Exclusive Books warehouse sale

Book lovers are marking days off the calendar until the Exclusive Books Warehouse sale. Originally set to take place from 31 July – August 3, the event is starting two days earlier – on 29 July – due to high demand. The Facebook event page alone has clocked 19,000 RSVPs to date and only a few hundred “maybes”. At R20 a book, all proceeds will be donated to literacy charities. The sale takes place at 31 Commerce Crescent, Kramerville from 9am – 4pm. Coincidentally, The South African Book Fair 2015 also takes place 31 July – August 2 at Turbine Hall, Newtown where bibliophiles can meet anew and established authors and listen to lectures or simply find a quiet space and get stuck in a good book. This year’s theme is #DiscoverYourBookshelf
Mandela Day SA Book Fair

DeepAvenue Sndsystem

Here’s a good way to expose your discerning ears to new sounds: DeepAvenue (Official) presents DeepAvenue Sndsystm monthly offerings of some of the best sounds in Jozi, hosted at various venues around the city. Revellers can look forward to nu-disco, deep house, hip-hop, nu-jazz tunes and more. The #deepavesndsystm resident DJs include DJ Kongisto, PolyesterVelcro and Vitamin Disco with featured special guest players every month kicking off with vinyl maestro DJ Bubbles on 26 July at Poolside in Maboneng.


Kid Fonque presents #2sidesofthebeat featuring The Brother Moves On (live) and hip-hop and neo-soul artist Themba Lunacy. This collaborative effort featuring BMO – known for their ability (and need) to escape definition or categorization – should make for an electric performance. The event takes place on 31 July at 7pm Kitchener’s Carvery Bar in Braamfontein.
