Well, last night we had a really sick gig at TheRussian’s Cause4Paws event out in Durbanville. We’ve played a gig there before, and have now been offered to play a couple of gigs out there and made some cool connections, as well as getting some rad crowd response. Definitely worth the trip.
Meanwhile, Forefront have been preparing to record drums and bass at SAE Studios in the very near future, so we’re deep into our preproduction for the 8 tracks we’ll be recording for our first EP. We’ve planned some cool stuff for the EP, but it takes loads of planning and stuff, so it’s still in the early stages, but some cool stuff is definitely coming your way soon. Definitely.
The coolest thing that being involved in the local music scene has showed us is that SA has some mad crazy talent. It’s awesome to see people that we know doing some very very cool stuff on the music front, and we’re working to be a part of it all. We’re all quite inspired at the moment. :’)
We’re in the process of confirming some gigs, so keep in touch for details.
See you all soon.
*Afternoon. How I do enjoy being on holiday. I’ve decided to get up, at last, and do the write thing by making this post. By like, writing it.
Today is Thursday. I know this because yesterday was Wednesday. And because I just checked. Tomorrow is Friday, and we’ll be practising one last time before Cause4Paws this Sunday. For those of you who don’t know, Cause4Paws is a charity event being hosted by The Russian to raise money for The Lucky Lucy Foundation. It will be featuring a line up of 13 bands performing from 14:00 – 20:00, including us. For those of you who don’t know, The Lucky Lucy Foundation is an organisation which looks after abused and neglected animals. They cover rescue, treatment, rehabilitation of the animals and help to find loving homes for them.
It feels great getting involved in an event like this. Yes, The Russian is in Durbanville. Yes, that is mildly inconvenient. But it’s about much more than that. Seeing the amount of sponsors and bands that have gotten involved, seeing the effort being put into the event and the passion people have for the charity, and getting involved yourself, is worth the mild inconvenience. Seeing what people can accomplish if they’re willing to put in effort is inspiring. After all the effort that’s already been put in, the least we can do is overcome the mild inconvenience and support this event. (more…)
