GIG GUIDE - Event Details

Ben Salter And Dan Kelly (Of Australia)

Fri Jul 22nd, 2016

Doors open: 8:00pm
Gig starts: 8:00pm
Entry: R18

Cover charge: $5.00

Ben Salter - mystical, forthright, deep and charming; a modern folk hero - teams up with Dan Kelly, purveyor of emotional psychedelic dystopian comedy and social satire, for a double headline tour of New Zealand this July. For the ages.

Ben will play songs from last year's magnificent, critically adulated and psychically attenuated 'The Stars My Destination' LP, plus his old stuff, plus popular classics from The Inkspots, Edward Elgar and Bobby Darin.

Dan will charm your all five senses (all of them) by singing tunes from his sensibly sought after Coastal Mind Epic™ 'Leisure Panic' plus anything else you request from his extensive back catalogue.

They may also play a few tracks together.

This will be an adventure akin to the great fantasy epics from Tolkein to Peake to Iain M Banks. If you come w̶e̶ they will sing and dance and play guitar for you and do drum machines too.

Happening in our courtyard: DJ Josh on Decks + DJ Sal Valentine. Soulful times all night in the concrete playground.
