First Thursdays Braamfontein

Thursday Jun 6 17:00–22:30 …       7 Reserve St, Braamfontein
On the first Thursday of every month in Joburg you can look forward to contemporary art, live music, DJ sets, poetry, performance art, pop-up bars and more in one of the city’s two art districts – Rosebank and Braamfontein, as part of the First Thursdays event. Pick up a First Thursdays map at one of the participating venues and take a stroll through Braamfontein's colourful streets hopping from venue to venue. Major First Thursdays hotspots in the neighbourhood include Reserve Street, 99 Juta, Wits Art Museum, The Grove square and the area around the corner of De Beer and Juta Streets.

Puma x #SelectSessions with The Brother Moves On
This month's PUMA Select Sessions party is an extra special edition hosted at the new Dassler venue (accessed via the Puma Select store at corner Melle and De Korte Streets) that is headlined by one of South Africa's most influential alternative bands The Brother Moves On, who celebrate their 10th birthday this month. Entrance is free, but you must register online first. Those wearing Puma gear also get to skip the queue.

First Thursdays at WAM
Wits Art Museum celebrates Africa Month this Thursday with a special Africa Month themed evening of live music and discussion. The evening starts with DJs Charles Leonard, Bro Slovo and Ms G on the decks followed by a jazz performance at 20:00 by Andre Petersen.
