Although it may be dull and gloomy for some artists who are used to the bright lights and big stages, because of the pandemic, smaller more intimate events has been the order of the day all over the world.
Well-known live musician Slickartie recently decided to do just that and invite about 40 people to a live show for N$100, which sold out in less than 24 hours. “These types of small intimate shows are in high demand everywhere during this pandemic, because of what people think the new normal is, and that is being around a few people while still trying to have fun and enjoy themselves with their loved ones,” he said.
The show will be held at Vinyl Café in Zoo Park on Friday 5 February and Slickartie told unwrap.online that he plans to share his feelings with the audience with a mixture of old and new songs. “If you have been to any of my shoes then you must know what type of connection I invoke with my people.
People all kind of feel the same way because of the pandemic, some lost jobs others lost something else. But people will still pay a good price to see a representation of that pain through art,” Slickartie says that he will be doing more intimate shows as the year progresses.
