Thomas Krane: God Of...

Oh my, Thomas Krane… I don’t know if I ever did or didn’t, but I remember that over a year a go this Durban band blew me away so much, that I labelled them as the most underrated and best kept secret this city has. I might have swapped ‘city’ for...

Gangs of Ballet EP L...

Easily the most anticipated gig to happen so far this year, well, for a large part of Durban’s music community at least, will be this Friday’s Gangs of Ballet EP Launch in the middle of town. If you’re freaked out about it being the middle of town wait until you hear that...

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...

Rock Paper Scissors:...

Check it! RPS are out with their new Late Summer 2012 range for men. The photographer, Allister Christie, is all over the flipping place these days, definitely jot that name down and throw it around dinner parties when you want to validate your existence as the trend-spotter of the group. Here...

TDCC – And The...

Hey it’s just like the Oscars. Sort of. Not at all. Moving on… So, firstly let me apologise to everyone for not being able to engage with each of you over the past week! We are usually all over comments but this week saw me Cape Town and fending for myself while you guys almost...

For All Of You With ‘Clients’ Feb27

For All Of You With ...

I saw a friend share The Tantrum on Facebook and I almost cried, from both the laughter aches and the very real memory of some of the most frustrating jobs I had ever worked on. We’ve all had a client that brings this out of us. For what it’s worth, I managed to limit my breakdowns...

Tiger Says: Choose Y...

Dusty and Nicole, our good friends who own Durban’s favorite tattoo joint, have been kind enough to tell us what makes a tattoo kak and how you can make sure you’re not about to get the scribblings of a two-year old permanently scratched into you. My advice, don’t even...

Isochronous To Play With Two Door Cinema Club. Feb17

Isochronous To Play ...

God loves us… and here’s how I know how – A little while ago, sound-shaping Pretoria outfit, Isochronous, announced via their website that they’d be opening for Two Door Cinema Club during the UK band’s tour of the country. I’m not exactly sure how the...

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...

Two Door Cinema Club...

You would have seen in an earlier post how pleased we were to tell our readers that international Ginger-fronted band Two Door Cinema Club are coming to South Africa next month, thanks to the good folk at 5 Gum… When we say good folk, we mean it! Zero31 now has three double tickets to...

5 Gum presents Two D...

Two Door Cinema Club are coming to SA… but there’s a twist apparently. I won’t lie, the innovation behind 5 Gum’s marketing strategies alone makes me act in a way I never thought I would have: being loyal to a frikkin’ chewing gum. But hell, if you put in that...

Bouwer Bosch –...

Imagine an Afrikaans Will Ferrell and you have Bouwer Bosch. Imagine an Afrikaans version of a good version of a solo artist, and once more, you get Bouwer. Since Straatligkinders decided to call it a day (please Lord, let it just be a one of those...

FTTW Meets Louis Min...

I couldn’t be happier for Fire Through The Window right now. The new video is out, signalling the impending arrival of the new EP, which in turn should bear new fruit, new fans and new steps planted down on their journey to success. I get it, I’m being quite soppy and...

Van Coke Kartel̵...

So here’s the brand new music video from one of our favourite bands, Van Coke Kartel. It’s the second single off their brand new album titled Wie’s Bang. I personally own this album and can vouch for it’s awesomeness, driving guitars and true-to-form dutchie...

This is why Youtube was invented. It’s not Braaiday, but hell it’s lyrically pretty epic. Gingers, hey? Where we gonna put ’em! Sharing is...

Tim Wells Album Laun...

The incredible Tim Wells and his equally triumphant Blues Band will be launching his new album tonight at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre. I can let you in on a little secret and tell you that this is no normal Blues party, given the fact that I have on good measure that Hip-Hop’s newest...

Hello Durban? New Ye...

So… I did a 3 month stint in retail, got married, moved into a new place and then had my little business turn quite promising… Great stuff, but too little blogging. So here’s to 2012: More artist interviews, more reviews, more competitions, more hassling the newspapers, more...

The Rapist Has Been Caught.

The man we have all come to know as Thomas Bester, among many aliases, has been arrested. He was picked up yesterday in Joburg and will be shipped down to Durban on Monday. Greatest thank yous go out to the Durban North SAPS who worked so tirelessy and selflessly for our city’s safety. ‘Nuff said! It’s finally over. Sharing is caring:FacebookTwitterPinterestGoogleEmail

So you’re probably one and a half hours into work already, and, well, you’ve got an entire week still to go.. So why not start off by laughing a bit. Here’s another vid from the guys over at Epic Rap Battles of History (Thanks Rogan, it’s changed my life). This one...

Coffee Culture, Less...

Today’s lesson arrives on your computer screens through the work of a foreign import. A Joburg man turned coastal cuzzie. Dylan Da Silva is the Regional Director for Joburg’s Mokador Coffees and is the type of guy whose email signature simply states “Life’s too short to...

So…if I was you and the world (Durban’s good enough) was my oyster, this is what I would do on Friday night… If last year’s ‘Interpret Durban’ is anything to go by then this year is going to be even MORE awesome – City Hall, amazing judges (our very...

Hi, My Name Is Mark Zuckerberg.. And I Like To Party: Introducing “Timeline” I saw a link in my personal twitter feed a few minutes ago that seemed to good to be true. At this year’s F8 conference, think of it as a really big Southern Baptist Crusade Conference for...

The lads from Story Sessions are out doing themselves, much like tomorrow’s second installment of Interpret Durban, they’re going bigger and better all the time. Given this weeks focus on the Hurley Pro, and Kelly Slater’s win last night, it seems only fitting that this is...
