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.
News of Red Huxley‘s final show came as a surprise to me; I’ve always liked the band and will definitely miss their energy and shows. They said goodbye in style though with a packed show at (the rather unlikely but pretty cool venue choice of) Beerhouse. Since it was also the halloweekend there was the added bonus of some people dressed up.
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 Plastics, Veladraco and Young Hands, as well as the myriad painted cardboard cartoons that filled the venue.
