Day 2 on our “lank kiff tour” was a pleasant affair. The drive from Bloem to Jozi isn’t really that bad or that long and we arrived at The Don’s house just after midday, cracked open a few beers and got into a little relaxation before the day’s impending responsibilities. The first of these was a radio interview at Wits University Radio with Smash Afrika, which will be aired on Tuesday evening next week. Smash just happens to be one of the cooler radio faces we’ve met in our time on this good planet. If only because he is the first radio presenter, in our experience, to say he was gonna come to the show that night… and then actually rock up! What a champ! Let that be a warning to every other would be journalist with sugary false promises of good will and support at the ready. We are onto you! But Smash? Well played sir, well played!
Speaking of the show, it actually went pretty bloody well. We played an acoustic set at a lekker little jol called Wolves which happens to be owned by Shane of Desmond & The Tutu’s fame. The place was packed full, well before we were scheduled to begin, and stayed that way until we’d stopped playing. The crowd showed their appreciation with tumultuous applause after each song… and fuck, we couldn’t have asked for more really. Our first time playing at Wolves, first acoustic show in Jozi, first time for meeting some really awesome people – we must say we’re feeling too good about life right about now. We’d also like to thank our fellow traveler KK for cooking up them delicious cheese, ham, tomato, mayo and vibe rolls. Life savers, one and all!
Tonight we hit Arcade Empire in Pretoria to team up with our good chommies No One’s Arc as well as The December Streets for a solid ball kicker of a show. See all you Pretorianites there!
