BLK JKS in Africa – Festival Dates and More

blkjks

Lots of news in the world of BLK JKS leading up to the release of ZOL! on June 8th.

ESPN 2 and ABC in the United States will be broadcasting the FIFA World Cup Celebration Concert. ESPN 2 is going to broadcast it live, so you can see it on Thursday the 10th at 2pm EST, and then I’m going to be able to turn on ABC channel 4 and see the pre-recorded version of BLK JKS playing starting 8pm on Friday, June 11th.  We originally thought you’d only be able to see it online in the US.  Beyond exciting!

Tomorrow BLK JKS will make their first trip to Pretoria, the political capitol of South Africa, to perform at Tings an’ Times, a venue with a rich recent history of breaking bands and the mold.

Then on the 29th BLK JKS will travel to Swaziland to play in the Bush Fire Festival.  The annual festival raises money to provide critical social services to the poverty-stricken and to raise money for Young Heroes, Swaziland’s first Internet-based fund raising initiative and NGO for HIV/AIDS orphans.

In Durban on June 3rd they’ll be playing in the land of SHAKA ZULU for the first time at RAINBOW and attempting to go meet BUSI MHLONGO while they are out there.

We will have some other announcements related to the World Cup shortly, but for now I leave you with the cool remix of “Lakeside” by Fractal that The Fader posted on their site yesterday.
