Hey all you cool cats in Cape Town, here is something sooo radical for you this February. This month, The BOHEMIA in Stellenbosch and Robertson Winery team up to bring you local music every Thursday night for absolutely FREE. The line-up for February includes six of South Africa’s most exciting acts, and as always their performances go hand in hand with awesome drink specials. Be sure to catch the following bands and artists this month, kicking off right now:
Fresh from opening for Bastille in Cape Town and playing at Up The Creek, Bed on Bricks celebrates their 10th birthday this year. A band that has appeared on stages all around South Africa, headlining many local festivals and touring the country, while also releasing three studio albums, returns to Bohemia’s stage this month.
Beatenberg is a fresh new face in pop music from South Africa. Or rather, three faces, handsome and young and intelligent. The faces are of Matthew Field, who also has a beautiful voice and plays the guitar, Ross Dorkin, who has beautiful hands that play the bass, and Robin Brink, who has a beautiful life-force and plays the drums like a nutcase.
No stranger to the Bohemia stage, We Set Sail say it in their own words: “Like everyone else we are in a band and we play shows every few months. You should come to one!”
Joining them on the 20th, will be Croak.
3rd World Spectator is an alternative rock band comprising a mixture of soaring vocals, huge guitars, titanic drums and emotionally charged song writing. In their first year of existence they managed to be crowned the Best Unsigned Band in South Africa in the Virgin Mobile Road To V contest and shared the stage with international heavyweights Maroon5 and OneRepublic. After working on their debut album The Theory of Everything for two years, the band has emerged with a world class product produced by Jürgen von Wechmar and mastered by John Davis (U2, The Prodigy, Snow Patrol). They are currently working on their second album, set for release in 2014.
Guitarist, vocalist, singer, songwriter, composer – Frank Freeman joins them on the night and looks forward to once more return to Bohemia’s stage in February.
