Rocking The List

Alright, four days until ROCKING THE DAISIES and I’m slowly grabbing some ideas as to what to take with me, what to leave at home and what to plaster on my friends’ faces while they’re passed out. Joking. Not really.

Toilet Paper
Wet wipes
Toiletries
Towel
Black Plastic Bags
Chow & Booze
Cash
Comfortable shoes
Extra crappy phone if you have one (Nokia 3310)

Hair clip or elastic (your hair won’t be pretty)
Grandpa
Warm clothes

Linkin Park crawling to SA!

Finally, Linkin Park is coming to South Africa and I couldn’t be happier! I fell in love with the hard rock back in the day when I was still a bustling teen whose music taste gathered anything from Linkin Park’s nu metal and Blink 182’s pop punk to Destiny’s Child’s pop R&B and Beastie Boys’ hip hop. But Linkin Park’s raw rock, rap metal and powerful lyrics was my firm favourite. Chester’s voice was my go-to and I hoped that one day I’d see them live. Linkin Park has always been on my music bucket list and finally they’ve made the move to tour Africa. After a decade of adoration, Linkin Park is stopping by in Jozi and Cape Town in November 2012.

7 November – Cape Town

10 November – Johannesburg
