On the 24th of March 2012 @BaasDeBeer, @StephanieJMPta and I made our way to Arcade Empire to catch the 2012 MK Awards Afterparty. After watching the absolutely awesome Cape Town based band Mr Cat and the Jackal the Pretoria faithful were treated by the awesomeness that is Pretoria based Non-Zef Afrikaans rap / electro act Bittereinder. These Pretoria boys tore the crowd a new one last year at Oppikoppi Unknown Brother and did not disappoint at this event either.
Bittereinder are definitely one of my favourite acts around at the moment. They just have the ability to get a bored crowd dancing (and I’m sure that many of you reading this who have seen them live will agree with me). Jaco Van Der Merwe, Peach van Pletzen and Louis Minnaar were joined on stage by Tim Beumers (a rapper from Holland who collaborates with them on their song Slechte Mensen). It was awesome seeing these boys move all around the stage. I snapped this close up photo of Jaco Van Der Merwe on the night at Arcade Empire and it has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 2nd of May 2012.
