I REALLY like this local chap. I’ve seen him live a few times, and I’ve never been dissapointed. However, he friggin blew me away with “Too Tired To Disco”. I was so used to his darker side, songs with lyrics like “I will eat your family”, that the sweet “let’s not skip the romance” made my knees go weak. Well done Peach.
I was not surprised to see the ever popular Louis Minnaar did the video, he’s everywhere. For good reason though.

I was lucky enough to watch Lark perform at Arcade Empire last week. I had an incredible time, and enjoyed partying with some of the guys from The B(l)and. I think Inge Beckman is one of the prettiest most talented women who ever lived, and I absolutely worship Lark!


We went to watch The B(l)and rehearse last week Friday, I expected a few guys drinking on amps. But when we pulled up to the very suburban house I could hear the music playing from the street. It could not have been more rock ‘n roll, they practiced in an empty double garage that faced the open road. The door seemed to open to a world of glowy warmth, I thought of Scott Pilgrim vs. The world. I knew they were good so I ain’t gonna lie and say I was surprised, but, I got very excited when they started playing a cover of Florence and The Machine’s Cosmic Love. Can’t wait for them to finish and start performing! The band consists of two brothers, a cousin and a good friend. They are possibly the funniest guys you will ever meet. I was also fortunate enough to party with them when we went to see the incredible LARK, at Arcade Empire on Thursday. I had to walk away from the conversation on many an occasion just to keep from wetting myself.


My university is hosting an event this summer that invites various disciplines to take part.

What is the CULTure of (IN)difference?

“Our dream is to allow artists, musicians, thespians, poets, scholars, and others to engage with and learn from one another.

The nature of the event is in the hands of the participants. We imagine an eclectic coming together of all the Arts in an explosion of creativity and a synergy of ideas.
The event is scheduled for 30th September and 1st October 2011 in the Visual Arts building on Main Campus. We welcome participants and attendance from all disciplines.
Are the Arts simply governed by a trendy elite; a “Cult of In?” Or are the Arts in South Africa meant to articulate political understandings in our “Culture of Difference?” Are South Africans “indifferent” to the Arts for any particular reason, if they are at all?

These and other questions were the motivation behind the title. However, we welcome all interpretations of the event since the organisers were few, and the participants will be many. This is a postgraduate initiative; we aim to give postgraduate students who touch on the arts a space in which to express themselves. However, this by no means excludes everybody else.”
