But if I don't come back, then I won't look behind me.
All of the things that I thought were so easy
Just got harder and harder each day.
Calendar girl who's in love with the world, stay alive.
Calendar girl who's in love with the world, stay alive!
I dreamed I was dying; as I so often do,
And when I awoke I was sure it was true.
I ran to the window, threw my head to the sky
And said, "whoever is up there, please don't let me die!"
January, February, March, April, May- I'm alive.
June, July, August, September, October I'm alive
November, December, all through the winter, I'm alive!
-Stars, Calendar Girl

Captain Stu and Zinkplaat at Zula, Cape Town
Captain Stu and Zinkplaat seek to bring English- and Afrikaans people together. This is Zinkplaat's first EVER gig in Cape Town. Srsly.
City Bowl Mizers and Mr Cat & The Jackal at Bohemia, Stellenbosch
The Mizers have trekked all the way from Durbs, bru. They don't come here all too often, so you may want to catch them while you can.
Friday, 14 August:
GeROOSter at Paul Roos Gymnasium
This year's line-up includes... Well, you can see from the poster.
Taxi Violence at Mercury
Launching their new album, and I have heard many a good thing about it! Plus, they're always worth seeing live.
Saturday, 15 August
Pretty Blue Guns, City Bowl Mizers and The Revelators at Mercury
Also launching their new album, you can catch the Cutting Heads Stellenbosch leg next week at Klein Libertas Theatre if you can't make it to Cape Town.
Chris Chameleon and Foto Na Dans at Assembly
An interesting combination, certainly, but definitely two top local acts. A must-see, in my opinion.The Dirty Skirts and The Problematiques at Zula Bar
There's a good chance you haven't seen The Problematiques yet. Well, here's your chance. And I'd be interested to see what The Skirts do on such a small stage after Oppikoppi and other bigger crowds and -stages.
And that's about it. Good luck making up your mind! If you have any suggestions foe me, let me know, please.
