It's Oktober time

2010-10-01 00:00

NEXT weekend sees the first Pecanwood Oktoberfest in the midlands which, among other things, features performances by a number of KwaZulu-Natal acts, including Durban-based rock ‘n roll outfit, Catlike Thieves.

The four-piece band has been carving away since mid-2008, and says that its target audience ranges “from the trailers in Benoni to the lofts in Cape town” where their old-school-meets-Britney vibe reaches beyond the roots of care-free rock ‘n roll.

The band’s shortlist of influences includes Green Day, Yellowcard, the Beach Boys, Wolfmother, AC/DC, James Brown and New Found Glory. While working on its debut recording, the band has achieved many of its goals, including performances at two consecutive Mr Price Pros, White Mountain folk Festivals and Splashy Fen, and it has shared the stage with Zebra and Giraffe and The Parlotones.
