Gig starts: 8:30pm
Entry: R18

Cover charge: $20.00

Another installment of the dance-friendly housewrecking blues & calypso absurdist mashup known as Storehouse - at the Grey Lynn Ballroom, AKA the private function room above the Grey Lynn RSC, 1 Francis St. (Cheap bar!)

Aside from touring in the UK, Switzerland, Holland and the US, Storehouse has opened for artists including Trinity Roots, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis, Leon Russell, John Butler Trio, Charles Bradley, Son of Dave, C.W. Stoneking, Otis Taylor and Derek Trucks - who remarked, ďYou donít hear that anymore; beautiful tunes, beautiful groove!

Guitarist Tom Rodwell's uniquely primitivist yet dance-orientated take on rhythm and blues music takes cues from calypso, slave-era spirituals and West African juju music - making his playing thoughtful, hard to categorise, yet instantly accessible, and bursting with salacious and surreal lyrics. As a producer he recently released the debut LP of blues-noir singer Coco Davis, Old Haunts and as a session musician Rodwell has worked with Don McGlashan throughout his critically acclaimed Lucky Stars.

By turns wild, angry, hypnotic and sensual, itís as uncompromising as it is funky and some of the best live music Iíve seen,Ē remarked Blues in London.

Sheffield's answer to Lightnin' Hopkins, - NME.
