Imagine a time when people went to shows simply because, well, there was a show to go to. A time when we all banded together for a common goal. Punk Rock and Heavy Metal have many things in common, both are, in today’s age, genres of passion epitomised by a “fuck you, I’ll play what I want” attitude. In South Africa, the land of Kwaito and soft Afrikaans rock, punk and metal are also both distinctly underground. Both genres, while unique in their own ways, are united by the fact that punk and metal artists in South Africa play not for profit or fame but for the simple fact that they fucking love what they are doing. There are no egos, there is no bullshit, nobody cares if you’re a punk, metalhead or an ageing ginger goth, and there was a time in Cape Town where both punk and metal acts shared the stage on a regular basis, a time when the cape town musical underground was at its strongest. Why then, you may ask, are the two scenes seemingly so far apart? Why can’t you listen to your favourite punk-rockers back to back with some monstrous metal? Again, punk and metal share the stage as the realization that we are part of the same scene has come about, a loud, united voice that, when focused in the right direction, can and will ignite a change. Come witness a group of talented and driven musicians play exactly what the fuck they want to. Come witness the UNITED UNDERGROUND!
Rock the River SA 2012 gears up for another sell-out They say the early bird catches the worm and with the warp speed at which this year has been hurtling by so far, it seems like a good idea to get holiday plans done and dusted before the vacationing masses descend. Good news: there is no need to fret about securing a venue for a New Year’s party, we’ve got you covered! Rock the River SA is fast becoming Cape Town’s premier New Year’s destination, and with good reason – the festival provides a crazy entertainment line-up at a convenient location close to Cape Town and for a reasonable price. After the sell-out success of RTR SA 2011/12, the team put their heads together, buckled down and managed to go above and beyond the call of duty in lining up an even more impressive range of artists and entertainers to usher in the new year.
