National Wake @ Amoeba Hollywood – 7pm, Free, All Ages
Ivan Kadey – founding member of the legendary South African Apartheid-era mixed-race, punk band, performs live to celebrate Light in The Attic’s release of Walk In Africa 1979-81 (on CD & LP) – the band’s complete recordings. The South Africa of the late 1970s was neither the right place nor time to launch a mixed-race punk band. Yet, following the student-inspired Soweto Uprising of 1976, it was also exactly the right conditions to foster a band like National Wake, one formed in an underground commune, and one whose very name exists in protest at the divisive, racist apartheid regime. Czech State Radio memorably described the band as “perhaps the most dissident music scene of the 20th century: a multi-racial punk band in a fascist police state.”
