Wolves Cafe, music and Angiepants

Friday, March 18, 2011

On Thursday my friends and I finally made the long trek from the east of Joburg to Wolves Cafe , to check out my friend's band No Dancing! on the cafe's Howl night. I have been pining, yearning, hankering! to go to Wolves since I first heard/read/dreamt about it. In one word, its very unusual. And I love it!

Wowzer, the band was AWESOME! Although I didn't get to meet blogger-extraordinaire and co-owner of Wolves Angie from Lucky Pony , she had time earlier this week to have little chat:

Question numero uno
Wolves Cafe has a weekly music night to celebrate the local and dare I say obscure scene. How and why did this start?
It started with Shane’s (my husband) love for music and local bands. He just felt that it would be cool to have a place that showcases bands that people haven’t yet had the chance to discover and enjoy. And together Shane and I were really keen on creating an event like Howl to give people in Joburg something to do.

The second question
What type of music do you listen to?

hmmm....I listen to all kinds of music. Until recently I shared an office with a friend who is obsessed with music and finding new songs/bands, so I was constantly exposed to new stuff. I think the only time I really choose music based on my emotional state is when I feel like dancing uncontrollable in my house to songs like ‘You Shook Me All Night Long’ by AC/DC.

Question the Third
Hah, your friend and I are ridiculously the same! You are married to a musician. Describe the life with a musician in a few words.
there are songs out there that are specifically about you, which is awesome - need I say more?  :)

Die vierte Frage
What is your music guilty pleasure?
Wham! Hahhaa!

Last but not least
What does music mean to you?
When I was younger I always used to imagine this scenario – if I was stuck on a desert island and I was only allowed TV or music for the rest of my life, which would I choose? I chose music every time. I love it so much, I love how it makes you feel, how it can bring you to tears or remind you of a specific place or person, or how it can make you just want to jump around and air punch the sky like a nutcase, or just lie on the floor and listen with your eyes closed. Music is like sherbet in a straw (remember those?), awesome and sherbity, yes.

 Aaah, the nostalgia of sherbet straws! I love this woman!
 Disclaimer: Last night, my camera gave me the finger, so pics are via.
