GP Finds Jozi
Every week, the Ground Patrol team will make sure that on Friday, you know how to spend your weekends. We'll list the five coolest things you can do too have an awesome weekend within a decent budget of R500!
This weekend South Africa celebrates 20 years of democracy so we've decided to do things that uniquely make us proud to be South African. Last week we went to go check out the premiere for one of SA's finest flicks yet: iNumber Number. Directed by Donovan Marsh, this pulsating action picture features some legendary actors including former Isidingo stars Hlubi Mboya and Brandon Auret as well as local favourites, Sdumo Mtshali and Presley Chweneyagae from Tsotsi fame. The story of this film takes you on an exciting journey of an undercover cop who puts his career and life on the line as he seeks to take down a gang and get revenge. If you're not into your action movies as much, then you're in luck as some local humor, drama and thriller scenes take this movie to an award winning level. Be sure to go check it out this weekend as it releases in local cinemas on Friday the 25th of April. Our democracy may be just 20 years old, but the local film industry is proving to be maturing way beyond its years.
Science Frikshun is back with an awesome lineup of DJs who are ready to drop some sick beats. If you like your music filled with dirty beats and disgustingly rad bass drops, then this one is going to be a massive party! Tasha Baxter, Mr. Green, and Mr. Mon top the lineup at Town Hall. R80 gets you in and the event starts at 8pm. Get your tickets here.
