This coming Friday, September 19, I’ll be playing some records down at the San Fran for a late show directly following Jeremy Elwood’s Election Special comedy show. Since it’ s the eve of the election the theme will continue and it’ll be a set of my favourite New Zealand music.
Late last year I did the Great Kiwi BBQ soundtrack – I won’t be repeating that line-up, though one or two of those same songs will surely make an appearance.
Starting after 10pm and rolling through until the wee smalls it’s going to be Dance Exponents and Spines, DD Smash and Shihad, Lawrence Arabia and Phoenix Foundation, Prince Tui Teka and Tall Dwarfs, Chris Knox and The Chills, The Clean and The Bats, David Kilgour and The Mutton Birds. Anything – and everything – that’s good.
So come on down for a beer and an after-party if you’re going to see Neil Finn’s gig that night. Or stay on after the comedy show. Tell your friends and celebrate election eve with some of my favourite (and your favourite?) Kiwi tunes.
