There’s no such thing as a free lunch, right? Well, here’s a free show without a catch.

The blokes from Fokofpolisiekar have aced their recent ThundaFund crowdfunding campaign, an effort to raise a target of R500 000 to fund their first full-length studio album in 11 years. Over R700 000 was raised for the band from public generosity, with the target having been reached within nine days of launching.

A free show for Cape Town was promised by the band upon the campaign’s inception, and now the rockers are sticking to their word by offering a free show at Mercury Live on the 25th of May. Doors will open at 19:00 on the night, with the band taking to the stage at 21:00. Due to the club’s capacity of 400 people,¬†entrance will be on a first-come-first-serve basis.
