Good afternoon all! What a great day it is in Cape Town… Specifically one for hard work and gratitude. The tiny seed that was the idea for The Pressure has sprouted into a lovely green sapling full of potential, eager to grow every month. Yay us! Thank you to everyone who has helped us make this happen. Emisang and I are like proud parents, watching this concept develop into something we could never have imagined. Much love and many thanks. Onward!
August 25th is when you’ll see us next. Co-Ordinator Luyanda Peter has called us in to curate the sound at an exhibition held by Anelisa Mangcu and Yang Zhao in support of Women’s Month, which is a great opportunity for all involved to raise awareness, give back to charity and appreciate art, music and people while paying homage all at once, which makes us feel a lot more philanthropic about our Friday nights about town…
So the exhibit has a strictly female theme, and submissions from the likes of Max Mogale, Mpumelelo Macu, Danielle Clough and other such talented phenoms have offered to submit their selected artworks, from which a chosen few will exhibit on the day. Look — They even have a blog: http://womensmonth.tumblr.com/ on which all the submissions will be shown. Speaking of which, submissions are still open, so don’t be shy, contact Anelisa or Yang at firstname.lastname@example.org if you feel your work deserves a place in this exhibit. They do however, close on the 17th, so don’t sleep on this wonderful opportunity!

Also on the bill is guest speaker Janine Jellars, Editor of Seventeen Magazine, who will share her thoughts on empowering young women. Doors open at 18:30, and donations for young women’s charity Ons Plek, will be taken upon arrival. Our featured dj, Olwetu will also aid us in our conquest for providing a great ambiance that speaks to the theme.
This one is not to be missed!
These two prolific acts are touching down in Cape Town this August and performing right here in the Mother City, on the same night… at the same time… At separate venues. What a way to stress out folks who are as loyal to Hip Hop as they are to this new breed of ball-busting beat. It’s a tough one; the debate concerning which show to see is giving our fair city a headache! So what do we here at The Pressure do? Read on…
That very same night we are hosting a session of our own, where one can experience a combination of these two wicked styles of music, jam with like-minded folk and have somewhere to talk smack about how sick either event was right after, and into the early hours… It seems only natural that we do this at Julep, 2 Vredenburg Lane just off Long, in the city’s party centre. Done deal. Doors open at 18:00, so come by for a drink or two, or three… Jam it up because you know your man Emisang doesn’t miss a beat on the decks. We’ll be going while the perforances are on just in case you issed the opportunity to grab a ticket yourself. Then after Kweli and Little Dragon respectively have blown your craniums, come back and end your night with a bang. Details to follow! Stay tuned y’all…
So this edition of BeyondJazz is one of our favourites here at The Pressure, because we do indeed love a good chill when we’re not feeling up to a phat-ass jam. With the likes of Marbert Rocel and Shigeto, all you have to do is spark it up, sit back and enjoy… Dig?
