Juggernaught - Act of Goat - ROAR Review

[ Read Article ]
Ring ring! Hola! We're moving, rolling into drive-ways and waiting for the inhabitants of the houses to surface. Somebody produces a litre of coke to which we add the rest of that nasty rum and bounce the bottle. Everybody knows the deal, Juggernaught are down from Pretoria.

Pre-event chills are settled solidly with the consumption of a Savana, a couple Castles, a Black Label and some other strange tasting brew... weird afternoon! Ring ring! Hola! We're moving, rolling into drive-ways and waiting for the inhabitants of the houses to surface. Somebody produces a litre of coke to which we add the rest of that nasty rum and bounce the bottle. Everybody knows the deal, Juggernaught are down from Pretoria and playing in a small spot renowned for awesome sound,... read more?

Full Moon Alternative Lounge - Menlyn/Pretoria - 4th September 2009

[ Read Article ]
Review of Goth Club and their bands of the night

Indietronic Spring Bash

This alternative venue, tucked so nicely away in the Hazzelwood Suburb in Menlyn Pretoria area is certainly, for me a clichĂ© in the making….. an oasis in the desert… ( Actually I got so fukkin’ lost, my joint was the only thing that focussed me enough to find this hidden little gem.

Simple black based with red accented dĂ©cor on the outside, so dark and demur that I missed the entrance totally…. Following through the black padded door one walks straight... read more?

Armageddon Fest 3 - 22nd August 2009 - Edenvale

[ Read Article ]

Doesn’t the name Armageddon just ring “death & destruction” and a mean party for heavy moshers and bangers with loose brains?
Certainly by the end of the evening I can say the remnants of Armageddon was evident as the moshing and stage diving made for a great party and certainly excellent entertainment….. with one rather heavy stage diver enthusiastically concussing himself 3 times till he totally knocked himself out all together… .read on and you will find out the finer details…... read more?

A German hard rock band with a history that is so massive and impressive that I have to split this feature in two or more parts (joined again by Jack Stone for purposes of this site).
