■ Dan Patlansky will launch his new album, Perfection Kills, at Kirstenbosch on Sunday March 25. The album is the follow-up to 2016’s critically acclaimed Introvertigo, which was voted number 1 blues rock album in the world by Blues Rock Review USA, and his ninth studio offering. Perfection Kills was recorded at Scherzo Productions, a recording studio in Dan’s home town of Pretoria, with Dan producing the album himself, something he hasn’t done in years. “Perfection Kills is all about my vision of making a record that still makes the songwriting a priority as in the past; the final product delivers a far more real and organic result.” Dan recorded the 10 tracks to sound similar to what they would live. He is currently on his UK launch tour for the album. Tickets for his Kirstenbosch show range from R135 to R160 each. Gates open at 4pm. Book through Webtickets. Northern News is giving away two pairs of tickets to see the show. All you have to do to enter is SMS your name, email address and NBPatlanksy to 33258 before 10pm on Sunday March 18. SMSes cost R1.50 each and winners will be contacted by the organisers.
