Mumford and Sons Cape Town [Review]

It is insanely expensive renting in Cape Town’s City Bowl. Not only that, but traffic can also be really hectic, and going for a swim after work mostly turns out in an hour-long wait in the traffic up Kloof Nek. But one of the biggest perks? You can walk to a Mumford and Sons concert in the middle of the city…

Slow Jack

Slow Jack Band Premiere 

Two weeks ago I was introduced to a brand new 5-piece band from Cape Town. Ah, new music from the Mother City, I thought, always curious and interested when new bands enter the "scene". Slow Jack’s “band premiere” was held at the intriguingly beautiful Roodebloem Studios. We were welcomed with a delicious cocktail and hanged on the stairs of the old church with fellow media and industry individuals.

Travel Blogging

Let me tell you about our trip...

Wild Spirit

Wild Spirit is like a little paradise hidden in the Nature’s Valley forest. It’s like a haven for travellers and backpackers looking to rough it up a bit in the bush. Here a couple of young people offer their time and a specific skill for around 3 months at a time. These volunteers are called “earth angels”. Among these angels is my sister. A few months ago she started to work in their kitchen as a chef. So, my mama, her partner and his daughter, Linsay, joined us all at the backpackers over the Christmas period.

We arrive at Wild Spirit on Thursday afternoon. I drive around the campsite looking for a cool spot to pitch our tent. The camping area is literally in the forest. Underneath the trees we pitch our little home for the next couple of days. It’s quiet around the site, even your voice sounds weird when you suddenly speak. Like it doesn’t really belong here. We’ve been looking for some peace and quiet, it’s what we need. Peace and quiet far away from the city.

Scott Stapp Live in Cape Town [Review]

As I drove around Cape Town at the beginning of December, I saw a very interesting poster on some of the lamp posts: Scott Stapp -- The Voice of Creed live in Cape Town. Creed is the band that brought us songs like ‘With Arms Wide Open’ and ‘My Sacrifice’ when I was literally not even a teenager yet. They were not Korn, but at the time they were hardcore enough to play at semi-innocent, pre-teen house parties and sleepovers. Although I had no real urge to see the vocalist perform a solo show, I was kind of intrigued to hear him sing a few Creed songs (I mean, we all know the words by heart, don’t we?).
