The Frown – 23rd December 2011

I’m accompanying The Frown on the 23rd of December at Cool Runnings, Fourways. If you missed the last time I got on a laptop behind Eve Rakow this show is your chance to watch magic happen ♥

Here is the newest track The Frown is featured on and the genius of SPOEK MATHAMBO really comes through, he’s one talented guy!

And again my favourite South African music video ever 🙂

With all the hype surrounding Eve Rakow at the moment I’m taking my computer on holiday so I can finish up her documentary.

With interviews of her former band mates and back stage moments I’m sure it’ll be entertaining.

The Frown – The National

Ok so this video is amazing not just because I adore Eve Rakow and the music she makes, but to be honest it’s the best South African music video I’ve ever seen.

Tristan Holmes directs and he’s definitely going places (if a student Oscar wasn’t proof enough).

If I had my way South Africa would be sending Eve to SXSW instead of The Parlotones.

There’s talk of a European tour next year and I’m hoping this is true because it would be a shame for people not to see The Frown live.

The Frown Documentary…

So I’ve been throwing all my energy into getting a locked down narrative concept for The Frown doccie and Eve and I have come up with the most amazing angle.

So exciting! Even better we have a principle cine now- Adam Bentel, who’ll be making it beautiful. After going through the footage shot so far for the doccie I decided we needed to call in the big guns and bring a professional on board.

It’s all happening and on Saturday I’ll be driving a car full of lovely people to Alberton to film the birth place of Miss Eve. You can look forward to seeing behind the curtain of Alberton, which is surprisingly like Sandton City on a Saturday.

Call time is 5am which is soul destroying but morning light is a gift.

Can’t wait to start editing!
