You know when you have F.O.M.O but at the same time you’re supremely intimidated by the thought of going to something? That’s me with STR.CRD.
I heard about this event last week on the radio when I heard about Dirty Paraffin. From what I read, STR.CRD is potentially THE MOST COOL and the predominant underground and street culture festival in AFRICA.
A complete street culture fest it includes EXCLUSIVE Sneakers, international kids who I have never even heard about and and local acts including The BLK JKS, Khuli Chana, and Desmond & the Tutus. B Boys. Graffiti. Parkour. Fashion. Everything Street!
I missed the event last year, but this year it will be held in the MOAD building, Maboneng Precinct. R150-R200 but if you bring in an old pair of Kicks then KICK.BIN will get you in for free.
If I get over the potential overload of cool kids I will be there with my camera up against a wall with my jaw on the floor and a neck brace on from not even knowing what direction to look in.
Tell your mama you’ll be playing in the street that weekend.
