All words: Dean Jones.
Over the past few months, Cape Town’s club scene has been unpredictable to say the least. With a handful of venues either closing or changing hands, the local clubbing community has been left with very few options, particularly ones which are grounded on integrity and maintaining an inclusive ethos. With the summer festival culture dominating most of the city’s party life, club owners and promoters have, in many cases, resorted to changing their direction for the sake of keeping their doors open. Though this may seem all doom-and-gloom, it is a situation that has also opened doors for those who are willing to take the risk in creating spaces that transcend the normal standards of Cape Town’s nightlife.
Never shying away from taking a chance and being different, the team at We House Sundays has done just that. Known for their unique and well-attended end-of-weekend events at Colorbox in Paarden Eiland, they have opened new space in the heart of the city centre with the help of Ballantines.
With a refreshingly clear emphasis on South African sounds, the True Music Pop-Up Club sets the tone for this summer’s intimate clubbing experience. The space itself is deliberately focused on the 200 to 250-person audience’s intimate experience of the music, with very few flashy distractions. The beautiful space is characterised by authentic design, rustic finishes and excellent sound, all of which contribute to the perfect setting for extended DJ sets from icons of South Africa’s club and dance music culture and beyond.
This Friday sees Part Two of the True Music Showcase series feature local DJ, producer and label owner Rob Toca (Kalushi Recordings) who will be supported by True Music resident Lawrence Dix.
Entrance Fee: R100 | Ladies Free before 10pm!
