It all begins in Jozi in July and it’s happening at the city’s favourite cult venue, Hotel Sunningdale. The line-up is split across two nights, showcasing the extreme depth of the Joburg underground. First up on Thursday, 19 of July are Kidofdoom and Desmond and the Tutus. True non-conformists with a broad-minded approach to music-making, Kidofdoom have a unique voice, and sing only in the language of music. Their broad appeal and dedication to fresh sounds have won them many fans throughout the country. Their partners in crime on the night, Desmond and The Tutus, are making waves with their awesome blend of Rock ‘n Roll, Indie Kwela Punk and Pure Genius. As original as they come, but with a flavour that’s infectious to a whole range of fans, their stage show is completely mind-blowing.
It all gets going again one week later on Thursday, 26th of July at the same venue. This time it’s Reason and Nthabi in the house. Reason is a growing force in the ever-expanding world of local hip hop. His appeal as both a crowd pleaser and a serious lyricist means that he’s loved by both heads and hedonists alike. Reason enough to be there. And another one is female free-styler, Nthabi. A remarkable emcee with a devotion to hip hop, she’s been opening ears and eyes with her upfront lyrics and incisive stage presence. Don’t miss this chance to see her shine.
Tickets: R20 at the Rosebank Levi’s® Store and at the door.
