Black Dog

Holy Shmoly I released a track today. It's called Black Dog.
It's super rocky and hard. My hardest track to date.
You can listen to it here if you like http://soundcloud.com/fionahare/black-d0g

Don Pedros

For locals and lovers, travellers and gypsies, this restaurant is a treat. Don Pedros was originally opened in the 1990's, a popular drinking spot, and has recently been taken over by Madame Zingaras. It is quirky and fun, like most of their restaurants, and you can dine while listening to cabaret. (Find out what night it's on, it's a R20 cover charge but so worth it taking you back to the70's) I thought the food was great, the prices good, and the experience was all round memorable. I had the Duck al Orange, and lots of 'champagne'. I'll definitely  be back for more.
113 Roodebloem rd, Woodstock


I've been feeling nomadic of late. it's the gypsy spirit stirring again. luckily i've planned my life so that i'm away every weekend until Christmas. lots of west coast trips, ocean, music and sun. the beautiful life on the open road. here are some beauties i want for summer.

Indie Shuffle

Hello lovelies. What are you up to? I'm flat on my back (pretending to watch the rugby) but actually blogging. (From my iPhone) (yes I know I'm late to the party) The best thing I can say about my Iphone is the new App I downloaded this morning that streams new, never heard of before Indie music. I was making breakfast, flipping pancakes and streaming new tunes from www.indieshuffle.com Just, go there, you won't be sorry. I promise. (and was created by a fellow South African! Jason Grishkoff) (super awesome)

Evelyn Hart

Evelyn Hart is our very own Florence & the Machine. she is better than Florence. A sweet celtic gothic songstress, she has created her own genre. I cannot describe it, you've got to see it. She held her own, and commandeered a rowdy Waiting Room crowd for over an hour with her voice. you could hear a pin drop. I'm not exaggerating. I've still got goosebumps. Her band members (her fiance is the drummer, plus her guitarist) fit in perfectly with her, weaving spell-binding rhythms and e-bow around her vocals. Here are my pics from Tuesday night, and a link to her Facebook page. I hope you get to see her soon. https://www.facebook.com/evelynhartmusic

Matthew Mole is the business

Matthew is amazing. I saw him live on Tuesday. His voice makes me yearn for something, I don't know what. He has a great humbleness on stage. Accessible. I hope he never changes. If he had a cd out I would by ten. C'mon Matthew, let us have it :) I believe in you. Here are my pics from Tuesday night, at the Waiting Room. I hope you like them. Go and listen to his sounds here http://soundcloud.com/matthew-mole
and go and watch his shows. this boy gonna go far..

a Priceless sunset

I was sitting on Chapman's Peak drive yesterday watching a blood red sun dip into the ocean when I realised I live in the most beautiful city in the world. I realise this is no new realisation, I realise this realisation every day. To have this realisation  every day, how lucky is this? I found the perfect soundtrack for it here. It's an exact reflection of what I was feeling in that moment; Cape Town my humble thanks.  http://www.indieshuffle.com/sunday-night-chill-koreless-sun-glitters-geotic-more/

Kids of Indica

These boys are from Hermanus (where I grew up, I know I know). Quite simply put, they rock out. They cover gorgeous Indie folk songs that opens your heart and makes you feel a whole lot. They have a gorgeous way of slowing a song down and making them more poignant. Both lads have voices on them. Yes, I think you should book these boys for your next event. (I watched them at Wildekrans, the Wildekrans people have good taste in music) Just ask me. Go to their facebook page here - Kids of Indica

Wildekrans Pink Wine Festival

Spring has sprung! Last weekend I went to the Wildekrans Pink Wine Festival. Their Shiraz is top! Here are my pics. Super beautiful Canola fields are in bloom...go wine tasting and overnight in their self catering cottages, it's affordable and the owners are divine! Have a drink at the Botrivier hotel while you're there, a place made of legends.
