Every Thursday night at 20:30, Wolves (fb) hosts the Howl sessions, where promising Joburg bands can set new material loose on a crowd of coffee-sipping hedonists and celebrities (such as the star from the film Jozi). On this fuzzy photo, the band Shortstraw can be seen working the xylophone. The café is run by a creative couple who bake really good cakes and sell CDs (download their excellent mix tape here), expensive magazines, fudge and sandwiches. Find Wolves in Illovo, the murky transit zone between Rosebank, Sandton and Melrose Arch.
