BEAST – ‘Bardo’ exclusive acoustic launch at the Cape Town Club

Sat 21 February 2015

BEAST are an incredibly raw and energetic band, so I was surprised when last I saw them at how much I really loved their acoustic performance. They’re a band that understand that ‘acoustic’ means actually reworking the material for a quieter context and they really, really do it well.

As a thank you to backers of their new album and their family and friends, the band held a private acoustic launch of Bardo at the Cape Town Club last Saturday. The incredible venue perfectly matched their stunning performance.
