There are few better ways to soak up the sun on a Saturday afternoon than to be relaxing on a picnic blanket, drink in hand, listening to some wonderful sets from some of the best local musicians.
Saturday dawned sunny with a chance of sunburn, if, like me, you forgot to apply a generous amount of sunscreen. There was much to look forward to on the music front. With Jeremy Loops launching his eagerly anticipated album ‘Critical as Water’. Nic Preen, formerly of the band Al Bairre, making his debut with his new band ‘Nicpreen and The World of Birds’. Lastly, a set from local favourite Tresor.
Jeremy Loops’ Joyeous Levels
The excitement was palpable as everyone waited for Jeremy Loops to take the stage and once his set began he certainly did not disappoint. Supported by his incredible band, his set was dynamic and full of energy. Performing the songs “Waves”, “Freak” and “The Shore” from his new album ‘Critical as Water’ for the first time in Joburg, he had the crowd excitedly pretending to sing along, as they didn’t quite know the lyrics yet; while his better-known hits had everyone in the crowd jumping up and down.
All-in-all I thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon at Large on the Lawn, this past Saturday. The event was extremely well run, in true BreakOut style and I’m really looking forward to another enjoyable afternoon in the sun (rain clouds will definitely not be permitted to enter).
