a debut Park Acoustics appearance this Sunday. After we spotted them playing in dresses at Oppikoppi this year (they wanted to look like they were off to a matric dance), we couldn’t resist asking them about balls, music, and mating calls.
