Venue: Quay 5, V&A Waterfront
“True musicians, seasoned performers with endearing stage personalities, Zoid and Van Coke made the expansive Arena feel less big and cold.”
What a perfect antidote to a long Monday at the office. The weekly get-together at the Barleycorn Music Club is an open-mic event, one you’ll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else in Cape Town. Apart from its primary role of showcasing local talent, Barleycorn has created a unique culture of appreciation for musicians. Audience members are not indulging in drinks and conversations while bands selflessly serenade in the background. Rather, we’re sitting and listening in attentive silence.
