Still half of SA’s good bands and much of the Daisies line-up was sourced in Durban. So why not let them rock their home turf too? Durbs hip hop heroes Big Idea and the rad-rockers Spoonfeedas got a little bit of help from Cape Town (or should that be Long Street) flavoured bungi-rock bouncing band Bed on Bricks.

The Curry remained uneaten (Newsflash: nobody in Durban’s going to pay R30 for a reheated takeaway meal when they can get a bunny at Johnny’s for R2.50) and the venue seemed too big for the 200 people who showed up. But the beer and cider got drunk, which meant the people got drunk, and those that there made up in energy for what they lacked in numbers.

Big Idea
Hear this talented, brainy hip-hop band’s take on making it in Durban, and the best thing a fan has ever done to thank them. Plus see them do their special stuff onstage too. Watch:

- Sucky Broadband

They had the girls climbing onstage – see that live. It’s a trick experience will teach you. But will these guys ever just give up, chill out, and stop playing ching chong cha?

Bed on Bricks
On the weirdest near death experience at a music festival, sweating like rock stars, and things so disgusting you can’t EVEN say them on the Internet. Plus see them rock live

Cape Town parties, a bit like Daisies from Darling, don’t grow easily in Durban, so it was kind of surprising to find the Rocking the Daisies holding a Sowing the Seeds party at a country club in Westville at – wait for it – 6pm on a Friday, when most students and other party goers are at home making doobies and a cheap pasta in preparation for an 8pm start to a warm evening out.
