Oh when the Saints

Last night I got to hang out with Suburban Saints who have come to SA on their first international tour, not only can they down beers like it’s going out of fashion but they are also pretty funny. You can catch their first show in Joburg on Saturday at The Woods with Desmond. For a full list of their shows click here!  You can win tickets to the show, all you need to do is check out my FB page.

I can’t really describe their music but if I had to I would go with a mix of Brit Pop/ Indie Rock…but you should probably take a listen for yourself!

These are my two  fav songs of theirs    

The guys all met while studying music production at University in Aberdeen  and in true Indie style don’t care much for money and would love to quit their day jobs and just play music and hang out with each other and of course  pick on David..  They are super excited to be in SA so let’s show them a good time!
