Park Acoustics has become one of my favorite past times in Pretoria. It’s amazing how huge this Sunday music show that occurs once a month and features some of the best of SA Music has become over the course of the last three years. To me the popularity of Park Acoustics is more proof that local music is alive and well in the capital city.
This week Sunday (the 25th of November) is going to be special. Fokofpolisiekar (who have been around for nearly 10 years and needs no introduction), Matthew Mole (A muso from Cape Town who recently won the Converse Get of the Garage contest and has been making waves ever since), Gil Hockman (a singer-songwriter from Johannesburg), Tailor (a singer-songwriter from Cape Town) and Al Bairre (a symphonic Indie Rock band from Hout Bay) will be entertaining the Pretoria faithful.
And that’s not all that you can look forward to, pack in your funny bone because you’ll be able to enjoy some of the best stand-up comedy that South Africa has to offer. Be prepared to laugh out loud to Kgomotso “The Hit”, Martin Jonas and John Vlismas. The comedy proceedings kick off at 4:30 PM on the day (a half an hour after the last band’s performance). Sounds pretty awesome if you ask me.
Many people are excited about this Sunday’s Park Acoustics. Even Boromir (from Lord of the Rings) is jumping on the Park Acoustics band wagon
