Legendary Capetonian ska/punk band, Hog Hoggidy Hog, have placed a firm hoofprint in the hearts of South African music lovers. For over a decade, the Hogs have toured South Africa, and to Europe, spreading their brand of “hogcore” punk rock to the masses. Throughout their time, the band have released three studio albums, as well as several EPs. After months of preparation and hard work, their fourth studio album is ready at last, with tour dates to boot!
Tour dates are as follows:
Friday 27th March – The Bohemian in Richmond, Johannesburg.
– With Pestry, Swivel Foot and Submachine.
Saturday 28th March – Frontside Skate Park in Alberton, Johannesburg (All Ages Show)
– With Vendetta Cartel, Gross Misconduct, The Reverends and Touched By Nausea.
Saturday 28th March – Black Dahlia in Boksburg, Johannesburg

Friday 3rd April – Wynberg Sports Club, Cape Town (All Ages Show)

Cape Town is right at the end of the tour. Its sure to be well worth the wait. I’ve loved the Hogs since the first time I heard them. Their music is an excellent marriage between unique African influence and raw punk rock. If you’re near one of the above venues and can get yourself to the launch show, you will not be dissappointed.
