Vans Off the Wall Music Night

On the 3rd December, The Assembly in Cape Town will play host to South African version of the ‘Vans Off The Wall Music Night’. It’s an event that is held annually in 26 different countries around the world. It is a punk rock extravaganza and for the first time it will be taking place in South Africa!

Not only will the event feature two stages showcasing more than ten top local acts, but also Catherine Grenfell from 5FM as the MC for the evening and a headline DJ set by DATAROCK!!

DATAROCK is pretty much a global name. Their albums are both critically acclaimed across the world, and even their debut album was nominated for a Norwegian Grammy. Later on the album reached NME’s list of “Best albums of 2006”. DATAROCK’s second album “RED” was also nominated for a Norwegian Grammy, it was “Critics Choice of the Week” in New York Times and stateside MTV even headhunted and put the video for “True Stories” on rotation at MTV U – bizarrely as this single never was commercially released outside of Norway.

Having played more than 700 shows in 33 countires around the world, this will be DATAROCK’s first time in South Africa.
