Durban music picks: January 20 2012

Bluestockings hosts one of KwaZulu-Natal’s most compelling folk acts, The Hinds Brothers.

The duo, whose lyrical acoustic style has long made them a drawcard at festivals, have recently been signed by Sony and are currently putting the finishing touches to a debut album. The evening gets underway with the performance of gentle, beautiful tunes by exciting young singer-songwriter Faye Oakes.

Bluestockings, Kloof, on January 20 at 7.30pm. Entrance is R60 with advance booking essential. Tel: 083?659?3628.

? Despite having dodged fame and fortune for the past decade, Just Jinjer are still credited as being “the number one-selling rock band in South African history”.

This is owed almost solely to the astonishing success of their 1997 debut album, All Comes Round. One suspects, though, that the band will be looking to reclaim their former heights given that they are currently completing a new record. Thus their one-off concert in Durban this week sees Just Jinjer presenting an intriguing blend of their new material with the golden oldies that put them on the local and international maps.

The Barnyard Theatre, Gateway, on January 27. Fans can meet the band in the bar after the show to buy paraphernalia and get autographs. Tickets are R160 with advance booking recommended. Tel: 031?566?3045. Email: [email protected] Website:
