I’m really excited that Seether is coming to SA next month! They’ll be playing in Cape Town at the Grand West Arena on June 15, so I must go and sort out some tickets soon.

I’m looking forward to seeing their live show. They’ve been touring in the States with Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace, 2 of my FAVOURITE bands. We saw Sean Morgan play an acoustic set at Kirstenbosch Gardens in January this year and it was fantastic – rain and all! And I’m a big fan of their latest album, Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces, despite the common sentiment that it’s just a boring, “cookie-cutter” post-grunge product. Actually, the more I listen to it, the more I like it, so I don’t really care about the bum reviews. Music is highly subjective anyway …

Last year, I splashed out and took Sir G and the boys up to Joburg to see Fall Out Boy, which was a lot of fun (apart from the fact that I was as sick as a dog and didn’t really enjoy all the little teeny boppers). This year, I’m relieved to be spared the great cost of flights and accommodation to go and watch a good concert. Apart from My Coke Fest, we don’t really get many internationally-renowned bands down here in the Cape and I’ve not heard much local music that appeals to me, so I only get to go to 2 or 3 concerts a year and I love every minute of them =)

Seether is going to rock! Can’t wait …

  1. Sir G says:

    Should rock! Im looking forward to it. I must say that i do prefer their older stuff to the new album, but for some reason i really dig FMLYHM… Must be my latent “dark side”. I actually would have loved to go and see Chris Rock at GW, but i was wrong about that extra date – its only in Jhb…
