When I’m in Wellington in-between Christmas and New Year’s – my favourite time to be in Wellington, the city is sleeping, it’s holiday-time – I play a DJ set up at the San Fran. I missed the chance last year due to being away for a long stretch, but often at this time of the year I’m there with a bunch of records, playing Kiwi classics…
This year I’m going to play the Kiwi classics, sure, but I’m also going to set sail into Yacht Rock territory too.
We’re talking Friday, December 28, 2018 – I’ll be up there for a 5pm start. So the workers can knock off and joint the holiday-goers, and staycationers…
The balcony will be open, the bar will be stocked, it’s free entry and I’ll be playing my favourite summer sounds from classic to kitsch and back – songs from my favourite albums and heaps of 45s too no doubt.
I’ll be playing through the night – if it’s a big one so be it, if it’s low-key that’s also fine. I’ll have the tunes to see us through.
Friday, December 28, 2018 – from 5pm, Summer Sounds with Simon Sweetman and the San Fran, Cuba Street, Wellington.
