It’s the battle of the blogs… but not really, it’s more like South Africa’s best bloggers making sweet love on the dance floor!Your trusted advisors in current news, funny shit, stupid shit, and everything you find rad! It’s about time we got to know the people behind the screen, and what better way to understand these virtual figures then to take a dive into their musical flavour, because you are what you listen to at the end of the day.

The first installment of Lorem Ipsum see’s these rads kids on the decks sharing their favourite tunes!

He hates talking about himself (me) in the third person, so let’s keep this brief. B&N is a lifestyle blog that covers a vast variety of topics, and ignores even more. Music, brands, events, travel, waves, entertainment, festivals, it’s all here.

Take a look around, if you like what you see drop Nash a mail nash@bangersandnash.com

The Beard symbolizes rock ‘n roll, an independence, a movement away from what mainstream culture thinks is appropriate. Its indie. People look at indie as only indie rock music, the way we look at it is indie encompasses music that is independent and not too main stream. Indie can range from your underground electro DJs to your indie rock bands and everything in between. Indie can really be anything that is not too commercial.

We strive to bring you the best indie events (with the occasional commercial festival) and to show you that Jo’burg is one of the most exciting cities to be living in at the moment. Look around you. Believe it. Its happening.

If you’d like us to promote an event send an email to either one of us ::
