The Brother Moves On ETA Launch

The Brother Moves On have spent this year making a name for themselves, so naturally, only about five people in Durban have heard of them. They recently braved the trip down to the 031 to launch their ETA EP at Live with Fruits & Veggies and Car Boot Vendors joining them on the bill. They made an impact on the crowd that was there and our new guy Msizi Sithole, who lets you know his thoughts on the show after the jump.     “The Brother... Read More

The Winston Rises

We don’t need some long winded introduction to this do we? It’s a review of The Winston’s Re-opening featuring City Bowl Mizers, STRAGE and D’urban Knights by Luke Smith. Just read it.     It’s difficult to talk about the Friday before last without some preamble on the Winston and its legacy. Aptly nestled in the grey between Umbilo and Glenwood, for years the blackened hangout with its god awful smelling toilets... Read More
