Neil Young Tribute
No other musical act has influenced Akkedis as much as Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young.

Each performance of the classic rock trio from Somerset West contains at least three renditions of Young’s well-known (and lesser known) hits, like ‘Old Man’, ‘Down by the River’ and ‘Harvest Moon’. To do a full set, covering their idol’s work, is like a dream come true for twins Arthur and Rudi Dennis and bassist Adrian John Graham.

Some of these may relate to our idealistic visions of fatherhood; others may be rooted in our experiences of our fathers and fathering; and, in the definitions and roles that society has perpetuated about what it means to be a father.

November Girl Geek Dinner
Topic: Looking back to look ahead – planning for a new year.
“Plans are nothing; planning is everything.”—Dwight D. Eisenhower
It is that time of the year, again—time to consider our New Year’s resolutions and our hopes and dreams for the coming year. But whether related to business, health, finances, or something else, most of these “plans” fail to have actual planning behind them. The theme for our end of year dinner is help you take account of where you’re at in 2017 and help you plan for 2018.

As the scratchings on the 70 000-year-old Blombos ochre reveal, that non-figurative mark-marking long predates the very notion of ‘art’ itself.

Until 31 May 2018 |  ‘Alternative Press’ – Work of Derek Bauer
Is an exhibition of original cartoons dedicated to the talent of cartoonist Derek Bauer. He became well-known for his inherently irreverent cartoons and caricatures of politicians and other prominent figures during the troubled and Apartheid-stricken South Africa and the turbulent world in the 1980s.

Legend has it that old Rasta on the Roof found this shipwreck in the Old Harbour and turned it into a pub and restaurant called ‘The Thirsty Oyster Tavern’, where, to quote him, ‘home is where the anchor drops’. So why not drop anchor here for a while, crack open that careworn shell and slip into our relaxed and friendly ambiance – whether it be in the cool breezes of summer or by the warm, cosy fires in winter – we have 3 fireplaces to ensure you stay nice and warm. And that infamous South Easter? Don’t fuss! We’re pretty sheltered, tucked in as we are, between the Naval College and the National Sea Rescue facility.

Friday 3 November 2017
Creating a Desirable Future
From the colonial era to the outset of the post-colonial era, the grand narrative of African society has been one steeped in reactionary approaches to shifts in global matters and perspectives. Discussions on the prominent issues faced by the African continent and how best to overcome them, are often centered on the topic of development; but more specifically economic growth. This is often coupled with the call for an extensive re-imagining of contemporary social systems and institutions; under the banner of decolonization. But how does a society move from a reactionary position to one where it shapes a future of its own choosing; without an understanding of how and what it gives meaning to?
