Rise Against Says “Hello South Africa!”18.02.2013 / bynatalie
Rise Against has been my favourite band since I was a teenager. And I don’t mean “one of my favourite bands”. I mean MY FAVOURITE BAND. My love for their music started with the obvious “Swing Life Away” and “Everchanging” and grew to blanket their entire discography. I’ve got all their albums and their tour DVD, which I have watched about 15 times. I’ve even got a Rise Against t-shirt, which a friend of mine ordered online and paid handsome income tax on.
Along with Rise Against, RAMfest is also hosting international acts Bring Me The Horizon and Pendulum. Local acts include Jack Parow, Van Coke Kartel, Goodnight Wembley, The Black Cat Bones, Beast, Fuzigish,Woodstock Mafia and Dead Alphabet. Facing the Gallows, Haggis and Bong, Juggernaut, All Will Fall, Four A Penny, Marching Dead, Pestroy and Chromium. Niskerone, Sideshow, Veranda Panda, Hyphen, Das Kapital, Sibot, P.H.FAT and Tommy Gun. The Ratrod Cats, The Man Motels, Love Glory Pyrotechnics, Crimson House Blues, Holiday Murray, Andy Lund, Gerald Clark, Sons of Settlers, Tailor and Black Handed Kites.
I’ve got a couple of tickets to give away in the next couple of weeks to both the Cape Town and the Joburg shows, so keep this blog open in a tab and keep refreshing if you want to win them. In the meantime, here are some Rise Against videos for you to enjoy.
