Punk goes pop at Mercury

Sat 5
November
2016

Featuring 50% original material and 50% covers (of super commercial pop songs, for the most part), Punk goes pop was highly entertaining for a night containing a such a high concentration of Justin Bieber, Beyonce and Taylor Swift.

Here are some shots from the Cape Town show, featuring Crash Car Burn, Held on Till May and Veladraco.

Here are some shots from the night.

October
2016

I’ve attended several well-decorated nights at Mercury in the last few months and the Shadowfax halloween party was probably the coolest so far – the organisers went all out with the psychadelic/trance party decor and fake cobwebs,  and both the performers (ohgod, Deity’s Muse, Caelo and the Morning Pages) and attendees were encouraged to dress up in the spirit of Halloween.

Here are some shots from the night.

It’s been years since I’ve seen Dance, you’re on fire, and like many I was keen for their return show in Cape Town at Mercury. They shared the stage with The PlasticsVeladraco and Young Hands, as well as the myriad painted cardboard cartoons that filled the venue.
