Like two weary vagabonds hitch-hiking along the open road with nothing but a guitar and a suitcase of songs and wayward memories, pop-folk duo Looking For Alaska are ready to set the New Zealand folk scene alight.

Members Aaron Gott and Amy Maynard offer up a sound rooted in country-style guitar and soaring harmonies woven together at their very fibre, intensified by their magnetic on-stage chemistry. They are visiting Palmerston North for the first time ever with their collection of original material, ranging from thigh-slapping, foot-stomping folk sing-alongs, to poignant heart-rending ballads drenched in melancholy. Accompanied by their band, Looking For Alaska have recently emerged from Roundhead Studios where they have recorded their debut album, set for release in October 2016.

Playing one night only at The Dark Room, they are sharing the stage with Wellington-based Scottish folk troubadour Frank Burkitt. Don't miss out on what's sure to be a night of amazing music!

Show starts at 8pm. Tickets are $20 or $10 concession, presales available from The Dark Room box office.
