Doors open: 10:30pm
Entry: R18

Cover charge: $35.00

BEFFY and the accompanying visuals made by longtime collaborator Parallel Teeth usher in an all new project for Ladi, Parks, Julien Dyne, and Brandon Haru, the four musicians collectively known as Ladi6, it's the sound of a band focused on feel over thought. This time around we wanted to get away from making a specific type of record and just feel our way through what came out, Parks explains. We just wanted to trust ourselves and be authentic to what came naturally, Ladi continues.

To accomplish this, in July 2015, the band introduced The Alpha Sessions. Over nine shows held between two cities, they brought their studio set-up, vintage keyboards, drum machines and all on stage. Through live, in-the-moment improvisation, they turned these freestyle jam sessions into the songs that birthed BEFFY and inspired their new recording projects.

2016 sees the Alpha Sessions go national. Once again bringing the band's studio space out into the public domain. Live in a freestyle environment in Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch Ladi6 will deconstruct, recreate, create from scratch and air out re-worked versions of some of their Ladi6 favourites as well as introduce their new material to the stage.
