OneSight Acoustics Jozi
Given the success over the last 3 years, Ray-Ban will be hosting its highly anticipated music event, ‘OneSight Acoustics’ for the first time in Johannesburg.
Offering only the best in local talent like Hugh Masekela, Shortstraw and many more, The Good Luck Bar will be presenting 4 events for the series during October and November 2016.
I spoke to Tom Revington from Shortstraw to find out more about the event:
Hi, thanks for chatting to DPC again!
Hey boo, that’s all good. We missed you. How things? How the folks? Has Jonathan’s rash cleared up?
Haha all good! How’s the last couple of months been for the band? Any highlights?
Yissis. It has been lekker. We’ve been pretty busy. We were in Europe in May and we currently in Japan. We did no pants karaoke with Desmond and the Tutu’s last night… so yea that was a pretty big deal.
I heard you are working on a new ‘collective’ – Care to share a bit?
Yes, it’s called Them Meddling kids. We wanted to change things up a bit so instead of recording an album we go song by song and release each track separately on the first Friday of every month. Then we collaborate with designers and artists to design the art work for the track. Then we also get directors to pitch ideas for the music videos. But we’re super open to ideas so holla at us if you’re interested. Listen out on Nick Hammon’s show in the morning of the first friday of the month for more details.
Who are Those Meddling Kids?
It’s us and whoever we collaborate with. You wanna be a meddling kid? Check out the people who have meddled with us so far on our site www.shortstraw.co.za/tmk
Will this project eventually be made into a full album? Something we can look forward to in 2017?
Yes. That’s the idea.
Cool, now back to a great show coming up – On the 16th of October you will be performing at OneSight Acoustics. Sounds like a fantastic event. Who or what is OneSight?
It’s a super amazing initiative from Ray-Ban to provide sustainable access to quality vision care to those who can’t afford. They really warm our hearts.
This is the first of four similar events, what can we expect from the first one, and who else will be performing?
It’ll be amazing. A good party for a good cause. So come be part of something special. Hugh Masekela will be a real treat.
Do you have anything special up your sleeves for your set – Maybe some new music?
Yes! A couple newbies. excited. are you?
For sure! How can anyone support OneSight?
Come to the show. Bring your friends. Bring your mom.
Thanks and see you at the event!
