On Thursday night I made my way to Mokha Rock Lounge to catch Mr Cat and the Jackal and aKING on the Pretoria leg of their 4 city tour of South Africa. The Pretoria faithful were blown away by the brilliance that is Mr Cat and the Jackal. Their blend of what many people call “Pirate folk ‘n roll” had the Mokha Rock Lounge crowd wiggling and bobbing their heads up and down. They are definitely one of the bands to watch in 2011. Mr Cat and the Jackal released their 2nd album entitled Sins and Siren Songs in February 2011. If you get a chance to see them live you should definitely take it. There truly is no one like them in the South African music industry. They are absolutely unique. I snapped this photo of Mr Cat and the Jackal on stage at Mokha Rock Lounge and it has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 21st of May 2011.
