Ssshh Live Music Sundays
If you're just not ready to let the weekend go get to Kitchener's on a Sunday for a final serving of live music
There are days when I crave the pure pleasure of good live music. I know that there are any number of great venues in Joburg where I can go to watch live music, but unfortunately these are usually all about something else. Sometimes it's the party; sometimes it's the people, sometimes its thrill of being in a noisy crowd. All of these are great when that's what I'm looking for, but some days I just want music, music, music!
This Sunday I found myself that music, and satisfied my craving at Kitchener's Carvery Bar in Braamfontein. Every Sunday evening Kitchener's hosts a live music night that's all about the music. It is aptly named "Ssshh! (performing artist's name) Live" because that's what they ask you to do: Shuddup and focus on - you guessed it - the music.
These intimate acoustic sessions feature different artists from all over the country, performing great live shows. There is usually a DJ before and after the artist, with plenty of time for chatting and sipping on something sweet. But when the music starts the chattering stops; we sat in a cosy room on scattered chairs or on the floor, and got to lose ourselves in the soft sounds washing over us.
Ssshh events take place each Sunday at Kitchener's, usually from 6pm onwards.
