“Alternative” in music terms means anything from Rock to Pop, as long as it is a band playing the music, or it is being played live, basically. There are a few placed where you could go to see a live act, but only one place in PE has been around for a while, and only caters to live acts. That place is called; Jesters Alternative Club. This little club has hosted some big names, local acts include: Crash Car Burn, Fuzigish and a whole lot more. They have also hosted a few international acts.
The club has been stereo typed as being a metal club, but I assure you, this is not true. At Jesters, the owners believe that any music played by a band should be given the chance to be heard. Therefore, they host different genres on different nights. They have metal nights for all the metal bands, rock nights for rock bands and so forth...Jesters is also probably one of the bars with the coolest staff and the best prices. They are very well known for their “Happy Hour”. With a generous glass of wine for only R7, a double brandy and coke for R15, and Jagermeister and tequila for R10 a shot, with prices like these, it’s understandable that people finish their drink so quickly, or often even buy 3 or 4 drinks at a time during this hour. Even outside of this hour, the prices are spiffing.
