Forget your Sunday Roast and come have a quick pint (from 4-7 pm) and support some local bands.

'ON THE VERGE' are Christchurch's answer to Wham! Childhood chums Mych Dowson and the other one (who nobody ever remembers,Simon), make their debut performance. Mych is often mistaken for George Michael, especially during his frequent visits to Hagley Park conveniences. The duo are now set to become the biggest stars to come out of Dunsandel since 'Eric the mime artist Cockatoo'. Their revivalist soul meeting unabashed bubblegum pop will remedy most known tummy ailments.

MEGAHERTZ are currently riding high on the RDU Indie charts with their single called 'Tuesday'. This suggests that their soon to be released 2nd album is going to be something very special. You can download the single from their Bandcamp page. Bio pics of the band members may seem more suited to being used as mug shots on Crimewatch, but your ears will appreciate what your eyes do not. These guys demand not only a good spanking, but also a good listening to.

WhEn PeTs ATtaCk! are New Zealands #1 purveyors of Dementia Rock. I can not recall any band being anywhere near as good at Dementia Rock as these guys. To be honest, I can't actually recall any other band. Some ardent fans have even compared the music of the band to the noise of a coffeemaker in the morning. Every concert is like a debut performance for these guys. If they don't get lost on the way, then this should be a great opportunity to hold each others hands and have a little singalong.
