This passed saturday The Exploited played live in Johannesburg. They have been playing punk rock since 1980 and I wasn’t even alive then. The singer honestly had the most stage energy I have ever seen in my life. The show got completely out of hand and I saw people actually getting trampled. I was pretty scared so I just hung out in the backstage and watched the show from a safe place. It was really complete chaos as my buddy, Tyrone, explains.

It was good though and I got some pretty cool photographs. You can see in the third one how much spit and sweat was flying around. I buried myself in my hoodie and am taking my camera to Nikon right now for a clean up.

Thanks so much to Nick from Punk Safari for bringing out bands and supporting the scene here so much.
