Here’s the full story behind it…
Over the years, I’ve written countless blog posts on cool Durban spots but still find myself compiling a messy list of links and websites every time someone new asks me “So, what’s there to do ’round here?”.
Kick off your Saturday nice and early with coffee, capoeria and chow.
Hella good art, my favourite craft beer and a sneaky spot of shopping? You had me at hello…
The start of something epic…
Get in here!
My new favourite gig with one of my new favourite Durban duos.
Get in on it here…
Wanna hit up Splashy but aint got no cash money? No strezzz!
We got you.
Thanks to the good people over at Jose Cuervo, I’ve got a set of double tickets to give away for Splashy Fen 2015 – Y’know that music fest that runs over Easter Weekend, set in the breathtaking Underberg (the one with the rad rivers to play in all day?). Yeah you know the one.
To stand a chance at getting your hands on ‘em all you have to do is head to the Twitter Machine.
What, pray tell, is a Cuervolucion?
You know that moment when you’re having a relatively chilled jol and then next minute you’re running around starkers except for a stolen sombrero? That catalyst is the start of a Cuervolucion – whether it was those few extra shots of Jose or a dare to down your margarita. It’s that moment you really get too turnt and take it from vibe to “WTF EVEN HAPPENED LAST NIGHT?”
Needless to say, make sure to @ both myself and Mr Cuervo and use the #cuervolucion hashtag.
Not on the Twitter machine? Comment on the Facebook post and give it a share or a like for extra brownie points. Click here.
The winner will be based on the epicness of their Tweet/comment and I will be getting help from JC to judge, so there are no extra points for how much I like you or I’d have to give tickets to all of you petals.
You can enter as many times as ya like and I will be announcing the lucky devil on Twitter and FB on Friday the 27th of March so get a-Tweeting or a-commenting!
Some of my favourite people are back at it again with one killa exhibition.
Ok, so I actually need to do a little copy + paste here, because their press release is hella funny!
“Fox and the Rabbit in partnership with BOS Ice Tea will be hosting their second art exhibition at Spiga on Florida road on March 26th, 2015.
Fox and the Rabbit is the creation of two friends, Charlene and Karla. After attending (many) exhibitions, organising (a lot) of events and then finally joining forces to host their own, (Apocalypse Meow – 2012 held at The Upstairs, Durban) they kind of went into hiding for a while, cause you know, adult life. But with 2015 looming and plenty of fresh meat on the art slopes, they already have a jam-packed calendar of events and collaborations in the pipeline.
First up, in the very near future is FUTURAMA: 2999 which features over 20 artists, ranging in various mediums from abstract to illustrations to photography and even cross-stitching. Artists will visually interpret their version of the year 2999 on earth. Catch the likes of Fiance Knowles (CT), Maxeroo (UK), Damn Vandal (DBN), Tokyo Go Go (DBN), Mykildos (DBN) and many more. You can also enjoy a sweet visual show by VJ Cataract and music by DJ Jol Stransky.
Fox and Rabbit events are all about giving back, so each event is tied up with a local initiative.
FUTURAMA 2999 will take place at The Secret Corner, (back of Spiga – Florida Rd) on Thursday, 26 March 2015 at 6pm. Entrance is R20 and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Thula Thula Rhino Fund.
In true futuristic fashion, the exhibition will mutate into a second version of itself as part of a colab with Open Plan Studio in TRACKSIDES – an urban art event taking place on 28 March in Station Drive. For more info, visit their facebook page.”
See you babes there!
