Analog On Tap webticketsThe Sir Thomas Brewing Company outside Stellenbosch is the spot to head for the upcoming Analog on Tap series.

Arno Carstens Trio, Albert Frost Trio and Matt Carstens usher in the showcase.

The gig happens on Friday, 10 October, 2019 at 4pm. Analog on Tap sees Arno Carstens performing his latest single Empire of the Night, and he’ll also exhibit his own paintings and signed prints, which will be sold on the day.

The analog vibe

Sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll have been the go-to slogan for the raw sound of music played through robust analog sound equipment – and that’s drive behind the Analog on Tap event.

The Sir Thomas Brewing Company is known for their carefully crafted range of boutique beers, which will be the keystone to this audible experience. Add some good musicians, a bit of ‘cool’ and a 32-year-old Neve sound desk mixed by a Grammy Award-winning sound engineer, and you have a recipe for rock ‘n’ roll in its rawest form.
