Emerging from their lair in the shadows of a Stellenbosch vineyard, folk-rock band Spoegwolf (Spitting Wolf) will have festinos howling at the moon in the Sundays River Valley this winter.
The four-man band will be “howling at the moon” in the Windhoek Kuiergat from a quarter to 11 on Saturday evening, June 30 as part of the annual Absa Kirkwood Wildsfees brought to you in association with DStv.
“We wanted to be the first to bring the latest Afrikaans rock sensation to the Eastern Cape,” says Absa Kirkwood Wildsfees director Jenni Honsbein.
Their visual, descriptive lyrics and off-the-wall sense of humour have made them one of the country’s most popular up-and-coming Afrikaans pop rock bands. They have built a loyal fan base by offering three free tracks available for download on their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/spoegwolf).
They also love South Africa and are “proud to share this holy ground with David Kramer, Valiant Swart and Bernoldus Niemand. We are honoured to walk here,” says Spoegwolf.
Spoegwolf is made up of Danie du Toit on lead vocals and guitar, Chris von Wielligh on guitar and vocals, Albert van der Merwe on bass and vocals and Moskou du Toit on drums and vocals.
DJ Superman will be back by popular demand at the Windhoek Kuiergat following the performance by Spoegwolf.
Action on the main Windhoek stage starts at two in the afternoon with Lollos “Oe La La Suid-Afrika”, Pieter Koen, David Fourie, Monique, George Longane, Elvis Blue and Band, Heinz Winckler, Charlize Berg, Ray Dylan, DJ Superman, and Arno Carstens and Band.
The Absa Kirkwood Wildsfees brought to you in association with DStv takes place from Friday, June 29, to Sunday, July 1.
