See the event guide below to view a list of our upcoming shows.
Mixing bits of pieces of indie, psychedelic, and surf rock, Marlin’s Dreaming is making the kind of music that’s chilled-out and calming, while incorporating enough flashes of energy to keep you moving
You Should Be Dancing” is a great big DISCO DANCING celebration! A night of exceedingly danceable disco hits. Classic disco tunes you would have to be a robot not to move to. A literal Boogie Wonderland! Unfortunately due to the return of level 2 Covid-19 restrictions on gatherings over 100 people this event has been postponed. The rescheduled date is Saturday 3rd October
Having recently finished the first wave of recording for their debut album, Soaked Oats are taking to the road this October for a string of shows up and down the country. The ‘Say Hey and Play Some New Ones’ tour will see them greeting faces throughout Aotearoa and trying out some new material for the first time.
Rising genre-defying MC and ex-carpet salesman Wax Mustang is a force to be reckoned with on any stage you find him. With music that somehow hits a balance between throwback hip-hop and 80’s rock, we’re not sure how he does it but it all adds to the enigma.

Performing brand new songs from his next, soon-to-be-recorded album, along with plenty of gems from his sprawling back catalogue, Don will play a string of shows with a full band comprising the mighty talents of Shayne P Carter (Dimmer, Straightjacket Fits), bassist/guitarist extraordinaire James Duncan (Dimmer, SJD, Punches) and legendary drummer/percussionist Chris O’Connor (Phoenix Foundation).
This show has been postponed – “We were really hoping to be able to get over to see you in October, but sadly with COVID travel restrictions still in place it’s not able to happen at the moment. Our team is hard at work rescheduling the shows, so in the meantime sit tight, hold on to your tickets if you can and we’ll have new dates for you ASAP” – GG
Based in Christchurch, The Haunters has been building an international reputation in the new order of alt-rock’n’roll. With sweltering hooks and raw emotional narrative, their sound says ‘put your arm around the one you love and remember that they won’t be there forever – but maybe that’s a good thing.’
Award winning New Zealand singer-songwriter, Reb Fountain, announces an extensive 10-date tour in celebration of her upcoming self-titled album, her debut for Flying Nun Records. Pulling out all the stops for this collection of noir punk-folk songs, Reb is taking her band the length and breadth of the country to deliver these news songs, and some old favourites, in full glory.
After far too many quiet nights at home, Ōtautahi singer-songwriters Jack Page & Emily C. Browning are due to gallivant round this fine nation, playing a string of double-headlined shows this November.
This show has been rescheduled – The young Australian born, Nashville based virtuoso recently described as ‘the finest guitar player of this generation’ has been selling out shows around the world and now brings his world tour to New Zealand playing an intimate Christchurch show April 30 at Cassels Blue Smoke!
