Introducing SGT. PEPPER

If you take a walk down Glenwood streets; look into coffee shops; checkout the restaurants; hell even open the pages of the latest YOU magazine (true story), you’ll pick up a certain theme in top-button-done-up-apparel worn by the trendiest of the modern men. It’s a vibe inspired by the current kings that are on the verge of breaking the mould of SA’s gents style. Sergeant Pepper Clothing. If you haven’t heard of them or seen their inspiration being worn in the streets.. then for <insert choice cuss word here> sake move out of Poffadder and live a little. Founded by the uber-gent of chivalrous attire himself,...

Tonight is STORY Sessions #6!

This is everything you need to know about STORY Sessions #6 tonight: Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that tonight is STORY Sessions #6 with Sean Wisedale, a man who likes to climb rocks… very big, very tall, rocks. Just to recap, tonight might be considered our ‘fanciest’ STORY Sessions yet with the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre jumping right on board and letting us user their facilities as if it were one of their very own shows. Can I get an, “I say, old chap!”. There’s no overflow in theatres, well, the nice ones like ours, so make sure you get there early to get your FREE...

The Story Behind STO...

This is really an important event for any water-loving Durbanite.. or, any Durban-loving person actually. The story of Marine Surf Lifesaving Club, a fixture on our beachfront’s promenade that we have all come to know, is an extraordinary one. Every new STORY Sessions fan, leaves with...

We Were Here, Cell C, BASA present: The Deep End

There is something magical about this city and Luke Pallet and Dave Fisher captured the feeling of being at the Gangs of Ballet EP launch perfectly. One of my favourite videos this year, so far. Watching the first few seconds of the video took me right back to that night. Waiting for people to come, sure that the rain would put them off. Positively certain that Durbanites would live up to their reputation of being fickle and unable to handle any of the elements, except pure sunshine, without whining like a group of school-girls having to crawl through mud on a Spirit of Adventure camp (those chicks used to rash the hemorrhoids right off...

The Anti Retro Vinyls Sign Label Deal! Apr28

The Anti Retro Vinyls Sign Label Deal!

We’ve been listening to and tweeting about and commenting on and status updating and propaganda dropping The Anti Retro Vinyls every chance we get lately… So imagine our stoke when we found out that they spent last week finalising and signing a label deal with Just Music SA. It turns out when advised to sign an organic veggie box full of sweet potato and cabbage from the local herbalist, Just Music made the much more logical and life-giving choice of signing Anti Retro Vinyls instead. Who wouldn’t?!   If you haven’t heard of them, imagine a band that’s put their own twist on The Cribs and The Wombats type...

Mike van Heerden: Local Boy Does Good At Design Indaba 2012 Mar22

Mike van Heerden: Lo...

Mike van Heerden is a Transformer. A man-genius that’s kind of like a machine that then turns into another machine that uses lasers and all sorts of white magic to turn wood into something you wouldn’t assume you’d need to sit on. The Transformer won Best Creative Stand at...

Asleep In Transit &#...

If memory serves me correct, Durban act Asleep In Transit were semi-locals at Unit 11 on any genre-specific evening. For some reason I never got to sit down and listen to them properly… until someone sent me the link to their new music video. Seriously, it’s quite cool. The video...
