Events And Gig Guide - 4 August
Submitted by capdog on Thursday, August 3, 2006 - 06:50

Lots of things going down this weekend, and there's a public holiday next Wednesday, so let's get into it...

Thursday 3rd August

Tonight Society will be screening a movie! Yes you read that right. It's called Tabon, and it's about an artist who takes his friend on a quest to meet a lesbian in Maputo. I kid you not. Sounds like very interesting viewing. 8pm, 178 Florida Road.









Friday 4th August

Triphazard Soundsystem presents Nick Grater (Powertoolz/Cluster) and UK DJ/Producer Zeus (Roots), plus OneTrackMike and KidColt. The_looking_glass highly recommends this gig. It's at The Willowvale Hotel, R40.









Also on Friday, Flash Republic will be mixing tracks at Society, 9pm, R40. From the Gresham Records site:

Flash Republic's media & tour campaign will be directed at the established South African & International dance market with the inclusion of the gay and university audiences. In addition, we will enter into the Kwaito market, with single remixes. (Ages range 18 - 35 years)

Within this primary target market Flash Republic will include the existing fan base of Tamara Dey, Ryan Dent and Craig Massiv (Ages range 6 - 30 years).

Expect to see some 6 year-old gay kwaito-lovin' varsity students dancing the night away! Go check the show out it promises to be an awesome event.

Saturday 5th August

The Jazzy Rainbow presents Funk Fry, it's R10 to get in, no under 25's and the address is 93 Goble Road.













Deity's Muse will be launching their CD at Burn, it's called The Eyes Don't See What The Heart Bleeds and Dopescape will be supporting them.

Johannesburg's DEITY's MUSE has being kicking hard around the indie scene for a number of years. With their Paracetomol EP in 2004 they showed promise but it's with the forthcoming full length The Eyes Don't See What the Heart Bleeds that they establish themselves as one of South Africa's top rock acts. Make sure that you catch them for the cd launch at Red Door on Friday, August 4, and at Burn, with DOPESCAPE, on Saturday, August 5.









Tuesday 8th August (Wednesday is a public holiday)

Come party on Virginia Beach for a Full Moon Drum Circle! I know a few of us will be taking some fire toys for a show!

Cost of entry is a donation for the Car Guards and a bag of wood for the Bonfire!!! Bring chairs, rugs, picnic baskets, refreshments, water etc, and warm clothes! Drums, Didges and all other musical instruments, Fire Dancers, or just supporters, spectators, family & friends... ALL WELCOME! From 5.30pm... till late!! For directions or more info contact: Jo 084 471 1907 dolphindreams@telkomsa.net









I haven't quite managed to work out what it is, but something called The Space is launching at 105 Florida Road. They promise free drinks from 5.30, and a party at Society from 8pm.

Nice! I'm stoked for that drum circle! Are you coming? Can't wait to spin some fire again.

I hope they've organised some security, otherwise it could be dodge.

Society are still useless. i never heard anythng about Flash republic until i read this post now. They need proper PR and Marketing people in that place.

Regards the Space, they are supposedly taking the existing concept and tweaking it, adding in many other elements. cos it has the hair salon component and a few other things i'm told.

Thought that DDE was only closing for the buildings revamp? anyway the DDE is in a crap spot, no parking or passing trade.

Rumor has it that Society don't advertise on purpose. They don't want to seem like they need the business or something.

There is some sense in doing that, you maintain a certain level of exclusivity. However, I'm not sure it's a good strategy, especially in Durban and when having awesome events that would draw big crowds.

I've also seen them have a big dress up party (think it was a Moet party), which was completely dead. There were 10 people or something ridiculous. I'm not saying advertising is the solution, but it's a step in the right direction!

They do have a mailing list which you can join at www.southislandsociety.com. Dysan1, are you getting the mail that is sent from durbanscouts.za.net mailing list? It's a weekly gig guide.
