Just A Band, everybody’s favourite band-cum-Kenyan-electronica-amazingness-group have been commissioned by The Goethe Institute with works of video art for their first art show! Here’s a snippet of what’s going down…

Broken synthesizers and fragmented satellite broadcasts from the future provide a fictionalized Kenyan future;
panicked astronauts, lovelorn puppets, a flying tortoise, the meaning of life, an experimental boy band and a sprinkling of sparkly stuff…”

The show runs from Tuesday May 5, 2009 to Saturday May 16, 2009 and will feature premieres of new music videos from Scratch To Reveal and their soon-to-be-released second album – 82 (We now know it’s name!)

Just A Band will mark the finissage with END_TRNSMSSN, a DJ set of their favourite house, electro, pop and funk tunes! And I’m looking forward to that as well.

Entry free….You can’t afford not to be there!

I consider Just A Band as visionaries in the industry and the clearest breath of fresh air in the Kenyan music industry.

If you’re on Facebook, here the link to the event, you can RSVP and do invite others, they’ll be so mad at you if you go alone!
