On Friday night @BaasDeBeer and I made our way to the Jose Cuervo #PartyAnimals event at Town Hall in Newtown, Johannesburg. Opting for the safe way to get there, we took the Hotbox Express bus and arrived at the venue between 7 and 8 PM. Collecting our tags was a breeze and before you could say “Cuervo” we were having our first beers at the bar.
After watching the amazing Vampire 9000, it was Shortstraw’s turn to entertain the party-hungry Johannesburg crowd. They played one of the best sets that I’ve seen them play in 2013 and entertained the crowd to the max. The majority of the crowd (fueled by Jose Cuero shots) were singing along to songs like “Bikini Weather”, “Couch Patato” and “Keanu Reeves” in no time. The vibe was electric – something that I’ve come to expect from events that are hosted in Newtown. It might be one of the dodgier parts of Joburg, but that has never stopped anyone from having a good time.
After enjoying some Jose Cuervo shots with @bangersandnash and @chrismaider, I snapped this photo of Shortstraw on stage at Jose Cuervo #PartyAnimals. It has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 28th of November 2013.
