THE ROCK ‘N ROLLERCOASTER PRESENTS: VAN COKE KARTEL

The Assembly in Harrington Street, Cape Town, has just introduced a new series of events they will be hosting starting in October entitled: “Assembly Radio Live – The Rock ‘n Rollercoaster Presents…”, a series unique to its kind of which intimate approach and unique setting has rarely been seen before in the Mother City.

A combination of the concept of VH1 Storytellers and MTV Unplugged – the series will host some of South Africa’s top music acts and offer fans, music fanatics, media and industry insiders the chance to interact with some of the biggest bands our country has to offer on a personal level.

“The idea came about when we considered the potential of Assembly Radio with the offering of The Assembly venue. It makes sense that when you combine the two elements, you get something very unique and new to the music scene. From the inception of Assembly Radio, Dylan Culhane’s Rock ‘n Rollercoaster show (which is broadcasted on Monday evenings) has been a stalwart in the line-up of shows, proudly waving the flag for the Rock ‘n Roll genre on the station. Week after week, the Rock ‘n Rollercoaster show provides our audience with great music and intriguing discussions and with Dylan’s ability to interview and get the most out of his subjects, it makes the perfect match for this event.”

Thus, the Rock ‘n Rollercoaster show will be taken from the radio booth and given a much larger platform on the stage whilst inviting an audience to participate. Some of South Africa’s most influential artists and bands have been selected to perform acoustically and chat with Dylan Culhane in a very informal and relaxed setting. The audience will also have their chance to chat to the band and participate in the conversation.

Not only will the events offer a complete different experience than what fans are used to at The Assembly, but the venue itself will also be very different on the night. They will be bringing the stage to the crowd and creating a more intimate environment so that attendees can be a part of the evening. The appearance of the band will be broken up into live acoustic performances in between questions from Dylan as well as the crowd attending. The duration of the appearance will be around two hours, whereafter the audience is welcome to see the night out at the venue. The evening will also be live broadcasted on Assembly Radio, and filmed for later viewing by fans.

“The live broadcast element allows fans nationally and internationally to tune in and be a part of the evening. The intimate conversational style of the evening sets it apart from other events, as well as giving the audience the opportunity to take part in the conversation.”

“Assembly Radio Live – The Rock n Rollercoaster Presents…” Offers:

– An intimate, unique experience with some of SA’s top music acts and artists.
– Hosted on a Monday, the chance to start your week interacting with your favourite band.
– The public and fans have the unique opportunity to join in the conversation and hear first hand what their favourite acts have to say.
– Media gains content directly from the horse’s mouth and no further investigation is necessary. They get the opportunity to gain information from the artists on stage, as well as the various other industry personalities attending in the audience.
– The SA music industry have the chance to be a part of a creative platform that will include media, fans and peers from the industry. This platform allows them to share and gain ideas and stories, as well as a networking and relationship-building opportunity.

Join Assembly Radio and The Rock ‘n Rollercoaster with Dylan Culhane for an evening of interviews and LIVE acoustic performances from Van Coke Kartel – the first in a series of events unique to its kind in Cape Town.

Date: Monday, 28 October 2013

THE EDITIONS SHOW OPENING PHOTOS

DSC08672

We went to the opening of The Editions Show at the Salon91 Contemporary Art Collection, 91 Kloof Street, Cape Town, last night. These are some snapshots from the opening, but they really don’t do the exhibition justice. You actually need to go there and look at the artworks yourself to fully appreciate just how good they are. We were blown away by the skill and quality of most of the work, and would highly recommend that, if you’re in Cape Town, you get your butt down there and spend some time there browsing the art. The exhibition is open until the 24th of August.

Featured artists:
Adrie Le Roux, Alice Edy, Andrew Sutherland, Annika de Korte, Ben Winfield, Bruce Mackay, Carmen Ziervogel, Caroline Mackintosh, Cassandra Leigh Johnson, Charles Haupt, Claudette Maskell, Clement de Bruin, Cynthia Edwards, Dani Loureiro, Donna Solovei, Dylan Culhane, Fred Clarke, Galia Gluckman, Gerhard Human, Hanno van Zyl, Hugh Byrne, Jade Klara, Jason de Villiers, Jay Gordon, Jono Dry, Jop Kunneke, Kirsten Sims, Louis Minnaar, Marchand, Mareliza Nel, Mieke van der Merwe, Neill Wright, Otto du Plessis, Sarah Pratt, Simon Berndt, Sinead Turnham, Ulrich Knoblauch & Zelda Weber.
