Last night I made my way to Mokha Rock Lounge to catch Valiant Swart in concert. The Action Thrillers and Pedro Barbosa (of Mrs B fame) were the opening acts on the evening. Mokha Rock Lounge is definitely one of my favorite venues in Pretoria. The vibe is absolutely chilled out. The food is excellent and the booze is cold and is also priced reasonably. It was the first time since Where BLUES Meets ROCK (in February) that I saw Valiant Swart perform. Seeing him perform with his band for the first time since the KFC Sessions final in 2010 (which was held in Hatfield Square) was absolutely awesome. Valiant Swart will always have a special place in my heart. I still remember seeing him perform the first time in the late 1990s at Shaft (a forgotten venue that used to be a across the road from the Tuks mens hostels). I’ve probably seen Valiant Swart live more than 20 times over the years. I snapped this photo of Valiant Swart performing last night and it has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 24th of April 2011.
