Local talent... First Project

Managed to see the very impressive adrenaline-fueled band - 1st Project in action last week.

"1st Project is an industrial percussion act with a unique South African element and a pulse of pure primal energy! Combining elements of rock, traditional African rhythms, house and Latin, 1st Project has created a completely original style of music that is guaranteed to touch and entertain audiences of all ages, no matter what their tastes."

Who knew that shirtless boys in Johannesburg pounded the drums with such aggression and energetic abandon? Instead I just bought tickets to Leonard Cohen's North American Tour. At the equivalent of 4425 rands (210 USD/seat), I have two seats for the concert in San Diego, dinner and drinks not included. For $524/seat the venue was selling fourth row center tickets with complimentary DVD and T-shirt. Interesting how you pay extra in the US to get a T-shirt, and in South Africa the draw is that they take them off. At age 74, I would prefer that Lenny keep his shirt on; the suit and fedora are fine with me.

Here's a link to a story about the tour opening concert in NYC, you can listen for free, as long as your internet connection is fast enough, which mine is not:
