#FOMOFridays

I’m back! Not that I went anywhere… but this week was a toughie. Stayed off social media, never left the house except for work and was just unconcerned. Couldn’t even find a retrograding planet to blame all of this on. Lol. I’m sure I was people’d out shem. I’m good now. Let’s razzle!

Watching:

I recently discovered The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon Prime Video after taking a break from Netflix. It’s so so good! Granted it’s another white show with white folk, but we’ll allow it. When I saw in the credits that ‎Amy Sherman-Palladino created and writes for the show it made ALL the sense. Fast talking, insane wit, great sets just like her first show Gilmore Girls. It’s my new show right now.

Besides TMMM I was watching Disney’s Mulan all week. I also don’t know. I wasn’t interested in watching humans until just last night. My girl Mulan held me down. Lol. What is everyone else watching? This is where having regular television wins. I’m missing all the SA shows. DSTV needs to come alive with making Showmax a more grown up streaming service.

Listening:

Teyana Taylor’s K.T.S.E. has been on CONSTANT repeat for me. At work, on commute, in the shower, in the kitchen. I am obsessed with her new album. I don’t know how I feel about these albums that only have 7 or 8 songs! I feel like this album was robbed of being a full bodied 12 track work of art. She is giving me old school R&B voice with old Kanye beats and great excerpts from classic hits. Love. I want a part II asap.

Drake is out. Scorpion literally dropped today. At first listen, I’m very much into it. It’s almost a coming together of his debut (lot less pop), ‘Take Care’ (lot less hip-hopping) and ‘Nothing Was Ever The Same’ (less features – but Jay-Z is back – yay!). There’s less ‘Views’ and ‘More Life’ vibes which I don’t hate. We have those in the bag. So far Emotionless is a fave (not just because of Mariah!).

My boos Darkie Fiction dropped their HOT lead single from their long awaited (according to me as their #1 fan) EP Sobabini. “Bhoza” has the nostalgic kwaito sound we all love and crave with Yoza’s beautifully odd vocals and Katt Daddy’s energetic rap. He’s honestly the best ad-libbing hypeman ever. “COME OOOON!” Best.

Doing (Weekend Tingz):

This weekend is insane! It reminds me of one weekend in October last year where I just couldn’t deal. I’m certainly going to try my best to make it to most events.

Tonight the main event is KoolOut’s 10 Year Birthday Celebration at The Good Luck Bar. These guys have been at it since their inception a decade ago in Cape Town and are just expanding and perfecting their formula. Tonight’s concert will have most of all the artist they have worked with including Rogue, Kwesta and Reason.

The first ever Vouge Nights Jozi will be held at JHB Hive tonight hunties. WOKE Arts and founder Lelo Meslani (a.ka. Lelo What’s Good) are all about creating safe and inclusive spaces for the LGBTQ+ community. Allies are obviously welcome (because intersectionality) but you best come correct. Come as any fishy, cunty version of yourself and let’s have some fun.

Basha Uhuru Freedom Festival – The Concert is on tomorrow from 10am at Constitutional Hill. The line up is out of control. I have never to be honest. Big ups to the organisers on this huge feat. R50 for entry. It’s peanuts for everything that’s on offer.

The Pantry Market at Keyes will be a nice little morning to midday sitch. Their winter edition will have all your comfort foods to help deal with this weather. Think breads, cheeses, soups, curries, chocolate, pies the whole lot. Go fill up before the streets claim your name.

It’s month end so you know Feel Good Series is back and this time around in a new venue – King Kong. I can’t say this venue without busting out in Nicki Minaj’s Chun-Li. It will get you too, watch. My super talented babycakes Leon is performing at 6pm tomorrow, so be sure to go check him out along with some new FGS DJs. Also jumping off is the Issa Vibe party just up the road at The Tennis Club. My boo thang Mx Blouse is bringing the groove we love and performing from around midnight. I done said this weekend is insane!

Sunday is JULY! Cancer season and my birth month. It’s also my big brothers birthdays. I don’t know how my mother managed with two cancerians to be honest. Kool Out is hosting their monthly party, Koolin In The City at a rooftop venue – Elevate in Marshalltown. I’m going just to check this chic venue out to be honest. This one is dubbed the DJ edition so you know Akio & P-Kuttah are gonna hold it down with some of Jozi’s top spinners.

There are plenty of markets to check out for a more chill vibe. Sunday Best Selects is back again at Breezeblock from 3pm. Victoria Yards is having their Open Studio Vibes on Sunday. I’ve been once before and it was a great discovery of artisanal jewelry, furniture, artwork and clothing. Check out my post on it here. I totally forgot that The Incredibles 2 is out in cinemas so that’s another alternative, but I cannot with cinemas on weekends. The winter sun is too deelish. I’ll bookmark Edna and the gang for next week.

Whatever you’re doing, have a good one. Hope to see you on some dancefloors because this weekend has a lot of party, music and culture in store.

Happy Friday ❤
