Love SA Music Launches Live Shows With Desmond & The Tutus And Shortstraw!

Ever since I started Love SA Music, which is almost three years ago, I’ve dreamed of using it as a platform for putting on great live shows with incredible local artists. Finally that time has come, and I couldn’t be more excited! And because aint’ nobody got time to mess around, we’ve gone for two of SA’s hottest bands, both of which really know how to get the party started and the people dancing! We need to celebrate, and that’s why we’ve chosen none other than Desmond & The Tutus and Shortstraw! But that’s not all, we always want to create opportunities for up-and-coming local bands, which is why we’re also announcing a competition where bands can enter to open at this highly anticipated event! Details on how to enter are below. I really hope to see you all there!
