Picture this, you’re taking a nap at your parents house after a reckless weekend in Jozi, playing at one of the shows that never fails to amaze the energy-filled crowd. Yup, you’re recovering from smashing it at Boosh! Now, imagine waking up to the news that your 7 piece band has just been chosen to “Open The City”.
Well, that’s exactly what happened to Josh from Grassy Spark a short week ago, and let me just tell you – he’s fucking pumped. Josh and the rest of the crew will be opening for the likes of The Kooks, Milky Chance and The Cat Empire this coming weekend, not once but twice.
Firstly it’ll be a joyous home crowd at Rocking The Daisies in Cape Town and less than 24 hours later they’ll be doing the same damn thing for Jozi’s crowd at In The City. As you can imagine excitement levels are high and that made for a rad phone call with the dude.
This is actually the third time we’ve interviewed Grassy Spark and the progression these dudes have made throughout the years is inspirational to say the least. We discussed what it’s taken to get from where they were to where they are now and as far as we can tell it’s all boiled down to hard work.
If you’ve yet to follow their social channels, you’ve missed out on a campaign a digital agency would be proud of. These guys have realised how important it is as a band to properly market themselves, while every other band was begging fans for support and votes – these dudes were giving their fans reasons to vote for them. Like, dude this shit is pure class ->
With weekly releases much like the video above, the bands social channels have grown at a rate of 150 likes a week, that’s pretty damn good. Now, while their entire character as a band is all just fun and games, Josh has informed us that they are very serious about this, they don’t see this as a small time thing and are planning to continue kicking ass and growing as a band. We wish them nothing but the best of luck and cannot wait for them to break into the big time and tour internationally.
Oh shit, you thought we were going to tell you how rad these dudes are and then not even give you a chance to witness the freshness? Pshh, head on over to our Facebook page and tell us who won ‘Open The City’ and stand a chance of winning double tickets to this weekends madness ;)
P.S – this is who bru – – – – – –
