Cape Town – If you live in Cape Town then you should be familiar with the live music venue, The Assembly.

And if you’ve been to a show there before, you know that it’s a rocking venue which features all the big, current and loud acts in South Africa.

This year however, they have decided to bring local music fans one night in the week where they can experience something different. Teaming up with SA Music Scene, The Assembly has announced Thursday night band nights.

What exactly is SA Music Scene & The Assembly's Thursday night band nights? It is a night which aims to support and give small bands, unusual acts and acoustic acts and singer songwriters a chance to take to the stage.

They are launching their very first band night this Thursday, which is tonight, where you can expect to see David Meulen, Retro Dizzy and The Bear take to the stage.
