May Super Rugby Madness comes to Nelson Mandela Bay – Southern Kings

May Super Rugby Madness has come to Nelson Mandela Bay as the Southern Kings continue to strive to make Super Rugby accessible to the people of the region.

“With three home games on the cards in May, starting with the show down against the Waratahs on Saturday, the Highlanders the following weekend and our second game against the Cheetahs at the end of the month, we realised that attending every game could prove quite taxing on the average man in the street’s pocket,” said Southern Kings interim CEO, Charl Crous.

Crous said as a result the Southern Kings, together with the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium operator, Access Management, had decided to launch May Super Rugby Madness, a special rugby ticket package that allowed people to watch all three May home games for the price of two.

“People can now buy a ticket bundle that encompasses all three games, and effectively pay for just two games,” he said.

Crous went on to say that the bundles would be valid across most of the ticket price range offerings, from the R45 ticket offerings behind the poles on North and South, the R75 ticket offerings on the East Pavilion and the R110 ticket offering on the main West Pavilion.

“So where you would normally pay between R135 and R330 for tickets to three games, you will now be paying between R90 and R220,” he said.

Crous said the tickets bundles were available from Computicket outlets, as well as through the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium’s ticketing office and the ticketing office at The Boardwalk, but that the offer was limited to this week only.

“We have really been overwhelmed by the support shown by the people of the region towards the Southern Kings and the idea of having a super rugby franchise in the region and this is just one of the ways for us to say thank you for that ongoing support,” he said.

Crous said the May Super Rugby Madness special was an additional value offering, and people would still be able to purchase tickets to watch individual games.

2013 SOUND ON SCREEN Music Film Festival 26 April – 02 May @ The Labia Theatre (68 Orange Street, Cape Town)

THE EVENT

Since 2005 Flamedrop Productions has created a variety of exciting indie film festivals, including the HorrorFest over Halloween season, the Celludroid Sci-Fi Festival, the X Fest Extreme Film Festival, Daring Doccies Documentary Film Festival, Cinemaniacs special theatrical events, and the Sound On Screen Music Film Festival.
www.flamedrop.com/events

SOUND On SCREEN was created in 2010, and with it we unite movies and music in a cinema environment, resulting in not only entertainment, but also enlightenment and education.

In its 4th year, the event is being screened at The Labia Theatre from 26 April – 2 May, with two of the key films (the Metallica-linked “Mission To Lars” and “Sound Of Noise”) also screening at The Bioscope in Johannesburg.

This audio-visual feast will bring together music- and movie lovers alike, and especially those with an affinity for both, screening a range of exciting feature films and documentaries dealing with this essential part of our existence: Music. Plus a live soundtrack performance to a classic silent film, and Metallica concert ticket give-away via the Facebook page.
Most of these movies will make their African / South African theatrical premiere and cover genres from Rock, Pop and Folk, to Metal, African, Punk and Industrial music.

THE LINE-UP

MISSION TO LARS (courtesy Spicer & Moore)
The acclaimed documentary MISSION TO LARS deals with Tom, a young mentally disabled man whose obsession with METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich has his siblings (including British journalist Kate Spicer) on a whirlwind roadtrip to try and have him meet his idol. This co-incides with Metallica’s tour of South Africa and we’re awaiting word on whether Ulrich can attend the opening screening in Cape Town.
(also screening in Johannesburg)

SOUND OF NOISE
Another drum-related movie is the highly original Swedish-French film SOUND OF NOISE, telling the tale of a tone-deaf cop battling to track down a group of guerilla percussionists whose anarchic public performances are terrorizing the city! (also screening in Johannesburg)

HÄXAN – Live Soundtrack Performance by THE MAKABRA ENSEMBLE (one show in Cape Town only)
The unique Makabra Ensemble will perform their new original soundtrack for the silent classic film HÄXAN (aka HEKSEN / THE WITCH – Sweden 1922) live beneath the big screen. This detailed, visually stunning exploration of witchcraft and its misconceptions through the ages is still an amazing and vivid cinematic experience, enhanced with the powerful, moody and eclectic new, live soundtrack.
With 7 movies scored thus far, the Makabra Ensemble started their cinematic / live music fusion at the South African HorrorFest Film Festival in 2006, and consists of musicians from Terminatryx, Lark, V.O.D, Mr. Sakitumi, and violin genius Matthijs Van Dijk, and they incorporate a wide range of acoustic and electronic instruments, methods and voice, to breathe new life into these legendary films. Live sound supplied by Point Blanc Event Tech Solutions – www.pointblanc.co.za

PUNK IN AFRICA (courtesy Meerkat Media)
This movie takes a look at the Punk genre and its various derivatives in a Southern African context, covering the music, the people, its history and the tumultuous political and social impetus bringing life to the bands behind it. Featuring Suck, Wild Youth, Safari Suits, Power Age, National Wake, KOOS, Kalahari Surfers, The Genuines, Hog Hoggidy Hog, Fuzigish, Sibling Rivalry, 340ml, Panzer, The Rudimentals, Evicted, Sticky Antlers, Freak, LYT, Jagwa Music, Fruits and Veggies, Swivel Foot and more…

AFRICAN DRUM – BEYOND THE BEAT
AFRICAN DRUM is an impressionist portrait of the various social functions of the drum in West African society. The film uses a famous ode to the African drum to demonstrate its pervasive role in society over time. The drum’s social functions range from use in work songs, to communication and religious rituals, through to one of its more contemporary uses, by fans at football games. It takes a special interest in the conception and nature of rhythm and, in dance, the inter-dependent relationship between the drummer and dancer by exploring the effects of drum rhythms on both.
Note: The cinematographer and some of the artists in the documentary will attend the Cape Town screening(s), introduce the film and will be available for questions afterwards.

THE HEART IS A DRUM MACHINE
This documentary looks at what music means to us. Many of today’s top artists and scholars grapple with the question in this cinematic look at a uniquely human obsession. Features musicians, composers, producers, engineers, scholars, scientists & record label owners, including John Frusciante (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Maynard James Keenan (Tool & A Perfect Circle), Matt Sorum (Guns ‘n Roses, Velvet Revolver), Juliette Lewis, Charlie Clouser (Nine Inch Nails), George Clinton (Funkadelic), Kurt Loder, Gene Hoglan (Strapping Young Lad), Eddie Kramer, Bob Ludwig, Wayne Coyne (Flaming Lips), Bijou Phillips, Elijah Wood and many more.

TENSION: 25 YEARS UNDERGROUND
TENSION chronicles the band’s rise in popularity and how they stuck to their guns and refused to bow to the demands of record companies. The film leaves you wondering what would have happened to Tension if they had ‘sold out’ and made it big, and indeed the common notion of success itself. Marty Friedman (Megadeth) and Tommy Gattis cut their teeth in this band, and the film opens a time capsule to reveal vintage video footage and unbridled interviews on subjects like how the PMRC helped and hindered ’80s Heavy Metal music, and how ‘hair bands’ of the time commercialized the public perception of the genre.

3-TRIÚR – IN SEARCH OF MUSICAL FORM
3-TRIÚR is a creative documentary on the ongoing collaboration between three of Ireland’s most distinguished musicians – Peadar Ó Riada, Martin Hayes and Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh – in an intimate portrait of “the act and art of making music”.

Einstürzende NeubautenLIEBESLIEDER
Einstürzende Neubauten are the undisputed originators of Industrial music, led by the magnetic Blixa Bargeld (who also played guitar for Nick Cave’s Bad Seeds). LIEBESLIEDER is an in-depth documentary taking a focused look at this highly innovative German group (formed in the early ‘80s), using more than mere musical instruments to create sounds, from power drills and jackhammers, to scrap metal and vocal contortions, they pushed the boundaries of conventional music to another dimension, but with a philosophy behind it.

BARÓN ROJO – Long Live Rock & Roll (Larga Vida Al Rock & Roll)
Barón Rojo (Red Baron) is one of Spain’s biggest rock groups of all time (even making the cover of Kerrang!). This documentary follows the band’s reunion once the original lineup received an offer to get together again, 20 years after their traumatic separation. The four musicians return to the road to face old demons of the past.

Bryan Habana back for DHL Stormers

The DHL Stormers team has been announced for the Cape outfit’s first Vodacom Super Rugby tour game of the 2013 season – against the Hurricanes in Palmerston North on Friday (kick-off 09h35 SA time).

The return of star speedster Bryan Habana, on the left-wing, is one of just three changes to the Stormers starting XV (from the Sharks match two weeks ago), with Damian de Allende dropping to the bench and Gio Aplon shifting across to the right-wing. Habana, his country’s most-capped Test winger, is back to full fitness after sustaining a knee injury in early March.

Pat Cilliers will start at tighthead prop, in the only change up front, whilst forwards Scarra Ntubeni (hooker), Brok Harris (prop) and Rynhardt Elstadt (as lock and flank cover) and scrumhalf Nic Groom join the matchday squad – on the bench – this week.

Ntubeni – who picked up a shoulder injury during pre-season training – will make his first appearance of the season should he take to the field on Friday, whilst Elstadt is also back from a shoulder niggle after missing the Cheetahs and Sharks clashes.

Louis Schreuder will provide flyhalf cover from the bench, with DHL Stormers coach Allister Coetzee opting to give Elton Jantjies one more week to be ready for the clash against the Blues in Albany on Friday, May 3.

“Elton trained well this week,” said Coetzee. “I said earlier in the week that he was at 80%, but we want to ensure that he has a full week of training (next week) and that we have him ready for the Blues match.

“(Prop) Frans Malherbe is also getting a break this week, mainly as part of our rotation policy, but also to rest a slight AC Joint injury which he suffered against the Sharks.”

The DHL Stormers team to take on the Hurricanes is as follows:

15. Joe Pietersen

14. Gio Aplon

13. Juan de Jongh

12. Jean de Villiers (captain)

11. Bryan Habana

10. Gary van Aswegen

9. Dewaldt Duvenage

8. Duane Vermeulen (vice-captain)

7. Michael Rhodes

6. Siya Kolisi

5. Andries Bekker

4. De Kock Steenkamp

3. Pat Cilliers

2. Deon Fourie

1. Steven Kitshoff

Reserves:

16. Scarra Ntubeni

17. Brok Harris

18. Rynhardt Elstadt
