Some of the live bands I managed to catch at Rocking the Daisies 2014 included:
- Shortstraw (who were great as they played on Friday afternoon last year and there was no way I could get there in time to catch the gig). This year’s set went down really well.
- I also heard a lot about Black Cat Bones but they weren’t particularly well supported as the electro-dome was going off.
- Crystal Fighters – although not my taste in music, they put on a care filled performance (unlike MGMT who couldn’t give two hoots about being in South Africa – embarrassingly so.). I’d definitely watch them again and enjoyed the show.
- I also caught South Africans drum n bass, ska electro band Mix n Blend (Band) who put on an awesome performance.
I really enjoyed Rocking the Daisies 2014 and with 2015 being the 10 year anniversary, I can’t wait to see what’s next!
